We believe God has a plan to restore St. Louis and we're invited to be a part of that plan. In lieu of gathering for normal weekend services on September 7 & 8 we'll be closing our buildings and taking church outside our walls as we serve The Lou. Between September 3 and 8, The Crossing will provide opportunities for all ages with a variety of passions and skills to be utilized.

As we look at the St. Louis area, may we be reminded that God is for us and we are #forthelou. To hear our heart behind this initiative, watch the weekend message. Use our Family Guide to make the most of your experience serving together.
