*New Braunfels News
Tonight we had a blast at chicktime! We got to practice our individuality by making our own pillow cases. Thank you to Traniece for such a fun and unique activity. A big thank you also goes out to Bridget Sy for all the food she blessed the kids with including chicken casserole and rice. There was not a hungry belly in sight. Spending just a couple hours with these great kids brings me joy beyond words.
Tonight at Connections Individual and Family Services was another amazing event for the kids.Thank you Lori for providing a family style feast on Panda Express, the kids savored every bite !We would like to thank Merillee Wisk Berger for all the activities she brought. Let’s not forget a big thank you to Guardians of the Children – hill country for donating all the stuffed animals, bracelets, and stickers.
The children had an amazing time and the room was filled with laughter, joy, and happiness. We want to thank all the volunteers for the continued help and support for the children. Be sure to follow our Facebook page with updates for upcoming events.
Chicktime tonight couldn’t have been sweeter we had the perfect cold weather meal and made Valentine’s Day cards. The fellowship was wonderful. If you’d like to volunteer with amazing humans who serve incredible youth meet us the last Monday of every month for a really great time.
Thank you to all our volunteers who braved the cold weather to give the youth a little piece of heaven tonight !
Chicktime last night was full of fellowship and joy !
Join us next month at Connections Individual and Family Services
Chicktime New Bruanfels Downtown met last night for our monthly workshop .
Pizza, dominoes, greeting cards, goat milk soap, great conversation.
Two hours … hearts changed.
Please consider hanging out with us one month.
The kids need role models.
The kids need to laugh.
The kids need to feel encouraged.
The kids need people in their corner.
It was a blessed evening and we can’t wait to be back in August!…
If you find yourself disappointed that Chicktime New Braunfels Downtown doesn’t have volunteer activities you are in a good place to explore the idea of building a team and re-launching the chapter! The children at Connections love our workshops and we feel the call to find a new leadership team to continue the legacy started there. The children at Connections have faced many hardships and Chicktime workshops offer them hope and encouragement and of course lots of love and laughter.
If you have a heart for children and/or if you have supported Chicktime New Braunfels Downtown from the sidelines and want to do more….now is the time to act! We will give you all the training you need and help you transition into the leadership role.
Please contact, Lori Rhodes, Chicktime Founder, at email@example.com for more information. Feel free to look up chicktime.com and find out more about being a Chicktime leader. We promise it’s easy, not time consuming and will change your life.
Come be blessed by being a blessing!
Our Chicktime Partner is a 90 day emergency shelter for foster kids. Since Covid started, we have not been allowed to go there. We can drop things off on their porch though. They actually have one case of Covid at the moment.
Dropped off this snowman cake to celebrate the end of January. A basket of “snowballs” was also dropped off along with the instructions for a “Snowball Fight”. You can read the rules in one of the pictures.
After the snowball fight, they were told to not throw them away since there was a message in each snowball. Hope they had fun!!! I decided to make the snowman cake because I make it every year for my son who is 23 years old now! Then I thought up the snowball fight and found rules for the snowball fight online and changed them a bit.
Happy End of January!!
Chicktime New Braunfels Downtown will not be meeting in the month of May. As much as we miss our workshops and time with our Chicktime kids we want to keep everyone safe! We hope to resume things soon.
If you have any ideas on how you can love the kids from a distance like sending cards, snacks or activities….let us know. We will ask our charity partner how you can fulfill your idea and help you as much as we can be a blessing to our sweet kids
Sending our love,
Chicktime New Braunfels Downtown Leadership Team
God is using you because you are strong enough to do His work. ???? What a wonderful evening we had yesterday @ Connections! The talented Lora Williams captured everyone’s hearts as she spoke about the choices we have in life & the endless love that He has for us. She unapologetically told the story of her past (the good, the bad & the ugly) to connect to the teens in ways we couldn’t have imagined!
Thank you Lora & thank you to all the Chicktime volunteers for pouring your love into children that need it so much. We are grateful for all of you!
Wow what a great turnout for our 1st official workshop!
We had a great time decorating masks and getting into the Halloween spirit @ Connections!
The kiddos, volunteers and staff enjoyed some Frito Pie and bonding time!
Just an all around good time!
Happy Halloween! Hope to see you next month!
