If you're planning to worship in person this Sunday, October 3rd, 2021, with the Simple Church, we'll be at Festival Plaza in downtown Shreveport for the Red River Revel Arts Festival! Pastor Justin Haigler will lead services at 10 am followed by the amazing Simple Church band playing at 11 am.

As a 'partner' of the Simple Church, I'd like to invite you personally to fellowship and worship with us Sunday. If you've been looking for a church home, this is a great time to kick the tires and see what Simple Church is all about. Just in case you were wondering, Simple Church is non-denominational and the motto we embrace is 'Love God, Love People, Solve Problems.' Simple Church prides itself on inclusivity. No judgment, just come as you are!

If you'd like to get a preview of what to expect, here's brother Justin with a personal invitation to join us Sunday, followed by a video of the crazy talented Simple Church band!

I sure hope to see you Sunday! Here's more about all 9 incredible days of Revel 45!

Did you know that the Red River Revel Arts Festival was created in 1976 as a gift from the Junior League of Shreveport? In fact, Festival Plaza in downtown Shreveport was created for the Revel! For anyone who has taken a field trip to the Revel, you know what a gift to our community this event truly is. Research shows that exposure to the arts fuels positive skills and capacities that are valued by leaders and employers, such as persistence, collaboration, creative thinking, problem-solving, and motivation. Plus, art, no matter the medium, makes our world a more beautiful place. In addition to bringing art to the Ark-La-Tex, the Revel also celebrates our unique regional culture.

Whether it's visual, performance, or musical art, the Revel has it and this year, we think you're going to love some of our new attractions. The new attraction I'm most excited about personally is the step show competition Friday, October 8th followed by Coolio and Rob Base on the main stage at 9 pm!
