No Services

Due to the shift to the west in the track of this storm, which puts us on the dirty side of it, and following the advice of the Parish Sheriffs to stay off the roads tomorrow morning, I am canceling our services in the morning, July 14. Stay safe.
If our home phone and cell phone go out like during the last storm, we can possibly be reached on the church phone - 318-640-5580. 


Food For Thought:

w.h. guthrie

We must be emptied of self before we can be filled with grace; we must be stripped of our rags before we can be clothed with righteousness; we must be unclothed that we may be clothed; wounded, that we may be healed; killed, that we may be made alive; buried in disgrace, that we may rise in holy glory. These words, "Sown in corruption, that we may be raised in corruption; sown in dishonor, that we may be raised in glory; sown in weakness, that we may be raised in power," are as true of the soul as of the body. To borrow an illustration from the surgeon's art: the bone that is set wrong must be broken again, in order that it may be set aright. I press this truth on your attention. It is certain that a soul filled with self has no room for God; and like the inn at Bethlehem, crowded with meaner guests, a heart pre-occupied by pride and her godless train, has no chamber within which Christ may be born in us "the hope of glory."


(Habakkuk 2:4) "Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith."

But for pride, the angels, who are in hell, should be in Heaven (Jude 6); but for pride, Nebuchadnezzar, who is in the forest, should be in his palace (Daniel 4); but for pride, Pharaoh, who lies with the fishes, should be with his nobles (Exodus 14); no sin hath pulled so many down as this, which promised to set them up. Of all the children of pride, the Pope is the father, which sitteth in the temple of God, and is worshipped as God (2 Thessalonians 2:4). But for pride, the Pharisees would have received Christ as gently as his disciples; but for pride, Herod would have worshipped Christ as humbly as the shepherds; but for pride, our men would go like Abraham, and our women like Sarah, as they would be called their children; but for pride, noblemen would come to church as well as the people; but for pride, gentles would abide reproof as well as servants; but for pride, thou wouldst forgive thy brother, and the lawyers should have no work.


To believe God is not a little thing: it is the index of a heart reconciled to God, and the token of true spirituality of mind; it is the essence of true worship, and the root of sincere obedience. He who believes his God in spite of his sins, does him more honor than cherubim and seraphim in their continual adoration. A little thing faith! How is it then that unbelief is so great a crime that it is marked out for reprobation as the one damning evil which shuts men out of heaven? Despise not faith lest you despise God. Whatever else you put in the second place, give faith the lead; it is not a vain thing, for it is your life.


Dr. John Duncan was once heard thus addressing a beggar­ woman in Edinburgh – "Now, you'll promise me that you'll seek: but mind, seeking will not save you, yet it is your duty; and if you seek you'll find, and finding will save you." 



Isaac Watts – 1719
From Psalm 95

Come, sound His praise abroad

And hymns of glory sing;

Jehovah Is the sovereign God,

The universal King.


He formed the deeps unknown;

He gave the seas their bound;

The watery worlds are all His own,

And all the solid ground.


Come, worship at His throne;

Come, bow before the Lord;

We are His work and not our own;

He formed us by His word.


Today attend His voice,

Nor dare provoke His rod;

Come, as the people of His choice,

And praise your gracious God. 

(Tune: "I Love Thy Kingdom Lord") 


(Psalm 27:13-14)  "I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thy heart; wait, I say, on the Lord."
