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.

What amazing things we have already seen God do to use our family through Operation Give! The toys have been delivered and we’re excited to spend some time wrapping those gifts with you! Please join us on Sunday evening, December 16th at 5:30 pm! We will have all 1300 of the gifts there to wrap and decorate for delivery. Bring your family and enjoy a time of fun and community as we give back to our city!

We had another great year of giving back to those in our community! Through the generosity of our family, we were able to give 50 families a Thanksgiving meals. We are in awe of the way our family pours out to see others served.

We are absolutely blown away by all God has done in our family in the last 5 years. We have seen countless exchanges of old life for new life in Christ. Through the generosity of our body we have been able to serve our city with love and meet other’s needs. We are overwhelmed and grateful for all God has done and all He will continue to do as we continue  sharing the truth of Jesus. As part of our celebration we were able to host a party for our family. A little rain changed the event from

As we closed out the summer our family hosted one more night of fun! Inflatables, wild games, and pudding creations were just part of the fun. During our bash we had the opportunity to offer a family prayer time where parents and their children were able to pray for one another as they head into a new school year.

This Sunday we celebrated 11 people who stepped into the water and shared their stories of freedom through Jesus. We believe in the exchange of forgetting for celebrating, and we did just that this Sunday. You can watch the video of the baptism celebrations on our stories page.
