Guest Preachers in June

We are fortunate to have three different people who will be leading worship and preaching for us in the month of June as we await the arrival of our new minister, Rev. Nancy!

This coming Sunday, June 16th, we welcome Dr. Wayne Evans. He will be leading us in worship with his sermon entitled, “Time to Get Dressed.”

The scriptural background will be two passages, Isaiah 59: 15b – 20 and Ephesians 6: 13-18.  Join us as we find out when to get dressed and what we should wear!

Food, Fun, Family & Faith

United Women in Faith invites you and your family to join us on July 2nd at 6:00PM for an indoor picnic and Dessert Auction to be held in our church Social Hall.   Coming together to celebrate the founding of our nation, we will enjoy a hot dog and fixings picnic with homemade ice cream for dessert, enjoy patriotic music and other fun activities.  The evening will culminate in an auction of delectable treats prepared by our members.  “Putting Faith into Action”, funds raised will go toward supporting our 3 Louisiana Conference Mission Institutions and their work with children and youth.
