Ten percent of our giving goes directly to supporting missions in our community and around the world. Our hope is to partner with those who are sharing Christ in areas where we can not.
OCC is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse. Shoe boxes are filled with small gifts, toiletries, school supplies, etc. and shipped to underprivileged children all over the world. MBC collects various items all throughout the year and has a workday the 1st Friday of every month, and then has a box filling party in November before they are shipped off. MBC usually fills and ships out between 800-1,300 boxes each year! Also, a group from MBC travels to the Dallas distribution center to help inspect all boxes within the region before their final shipping to the children. To find out more information about OCC or to volunteer to serve in this ministry please contact Marta Knight.
The Angel House Soup Kitchen feeds between 300-400 free meals every single day to the homeless. Churches throughout the Austin area put together teams of about 4-6 people who serve on a rotational basis each month of the year.

We believe fostering/adoption is something we are called to help in as believers, whether that is being a parent of these children or helping support those parents. God adopts us as His children when we place our faith in Him. He calls us to take care of the widows and orphans and those that can't defend themselves. Our heart for this ministry is to be a place where foster and adoptive families and kids can come and feel supported.
For additional information, contact Claire Davis.
Project Linus provides handmade blankets for children in crisis: sickness, disaster, family problems, etc. MBC has a group of volunteers who make the blankets at home and then meet at the church on the 3rd Saturday of each month to label and bag the blankets before being sent to hospitals, shelters, police departments, etc.
For more information or to volunteer to serve in the Project Linus ministry, please contact Brenda Kilburn.

The Austin Disaster Relief Network is comprised of churches, ministries and businesses within the Christian community of Greater Austin to form a disaster relief alliance to help those in need in times of disaster. ADRN's vision is to serve Christ by establishing a church network in the Greater Austin area that will meet the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of those affected by disaster (Luke 10:25-37). ADRN seeks to accomplish this vision by building a communication infrastructure that will enable and empower the Body of Christ to organize, mobilize, connect, prepare, train and respond quickly in the event of a disaster, great or small.
Manchaca Baptist is a proud partner of the ADRN Network, and you can sign up to be a part of this great ministry. Email the Church Office or go to the ADRN website (http://www.adrntx.org/) for more information.
Mobile Loaves and Fishes' Community First Village is a 27-acre master-planned community that provides affordable, sustainable housing and a supportive community for the disabled, chronically homeless in Central Texas.
We have partnered with MLF to help build micro-homes in the village which cost about $20,000 each. To date, we have officially sponsored two homes and are working towards a third. Part of the MBC's Mission's budget is donated directly to MLF for future houses to be built.
Outside of giving, you can get involved by visiting their website for and participating in their service opportunities.
