For Your Reflection....

A BRIDGE FOR COMMUNITY

Let’s be honest...explaining to others who we are as a church is not always an easy task.  With a name like “Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)”, you’ve said a mouthful, but you might find people looking at you like you haven’t clarified anything; or worse they may get the wrong impression.  I remember speaking with a woman about my church – upon hearing that we were part of the Christian Church (D.O.C.) she exclaimed, “that sounds like one of those ‘bible-thumping’ churches!  Are you one of those ‘bible-thumping’ churches?”  I explained that yes, we do believe in the Bible, but no, we probably are not the stereotypical ‘bible-thumping’ church that she is thinking of...read more

Vacation Bible School and Afternoon Camp July 29-August 2, 9am-3pm

 

Gas up the all-terrain vehicle and head out on a wilderness adventure like no other.  Get up close and personal with elephants and egrets, polar bears and penguins, cockatoos and crocodiles, and so much more! Grab your camera and zoom in on these animals in their nature habitats. Maybe you can even snag a snapshot or two!

 This summer kids will focus in on some amazing, real-life encounters with Jesus. Each encounter is like a snapshot--a specific moment in time captured ion the pages of Scripture.  Through VBS, kids will discover that each snapshot of Jesus is an opportunity to respond to the gospel.  And when put together, these isolated encounters clearly reveal the most amazing trust of all--Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Son of God, and by believing we can have life in His name.  Are you ready for an up close and personal encounter with Jesus?  The adventure of a lifetime awaits!

In partnership with St. Paul Lutheran Church, and Lutherhill Ministries, VBS will be held at First Christian Church, 8484 Old Hammond Hwy, Baton Rouge, July 29-August 2, 9:00am-3:00pm.  First Christian and St. Paul Lutheran will direct the VBS theme program from 9am-noon each day, and Lutherhill Ministries will lead an afternoon camp from noon-3pm Monday-Thursday.  On Friday, August 2, we will have an opportunity for the parents to come and watch a performance and join us for lunch--we will dismiss early on Friday following the program.  We will partner with Lutherhill Ministries and St. Paul Luthern Church, but welcome children from any and all churches and families!
