Earlier this year the Lord began to move in the hearts of one of our faithful couples at Vintage. Having heard the phrase “be the church” so often the wife asked the Lord what this would look like for her family and life specifically. The Lord impressed upon her heart the needs of homeless in New Orleans. The husband and wife discussed and felt the Lord leading them to feed the homeless weekly, particularity on Claiborne Ave. under the Interstate. The couple shared with their Community Group how the Lord was calling them to love the city. They began to make sack lunches each Saturday morning. They meet at our Metairie facility at 11am Saturday and carpool together to share food, hope, peace, and prayer with the homeless in our city. Their Facebook is Light of Hope Ministry.
Here’s Hunter sharing about this work in our city:
As winter approaches one of the simplest ways for our entire church family to come alongside this couple and Community Group is to help them provide materials that will help the homeless keep warm. Over the next 6 weekends, until December 29 we want to ask you to bring 3 items to Rock ‘n’ Bowl:
The Light of Hope Ministry will give these supplies away on Saturdays as they continue to serve our city.
This is loving the city, this is Gospel Multiplication, and this is BEing the Church.
