Exchange Your Marriage

Is your marriage in need of an exchange? God created marriage to be a beautiful relationship that shapes husbands and wives to look more like Him, but dishonesty, selfishness, pride, impatience, and a lack of ownership have taken hold in many marriages that are in need of an exchange. God has called spouses to make an exchange of these strongholds to make Christ the center and foundation of their marriage so that it can be the beautiful picture God created it to be. Listen to Sunday's message about exchanges you may need to make in your marriage.

After 18 months of praying and planning, The Exchange held it's first public worship gathering in the Kidz Rock building where 123 people joined together to worship Jesus and hear from His Word. The Great Exchange message series kicked off looking at Luke 9:23 and the three things Jesus said it takes to exchange your life. Join The Exchange each Sunday at 10:30am in the Kidz Rock building next to Logan's in Pearl.

Family Day Highlights

Saturday, August 4th The Exchange hosted its first ever Family Day. Around 500 people came out to Pearl City Park to enjoy inflatables, games, food, face painting, give-aways, and fun for the whole family all for free. It was an awesome opportunity to meet and connect with families in the Pearl area and tell them about what God is doing through The Exchange. Volunteers from The Exchange and around the area braved the heat to serve and make the day a huge success.
