RESTOCK THE CLOSET: The food pantry has been used quite a bit this summer. We are running low on small toiletries, diapers both adult and child sizes and Shelf stable food items. We would love some help restocking or with the $25 gas and Walmart gift cards we give out. Please see Louise if you have questions.

SCHOLARSHIP SINGERS: The Session has approved the funds to hire three university music students as Scholarship Singers. These students will augment the choir and bring new ideas to our music program while receiving training, mentorship, and experience in music ministry. We are exploring grants to help offset the costs, but we also welcome donations from anyone who wishes to support the development of new church professionals. If you’d like to assist financially with this program beyond your existing pledge, please give via your usual method and specify that it is for the Scholarship Singers.

FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITIES: On Sept. 13th enjoy lunch and an afternoon of Art at NOMA. We will meet at the church at 10:30 AM to carpool. We will get lunch at Outback steakhouse first and then head to NOMA. The Museum is free to Louisanna residents on Wednesdays so please make sure to bring your ID to show residency. 

Also join us Sept. 28th for our next Tablecloth Dinner at Saltgrass, 4860 Veterans Blvd, Metairie, LA 70006. Cocktails at 6:00 PM and dinner at 6:30pm you will be able to order off the menu and receive separate checks. 

PW NEWS: Games days are starting back up this month. Join us the 2nd and fourth thursday of each month in the Library for fun and fellowships. Grace Circle is also coming back this month on Tuesday the 19th. Grace Circle will meet every third Tuesday at 10:00 am. They will be using the study: Sacred Encounters: The Power and Presence of Jesus Christ in Luke-Acts By Olive Mahabir.

THANK YOU NOTE: I wish to thank everyone for all the love and support I have received since the death of Jim and my recent hand surgery. 

From all the offerings of food (everyone knows I love to eat), going to the grocery etc. 

Also Sandy made sure I had a birthday cake since Jim’s Funeral was on my birthday. It was so delicious. Sue made me a wonderful meal which included these great chocolate cookies. Thank you again. 

With love and Gratitude, Beverly Kennedy.

Books On Spiritual Practices: There is more to do with the start of the school year, sports activities, and even fellowship opportunities. The busyness of life can make it hard to make time to focus on our spiritual life. This month’s CE reading recommendations all center around engaging in spiritual practices to strengthen ourselves, our families and the community we have chosen to be with. Most books are made for families but that doesn’t have to be just you and your kids or even immediate family, it can also be friends or small groups. So grab a partner, your family or group and dive deeper into your faith and time with God. Getting It Together: Spiritual Practices for Faith, Family, and Work by Carol A. Wehrheim  As modern persons struggle to cope with the many commitments that consume our lives and the increasing–and seemingly insurmountable–demands on our time, Carol Wehrheim offers this much-needed work. In Getting It Together, she offers a direction toward relief, showing how a Christian foundation of faith can provide a sense of balance amidst the struggle. Each chapter begins with a selection from Scripture and concludes with a spiritual discipline. Including both a participant’s section and a leader’s guide, Getting It Together is ideal for group study.

STARTING THIS FALL: We have so many wonderful programs starting up on September 17th for all ages. At 9:15 am adults can join us in the library for a new Adult Sunday School series called Off the Deep End taught by Briana Mayfield, where you will dive deeper in the scripture each week. Youth of all ages are welcomed to join us upstairs in the youth area for a time of Fellowship and snacks also starting at 9:15, the kids will also have access to the switch and Elementary classroom. On the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month the Middle and High School youth will have Sunday School where we will discuss Spiritual Habits to have a deeper relationship with God. Children’s church will offer lessons for PK – 2nd grade and 3rd – 5th grade Students to study the Narrative Lectionary. Each group will be studying the same scripture that Pastor Aaron is preaching on, engaging with it in an age appropriate manner. My hope is that Children’s church teaches our kids that Church is for everyone, not just the grown ups. By offering them a lesson during church that is meant for them they learn that Church is for them.
