Laurie ReidMy field placement at Southlands Community Church has been such a rewarding experience for me.  The dynamics of the many cultural backgrounds represented at Southlands provides for an enriching worship experience.  It is amazing to see how God’s awesome power is transforming lives within the community.

I have been privileged to learn alongside Officers who are deeply committed to the congregation, church growth, and corps administration.  In the few short months that I have been a part of Southlands Community Church, I have been able to participate in and lead Bible studies, prayer meetings, Sunday school, the Christmas Kettle Campaign, and I’ve even had the opportunity to assist with the corps finances on a weekly basis.

Through my field placement, my calling has been confirmed over and over again.  I have a renewed vigor to serve God as He reminds me daily of the divine charge that He has placed on my life.

There is an awesome ministry happening at Southlands Community Church, and I am overjoyed that they have all welcomed me in to share with them in worship.  I eagerly anticipate the coming months at Southlands as we continue to learn and grow together.
