ServeHere’s goal in doing a Ministry Spotlight each week is to educate our audience about the great ways God is moving through the ministries of Austin, Texas, and to show just who exactly our interns work with! This week, the ministry spotlight is on Side By Side Kids, which is a faith-based after school ministry for kids in East Austin. By encouraging, equipping, and empowering kids from kindergarten to fifth grade, Side By Side teaches these children to make wise decisions, excel in school, and grow in their faith with God.



The core values of Side By Side Kids is as follows:

ServeHere and Side By Side Kids intern, Emily Murray, is one who has the ability to genuinely care for and encourage anyone she comes in contact with. Working directly with Side By Side as an intern has allowed Emily to use her God-given abilities to bring the best God-give abilities out of East Austin children. This incredible ministry in Austin, Texas has transformed many lives in East Austin’s St. John community, and will continue to reach out to children this summer.

In fact, this summer, Side By Side Kids will be having summer kids club July 8th-12th! They are looking for volunteers of ALL ages to help this summer camp run smoothly. If you’re interested in helping out as a volunteer, sign up here: http://www.sidebysidekids.org/learn/summerkidsclub/
