Mission and outreach are at the core of what we’re about at Dripping Springs UMC. We challenge our congregation to go outside the walls of the church to share the love of Christ. We participate in a wide variety of missions and outreach programs: locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.

This pamphlet briefly describes some of the different mission and service opportunities that are supported through DSUMC.  Our church is very outwardly-focused, and there are ways to serve for everyone.  The opportunities range from making phone calls from your home, to flying overseas to serve as part of an international mission team.  Many other church groups such as UMM, UMW, Youth, Children’s Ministry and Sunday School groups also support additional mission work.  Information on their mission opportunities can be found by directly contacting these groups.

The Lord calls each and every Christian to “Go therefore and make disciples…. for Him”.  Some are called to go, while others are called to stay and support those who go.  Please look through the opportunities presented here and choose where you will serve.
 
 

 “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others,
as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10

 

The Misson Committee meets regularly to guide and direct the mission efforts of the church.  Comprised mainly of the people leading the various mission efforts, we ensure that all missions are publicized, promoted and funded properly.  The committee is open to anyone who may be interested. 

If you need more information about a particular ministry or would like to volunteer, contact the Team Leader directly, Mission Steward Vicky Mathews, or the Church Office 512-894-7123.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

KAIROS PRISON MINISTRY
 
The mission of Kairos Prison Ministry is to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities.

ONE MINISTRY, THREE PROGRAMS

KAIROS INSIDE – Kairos Inside creates Christian communities inside prisons that can transform lives, decrease prison violence, and reduce recidivism 
 
KAIROS OUTSIDE – Spouses, parents and relatives of those in prison often “do time” right along with their loved ones. Kairos Outside lets them know
they are not alone.
 
KAIROS TORCH – Kairos Torch volunteers mentor youth in prison, so they can begin to make better life choices.
