WEEKLY ACTIVITIES

FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH OF NATCHITOCHES

Weekly Activities Around the Church

We want you to join us for these weekly activities, either every week or when you can!


There is a wide range of activities offered every week at the church for you to participate in. Come check them out or contact us for more information.


YOUTH - 6th-12th Grade

Sundays 10:00-10:30 A.M. - Rm 203

Sundays 5:00-7:00 P.M. - Youth Lounge

Wednesdays 7:00-8:00 P.M. - Youth Lounge & Gym

Students have 3 chances a week to enjoy hanging out and devotion! Youth meets Sunday mornings from 10:00-10:30 A.M. to enjoy a short devotion about topics that effect their daily lives including choices, friends, and so much more. Sunday evenings from 5:00-7:00 P.M. youth gather for snack supper, recreation time, fellowship, and devotion that is focused on topic related to being a teenager. During devotion we look at issues that face them and how the Bible guides us through those times. Wednesday nights from 7:00-8:00 P.M. is a time to "Re-Fuel" because by mid-week we are all a little burnt out. During Wednesday nights we have recreation time and devotions that explores our relationship with God a little deeper. This group looks at their relationship with God through scripture and discussions. If you would like more information CLICK HERE or contact Lynda.

INTERCESSORY PRAYER

Tuesdays 5:30 P.M. - Prayer Room in Education Building

Got prayer? We believe prayer is powerful and that you can never have too many people praying for you and your loved ones. That is why the members of our Intercessory Prayer Group meet once a week to pray as a group for the needs of our church family. If you believe in the power of prayer and want to get involved, contact 318-357-8296 or prayer@fumcnla.org​.

CHANCEL CHOIR PRACTICE

Wednesdays 5:45 P.M. - Choir 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.

MEN'S BIBLE STUDY
