Bacon Heights Baptist Church Stocked The Food & Hygiene Pantry!

By Recent News

We are so grateful to Bacon Heights Baptist Church for helping us stock the Food & Hygiene Pantry. They brought two truckloads of hygiene and pantry staples!

Bacon Heights has been a part of Lubbock Impact since the very beginning. They are always faithful to serve and play a role in furthering our mission of bringing hope, empowerment, and healing to the working poor of Lubbock, Texas. 

Just last month, in August alone, 217 individuals came to the Food & Hygiene Pantry needing essentials. There is a huge need for pantry goods and personal hygiene items. Participants are welcome to shop the pantry once a month and are giving a credit of $7 to shop for items.  This allows them to choose what they need instead of receiving items that are not beneficial to them.

If your business, church, team, or organization is interested in partnering with us, consider hosting a food or hygiene drive! This is a huge blessing to keep our pantry stocked. Please contact Becky Robertson at for more information.

Haircuts with Charlotte

By Recent News

We are excited to announce that Charlotte will now be offering free haircuts on the first and second Wednesdays of each month! Before COVID, Charlotte offered haircuts, and we are so glad she has decided that it is time to volunteer her services again! 

Charlotte has cut hair for 57 years! Her passion is to cut hair and make others feel special. Charlotte said, “I want to make a difference while I’m on this earth. It’s not about what we have, how much money we make…it’s about helping other people.” 

Charlotte mentioned she is providing free haircuts because “it’s a really hard economy for everyone right now.” She added, “If I can help someone else and make them smile, then I can smile. I want people to know that God loves you and so I love you too.” 

Lubbock Impact is very thankful for Charlotte’s service! She is helping people save money and restoring confidence and dignity by giving haircuts to men, women, and children. 

God is at work in Lubbock, Texas

By Recent News

As many of you know, we have the honor of partnering with Lubbock Unified Church by sharing a building. While Lubbock Impact is providing resources like the Food & Hygiene Pantry, Clothes Closet, Community Meal, Clinics, and more, Lubbock Unified Church is gathering for Bible studies throughout the week and church on Sunday mornings. 

Often, we get to share stories with Pastor Fermin of Lubbock Unified Church about people finding resources at Lubbock Impact and then learning about the hope of Christ because they stayed for Wednesday worship or went to church on Sunday. 

Pastor Fermin is in the building during the week praying and ministering to participants that are here for resources and programming.  He is never too busy to stop and minister to anyone walking into Lubbock Impact.  

A few weeks ago, Lubbock Unified Church baptized seventeen people at a community pool in Lubbock! Even one of the lifeguards on duty asked to be baptized because she had made a profession of faith earlier in the summer.

It is such a blessing to be able to serve the community alongside Lubbock Unified Church. We are constantly encouraged by the people coming to know God by the work that is being done. Hebrews 10:24 says, “and let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,” which is a great example of this partnership. A constant encouragement back and forth of how we can love others well.

Pancakes and Bingo Night

By Recent News

Just a few weeks ago, Lubbock Impact families were invited to a night of pancakes and bingo! 

It was a great opportunity for families to come together, enjoy each other’s company, and have a ton of fun. We wanted to give families a break from their normal routine, a night to not have to worry about cooking dinner have quality time. 

For some of the kids, this was their first time playing bingo. They loved learning how to play and competing with each other. The kids raved for the next week about how many pancakes they ate and all the prizes they won. This event brought so much joy to Lubbock Impact families. 

United sponsored the evening and brought their employees to come run the show. Thank you, United and UCrew for making this event happen!

A big round of applause for Lubbock Impact Work-Life Graduates!

By Recent News

We are so proud of the Lubbock Impact Work-Life course graduates! These individuals have shown commitment and diligence to see this course through to the end. 

Throughout this course, these graduates took a deep dive into learning how to apply their God-given talents and skills in the workplace. A big topic of discussion was that God created humans with different abilities and skills with the intention for us to work. Whether flipping hamburgers or working at a local grocery store, working to the glory of God can bring us joy and purpose. 

Pastor Fermin Sifuentez, a facilitator of the Work-Life Course, said, “This year’s Work-Life graduates are great examples of how investing in yourself always pays off. Their leaps of growth in a short amount of time displayed the fruit of this course and the capabilities possible for every individual.”

Graduates shared how their personal self-esteem increased because of this course. One graduate expressed her gratitude that the course helped her reflect on her own life and was encouraged by the stories of others.

They are now working with Goodwill Career Industries to get their job readiness skills and move forward to working. Please join us in prayer over these graduates during the next few weeks as they take the next steps in their work journey.
