So many times, the church is known for what it is against; it's time for the church to be known for what it is FOR. And we want to be known for being a church that is known for being for our community, the Northshore.
Don't forget, we are partnering with our new friends at APEX Youth Center in New Orleans. Remember to bring your offering next week. Soon we will be presenting our first donation to them and find out more about how we will be working with them in the future. Until then, be in prayer for the work they do with the youth in New Orleans.
We show that we are FOR outsiders when we are willing to meet them on their “turf." We show that we are FOR outsiders when we collaborate with them on things that matter to us both. We show that we are FOR outsiders when we include them in our group. Who is an outsider in your life? How can you show them you are FOR them over the next week?

FAST LANE Wednesday | 7-8PM | Highway Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it! Life moves pretty fast as a junior and senior.

On Wednesday nights, we'll talk about how to live life in the fast lane as a follower of Jesus in High School and beyond.
DEVOS Thursday | 6:30 AM Cafe Du Monde | Donut King (Hwy 59) Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day. Why then would we not want to fill up on the Word as well?
