The Southside has been rocking and rolling my friends! For those of you who are new to Faith Center we have a ministry called the Southside of Heaven located at a second campus downtown La Grande.
Our mission has been to reach out to a large sub-culture here in La Grande who struggles with addiction. We have also seen people who don’t like church (yet) come and be a part of our community. I believe God has called us to be very specific in our mission and vision. As I have been praying I’ve asked God to use us to reach out to those who feel unloved, judged, struggling in addiction and who don’t believe in Him.
What we have seen is lives being changed. We have seen people accept Christ, get water baptized, freed from addiction and feel loved and accepted.
God has been doing what He does, changing lives. All of us involved at Southside are totally humbled to be a part of this ministry and that God would use us to fulfill His great commission.
We have an awesome group of leaders who serve with great compassion, energy and love.
Celebrate Recovery is every Thursday night at 7:00 pm. It is a Christ centered 12 step ministry focused on changing not only our addictive behaviors but changing the culture of our lives. Have you ever wondered why you do the things you do? Celebrate Recovery, through God’s grace, allows us to dig down in the depths of our souls and find out why we function the way we do.
Friday nights we meet at 7:30. We have dinner, a life story or teaching with discussion, live music and an awesome kids ministry downstairs, we have a dedicated group of leaders who teach the kids about God and pour every ounce of love upon them. It’s a time to be community. We sit and drink coffee, talk life and love one another.
Monday nights we have men and women’s bible study at 7:00. We just started up Breakfast Club, we meet every Friday morning from 8:30 – 10:30 drinking Latte’s and laughing. The last Saturday of each month we have movie night at 6:30.
If you are interested in checking out the Southside of Heaven come and be a part of this awesome community.
Finally I want to thank those of you who support The Southside financially and most important those who pray relentlessly for us. If you would like to support Southside, or want more information, come and talk with me.
All for the Glory of God!
