Louisiana Floods

Stevendale, like many Louisiana churches, was devastatingly affected by the flood waters. Our education buildings and fellowship hall took about 3 feet of water, and the sanctuary took 2 feet.

Like many Louisiana churches, the damage to the meeting place of the church only reflects the damage done to the homes of church members. The majority of our church suffered significant destruction in their own homes.

At the moment, we are still assessing what has happened. We are all working on preventing further damage to our homes and to our church buildings by removing everything that took water, then cutting out walls and insulation. After that, comes rebuilding.

A long process lies ahead. We appreciate your prayers, and need them badly. As do our neighborhoods to the north and south which suffered significant flooding in 100% of the homes.

We need your help too, as do so many people and churches. If you and your church outside of Louisiana want to come to help and need to know how to get plugged into the Louisiana relief efforts call this number: 318-541-1356.

Our church office went under water, and was destroyed. You can reach me on my cell phone at 225-436-9366.

In Christ Alone,
Bro Stephen Young

Raging water cannot extinguish love, and rivers will never wash it away.

Adventures in Philippi V.B.S.

Join us for our Multi-Language Vacation Bible School

We have a unique VBS this year. Children will learn Acts chapter 16 verses 12-40 by heart and in their heart language, whether English, Portuguese, or Spanish. The theme of the VBS is the narrative of Paul in the city of Philippi.

Children will experience Philippi by donning costumes and entering into the marketplace where they will make real mosaic stepping stones, paint pottery crafts, create foil prints in the metal shop, and more. Daily dramas will re-tell the scripture narratives as children interact with the biblical characters.

Join us for this great experience. For kids ages 4 to 13.

July 25 –29 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Dailyvbs collage
