2012 Arco iris
|LVCC Programs - Arco Iris|
Whew! It is already August, and summer has flown by. We had a great summer at La Villita with all our different youth. We had 11 Junior Leaders and Leaders and 75 registered youth for Arco Iris. Our Junior Leaders and Leaders completed a week of intensive training and four weeks of camp. At training Leaders were able to work with youth from other communities and churches, develop activities to complete with the youth, engage in interactive bible lessons, and gain useful work skills. Our 75 youth completed a wide range of activities and lessons all focused on Jesus and His power. We also went on multiple field trips to different locations around the city.
While, the summer has flown by, we are excited about the time that we had with youth, and we are praying that the relationships we formed will be able to grow and deepen with the goal of developing personal, connected relationships with Christ.

Spring Youth Group
In May, the Youth Group had their final Friday Night meeting. On their last night, the youth went out to Target and played a competitive team-game that involved filling a shopping cart with random items, then swapping carts, and rushing to return the items to their respective locations, where the team that finished first wins. The night ended with each person drawing another youth's name from a hat, and doing a secret $5 gift exchange. Earlier in the month, the Youth Group did a yard sale which raised funds to help their yearly service trip to Kansas, which is coming up in July. The youth are looking forward to a busy summer, where many youth group members volunteer their time with the church's program: arco iris. Here is a picture of youth group leader Hassan Chaudry with two of our youth and the youth group garage sale.

2012 Dia Del Ninos
Our 2012 Dia Del Ninos Literacy Fair event was a great success. We had 140 plus people in attendance, we connected with 27 new families, and we handed out over 400 literacy games. Our hope is be able to form deeper relationships with these families and get them connected to the church, small groups, and ministries, so that they can grow in relationship with Christ. While we want to address the issues of literacy in our neighborhoods, we also know that apart from God all things are meaningless. Thanks to all those who helped, and if you couldn't make it this year, it is an annual event. Check out the pictures below!
