Pearl Day

Saturday, May 19th The Exchange took part in the Pearl Day weekend festivities. Thousands of people flooded Pearl City Park for food, games, rides, concerts, shopping, and fun for the whole family. The Exchange hosted a self-tie dye and face painting booth. People of all ages stopped by to tie dye an Exchange t-shirt in their favorite colors. The team took shifts throughout the long hot day to help people tie-dye shirts, paint faces, and pass out Exchange balloons. It was an incredible opportunity for us to support the city, get to know tons of new people, and pass out information about The Exchange!

Below are some pictures from Pearl Day.

Teacher Appreciation Breakfasts Recap

Part of the vision of The Exchange is to make an impact in the city of Pearl by loving and serving the schools. Last week was state testing week for Pearl schools as well as National Teacher Appreciation Week. We had the opportunity to show some love to the teachers, administration, and faculty at Pearl Lower Elementary and Pearl Upper Elementary. The menu included a crowd favorite - Chick Fila chicken biscuits, fruit, and orange juice all packed in an Exchange lunch bag given to the teachers as a gift. We all had to get up a little earlier than usual, which made us appreciate these teachers and all they do even more! We had a great time meeting the faculty and staff at both schools, and look forward to the next opportunity to serve our schools.

Below are some pictures from the teacher appreciation breakfasts.

How You Can Pray for The Exchange

God has done some incredible things over the past year of this journey as a team and even over the past few weeks, but we believe that we should never only be satisfied with where we are but continually expecting and desiring to see God do more. We have learned that part of seeing God move is asking Him. In Jeremiah 33:3 God tells Jeremiah, "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." What incredible promises that God would not only hear Jeremiah but that He would tell him things beyond what he understands or knows. We believe the same thing is true for us as Christ followers and as a brand new church. If we will call on the name of Jesus, we fully believe that He will answer us in ways beyond our understanding.

Please join us in praying for God to do an incredible work through The Exchange by not only birthing a new church but by birthing a movement to transform a city for the name of Jesus! Below are a few specific things you can pray for:

  • People to exchange their old life for new life in Christ
  • The addition of more passionate and devoted leaders on The Exchange team
  • Financial partners to help fund the mission
  • Favorable influence and connections in the city
