Ministry Opportunities

UNITED METHODIST MEN

The men meet the second Monday of the month at 6:30pm.  They work to serve our church and our community.  They sponsor an annual Chicken BBQ dinner to raise funds to send five youth to Camp Istrouma every summer.  They raise funds for missions to help with other local needs.  All men are welcome.  They cook breakfast for the church every other month before worship.  Once a year, they also sponsor a spiritual retreat.  Donald Hazel is the current President.

UNITED METHODIST WOMEN

The women meet the third Monday of the month at 6:30pm.  They work to serve our church and our community. They sponsor an annual spiritual retreat.  They sponsor the Lunch Bunch every third Wednesday of the month (except July).  This is a meal open to the community.  They put together Thanksgiving baskets and Christmas gift bags for the homebound members.  They also do other missions, and study spiritual and missional books.  All women are welcome to participate.  Donna Bowles is the current President.

DAVANT CORRECTIONAL CENTER MINISTRY

Every other month, on the third Sunday afternoon, we have a ministry team who goes to lead worship with the women inmates at the Davant Correctional Center of Plaquemines Parish.  We provide music, prayer, Scripture readings, a message, and dialog.  We use the motto of KAIROS prison ministry as our guide:  Listen, Listen, Love, Love.

PENNIES FROM HEAVEN

Every Sunday morning during the worship service, our children are invited to take a special offering for missions.  The funds given are distributed to the New Orleans Methodist Children’s Home, the McDonall Children’s Home and Family Services in Houma, and for GRACE CAMP.  All of these ministries support families in crisis including foster care, counseling, and ministry to children and youth who have an incarcerated parent.  The children love taking this special offering, and to date over $24,000. has been donated to these ministries.
