San Antonio Community Resource Directory
Canyon Lake Presbyterian Church (Faith / Christian )

Our story starts with a meeting in the Volunteer Action Center building in Sattler, TX, on Sunday, September 8, 1985. Fifty people had gathered in response to an announcement placed in the Canyon Lake Times Guardian, the local newspaper, by one Jewel Kincaid. This meeting, guided by representatives from Mission Presbytery, was to begin the process of organizing a new church.

Worship services began first in the Volunteer Action Center and later the local VFW Hall, where we would stay for the next few years. A rotation of retired pastors and senior students at the Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary led our services.

Mission work is one of the founding principles of our church, and there are many ways to get involved!

Little Free Food Pantry

What started as the Eagle Scout project of one of our high schoolers has grown into a service that provides critical aid to our community. Our Little Free Pantry makes deliveries every other week to several families in the area and also keeps a pantry stocked in our partnered Hill Country MHDD clinic for clients.

Act II Sewing

Act II Sewing is a group of ladies who meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 9:30 am to sew for a good cause. Some of their regular projects are stuffed animals for St. Jude Children’s Home, Presbyterian Children’s Home, and other organizations and occasions where children might need a bit of comfort.

They make clothing protectors, lap blankets, shawls, walker bags, and more for nursing home residents, hospice patients, and Meals on Wheels recipients. You don’t need to be skilled at sewing to help make these projects and more, just come by and lend a hand.

Kids Hope

Kids Hope is a national non-profit organization that partners young students in need with mentors from a local church, who provide a one-on-one relationship dedicated to supporting their growth.

Mentors meet with their students once a week for one hour, helping with homework, providing a listening ear, and being a steady source of support. Canyon Lake Presbyterian Church has been partnered with Kids Hope since 1998. If you would like to be a mentor or a prayer partner, please contact us to learn more.

Partnership with Mental Health Clinic

We are partnered with the Canyon Lake branch of the Hill Country Mental Health and Developmental Disability Center. The fully staffed mental health clinic operates full-time out of our Fellowship Hall and provides mental health, individual developmental disability, and substance abuse services to our community. If you are in need or wish to learn more, go to their website at or call their office at 830-387-5995.

Community and Fellowship

Here are some of the opportunities Canyon Lake Presbyterian Church offers to gather, find fellowship, and study:

Men’s Bible Study
Men’s Bible Study meets every Tuesday at 10 am, to read, discuss, and debate the scripture reading for Sunday’s worship service. We are a friendly group of guys and are always ready to welcome newcomers!

Presbyterian Women
Presbyterian Women meets at 9:30 am on the first Tuesday of each month for fellowship and study, often over breakfast. We are currently on summer hiatus, but we will resume in September with a new Bible study, focusing on the books of Luke and Acts. We invite all women in Canyon Lake and the surrounding area to join us this fall!

Life With God Class
The Life With God Class meets on Sundays at 9 am before worship. A sort of Sunday School for adults, this is a time to gather and discuss scripture and our faith and to prepare ourselves for worship.

Fellowship Events

5th Sunday Potluck Luncheons
We often hold a potluck luncheon after worship on the 5th Sunday of the month. We have a lot of great cooks, so it’s always a treat!

The Ladies Luncheon gathers at 11:30 am on the last Wednesday of the month. We meet at a different restaurant each month, so be sure to contact us to learn more.
