Hey NOLA Fam,

First, I’m praying that all of you are safe, and for protection over everyone in your family. Jesus Is still our Protector and our Healer, and we’re trusting Him to carry all of us through this time of crisis.

2020 has proven to be a challenge to all of us, but I do want to thank everyone in the NOLA Fam for leaning in as we’ve been joining us online, in-person, and for everyone who is actively serving with us to shine the Light and Love of Jesus to the New Orleans community and around the world. It seems like every week we hear something new that presents an additional challenge for us, and because of this we have to stay flexible and ready to respond to what’s happening in our world.

As of July 1, we’re only going to be hosting one in-person Worship Experience each week at 11a. This is to minimize the number of people on our Team who serve each Sunday, as much as possible, while maintaining an excellence Experience for everyone who attends. To help keep everyone safe, we’re adding satitizing stations in our Lobby, and we’ll also be providing face masks for anyone who would like to wear one. These are disposable, so feel free to grab a new one each week. We’re also providing wristbands to serve as additional indicators for the amount of social distancing you’d personally prefer. This gently lets people to keep their distance, or to give you an elbow bump rather than a good ol’ southern hug. While all this is in place, we are asking that no one wear gloves, as these can actually help spread the virus. We’re also fully sanitizing our entire facility each week in accordances to the guidelines set by the CDC and our local government.

But, all our precautions mean nothing if you’re already sick. So, we’re asking anyone who’s been sick, or in contact with anyone who is sick, to stay home and join our Online Campus on Facebook. We go LIVE at 11a CDT, with RECASTS  every Sunday at 2a and 6p as well. 

Over the past couple of months we’ve provided small groups who’ve connected via Zoom and/or Google Meet, and these will continue until August. Some of these Groups will also begin meeting in-person as well, but all our Groups will always have a way you can connect remotely if you’re more comfortable doing this. As always, if you need us, please reach out to us by texting CONNECT to 504-608-5266. If you have a prayer request, you can post it in the NOLA Fam Group, or by texting PRAYER to the same number. We’re in this together, and Jesus isn’t defeated!

Olga and I are praying for you, and we love each any every one of you. Thank you for being on this journey with us.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to GOD. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

— Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)


Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.

— Psalm 91:9–10
