Local Missions
 
1. Kairos: Through Kairos Prison Ministry we share the good news of Jesus Christ with unreached inmates, and equip incarcerated Christians to follow Christ. There are a number of opportunities for both men and women to participate. Life Church takes several trips each year inside the prisons to minister to the inmates. 
 
2. CC Mason: Through the Education Connection program, we partner with C.C. Mason, a local school in Cedar Park, providing food for under-resourced families, and tutoring for children that need help improving literacy skills.  
 
3. Angel House Soup Kitchen: The Soup Kitchen, located in Austin,  serves the poor who suffer from the lack of basic human needs: material needs, such as food, clothing, and household necessities; psychological needs, such as motivation, self-esteem, and rehabilitation; and social needs, such as support systems and meaningful relationships. A group from Life church volunteers at the soup kitchen the 3rd Sunday of every month.
