Real Life Church To Host Community Expo At Savia In Newhall

In an attempt to continue bringing the community together, Real Life Church will host a free community expo at Savia, the church’s community partnership on Newhall Avenue, from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 3.

The expo will feature a brief ceremony at 1:30 p.m., with opening remarks by Mayor Bob Kellar.

Visitors can enjoy live music, free school supplies giveaways, and approximately 20 different artisan vendors from the community selling arts, crafts, jewelry and apparel.

The event also serves as the grand opening of Artisan Java & Juice, a non-profit store inside Savia. Artisan will be handing out free samples of its fresh cold-pressed juices throughout the afternoon. The store donates 100 percent of its profits to designated non-profit organizations in the Newhall community.

“Savia” is a Spanish word that is often translated as “energy, vitality or lifeblood.” Real Life Church created Savia: A Community Partnership to be a place that infuses these same attributes into the local community. The 23,600-square-foot community center opened in May, and was fully financed by the contributions made by individuals who attend Real Life Church.

Savia serves as the Newhall campus of Real Life Church, which includes weekly worship services in English on Sunday mornings at 8:30 and 10:00 a.m., and a Spanish service–Vida Real–on Sundays at 12 p.m.

The Vida Real ministry team, led by Pastor Mario Ortiz, will be on hand at the Community Expo to raise awareness for the Spanish-language services and children’s ministry for kids 0-12 years old.

“We’re excited to meet our neighbors in the Newhall community,” Ortiz said, “and to show God’s love in a practical way by helping parents get their kids off to school with free backpacks filled with school supplies.”

Savia is also home to three dynamic non-profit organizations that serve the needs of local families coping with the pain of drug addiction, domestic violence and other traumatic circumstances:

Single Mothers Outreach is a grassroots organization that helps families facing sudden housing instability, income loss, emotional trauma and economic and social discrimination.

The Domestic Violence Center of Santa Clarita Valley provides safety and support to victims of domestic violence, while working to break the cycle of abuse.

A Light of Hope is a support center for families in crisis that provides support for youth and young adults 14-26 years of age who are struggling with substance abuse and/or self-destructive behaviors.

“Savia is a space we created to foster hope and healing in the Santa Clarita Valley by bringing together the faith community of Real Life Church with terrific non-profit organizations that are doing life-changing work to help families in our community,” said Rusty George, lead pastor of Real Life Church. “With this free community event, we’re showcasing the different components of Savia and trying to raise awareness of the practical ways that we’re able to serve the Newhall community.”

Savia will also soon be home to Celebrate Recovery, a Biblical and balanced program that helps individuals struggling to overcome hurts, hang-ups and habits. Future plans for Savia include a wide range of programs designed to engage with the residents of the Newhall community.
