In the New Testament, the book of the Acts of the Apostles gives us a glimpse of the early church and how it came to be and how it functioned as the Body of Christ. Very early on in the life of the church we find that the people devoted themselves to the apostle’s teaching (scriptures), and to fellowship, the breaking of bread and the prayers (Acts 2:42.)
Fellowship is one of the foundations of our development as a faith community and how we come together as a congregation. As we learn to know one another and engage one another in our personal lives, so will our journey together be one in which we experience it as one united body of Christ.

Christian Visitors visit patients at Hill Country Care on Hwy 290 in Dripping Springs and Stonebridge Health Center on Circle Dr. towards Austin. The patients are selected by the social workers or activity directors of these establishments, so you won’t be required to make “cold” calls. Please contact Bill Haring for more information about getting the training to make you feel comfortable serving this outreach ministry. “Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.” –Philippians 2:4
