Care-A-Van Ministries is pleased to announce that the City of Batavia has approved a permit to allow Care-A-Van to hold weekly Community Cookouts at Austin Park for the summer season of 2012.
For the past 10 years, Care-A-Van Ministries and their team of volunteeers have been going into the local neighborhoods to provide street church and cookouts. Paul Ohlson, Founder of Care-A-Van Ministries wanted to try something different this year. His vision is to bring the community together on a weekly basis for great food, music, sharing of the gospel and fellowship.
The weekly cookouts will be held on Thursday evenings at 6:00 PM beginning May 17th and will run through September 20th.
The cookouts will include hotdogs, hamburgs, salads, chips and a beverage. The Care-A-Van band will be providing music and local pastors will be giving a short sermon message.
If any individuals, churches, businesses, or local agencies would like to get involved in the community cookouts, please give Paul a call at 585-343-0328
