Busy June

We are into a very busy month.  While most of Phoenix slows down over the summer, it seems like we are doing the opposite.

Our first year of community tutoring in Guadalupe has successfully launched a three day a week community summer program.  Marina and friends are leading 25 Guadalupe kids on crafts, art, reading, sports, swimming and field trips to museums and libraries.  It is Tues – Thurs 8 am to 4 pm June 12 through July 25.

In Granada Estates, the Block Watch is launched!  We continue to pray and work with the community for its ongoing success

Another BlockWatch is starting in Palomino.  In South Phoneix, the Barrio Nuevo summer program continues as strong as ever and the MentorKids work at First Pentecostal is re-invigorating the community center as they do asset surveys and involve more of the community in the happenings.

In Mesa, Trinity is taking the next steps from their successful elementary school adoption to do some asset surveys with the parents and then involve the church members to help the parents out doing what they want to do.

Also – We have a Full Neighborhood Transformation TOT class scheduled for OCTOBER 3-5 at Living Faith Anglican on 1945 E Guadalupe Rd Tempe AZ.  Thursday and Friday Oct 3 and 4 6 pm to 9 pm, and Saturday Oct 5 8 am to 5 pm.  Cost if 50$ / person.  If you are interested, please register here: https://atm.webconnex.com/NTTOT10AZ
