First Place | New Session

Orientation for the next First Place session will be held May 13th at 6pm.  Come and be introduced to the Christ-centered weight loss and healthy living program!
The cost for new members is $90 which pays for the member’s kit and Bible study.  This session’s Bible study will be ‘A Better Way’.  Our world is full of contradictions.  We have amazing technology that can make our lives easier, yet we are more stressed and busier than previous generations.  We live in a country with great wealth and resources, yet poverty and homelessness are constant.  Outer beauty is valued more than inner beauty.  And even though we know more about healthy living and have more resources to make healthy choices than ever before, overweight and obesity rates continue to rise.  There is A BETTER WAY and that way is JESUS.

Returning members’ cost is $20.

Call the church office at 337-824-3271 for more information.

VBS 2024

Every day is an adventure at Breaker Rock Beach, from the morning waves crashing against the shore to evenings filled with bonfires and s’mores! Race along the sand with your brightly colored kite, join friends to make the most amazing sandcastle, or gaze in wonder at the mysteries found in a glimmering tide pool. As the crowds come and go and the tides ebb and flow, Breaker Rock rises majestically as a symbol of strength, standing firm against the force of wind and waves.

At Breaker Rock Beach, kids will learn to recognize the difference between what the world says is true and what God says is true. They’ll encounter five everyday sayings that sound right, but dangerously miss the truth found in God’s Word. Each day kids will be challenged to know that God’s truth never changes—even when it’s radically different from what some people say. They’ll discover that God does not want them to be conformed to this age, but to be transformed by the renewing of their minds so that they can discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2).
