PASTOR KIM AROUND TOWN

As fun as the Christmas and Mardi Gras seasons were, it is good to be back to ordinary time. This week I resume my set hours at a place outside the church building. Sometimes people are more comfortable talking with a pastor outside of the walls of a church. It may be a time for you to drop by or to bring a friend to visit. You don't have to have a particular need to stop by, but it is fine if you do.  It’s a time for conversation on anything from personal matters to church concerns to world peace – or anything else.

Pastor Kim’s walk, coffee & beer hours:

  • Monday, February 19th , 5:30pm                       meet behind the church on S. Prieur St.
  • Wednesday, February 21th, 5-7pm           Oak (8118 Oak Street)

I will be at the church on Wednesday afternoons from 2-4 for anyone who wants to drop by. I'm glad to meet with you at another time, either at the church or somewhere else. Just call 504-866-7409 or email me at kim@fpcno.org to set up a time.

Pastor Kim says, "A couple of years ago was my first experience with "drive by" ashes. I was skeptical. It turned out to be my most meaningful Ash Wednesday ever.  Drive or walk by next Wednesday and receive ashes, someone who will ask you what you most want/need prayers for, and a prayer especially for you."
