There are many ways we are called to give. As a United Methodist congregation, we pledge to give of our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. If you have any questions about what this means we invite you to contact Juan Huertas, Lead Pastor at or the church office @ 318.865.2070.

God is calling us to be a welcoming, loving, and serving community. Our financial gifts allow us to answer that call in a bold way. Let us take a step of faith and answer the call together! If you have any questions please feel free to contact our Director of Operations, Brian Shoup, at or Pastor Juan, at
