Every year a community organization in central Austin, Violet Crown Community Works, hosts a community festival. This year they asked our church to help out and we got to paint little kids faces. No one really kept track but it was estimated 250-300 little faces! It was a great way for us to serve the community and get to know the people.
Dropped off the paper work today for the school. It isn’t 100% done but it is moving us in the right direction. Our hope is to solidify some dates in the summer for us to provide “previews” and work our way toward a weekly gathering in September.
The school has some limitations as a location but overall we are excited about the opportunity. It is the only Pre K school in AISD and primarily serves low income families.
On May 2nd Violet Crown is going to host a festival in central Austin called “That Thing In The Park.” We came in contact with the organization through the Austin Dog Fair that we hosted a couple of weeks ago. They were so excited about the event they asked us to host a family activity at the festival.
As a team we tossed around some ideas and settled on face painting. Somehow one of the guys on the team already had 4-6 kits for face painting. Although this did bring some concerns about Nathan owning face painting kits I knew it was something that would be a lot of fun.
Today we got to have a picnic at Brentwood Park. It was something fun for our core team and it was a way to reconnect with some people from the dog fair. Overall it was a good time. The best part of the picnic was seeing our original core team challenge and cast vision to new people at the picnic. That was a lot of fun to see and experience.
April 5th we are going to have a picnic at Brentwood Park as a chance for people to get to know the people and vision of North Village Church.
