October Update

We had some beautiful weather in October, which allowed us to get outside, play, and run off that after-school energy each day. We’ve continued looking at the life of David and all it teaches us about joy, sadness, forgiveness, fear, and so much else that applies to kids today. We also had the chance to …

September Update

Our September update is a little late, but better late than never! September has seen several new families move into our apartment communities, especially Glenwood, Ridgecrest, and Spring Terrace. It also means we’ve lost a few families from Cypress Creek and the North Grand Villas. So it’s been filled with hellos and goodbyes. We definitely …

End of Summer Update

It’s been a while since we’ve updated the blog. That’s because we had a fast and furious end of our summer. The last week of July, we took 45 kids to Hidden Falls Ranch for our annual Camp Awesome. We crammed as much Awesome as possible into 3 days. You name it, we did it …

July Update

It’s been over a month since we last posted – and that’s because we’ve been too busy! We had a youth group from Huntsville, TX come up the last week of June, and a group from Frisco come here the week of July 19. Both put on our ever popular “Week of Fun” on all …

June Update

Summer is underway, and we’ve already had an eventful first month – with more action on the way. We kicked off the summer fun with the Hillside Student Ministry. They brought games, water, bounce houses, and lots of new friends. They even brought the Amarillo Fire Department to Cathy’s Pointe to cool us off from …

May Update

The school year is quickly wrapping up. The kids are enjoying spring weather, learning about the life of Joseph, and are asking every week when we can start bringing water balloons. As the weather warms up (or rain continues to fall), we’re hoping our apartment communities will allow us to start meeting indoors again. Cathy’s …

April Update

We spent the last month going through the Easter story and handing out Easter good bags to all our kids. We’ve started a new series on the story of Joseph. And we loved every minute of the sunny spring weather that came our way (even if it was sandwiched by snow and drizzly rain).

March Update

We’re still rolling along and eagerly waiting for the chance to be able to use the indoor space at our apartment communities. We’ve battled cold, snow, and lots of wind the past few weeks – and have also experienced some beautiful days for meeting outside. Regardless, we’ve been having fun, and the kids have been …

January/February Update

It has been quite the start of the year for us! We’re still not able to meet indoors on any of our properties. We’re hoping that changes within the next couple months. But since the apartments we work in are managed my groups outside of Amarillo, those decisions won’t be made based just on Amarillo’s …

Christmas Fun!

Because of the generosity of so many of you, we were able to provide Christmas gifts to 114 kids from 40 of our families in need. In addition to that, we were able to connect many more of our North Grand Villas and Cathy’s Pointe families to the Sharing Tree Christmas Outreach down the road …
