Georgia Barnette

Behind the Georgia Barnette State Missions Offering

Following God’s plan for her life led Georgia Barnette to New Orleans, Louisiana. It was October of 1901 when she arrived at First Baptist Church in New Orleans to do missionary work. She immediately fell in love with the city, its history, its diversity and its needs. Her work as “church visitor” soon included some work with the women as well.

Contact with the recently organized Woman’s Missionary Union of Louisiana opened her eyes to the needs for Christ and for mission endeavors throughout the state. She was elected to be the first full-time, paid executive director/treasurer of WMU in Louisiana. In this role she engaged women in churches with God’s mission that people might come to know the Savior.

Telling the stories of God at work from south Louisiana to north, from east to west, was important to Miss Georgia. Hundreds of hand-written letters to churches and women’s groups effectively led Louisiana Baptists to pray fervently for state missions. She challenged them to give to state missions. She encouraged their personal involvement. The spirit of giving that she inspired planted a groundwork for the Week of Prayer for State Missions and what is now the Georgia Barnette State Missions Offering. Her example is a model for prayer and giving today.

Life Share Blood Drive

>>PRE-REGISTER HERE to avoid wait time<<

One in three people will need blood at some time in their life. When someone in the communities we serve needs blood, it is our responsibility to have it safe and readily available. The only way we can do that is through your donations.

With no substitute for human blood, volunteer blood donations save lives right here in our community every day. If you can give blood, please do. If you can’t, please encourage and support others who can and help spread the word. Donating blood only takes a short amount of time a few times a year, or when you are eligible.

The blood donation process generally follows these steps:

  • Before giving blood, make sure that you meet the requirements, get a good night’s sleep, eat regular meals and drink plenty of fluids.
  • After you present a photo ID and read the information sheet you will undergo a mini-exam (temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, and iron level) and then provide confidential answers to health history questions.
  • The donation takes place in a comfortable chair. Most donors feel a slight prick when the needle is inserted and nothing after that.
  • After the donation, you should sit down and have a snack and beverage. If you experience any light-headedness let your donor technician know and lie down until you feel better. Do not use tobacco products for the next 30 minutes. Leave the arm bandage on and do not engage in strenuous activity or lift heavy objects for the next two to four hours. For the next 24 – 48 hours be sure to increase fluid intake.
