LSVA is focused on the strengthening the community of post-9/11 veterans in Houston, Texas. That starts with strengthening families. We are working on expanding our family programming for veteran families and encouraging our donors that provide us with free sporting event tickets for veterans to give us enough so veterans can take their families and create lasting memories.
We are beginning 2017 with a new Affinity Group within LSVA, an At Home Spouse group. LSVA works because all of our members have a shared military experience that makes it easier to talk openly about the good and bad things in our lives. Our military and veteran spouses need the same opportunity to gather and discuss what is going on in their lives with others who are living those experiences now, or have in the past. These are kid friendly events that will allow parents to get out of the house, let the kids burn off some energy with other kids, and be able to relax with other parents.
Please join Lone Star Veterans Association (LSVA) and CRU (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) for A Discussion on Faith and Service. In 2018 LSVA will continue to expand the veteran community by establishing affinity groups that serve as platforms to showcase veterans as who they really are. In this case we want to promote the impact that Christian faith has had on many of our members and how their military service has impacted their Christian faith.
We feel that while there are many quiet professionals in our community, we need to shine a light on the amazing things that our veterans have accomplished through and due to their faith, as well as how their faith has driven their careers and lives. We believe that by bringing in great community leaders to share their stories of faith and service we will not only recognize these amazing leaders, we will inspire others to be more vocal about what they do, as well as encourage us all to lead a more purpose driven life.
We hope that you can join us, veteran or civilian, for a great lunch that promises to inspire and educate. We also hope that if you enjoy the message and the fellowship you will want to return for future events and even volunteer to support this new program.
Our speakers for this event will be Mea Williams Navy veteran with Grace After Fire and T'Liza Kiel with Mental Health America.
