“If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother.”
Deuteronomy 15:7 (ESV)
Wimberley Fig Tree Outreach
Wimberley Fig Tree is a local nonprofit that helps feed children in need. Children who rely on the school free or reduced meal programs for their daily meals often have empty plates throughout the weekend. School staff help identify children who would benefit from the program and then are provided with backpacks filled with easy-to-open foods to eat for the weekends.

WPC Christmas Market
Our Christmas Market is always held on the third Saturday in November. Church volunteers sell crafts created from local vendor and artisans from across the globe. Proceeds help people in impoverished parts of the world and local organizations such as the Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center. There are also tables with information about local nonprofit organizations that help people in our community. WPC takes donations of behalf of the organizations. We are honored that our church gets to host such an important event. This is the one event that usually requires the most volunteers.
The Wimberley Ministerial Alliance (Operation Good Shepherd)
We are fortunate to live in an area where the ministers of the community gather once a month to share ideas and help the community as a whole. The WMA also sponsors an annual Thanksgiving Service and a Good Friday Service.
The four church-wide Special Offerings of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) are a collective witness to Jesus Christ’s love for the whole church. One Great Hour of Sharing, Pentecost Offering, Peace & Global Witness Offering, and Christmas Joy Offering provide opportunities for individuals and congregations to join together with each other and in partnership with other Christians in responding to a variety of concerns.
