Christmas Parties

It’s always fun to end the year with our annual Christmas Parties at both properties. We eat way to0 many chicken nuggets, sing songs, read the Christmas story, and have a wonderful time. This year, an amazing home group from Paramount Baptist provided us with a bunch of gift bags to hand out all the kids at the party. So they were […]

Back to School Outreach

We handed out around 140 backpacks filled with school supplies for our annual Back-to-School Outreach in August. We did things a little differently this year.

Fun at Cypress Creek

I took a family vacation, but thanks to my friend Jeff Parsons and his ministry Mission Amarillo, the kids at Cypress Creek were able to have some fun.  He brought in a group for Huntsville, and sent them over to Cy Creek every afternoon for some fun, as you can see from the picture below. […]
