What a fast and furious month of June! Hillside church spent the first week of the month putting on block parties at our 4 biggest communities (Cathy’s Pointe, Cypress Creek, Amarillo Garden, and High Plains Ranch), complete with hotdogs, bounce houses, police officer visits, and water balloons. The youth group from the Fellowship of Huntsville came into town the week of the 20th to put on their annual “Week of Fun” on all of properties. We averaged over 125 kids each day across 9 locations. It was an absolute blast! And then we finished up this month with 3 Days of Fun for the North Grand Villas and Cathy’s Pointe kids with the Church at Bushland student group. Our kids love when TCAB comes out, because they always wrap up the fun with a giant Slip ‘n Slide and ice cream! In between all that fun, we held our regular afternoon activities filled with crafts, stories, and of course, water balloons.
In the middle of all that fun, we started work in a 10th apartment complex – Green Tree Village (located off NE 24th in the Eastridge area). They reached out to us in late May to see if we could provide something for their kids, so of course we said yes. We met for the first time on Monday, June 27 and look forward to connecting with more families each and every week. Pictures of all that fun can be found below!
