February 5:15 Serve Day Recap

This past Saturday The Exchange took part in our second 5:15 serve day where we aim to live out the second verse from our foundational passage - 2 Corinthians 5:15 "He died for all that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again." This month we partnered with a number of churches in the Jackson metro area to take part in SHINE 2012. A day where thousands of people are mobilized to serve the metro area. The Exchange team served at the Crisis Pregnancy Center in Pearl and at Pearl Lower Elementary. At the Crisis Pregnancy Center the team did some outside cleanup and also helped inside sorting through clothes and donations. At Pearl Lower Elementary the team worked to plant a brand new flower bed at the school's entrance.

Below are some pictures from our 5:15 event:

Highlights from the February Interest Meeting

Sunday night was our 2nd public interest meeting where we personally invited anyone to come and hear more about what God is doing through this new church in Pearl. We were so excited to see new people take part in the meeting at the Pearl Community Room! At the meeting we laid out why it makes sense to plant a new church, why we believe God is calling us to plant in Pearl, and why we are called The Exchange. We also spent time looking at the foundational passage for The Exchange - 
2 Corinthians 5:14-21. This month we looked at verse 15 that says, "And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again." We discussed how although the idea of no longer living for ourselves is contrary to our nature, our world, and sometimes even our view of church, ultimately this idea is right in line with the Word and the way Jesus lived His life.

God is doing some amazing things as He continues to build a team of individuals to love and serve this city with His message of grace and love. Mark your calendars to be a part of the next interest meeting Sunday, March 18th at 6pm at the Community Room in Pearl.
