Help Deer Creek

Deer Creek Needs… 

Courtney Taylor, activities director at Deer Creek, is requesting the following items: 

 CD players or boom boxes for residents to listen to their music on CDs. If you have one to donate, you may bring it to the church office or take it to Deer Creek. 

 A computer. Deer Creek currently has no desktop for residents to use. If you have an old one you are not using, please consider donating. If unable to transport, we can arrange a pick up from your house or office. 

 Do you like to shop? Several residents would like someone to take them shopping once a month to HEB, Target, Wal-Mart, etc. They would, of course, have their own money and you would just need to give them transportation. 

If this is something that interests you, please contact Courtney at CETaylor1@savasc.com or 512-847-5540, ext. 225. 

Deer Creek Pet Project

Do you have a pet who likes people? Deer Creek has many residents who love pets, so let’s bring them together on Wednesday, September 4, 6:00-7:00 p.m. We’ll meet in the living room at Deer Creek and invite residents to get to know us and our pets. The only requirements are that the pets be vaccinated and be on leashes or in cages. This will be the first in a series of ministries the Discipleship and Outreach committees have planned to serve the needs of Deer Creek residents and honor the elderly. 

Visitor’s Sunday!

September 8 will be a special Sunday to welcome visitors to our worship service. If you have friends, neighbors or coworkers who may be looking for a church home, please invite them to come – or better yet, offer to pick them up. Remind them that we have fellowship after worship so that we as a congregation can meet and greet them. 

Presbyterian Women
