REACHing Out, Outreach, Intentional Community.... These are words that have reverberated through the Weidner's lives for over 18 years. From the get go when they set out for ministry - going out into the communities of the world to find those in need of the Love of Christ has been the focus.
In 2005 during the weeks, months, and even years after Hurricane Katrina - outreach was taken to a new level in many lives and once again, the Weidners reached for the lost and hurting, to be the hand of Jesus extended in the NOLA area.
Here on the Northshore of NOLA we are REACHing again. This past Saturday, the people of REACH Community came together in the rural community of Bush, LA for Community Fest, an outreach of REACH Community. The lawns of neighbors were opened to neighbors, the laughter of children splashing down the waterslide and the sizzle and aroma of grilling sausages filled the air. The smiles on the faces of the people gathered were colored with reds and blues and every color in between from snoballs enjoyed. Hearts and voices lifted in songs of praise could be heard for miles around.
This summer, REACH Community and Weidner Ministries isn't cooling off... for such a time as this we have more ministry opportunities lined up. Please consider sowing a special seed into one or more of these outreach events.
