AHBC believes that caring for creation is an act and celebration of faith. We have our own Earth Care Ministry that has done many educational events for the community. We have many congregation members involved in ReNac and C&R KuttBottle. We have outdoor worship services and speak up for climate justice.
Each week church members and friends gather to make quilts for people in need of prayer and encouragement. These are passed around during worship so that strings can be tied on the quilt as a prayer is lifted up over each knot.
Many church members volunteer in gardening programs at our public schools and community.
Volunteers pass out weekend food every week at TJR Elementary and AHBC participates in food programs in locals parks during the summer.
AHBC members began a non-profit to create beautiful things out of discarded glass. This effort continues and has expanded to now offer glass recycling in Nacogdoches, which AHBC supports with volunteers and funding.
AHBC has a long history of working on racial reconciliation and social justice issues. We have joint worship services with Zion Hill Baptist Church, participate in numerous marches and events.
We have done mission trips and local projects to enhance literacy. We also support our public schools through volunteerism in mentoring, carding, and food programs.
