Worship - November 5, 2017 - Sermon :“Letting Go” Rev. Kim Rodrigue

What’s up? Don’t forget to check out the updated First Presbyterian Church website www.fpcno.org to catch up on breaking church news, events and links to the wider world of mission! Also, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!


One of my commitments in my weekly work schedule is to have some 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, November 6th , 5:30pm                      meet behind the church on S. Prieur St.
  • Tuesday, November 7th, 7 -9am                        Morning Call (City Park)
  • Wednesday, November 8th, 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 someone else. Just call 504-866-7409 or email me at kim@fpcno.org to set up a time.

Sunday School for children & youth begins next week! Our teachers are: Lynn Hyder and Christopher Roberts (youth); Tracy Rene’ Helms-Capasso, Billye Constance and Marjan Aslanberigi (elementary); Magen Dolce and Angela Horn (pre-school). Many thanks to them for their leadership!
