Marche d'Hiver was a Success!

The major fundraiser for the La Liason parent organization, of the Lyceé Français was this past Saturday and it was a big success.  This was easily the largest event on the church's property in recent history.  The Lyceé Français is a public school that has 4 preschool classes located in our building, so we wish them great success.  

Christmas Season is here!

There are lots of great events coming to celebrate the birth of Chist.  At worship on December 14th will be the Greening of the Sanctuary along with one of our favorites -- Christmas Lessons and Carols.  It's a lot of fun for the whole family as we sing the classic Christmas carols in church.  The following night,we will meet at the church for bell caroling in the FPCNO neighborhood.  After we sing a few songs and bring the joy of Christ's birth to our friends and neighbors, we'll meet in the sanctuary for our annual Christmas party and open house.

Bourbon Jesus Ministry

Pastor Fred as Bourbon Jesus

The pictures are up!  This past September, Rev. Fred Powell, as well as other members, stood as a quiet, loving protectors between French Quarter visitors and the pharisees who trolled Bourbon Street screaming damnation during the Southern Decadence celebration. Pastor Fred took pictures with revelers and shared Christ's love.  Please visit the Bourbon Jesus web page to see all the pictures.
