It takes many volunteers each week to help fill these backpacks with food and necessities! We work with Karnes City schools in order to make sure kids in need have readily available food for the weekends during the school year. Please contact the office if you are interested in volunteering for shopping, sorting, or delivery of the Weekend Backpacks.
We join Alaska Missions to help host service projects for Alaskan residents camping out on the Cook Inlet beaches at the Kenai and Kasilof Rivers. Thousands of Alaskans are dip-netting sockeye salmon as an annual family event. Our ministry approach is gentle servanthood and need-meeting through various methods: Kids Clubs, Bounce Houses, Prayer Walking, Traffic Control, Trash Pick-up and serving free hot dogs, water and hot cocoa, sharing Christ in personal and relational ways. We engage the public in this secular forum through servant evangelism. This is "Beach Reach" Alaskan style!
Trips are usually in the summer and are open to members of FBC Karnes City. Contact the office if you are interested in more information.

TSEASA is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to bring the message of Jesus Christ to the lost in South Africa and other parts of the world. FBCKC partners with Dr. Jan Viljoen, a native African Baptist Pastor who leads the ministry efforts of TSEASA.
Since its inception in 2002, the Lord has used TSEASA to start churches, minister to the homeless, the hungry, the addicted, and those afflicted with aids. TSEASA Ministries (Africa) is registered as a training center at the International Bible Institute through The University of the Americas. Evangelism is at the heart of all ministry projects. Tsea is a tribal word that literally means “an abundance of water”. Jesus Christ is the "Living Water" that must be made available to the entire world!
