I think it was Robert Lewis Stevenson in the opening lines
of his book, " The Tale of Two Citys", who said , " It was the
best of times. It was the owrst of times."  How this continues to
be true.  Isaac was a bad storm, but God demonstrated His grace
to His people.  Yes, we are greatly Blessed.
Because of some phone complications  that I was not able
to silence, I had my cell phone number changed. I apologized for any
inconvience.  If you need to reach me, please call the church office
@ 985-345-4002 or home @ 985-345-7654.
      Here are a few opportunities for you to minister and to be
involved in the life of our church.
     On Wednesday, the 12th, servers are needed at the
Baptist Collegiate Ministries at noon. This is our time to
feed the students of S.L.U. Call Richaleen at the office for the
information if you need to.
         On Sunday, September 16th, we have our annual baptismal service
and picnic at Camp Living Waters. Baptism will begin at the river at 4:00 P.M.
Picnicking will start thereafter up at the picnic grounds. The water slide will
be open from 5:00 to 7:00 and the swimming pool will be staffed with life guards from 5:30 to 6:30.
For the picnic food, the church will provide pulled pork, buns, tea, lemonade,
and paper products. You are asked to bring salads, vegetables or
desserts. (Bring enough to share, please.)
     **An added note: To be prepared for any possible mosquito bites,
please bring insect repellant with DEET in it. Also, for children, we have learned
that Vitamin B-1 is a great deterrent too.   
     Be sure to read the insert about the Fall Food Round-Up for the Louisiana
Baptist Children’s Home.
     The Congregation on Wednesday night agreed to merge the remainder of the
Bell Tower Fund with the Van Fund, This gives us $11,860.00 in the Van Fund. Our goal is $20,000.
This month on September  9, 2012 we welcome Tori Gay as guest
music leader.  She attended school here; lives in Columbia, MS; but is soon to be
a resident of TN.  It is a joy to have her to encourage us to worship our  God.
I would also like for us to not forget that Tuesday, September 11th. We
remeber tha attack on our shore by terrists who were thwarted in
their planned destruction!  Praise God for the countless heroes who gave or
risked their lives that fateful day.  Two thousand nine hundred seventy-seven
innocent people were murdered that day, September 11, 2011 which to use
President Roosevelt's phrase, "will live long in infamy."
Soul Sisters
In August, we had our 1st ever
“Accessory Swap and Fabulous
Fashion Show.”
What a “FABULOUS” time it was to have so many friends and 
visitors to get to meet, and share this special time.
Good friends, good food, and good fellowship.
 Our Ladies meet each month on the third Sunday from
4:00 to 6:00 PM in the churchcafeteria. For the month of September, 
our church will meet at Camp Living Waters
 for a special time of baptism and picnic.  Hope to see you there, and bring a
friend this is always a fun and exciting time.
In God’s Service,
Stacy Harris

Well hello September!
What season is it?
Yes it is and our youth are working
the LSU games. We are so proud
of their hard work.Keep up the Great 
Work Fusion.
 I heard someone saythe other day, "Grrrr kids these days."
Yes kids are different than when you grew up, but the challenges
they have are also different.  Consider the world they are
living in compared to the world you grew up in. Check out these
By the age of 18
The number of violent acts a child sees on tv is 200,000
The number of murders seen on tv is 16,000
The number of minutes per week that parents spend in
 MEANINGFUL conversation with their children: 38.5!!
That is just to name a few.
How can we complain if we are not spending the time
with them to instile the values we are wanting
them to have? Television is not a good babysitter.
Before you complain about "Teenagers of today",
Pray for them.
Upcoming Events in September
September 22 We will be going to
Camp Living Waters for an overnight
Rally with Northpoint Youth Group from
