A Word From Our Pastor
What a first three months it has been! I am beyond grateful to everyone for the encouragement and support as we move towards building Metairie Ridge into the church that it should be. As the dust begins to settle from the past months,
MRPC is doing many great things in the community and surrounding area, and I want to take this opportunity to update you all on some of the things happening in our church.
Our mission opportunities are beginning to take shape with Program of Hope at the core. Part of the expansion planned for our mission opportunities includes the Food Bank at Jefferson Presbyterian Church and Crescent City Cafe in New Orleans.
All of these homeless outreach programs serve a great need for our brothers and sisters in Christ who have fallen on challenging times.
On other fronts, much-needed repairs have begun to happen in both the sanctuary and MRPC campus. I want to thank Muriel and Reuven for all of their hard work! Cosmetic repairs to the sanctuary are being finalized,
and our beautiful sanctuary should be restored just in time for Advent.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the children in our CDC for Chapel on Monday mornings, and I continue to look forward to unifying the work of the church with the mission of our schools. Breakfast with Santa is on the horizon,
so mark your calendars and join us on December 15th.
These are just a few of the things happening, and there are many more to come. The future is bright for Metairie Ridge, and I can’t wait to see what is in store for this church. As we move into the holiday season,
my hope and prayer are this; that we continue to work together to grow this church with God’s guiding hand showing us the way.
