You're Far Happier Giving Than Getting

Jesus’ words are direct and cut to the heart of our tendency to live for ourselves:  “…it is better to give than to receive…” (Acts 20:35) 

We are celebrating the outcome of our first ever “Back to School Bash.” This was a tangible opportunity God provided to serve and be a blessing to under resourced students and parents at Oak Meadows & Decker Elementary Schools. Both schools are located a few miles from Community First! These are our neighbors and our volunteers and partners hit a home run. We handed out over 300 backpacks stuffed with school supplies, provided helpful back to school information and gave free haircuts to hundreds.   


Thanks to Austin Ridge Bible Church, LifeAustin, Hat Creek Burgers, Spirit 105.9 FM and Avenue Five Institute for teaming up with The Gathering and Mobile Loaves & Fishes to create a practical, life-giving ministry that facilitated the formerly homeless to give and serve folks in need. 

Thank you for caring and for investing in The Gathering at Community First!

We are a volunteer-led ministry that is 100% donor-funded through generous, tax-deductible contributions. The Gathering is currently facing a financial deficit and we appreciate your willingness to invest in this Christ-centered mission!
