So what’s all the hype about RECHARGE???  We’re glad you asked…

 The board feels the spirit moving among us and has declared 2019 to be the YEAR of RECHARGE!!

                         RECHARGE God’s love within ourselves

                                    RECHARGE God’s love felt on the weekends

                                              RECHARGE God’s love in His community.

 YOU are called….you are needed….your strengths, your talents, your support, your love, your hands and feet to BOTH serve and to invite guests.  The ENTIRE COMMUNITY is NEEDED to RECHARGE!

Lafayette Great Banquet/Awakening, fueled by the power of the Holy Spirit called to RECHARGE the flame of HIS love!!
