YOUTH RE-FUEL - 6th-12th GRADE

7:00 - 8:00PM, Youth Lounge

Let's be honest - we could all use a midweek re-fueling. But it's particularly important for your junior high or high schooler to have a safe place to go and leave the stress of school, friends, and activities behind for a little while. Our Re-Fuel Wednesday Bible Study provides this safe haven and allows students to focus their energy on digging deeper into their faith.


Contact Colby for more information at 318-357-8296 or Colby@fumcnla.org.


YOUNG ADULTS

6:00 - 7:00PM, Room 202

Join the young adults and make new friends, discuss big questions, and grow closer in love with God.


Our September study will be on the symbols of the church and the October study will be on Saints.

CHOIR

5:45PM, Room 108

Calling all members of the congregation! We would love to have you join us in the Chancel Choir!  Before you launch into all the reasons you can’t do it, please consider the following information:


1) You don’t have to have a great voice.  Choir is truly one of the instances in which the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.  It is not necessary for every member to have a soloistic voice.  The more people we have in the group the better we will sound.  

2) You don’t have to be able to read music.  We have strong leaders in each section.  You can add your leadership to that, or just follow the others in the section.  We can teach you your part during rehearsals.  I can even make you a recording of your part to practice with if you’d like.

3) It doesn’t have to be a huge time commitment.  It is not necessary to be able to attend every rehearsal and every service.  We will be happy to have you whenever you can make it.


Please share your time and talents by singing in the Chancel Choir.  We rehearse on Wednesday nights from 5:45-6:45.  You don’t have to make a long term commitment right away, you are welcome to sit in on a rehearsal or two to see how it goes.


For more information contact Nicholaus Cummins at 318-357-8296 or Choir@fumcnla.org.


DREAMS: GOD'S FORGOTTEN LANGUAGE

6:00PM - 7:00PM, Room 106

Rev. Doug Cain will teach this class.  The text is of the same name as our course and by John Sanford. This is a study of the spiritual and psychological significance of dreams.  The study explores the scriptures witness and psychological insights to the importance of dreams today.  God reveals his plans for us, others and even nations in dreams.  Pick up your text in the church office for $15.  Read the introduction and chapter one for our first meeting.


For more information contact Rev. Cain at 318-663-8898 or Cain@fumcnla.org.


DARE TO DREAM

6:00PM - 7:00PM, Room 207

Dare to Dream is a book, DVD, and group discussion by Mike Slaughter and facilitated by Linda Clark. This group is to explore God's dream for you, create a life mission statement, and commit to it. Ever say "Someday I would like to..." or "if my circumstances were different, I would..."? This group is a chance to play around with that, make some discoverires about yourself, learn how to live God's dream for you. You can get the book from the church office and it cost $12.  


For more information contact Linda Clark at 318-357-8296 or Linda@fumcnla.org.


DESIGN & DEVOTION

6:00PM - 7:00PM, Crossroads Cafe & Worship Center

This group is responsible for the amazing decor in Crossroads space from the stage design to the cafe decorations and they want you to get involved. This group will meet to discuss the upcoming themes in the sermons and how that translates visually. They will also do a short devotion. This group is led by Beth, Betty, and Mary.
