The Family Needs Field is where we seek to come alongside families in the midst of difficult moments of life. We desire to show love and compassion in the name of Jesus to those experiencing a recent loss, an unexpected pregnancy, and families in foster care.
ENTER the Family Needs Field with us:
- Congregation for Kids: this ministry equips the church to be engaged in the foster care system in order to be salt and light. They lead the way in caring for social workers, mentoring teens in foster care, caring for foster families, and becoming a licensed foster parent. Our church is hosting a “Mentor Match” event in March with the help of the Austin Connect Group.
- Love Life: A ministry with the goal of creating a culture of love and life where people stop running to abortion centers and start running to the local church. UHBC has partnered with Love Life by being involved in prayer walks at rallies and prayer walks at local abortion centers. Our prayer week is in July.
- Griefshare: This is a ministry for people who are grieving a significant loss. This is for church members and those in the community. There are single day events called “Surviving the Holidays” and “Loss of a Spouse”, and there are 13-week Bible study sessions at different times of the year. Discover the current schedule on the HUB HERE.
- Pregnancy Resource Center: A Christ-centered ministry committed to upholding the sanctity of human life and promoting sexual purity. UHBC has partnered with GATE PRC both financially and by collecting needed resources. The regular offerings given to UHBC allow the church to give $1500 a year.
