'Roll-Your-Own' Sushi Nite - WEST

'Roll-Your-Own' Sushi Nite - WEST

As part of our Church-as-Tribe Weekend, no worship meeting this weekend but we're still meeting for 'church'! This is a special time to grow in faith & community.

Join the West & 4 Points Tribes for a fun dinner event best described as “craft-project-meets-dinner-party”! Absolutely no skill is required. You’ll receive professional coaching as you roll.

Over the last 2 years, Mission Hills has befriended a very special group of Burmese immigrants. All fled due to conflict and persecution. Now, calling Austin home, many are employed in the service industry at your favorite restaurants. This is our chance to love our Austin neighbors and have them share a skill, making sushi, with us.

Bring a favorite Japanese beer, wine or sake to share.

Find a ‘sitter and meet up with new and familiar faces. RSVP with Shannon Wise.

Mission Hills’ Tribes exist to build community and express faith in both fun and tangible ways together. Minimally, we gather the first weekend of each month (in lieu of worship) as a “Laboratory” weekend to practice Rhythms of community, hospitality, compassion, &/or generosity.

On the weekend before a new school year, there’s an opportunity to come together as a family, friends, and neighbors. It's a short & simple one-hour event with a little fun in the front yard, a short time of prayer & blessing, and frozen treat to cap it off!

Our plan again is to host several of these neighborhood events throughout Austin. Find a time that works on the weekend of Aug.19 & 20 that works best for Tribe mates, friends and neighbors.

* Bringing actual school backpacks is not necessary.

Log Country offers 1-7 bedroom properties. Many of our homes have private hot tubs and/or pools. Most pools can be heated during the off-season by request only for an additional cost.

Part of the beauty of Log Country Cove is the natural surroundings . Our Sarayu Trail winds through our 170 acres which is decorated by Mother Nature during each season.  The country settings allow for conveniences such as internet, but with limitations.  Some homes provide internet access, but service cannot be guaranteed.  Some of our homes cannot get service at all because of their location. For your convenience internet is available in the office and in the immediate area surrounding it.
