Meeting Needs

Meeting Needs

We all need help, for different reasons in life, and in different seasons of life. Maybe you need someone to visit you, or to simply listen to you and help you find your way out of a dark place. Or maybe it’s something more tangible, like needing food.

We can help you.

Illnesses and Bereavement

When the diagnosis of disease or terminal illness comes, you and your family need someone to help hold you up. Our Pastoral Care ministry is for you.

We are guided by the promises in James 5:11, 13-15 “…the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful…and prayer offered in faith will restore…” and in Isaiah 53: 4-5 that reminds us that “Our grief or sickness He Himself bore, and our sorrows or pain He carried…”

Our pastors visit area hospitals and facilities throughout the week and would love to visit you or your loved one. To schedule an appointment, to share a concern, or to notify us of medical emergencies, call 512.892.2703. After hours, follow the prompts for leaving a message for the pastor on-call.

Food Pantry

The Food Pantry started in 1999 when we saw families who needed help during the tough times in life.

Each Thursday from 9 – 11:30AM in our Education Center Room 101, our volunteers are available to help people with food, Bibles, and a caring shoulder. To donate non-perishable food to the Food Pantry, contact our receptionist at receptionist@bbcfamily.com or call 512.892.2703.

Adults with Special Needs

The Friends Class is an adult small group that meets at 9:30AM on Sundays at our South Austin campus and is designed specifically for adults with special needs. In addition to Sunday morning Bible studies, the class meets monthly for social events such as bowling, dining out and various other social events in the Austin area. To learn more about the Friends Class, stop by the South Austin campus Welcome Center, or contact specialneeds@bbcfamily.com, or call the church office 512.892.2703, x1237.

Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing

You are important to us. Your thoughts, your skills, your hopes, your contributions — they all have a place here.

We are committed to meeting the needs and ministering to the deaf and hard-of-hearing.  We offer American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation during the 11AM service every week so that you can take part in worship with us. Interpreters are at the front right side of the Worship Center. Let us know if you don’t see one; we’ll help.

Our small Bible study group meets at 9:30AM every Sunday in the Education Center Room 107. This group is made up of a diverse group of people, including young adults, married adults, single adults, hearing, hard-of-hearing, and deaf. We communicate through a variety of ways, taking the Gospel across any communication barriers and right to the heart.
