2016 Arts Academy
 

Welcome to Neighbors in Action!

Graduation for Port Houston Women!

Our first week of Arts Academy was a roaring success! Over 60 children attended our programs, and has an absolute blast. Many beautiful crafts were made and relationships were formed. The next two weeks will continue with music and sports. What an awesome week! We are so thankful for all the volunteers, craft donations, and lunch donations that made this week possible.

In June, 17 Port Houston ladies graduated from a 10-month course with Rev. Sara Reyes from Kingwood United Methodist last Saturday! The graduation took place in Kingwood UMC and was beautiful and powerful. Rev. Reyes had been coming to Neighbors in Action every Thursday for the last ten months, offering a curriculum that she personally had developed, called "The Virtuous Hispanic Woman". The ladies received Bible based lessons on self-esteem, how to be a good wife and mom, how to manage finances, healthy nutrition, how to be a successful woman, domestic violence, and many more topics. For many it was the first graduation ever in their life! We will continue with a second course in August, that will go more depth about how to study the Bible and be a lay leader. 

Moms Retreat in San Antonio! We had an amazing and blessed time! On Saturday we participated in an all-day long retreat with the Focolare Movement in San Antonio, focusing on the topic of UNITY, and on Sunday, we worshipped, prayed and shared before visiting the San Antonio Missions National Park and the Riverwalk! Thanks for everybody who made this trip possible!

Our children were able to attend Student Life Camp for the first time ever this year! This was an overnight camp in Texas. This year's theme was "Messy". Our kids learned how despite our messiness, God cleans us up and loves us anyhow. Everyone had a great time playing games, worshiping and learning. It was definitely a weekend to remember. 

Our demolition is done on our new property! We are so excited to see the clean slate we have to work with. NIA has teamed up with architects from Metalab, and they have drawn up an incredible new center big enough to fill all our dreams. We cannot wait to see what this exciting new adventure brings for us. As always, we need YOUR help to keep this project rolling!

2016 Summer Programs

Our youth headed to Alabama for Student Life Camp this June. It was an amazing trip filled with laughs and spiritual growth. Our youth showed dedication in getting closer to God by taking notes and praying at the end of breakout sessions. The weekend was concluded by relaxing on the beautiful beaches of Alabama!

Update on New Property!

We have so many new additions to the schedule this year, and as always are looking for some enthusiastic volunteers to help out!
