L.Y.F.T. MINISTRY—Sunday is a great time to be together with your church family isn't it? Sadly, we have members who want to join us but do not have a ride. We are seeking adults to drive either the church van or personal vehicles as part of our new L.Y.F.T (Living Your Faith Transporting) Ministry. Help these church members attend the 11 am worship service on the first Sunday of each month so they can partake in communion alongside the rest of their faith family by giving them a L.Y.F.T. If you feel led to serve in this ministry please contact Nannette Flowers at or 318-325-7335.
