Being part of a church family means more than just worshiping together on Sunday mornings. It means getting to know one another, supporting and encouraging one another, rejoicing and weeping with one another as we go through life together. To promote church fellowship and the building of strong relationships within the church body, we hold a variety of events each year, including the following:
Annual Pie Day (Pi Day) Fellowship
Each year, we celebrate March 14 (Pi Day) with a pie fellowship in the Fellowship Hall.
Annual Church Picnic
We hold an annual picnic each spring in Fontainebleau State Park.
Annual Family Crawfish Boil
Each year in the late spring/early summer, we hold a family crawfish boil on the church campus.
Annual Hymn Sing/Ice Cream Social
Each summer, we gather in the sanctuary on a Sunday evening to sing our favorite traditional hymns, followed by an ice cream social in the Fellowship Hall.
Thanksgiving Service and Dinner
On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, a special Thanksgiving worship service is held, during which members of the congregation are encouraged to thank God for blessings received over the past year. After the worship service, we share a Thanksgiving potluck dinner.
Each year, we celebrate the Christmas season with several special events, including:
- A ladies’ tea and cookie exchange in early December;
- A special Christmas worship service in mid-December, including music from the adult choir, followed by our annual Christmas potluck brunch;
- “Cookies and Carols,” held on a Sunday evening in December, at which we sing favorite Christmas carols, followed by a time of fellowship and Christmas cookies; and
- A worship service on Christmas Eve.
Annual Business Meeting
Our annual business meeting is held each year at the end of January. During the meeting, we provide reports on the previous year’s ministry activities, discuss plans for the upcoming year, vote on new church officers, and approve the budget. The annual business meeting is followed by a potluck dinner.
