From the Longview News Journal;


da6b7ef4724dde9115452e245a386a6a continuing effort to unify South Longview neighborhoods will continue next weekend, when organizers have set a town hall gathering and festival with entertainment and food.

Nona Snoddy, District 2 councilwoman, said the meeting at the Boys & Girls Club of Gregg County is an effort to unify all the neighborhoods, because all are facing similar challenges and have the same opportunities.

Snoddy represents Southwest Longview.

“I hope that we can mostly change the mindset of our people, where we can just show love — not just in our words, but in our actions,” she said.

Organizers from the Beautiful South Side Longview effort said they hope to attract people from across the city with what they’re describing as a family-friendly atmosphere that includes live entertainment, free food, skydivers, a 3-on-3 basketball tournament and door prizes.

Beautiful South Side Longview is an initiative between pastors in the city, the city of Longview and area businesses to bring about change in the area. In March, dozens of people walked through neighborhoods as part of a Good Friday “cross walk,” in which they ministered to neighbors through prayer, gospel singing and encouragement.

Snoddy and District 3 Councilwoman Kasha Williams — who represents Southeast Longview — said the meeting will have a strong faith-based element.

“With God, all things are possible, so we’re hoping that this is going to be possible, and these things will come to fruition,” Snoddy said.

Added Williams: “South Longview is the ‘original Longview’ and a true place of beauty. Standing together in solidarity, we say ‘no’ to the violence, ‘no’ to the negativity and ‘yes’ to continuing to build up our community by working with our constituents, encouraging positive youth programs and building up our neighborhoods, one brick at a time, one heart at a time.”

Dale Perkins, a facilitator with Perkins Partnership Ministries, said the movement is built on a Bible verse in Matthew 5, which mentions a city set on a hill.

When Beautiful South Side Longview founders first met late last year as the city was seeing increasing violent crime, organizers wanted to emphasize the seven points of light from the Bible.

First, they had a “Jesus Burger” event in the area where major crimes were happening, he said.

Second, they looked for Christian-themed activities for teenagers during the summer and after school when they have idle time. After the third “light” of working to find ways for city bus routes to get more South Longview residents access to jobs on the north side, the fourth light focused on working with the police chief for increased officer patrols and the chief becoming more visible to young people, he said.

No. 5 was dividing council districts 2 and 3 into 50 blocks, and putting a man of peace in each of those blocks. The man of peace has no police authority but helps people with needs such as broken windows or unmowed lawns.

Saturday’s town hall meeting is the sixth endeavor, and the seventh will be an effort to build another Boys & Girls Club in South Longview, Perkins said.

“We want Beautiful South Side Longview to become the envy of the entire city,” he said. “Some people laugh at that and say that’s impossible, but it’s not impossible. He’s going to do it, God willing.”

There are so many areas of ministry that God is leading in it’s incredible. We have the opportunity daily to minister on an individual basis, and weekly on a larger scale. We study how our Savior ministered, one on one, and are both encouraged and challenged by His example. We serve a Great God that not only owns the cattle on a thousand hills, but also the hills upon which the cattle are standing. There is an area of ministry at PPM in which you can be involved. Pray about it, and then jump in. He has led some to minister with Classic Praise, some to help at the mission, others to provide for the poor and helpless, some to minister to the sick, and others to help us preach the gospel and fulfill the Great Commission through the Tall Pines Festivals or our prison ministry. Yet He has placed in some of your hands the gift of finances that can be used in all of these areas. Everything that you donate to PPM is 100% tax deductible, and it’s now easier than ever to partner with us through PayPal. Start reaching out with Christ’s love and see the doors start opening and lives being changed. There are people who need His touch all around you. Thank you for partnering with us as we step forward, in faith, with new ministry opportunities and as we continue very crucial ones.

Jesus said, “I am the bread of life.  He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.  But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.  All that the Father gives me will come to me and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.  For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.  And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.  For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”
