Outreach

 

St. Alban’s members serve our community and world in two main ways: through our Outreach Center and through our own local ministry partnerships.

St. Alban’s Outreach Center (321 N. 30th St.)

The St. Alban’s Outreach Center welcomes our outreach partners in ministry into the space formerly used by St. Alban’s Memorial School. For questions, please contact Jesse Lee, our Director of Finance and Operations. From the Outreach Center, we are pleased to minister with and to:

Central Texas String Academy

Using the Suzuki method, the Central Texas String Academy (CTSA) teaches children to play stringed instruments, mainly during the afternoon hours. CTSA students and instructors contribute to the worship life at St. Alban’s by playing in our highly attended Advent Worship for the Evening, which is an annual gift to the city of Waco. CTSA students also form an orchestra for occasional worship services and individual students provide music during communion, mainly during the spring. For more information, see www.centraltexasstringacademy.com

12 Step Programs

Numerous 12 Step Programs use the Outreach Center for their meetings, such as Al-Anon, Al-A-Teen and Overeaters Anonymous. For more information, see http://centexintergroup.com.
