A big thank you to our guest pastor this morning, the Rev. Claire Brooks, who is retired from Chinese Presbyterian Church in Kenner. She is the chairperson of the Board of Directors of Evergreen Life Services, which serves over 1,300 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities offering a wide range of community-based services designed to not only meet basic needs, but also teach life skills and help each individual reach his or her own personal potential.

We bid farewell to Pastor Fred Powell, III, today and thank him for his ministry as the 16th Pastor of FPCNO. His sermon today was a moving acount of Elijah and the 450, trusting in God, and our faith that God is leading us in the right direction.

We enjoyed a reception after worship with cake and refreshments. We wish Fred well as he moves on to his next calling.

A very special off-site wedding performed by Pastor Fred

We were honored to take part in the first-ever wedding to take place in the newly opened University Medical Center of New Orleans on Friday, April 22, 2016. Yolanda Welsh and Michael Cheeks had been looking forward to their wedding, planned for November 2016, since Michael proposed last August. Their plans changed when Yolanda was admitted to UMC last week and they learned that her stage 4 kidney disease was now at stage 5. Michael and Yolanda decided to move up their wedding and contacted the hospital’s attorney and staff for guidance on notarizing their marriage paperwork.
