Back in 2007, Southland helped launch the Refuge Clinic. Since then, the clinic has provided more than $5 million of free healthcare and has helped change the lives of thousands of people just like Leila who tells her story in this video.
In September, the Lexington location for the Refuge Clinic will be moving into a larger facility on the 2nd floor of the Richmond Road Campus where they'll be able to reach even more people, offer more programs, and keep providing free healthcare to the underinsured. They've already raised over $200,000 to help cover the cost of the move, but still need to raise $250,000 more. Let's help them reach their goal so they can expand their reach and continue to impact the lives of thousands of more people over the next eight years!

If you've ever joined us for a weekend service, chances are you've heard us talk about the Dollar Club. It's where we ask we ask people to give an extra dollar each weekend, then we get to share the incredible stories of how everyone's dollars came together to impact people's lives in huge ways. With it being a little more than halfway through the year, this is a perfect time to press pause and look back at some of the ways you've been able to extend hope through the Dollar Club this year. It's incredible to think that, in just over six months this year, we've been able to:
And what's even more amazing is to think about the fact that these are just a glimpse—there are dozens of families and individuals who have seen the love of Jesus in real, practical ways through the Dollar Club this year.
If you haven't seen it yet or want to know more, check out the Dollar Club video to learn how God can take even the smallest gift and use it to impact peoples' lives in astounding ways. Keep giving that extra dollar each weekend this year and let's keep generously extending hope to our communities!
