5th Sunday: Austin State Hospital

Every month with a 5th Sunday at Servant Church is an opportunity to “do” church a bit differently. In addition to preparing our monthly Community Meal, this month the Service Team has coordinated a special event at Austin State Hospital (ASH).

On Sunday the 29th, the Servant Church Community will be throwing a party at the Austin State Hospital. We’ll have music (an acoustic set by Good Field), food, games outside, and art with the patients of the APS West wing of the hospital. Please come celebrate life with us and help raise awareness about mental health issues in our community. Over 16 only, please, on account of state policy.

Our service team at Servant Church is focused on mental health issues this next month and will also be collecting clothes for the patients at ASH. If you are not able to attend, please consider donating clothes. When folks arrive and leave ASH, they often need clothing. Especially needed are XL and XXL items. PJs, socks, and shoes (of all adult varieties) are great items too.
