We all come from different backgrounds.
Some of us attend Northshore High,
others attend Slidell, Pearl River, or Salmen High
Schools.  Some of us come from families with lots of money and others of us have to work hard to make ends meet.  NONE of that matters in this place.  The ground is level here for everyone! 
Some of us are sports heroes, and others of us are computer nerds.  It doesn’t matter if you’re a prep, geek, jock, or nothing.  We’re just GLAD to have you with us! 
We are not as much a youth group as we
are a YOUTH FAMILY.  Whether this is your first time here or your millionth, we’re REALLY GLAD to have you join us!
