Summer 2018 may still seem far away with school, sports, and clubs all in full swing along with a smattering of cold fronts as fall is settling in. However, this makes it the perfect time to start planning it out, and the first “must-add” to your summer 2018 calendar is our tri-annual trip to Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas. This is the biggest trip in our Middle School program and is a great developmental step towards experiencing cultural perspective taking while processing what life is like beyond our backyard.

It’s been a busy summer friends between our TUMC calendar, your personal and family calendars, camps, and events of all kinds.

Blueprint was birthed out of a heart for keeping people in their homes just outside of downtown San Antonio and educating youth on the importance of taking the time to listen to someone else's story. What comes from this is a beautiful relationship between the Blueprint staff, home-owners, and volunteers who help renovate homes and share the gospel.
