and crochet them into mats that homeless people can carry with them to sleep on. They are lightweight, easily rinsed off, dry quickly, and roll up for easy transport.

Now all we need is more hands to flatten, cut, string, wind, and crochet – all ages are welcome to join us on Thursdays as we recycle plastic bags into something useful!

For more information, please call the church office at 225.275.7393.

This summer’s Vacation Bible School will be Jungle Safari, where kids explore the nature of God! Each night, July 7-11, 5:30-8:30 PM, they will find out about God as Creator, Provider, Protector, Savior and King!

 

After the nightly dinner at 5:30, the kids will sing, shout, praise, pray and be introduced to a Bible story and daily theme with Christa & Gerald Williams at Toucan Jam.

Pastor John will help them explore the Bible story in a variety of interactive ways at Zip Line Bible Time. Carol Bell and Jill Wild will be leading Lizards Leap, where kids will sing to a jungle beat and have fun creating musical crafts. Karen Pride will encourage the kids to serve with a mighty purpose at Missions site Slug-A-Bug S.W.A.M.P. And Craig Rowley will be serving tasty treats at Jaguar Junction.

There is still time to register kids, grandkids, neighbors and friends – just click here. Join us as we share the Good News of the nature of God with the kids – sign up to help on the posters in the Sanctuary vestibule!

Lenten Taizé Services

Filed under Uncategorized

Wednesdays, March 12, 19, 26, April 2 & 9     6:00-6:45 PM

The Taizé service is marked by its depth and by its simplicity. Time is suspended in a Taizé service. Silence is a central part of this service and is a gift to those leading busy, hectic lives. It provides an opportunity to commune with God through the heart and bring a measure of peace to one’s mind and spirit. The service consists of singing with periods of silent meditation, prayers of intercession, and readings from the Psalms and Gospels. The songs are not meant to be sung as hymns, but rather as a series of prayers. They are repeated many times over, transforming themselves into melodic chants, with the repetitiveness allowing the songs to become prayers of the heart.

Lord Jesus Christ, what one ministry are you calling us to embrace with our time, talent and treasure that will make disciples, bless neighbors, and provide opportunities to share the Gospel and our own spiritual journeys?

Three Session Series on Anger

angle couple medium Lee Soileaux will be leading a three-session series on Anger. It will include what the Bible says about anger and whether there is any correspondence between the Biblical perspective and that of secular psychology. You might be surprised!

You will learn many things about anger and how to deal with it during the three sessions, such as: What is anger? Is anger appropriate or inappropriate? Is anger innate or learned behavior? Is anger sinful? What are ways of dealing with anger? Do I have a problem with anger? Is there anything I can do about it? and much more.

Lee is working to set up a time that is most convenient for the largest number of interested people. Call the church office at 225-275-7393 for more information or to register your interest.
