Finish the Kitchen Fundraiser

Help First Presbyterian finish our kitchen renovation!

We have set up a Go Fund Me campaign to finish our kitchen renovation project.  As they say, "The kitchen is the heart of the home," and at First Presbyterian we already have a lot of heart.  What we don't have is a proper commercial kitchen.

Getting Ready for Easter

We have several observances planned for Holy Week and celebtrations planned for Easter Sunday.  Please join us!  All are welcome.  

Maundy Thursday 6:00 pm Thursday, April 2nd. Start in the Fellowship Hall with a "Stations of Deliverance" Passover experience as you make a personal, quiet, journey with Jesus at your own pace to 6 different stations that tell the story of Exodus and Jesus last Supper with his disciples (6pm to 6.45 pm). Then we will gather for a short communion service in the sanctuary at 6.45.

Love IS LOVE

Tuesday the PCUSA officially became the largest Christian denomination in the US to affirm that Love IS LOVE...and recognize that same sex marriages are created and blessed by God!  We are excited to celebrate with members Kelly and Enjoli Mallary, who were married in New York State last April.  What a wonderful blessing for their first anniverary!

Planned Parenthood Rally

Recently First Presbyterian opened our doors to a impromptu Planned Parenthood rally that was enthusiastically attended by more than 200 supporters, including Councilwomen Latoya Cantrell and Susan Guidry, both of whom are passionately and consistently concerned about the state of health care in our city. We are looking forward to further events and lobbying our government in Baton Rouge for more funding for mental and physical health services in Louisiana.

Fellowship Abounds this Mardi Gras Season

It's been a fun Mardi Gras so far for the members and friends of First Pres, with lots of great fellowship taking place.   For many years members have gathered along the St. Charles Ave. route to watch the parades together in front of a member's home.  This past Sunday our worshipers were treated to a sermon by guest pastor Rev. Bob Malsbury while Pastor Fred got ready for his annual ride in King Arthur.  After worship the group made their way to the route to spend a lovely afternoon together.
