God has more than blessed the fortunate of our societies. It is, therefore, our mission to utilize our gifts and talents to expand and exhibit God’s Love and Hope to the unwashed, the uneducated, the unclothed, and the unloved both in our own backyard and throughout the world. The Foundry House Ministries Corporation has been established solely as a non-profit, faith-based, charitable, beneficial, patriotic, civic and educational association of its members with an overall objective which shall allow God’s love and hope maximum latitude in serving the care, needs, education and spiritual well-being of all peoples within our community and around the world.
At The Foundry House, we realize there is a desperate need for a Christian outlet in the Payne Springs, Texas sub-division of Cherokee Shores. Understanding this, Kids Klubhouse is proud to offer a unique product of free tutoring, faith-based teaching, and recreational activities to elementary neighborhood children.
Now in our seventh school year, we can currently have 12 to 16 children attending KidsKlubhouse on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. We employ trained, High School Interns during these times and have two adult volunteer supervisors. The teenagers design and implement programs and projects which mentor and build a trusting, ongoing relationships with these children ... while instilling within them achievable goals, leadership skills, educational understanding and a personal commitment to family and faith.
In addition to their faith-based learning, we also cook a complete, nutritious dinner each KidsKlubhouse night ... as we have determined that these children need supplementary nutrition ... more than what they could receive from just an "after-school snack".

The Foundry House is also “host” to a program called CelebrationRecovery every Tuesday night from 7 to 9pm. This is a program designed to help those struggling with hurts, hang-ups, and habits by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through their recovery process. Celebrate Recovery is open to all adults who would like to heal, resolve and change … through a “step” program based strictly around God’s grace and mercy. Over 700,000 people have gone through the Celebrate Recovery program in more than 17,000 churches worldwide. It begins by developing a relationship with Jesus Christ ... and The Foundry House may just be the place to begin. We provide prayers, encouragement and tangible support which will lead participants to make choices that will, with God's help, raise them out of harmful behaviors and back into healthy relationships … becoming a positive member of their family, community and occupation. Once they admit that they are powerless over their addictions and compulsive behaviors … and that their life has truly become unmanageable … they are able to ask God to fully reveal sins and also take them away as He has promised to do … guiding them from that moment onward. There is always a place for everyone here! Give your struggles to the Lord and begin to Celebrate Recovery!
Hopefully, early next year we will finally be initiating our COFFEE ‘n’ CHRIST home-church service on Sunday evenings … a very informal, but also a scripturally-orientated gathering for our Cherokee Shores neighbors who might not feel comfortable with visiting a traditional church building and service.
