“Taking It to The Streets”
A Social Ministry Fair and Concert

What’s so important about gathering folks together for fellowship through education and music?

Michael McDonald, a songwriter from the 1970’s wrote “Taking it To the Streets”
In it, he expressed the frustration of those who had been long ignored, misused
and forgotten; that those on the outside did not realize the hell that had been
created, and therefore he was taking this to the streets.

When people gather for a cause, a purpose, music is more than likely involved.
Education doesn’t have to be in a classroom. Educating can be through connecting
people who are concerned about the same causes or fighting the same fight, so
that we collectively as people of faith can really raise the roof on what is
affecting our neighbors and others in our neighborhoods.

So come out on Sunday, August 3 from 1-4 pm to learn, to be inspired, to fellowship with others on the issues affecting those we serve! Light refreshments are needed; please see our Vicar this Sunday after service for a sign-up sheet, or e-mail her at vicar@felcaustin.org

Thanks to Steve Jung sharing his witness about our ministry with John Stepan,
owner of Cabo Bob’s Burritos, during the month of July Cabo Bob’s is giving
anyone who says they are from First English Lutheran Church 50% of the money
from sales toward the cost of replacing the kitchen oven at First English!
