Covenant Spotlight Acadiana Resource Guide

Local resources

   Covenant Spotlight was created to be a unifying resource, focused on God’s Word and stories of those changed by His grace and mercy, interwoven with resources and stories of local ministries, churches, and businesses.

  So, why this special edition? To quote our team member, “Many are grieving the loss of a loved one or the pain of having a family member on drugs, alcohol or struggling with other addictive behaviors…trapped in prostitution or sex trafficking…don’t have a place to sleep or food to eat…no one to turn to. Acadiana has numerousavailable local outreaches. In order to utilize all of our resources in the body of Christ to the fullest, it would be good for us to know what all is currently in place…”

  We are thankful for those who contributed resource information, and for MoneySaver Tax Professionals and our other guide sponsors who helped bring this to you.

  Our prayer is you will take a copy to use for years to come, and give a copy to someone who needs a helping hand and a glimmer of hope today!
