“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27
Luke 10:27 is a community of Christian faith located in Denham Springs, LA. During the great flood of 2016, the Amite River swept through the church’s physical property at 536 Centerville St NE taking with it not just sheetrock and insulation but most of the church’s contents. The damage from sewerage and petroleum ridden water covered everything from sanctuary chairs to nursery toys, library books to youth games, worship team instruments to copy machines, and so much more.
Since an estimated 80 percent of homes in the area took on flood water, the people who consider themselves the Luke 10:27 family have personally suffered as well. But even though they’ve lost much in the way of material goods, they continue to live into their namesake. They are loving God in the midst of tragedy and loving their neighbor in their own time of need. They still gather for worship each Sunday thanks to the generosity of a local gym owner…but need your help. With your witness in their time of need, this community can gather for worship in their church home on Centerville again. Join us in praising God through the rebuilding of Luke 10:27!
