"The mission of the LWML is to assist each woman of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod in affirming her relationship with the Triune God so that she is enabled to use her gifts in ministry to the people of the world"
The LWML meets monthly; gathering "mites" for national & international missions. See our calendar for dates & times.
Thrivent provides complete financial services for Lutherans. Our local chapter helps sponsor church and community events which included our Fall Festival.
A special group of members that set up communion each Sunday; change chancel accessories
according to the church calendar. We thank them for their dedication to the church.
One of the most active groups in any church is the property committee.
They work to keep the building clean; lights working and facilities ready for every church event. Their volunteer time keeps the church & ECC running smoothly.
About our Property:
Our original church site was built in 1956 on Hollywood road. In 1983 we had to move for the new Martin Luther King Drive to be constructed. Our current facilities on Valhi Blvd in Houma, Louisiana were begun in 1984 with the construction of the Sanctuary. Rear classrooms were added in 1987 and the Fellowship Hall addition with classrooms were added in 1991. In 2004 the rear classrooms were converted for use as an early childhood center which included the addition of a playground with fenced areas. In 2006 the nursery and kindergarten rooms were combined and upgraded to house the 2 year old care facility.
Our Daily Use:
Our large Fellowship Hall is used by various groups for meetings throughout the week. After Sunday services it is the "meet and greet" area with coffee and goodies. The hall includes a large commercial kitchen. Between the hall and offices are classrooms used for Sunday School. Our separate class building and office area room are used daily for the Early Childhood Center (ages 3 and 4) and the 2 year old program.

We consider our youth to be a great resource and an investment in the future of the church. Our youth group is also a service group providing the best biscuits a donation can ever buy on a Sunday morning. All that helps them to save for the next youth convention.

Every summer we host an evening Vacation Bible School with dinner provided. We have a great time teaching the word and doing crafts. Songs and group study highlight the beginning and end of each night. Check your email or back here for dates and times.
Every Tuesday at 1:00 pm members gather in the conference room for a midweek bible study led by Pastor Rich. Days and times can vary so check the bulletin for the latest study date and time.
WORD OF THE DAY:
"Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit."
