TRANSPORTATION MINISTRY is looking for adult volunteer drivers to pick up Senior Adults, living in Monroe and West Monroe, on Sunday mornings so they may attend Sunday School at 9:30am and worship at the 10:50am church service. Currently, we have a church member in West Monroe needing a ride. If you feel called to provide this ministry to our older adults, please contact Nannette White Flowers at Nwhite@fumcmla.com or 325-7335.
THE PRAYER ROOM is now open. It is located in Room 18 at the end of the East Hall. This space is for you or a small group to have a small sacred space to gather for prayer time.
WE ARE FORMING A PRAYER LEADERSHIP TEAM. This group will be prioritizing prayer for our congregation by setting prayer goals and mobilizing people to pray. Contact Olivia Pruett at the church office if you would be interested in serving the prayer leadership team.
