Why is that?
Because that is all they choose to see.
-->>They don't see us feeding the homeless at 6 am... or us giving shelter to the runaway who is fleeing abuse.
-->>They don't see us at midnight, taking roses to the strip clubs to tell the girls there that they are VALUABLE and worthy to be loved.
-->>They don't see our volunteers spending countless hours tutoring at-risk youth in the inner city, giving them the time and attention they desperately need, several times a week.
-->>They don't see our college kids and high schoolers using their summer vacation to go and feed starving orphans in Africa and Brazil and Honduras and India...
They don't see it because it doesn't fit into their tidy, politically-correct view of who we are.
But that doesn't change reality.
The "nut jobs" might get the most media attention, but we are the ones building a legacy... for those who are not yet here.
You see, there ARE Christians out there who really are trying to walk out their faith and be the "hands and feet" of Jesus to EVERYONE they meet.

At last check, there are more than 200 churches, worldwide, that are participating in SERVOLUTION!
That is simply phenomenal!
What is a "Servolution" you ask?
"Sharing God's love and changing lives through simple acts of kindness."
Our very own pastor, Dino Rizzo, wrote the book, SERVOLUTION which will be debuting very soon...
Here are just a FEW of the things we will be doing during Servolution Week (April 3-9):
- *FREE (no donations!) CAR WASHES
- *VISITING AREA NURSING HOMES
*CLEANING the BATTERED WOMEN'S SHELTER (and pampering the ladies, too!)
- *PASSING OUT FREE BOTTLED WATER TO PEOPLE SITTING IN RUSH-HOUR TRAFFIC
- *SERVING BREAKFAST TO HOMELESS VETERANS
*CLEANING/PAINTING/DOING YARDWORK FOR AREA WIDOWS
- *PASSING OUT CANDY TO PEOPLE SITTING AT THE DMV
*PICKING UP TRASH & MOWING LAWNS ("Adopt-a-Block")
- *FREE AUTO REPAIR & OIL CHANGES FOR SINGLE MOMS & WIDOWS
But, the really cool thing is, you don't have to be a member of Healing Place Church to help out! In fact, you don't even have to live in Louisiana!
"Servolution is about churches partnering together and reaching out to their communities through simple acts of kindness for the soul purpose of expressing the love of God to people in our community."YOUR very own church can sign up to get involved and be a part of one amazing week showing the world what it really means to be followers of Christ.
