Katy, TX News (February 23, 2017 – Kingsland Baptist Church (KBC) will celebrate a decade of community service Sunday, February 26, when its members take part in their 10th annual Caring for Katy event.
The church leaves its pews empty one Sunday each year and fills the city instead, meeting practical needs in neighborhoods, community centers, and local organizations.
Since 2007, the church has invested 750,000 dollars and 70,000 volunteer hours into the community with the help of 13,520 volunteers. In just one day per year, nearly 400 projects have been tackled, and the members are eager to add to those numbers this year.
“Caring for Katy is about closing the doors to the church and going out into our community to be the church — to be the hands and feet of Jesus and to love and serve others in practical ways,” said Missions Pastor Omar C. Garcia.
Projects complete, participants will return to Kingsland’s main campus to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Caring for Katy and the opportunity to have been a part of it.
