serve As one of the fist churches in Caldwell Parish we have been serving this community for over 100 years! Our calling is to reach out to our neighbors both local and long distance and that is why we engage in a variety of missions. Giving Spirit Food Pantry. Our food pantry feeds 50 families every month right here in Caldwell Parish. It is a client’s choice food pantry which means the client gets to pick out the food that is right for them. All the food is provided through generous support and donations from our members, a partnership with Hebert United Methodist Church, and our annual Pumpkin Patch. Second Sunday Soup. The second Sunday of the month is Soup Sunday. We have volunteers that prepare a delicious and nutritious soup for our shut ins. After School Tutoring. Every Wednesday night during the school year we offer an opportunity to help our students in Caldwell Parish Schools. We have adults and high school students available to help with homework and learning. Wednesdays at the Cross. Our children and youth work on mission projects in the area one Wednesday a month. If you know of someone in need of yard work, light repairs, or just a special visit let us know! Weekend of the Cross. Every summer our youth go to the Weekend of the Cross in Ruston, Louisiana to work on houses, worship with others, and study the word. The impact to the community is measurable, but the impact to these young people’s lives is incredible.
