Mobile Loaves and Fishes™ (MLF) does more than feed those in need off the back of a truck. Our involvement in the downtown community coalition gives us opportunity to help in numerous ways.

 

The MLF team is in need of volunteers to pick up pastries and bread donations. If you have business contacts that might be willing to donate, please contact  Joe Bumbulis.

 

 

 
Interfaith Hospitality Network is a shelter program based on a national model that provides transitional shelter for families experiencing homelessness.  You can help by providing meals and support to families as they work toward achieving goals of permanent housing and self-sufficiency. Contact Joe Bumbulis    for more information.
There are many needs in Juarez, Mexico.  First Baptist Church, Amigos de Juarez , works closely with Dr. Marco Samaniego and the Hands of Luke ministries.  He works to feed the hungry, provide shelter for children, and offer the good news of Jesus Christ to those who need to know God's love.  FBC also partners with Amor Ministries to build housing, and Emaus Baptist Church for VBS, Vacation Bible School.  

 

  FBC participates in the build of at least one house each year.  FBC volunteers have joined other Habitat for Humanity  colleagues to help put a roof on the Aleman-Gomez home in a faith partnership involving FBC and several Presbyterian churches.  During 2010, FBC participated in the Austin Habitat’s FIRST-EVER Baptist Build. Highland Park Baptist, University Baptist, Church of the Savior, Manchaca Baptist, First Baptist, the Sanctuary, and Little Mt Zion have partnered together to give a home to Sylvia Rodriguez, her 15 year old daughter, Amy, and her 6 year old son, Luis.
 
Baptist Community Center  Food Drive
FBC emphasizes the problem of hunger and ways we can help. For decades, the Baptist Community Center Mission has provided food assistance to families in need. During 2006, groceries were provided to more than 600 families.  In the spring and fall FBC bring's contributions to the food drive.  Contact Joe Bumbulis  for more information.
 
    Each Christmas, FBC participates in Angel Tree, a  ministry of Prison Fellowship .  We purchase and deliver gifts to the children of inmates in their parent’s name. Each gift delivery also presents an opportunity to share the love and hope of Christ with each family. Through Angel Tree, these children feel a parent’s love, despite their absence.
