After worship today we had a champagne toast to bid farewell to our one of our most active members,Claire Trimble. She has given so much of herself to New Orleans and to our congregation since she moved here in 2006.

One Church, One Book: FPC Version

As a group, we are reading America's Original Sin by Jim Wallis and we are off to a great start. There's still time to join a group- this week's discussion will focus on chapters 2 and 3.

We are seeing a high level of participation with insightful comments in the various small group discussions that are being led by members throughout the week. As a church, we're not afraid to confront the important, but sometimes volatile, issue of racism and racial justice head on.

The small groups will last for about 6 weeks and there are four groups you can join.

Sacrament Sunday

The Reformed tradition understands Baptism  and the Lord’s Supper to be Sacraments, instituted by God and commended by Christ. Sacraments are signs of the real presence and power of Christ in the Church, symbols of God’s action. Through the Sacraments, God seals believers in redemption, renews their identity as the people of God, and marks them for service.

Happy Kings Day!

Happy Kings Day! Today is Epiphany and we will celebrate during worship this Sunday at 11am by heralding the arrival of the 3 kings with Communion, Epiphany stars, bells, and music, followed by fellowship with coffee and king cake! 

As it is also the last day of Christmas, we will be undecorating the sanctuary and placing our magnificent tree to the curb to boost coastal restoration efforts.

Special Christmas Carol Service NEW NEARS DAY

We'll ring in the New Year with a nontraditional service centered on singing many of the wonderful Christmas hymns that we've been waiting all Advent to get to!

We're back at our normal start time of 11:00am. 

Hope to see you there!
