The vision behind Give Life Day was to exchange selfishness for serving. We wanted to live for a purpose Bigger Than Us and serve our city in a way greater than we ever had before on one day by mobilizing over 100 people for multiple projects around our city!
This summer we were excited to take a team from our family to help serve on the Mississippi Gulf Coast as we connect with Partnership Gulf Coast. The team served in different communities along the Gulf Coast helping host backyard Bible clubs, sports camps, and other opportunities to reach kids and families with the hope of Jesus.
Man Up Weekend was a special event for all guys 6th grade and above. The weekend was a special time filled with biblical teaching for men, good food, door prizes, competition, and hangout time with other men.
Kamp KidLIFE 2018 was a fun-filled week for 1st-5th graders learning God can do BIG things through us! Check out a few photos and a recap video from the week below!
Sunday, May 20, 2018 we celebrated with 16 students and adults who took their next step of faith through baptism declaring Jesus as Lord and leader over their life. Here are some pics from the day of celebration! Click here to watch the stories of life change from the day.
Sunday, May 13 we not only celebrated moms for Mother’s Day, but we also celebrated families through Family Dedication. Eight different families stood before our church family in agreement to raise their little ones under the authority of God’s Word, in unison with the church, and with the desire for them to become followers of Jesus. It was a special time of the celebration of God’s gift of life and family!
Easter Weekend 2018 was an incredible time of serving our community through the Mayor’s Easter Egg Hunt, and then seeing almost 900 people join us for our 4 special Easter Gatherings. We celebrated through the theme of My Victory, realizing the truth that Jesus’ victory became our victory through the cross and empty tomb. We praise God for the many people who found victory in Christ because of what God did through Easter Weekend 2018!
What an awesome morning as we celebrated four people who publicly declared Jesus as the Lord of their life. From a father and husband to a 3rd-grade student there was one common thing that linked them all- Jesus. Jesus makes a way to heal us from our brokenness. Jesus heals us in our brokenness and uses us to tell His story. You can find the video on our stories page.
Operation Give 2017 was such an exciting time! In years past we have sponsored Christmas gifts for 2 classrooms at Pearl Lower Elementary. This year, God increased the reach of our family by allowing us to give 2 gifts to all 700 Kindergarten and 1st Grade students at Pearl Lower Elementary. We hosted a packing party to prepare the gift for delivery and then delivered them to every child at PLE. We are so grateful for the generosity of our Exchange family, and the opportunity to love the people in our city.
What a great night at our annual Christmas in the Park! We had a fun-filled night with inflatables, popcorn, movies, carnival games, and so much more! Through the help of our church family, we were able to serve over 1,500 people in our city.
