National Day of Prayer

The 2016 National Day of Prayer was held on Thursday, May 5. The Leander Prayer Breakfast was held in the parking lot of the Leander Police Department, from 6:45 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. The theme for this year’s event was "Wake Up, America".

HCCM Executive Director, Tiesa Hollaway, was the guest speaker this year. Over 100 local residents, community leaders, pastors and business owners joined together to pray for our community and our nation. Breakfast was provided by Smokey Mo’s Bar-B-Q.

A prayer balloon launch was held at the close of the event. A special thank you to Mayor Chris Fielder for the proclamation and State Representative Tony Dale for the resolution. Thank you to our community sponsors who made this possible:

  • Al Clawson Disposal
  • Connie’s Car Wash
  • N.E.W. Mini Storage
  • Smokey Mo’s Bar-B-Q
  • Walker Texas Surveyors

Laces for Leander

This non-profit community outreach came under the direction of Hill Country Community Ministries in late 2015. This event is held before school starts and allows low-income students in Leander ISD to "shop" for a brand new pair of shoes. The heart and idea behind it is, "What child doesn't want to start the first day of school with a brand new pair of shoes?"
Last year over 400 pairs of new shoes were distributed. The event will take place in August. Stay tuned for more details about ways to support our 3rd annual Laces event!!

"Hams for Hope"

Hill Country Community Ministries created a new event, Hams for Hope, in which we distributed 500 hams for Easter on Saturday, March 19 at HighPoint Fellowship church on New Hope Rd. HCCM clients and families nominated from member churches were given vouchers to redeem the day of the event. We also partnered with Heroes Night Out, Samaritan Health, Meals On Wheels, Drive a Senior, and other churches to make these hams available to families in our community. We were blessed to have amazing volunteers with a heart of service that gave of their time that day. We also want to thank our supporters and our community for the holiday food money donations. Without YOU we would not be able to do this!
