Advent Bible Study
Join us for a four part Bible Study during Advent. We will meet on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm at the home of Beth Lafargue beginning November 28th.
There is a sign up sheet in the Narthex, or you can contact Debi in the church office, and she will add you to the list.
We will study The Redemption of Scrooge by Matt Rawle. Which looks at Charles Dickens’s classic A Christmas Carol, through the lens of faith.
3rd Annual Pie Social
Tuesday, November 20th at 9:30 am Ciruti Hall. Please join us for our annual make a pie event for children and adults! The purpose of this event is to have our adults and children get to know each other better AND you get to have a pie ready for Thanksgiving. We will be trying a new pie recipe this year. You provide 2 cans (21 oz each) of Apple fruit filling, 2 rolls of pie dough, and rolling pin. We will provide pie plates (you can still bring your own if you want), cinnamon, and butter. We will be making beautiful cinnamon roll apple pies! Please register with Emily Maska at or 504/258-7030.  

2018 Christmas Play

Something a little different – we’re doing five performances this time, two in Ciruti Hall and three in SLU’s Wesley Student Center. We hope the out-of- our-own-box performances will attract some folks who are not aware of all the good stuff we do here at FUMC and maybe entice a few to take a closer look.

Here’s the schedule.
Friday, November 30th at FUMC Ciruti Hall
Saturday, December 1st at FUMC Ciruti Hall
Thursday, December 6th at SLU Wesley Center
Friday, December 7th at SLU Wesley Center
Saturday, December 8th at SLU Wesley Center

Food will be served at 7:00 pm and the play will start not long after. The home performances in Ciruti Gall will feature, as usual, a full dinner. The performance at SLU Wesley will only be dessert and coffee. As always, we need bakers and servers and signup sheets are ready and waiting. No surprise there, huh?

The preschool is collecting show boxes for Operation Christmas Child again this year, beginning on Thursday, November 1st.

Collection week will be Monday, November 12th through Friday, November 19th.

Information Pamphlets will be available in the Sunday Bulletin and the Narthex. 

 If you have any questions, contact Carrol Bass at 225/567-2411 or

Saturday, November 179:00 am to Noon – Drop Off Day at Ciruti Hall – bring your items!
