Next Restore Weekend - January 28-29th
Every fifth Sunday (and Saturday) ANC closes the doors on our regular services to "Serve our City" in a different way.
Here are this Restore Weekend's opportunities;Downtown Grill Out (Under I-35 between 7th and 8th Street) - this has been a mainstay for Austin New Church for over 8 years. Going out and grilling hamburgers for the homeless community of Austin.Settlement Home - SH's mission is to promote healing and growth in children, young adults and families by providing a continuum of care, support and resources. We serve individuals with histories of severe trauma, abuse and neglect. Texas Ramps - All over the state of Texas ramp building teams will be out in force this week doing what they do best: building ramps for elderly and disabled people who cannot afford them on their own.Austin State Hospital - We will be working with the residents/clients of ASH to help decorate banners and posters to eventually hang around the gym or on the units for employee appreciation week. Ideas could include "thank you's", positive affirmations, etcera. ASH would provide all of the materials. Crafting/art can be a great icebreaker! This event is 18 years and older, no exceptions. Sunrise Community Church (1/28) - Sunrise Community Church allows many ministries to serve out of their fellowship hall and their pastor asked for help in the following areas; deep clean the Fellowship Hall and the kitchen, rake the leaves & rehang/adjust a few cabinet doors. (Kid friendly) Foster Home Study Repairs - We will be assisting a family who has taken some children in through Safe Families, transitioning into Foster Care and hopes to fully adopt their children. We'll be making repairs to become compliant for the Foster System Home Study.
