“As God has loved us, we will meet people on common ground and journey together to the higher ground of life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Reggy Hiller – Missionary to Eastern European Refugees
Southwest Central is the sponsoring congregation for Reggy Hiller’s missionary work. Reggy lives in Vienna, Austria and ministers to the people of her city and the many Middle Eastern and African refugees that come to their community. She often feeds people both literally and figuratively, by providing hot meals to hungry people and free Bibles to those who would like to study. Read Reggy’s latest newsletter here.
Reach 2 Teach
On Wednesday nights, Southwest Central is home to Reach 2 Teach, a tutoring collaboration between the Weekley YMCA, City of Refuge, and our congregation. We offer personal tutoring to children of the neighborhood who need assistance. This is followed by the congregational meal we enjoy as part of Cafe Grace.
We are one of the supporting congregations of The Point, the University of Houston campus ministry. Once a semester, our congregation provides a Wednesday lunch for the students that are part of the organization. You can support our efforts by providing financial donations or helping to prepare lunches and desserts.
Impact Church of Christ Lunches
Once a year, we work together to provide over 200 lunches for the Impact Church of Christ ministry in Houston. These are served on Sunday afternoons after church. We take financial donations to purchase the food and then many of our Bible classes suspend class for the day to be part of the brown bag lunch assembly line.
Ciudad de Angeles
Several members of our congregation take a yearly mission trip to Ciudad de Angeles, a family-based orphanage in Cozumel. They spend a week there serving on physical building projects and community initiatives. Over time, they have developed personal relationships with some of the “angels” and remain connected, via letter writing and financial support, throughout the year. All skill sets are valuable and welcome on this project.
