With a county as large as Bastrop, it can be difficult for faith communities across different denominations and geographic areas to connect about county-wide needs and resources. Faith Communities in Collaboration comes together to enhance the work done beyond congregation walls to engage both in their community and other underserved communities. Centers of faith have no geographic boundaries and are able to work outside their congregation walls to do things other groups that are more geographically-based cannot do, which helps foster inclusion and increase trust and respect through underserved communities.
Faith Communities in Collaboration strives to increase Bastrop County’s ability to bring faith leaders together to understand the importance of all faith congregations from historical context into the present, to foster inclusion and increase trust and respect. We seek to enhance work beyond congregation walls to improve the ability to help our entire community thrive and prosper, ensuring a better future for all of Bastrop County
