Welcome to the First Presbyterian Church portal. Please choose an option below to see our events, small groups or to give online.


Men's Ministry

The men of First Presbyterian enjoy a variety of ministry and service together. We meet in various groups throughout the year, eat together, fellowship in one another’s homes, travel, study God’s Word and serve our neighbors. It is our desire to equip men to live as followers of Christ in the home, workplace and community. 

Skeet Shoot, December 3

This event will be held at Bridgeview Gun Club. Located just 20 minutes away from the church, this event will be one you won’t want to miss. Great fellowship, prizes and we’ll have the place to ourselves. The shooting will be plentiful and fun as we’ll have opportunity to shoot 100 clays per participant. We’ll have use of thirteen stations, including the high and low houses! There will be lots of food and we’ll be able to eat indoors. With the unpredictability of Louisiana’s weather, an email will be sent the day before the event to let everyone registered know if we need to alter the start time due to rain. 
Our skeet shoot is still a go even as the SEC Championship game will be late that afternoon. To make the day even more exciting, we’re going to include a "Shoot Down the Dawgs" competition – it’ll be fun. To make sure we have plenty of time to have a great shoot, enjoy lunch and still get home with plenty of room to settle in for a 3 pm start of the game, we are moving the time of our skeet shoot up to 8 am. The shooting will begin at 8.30 am.
Please bring your gun to the event, but gun ownership is not required. You can let us know if you would like to borrow a gun when you register. Clays, ammunition and food are included in the cost to attend. Alcohol will be available for purchase at the Bridgeview bar.
Teams will be in groups of 4-5 men. You will be given an opportunity to tell us who you'd like to be on your team.
If are not planning to shoot but coming to enjoy the fellowship and food, please let us know if you are willing to serve during the event. For example, we would like to have safety marshals at each shooting station. 
Saturday, December 3
8 am to 1 pm (The shooting begins at 8.30 am)

Boys 12 and older are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. Please register boys separately. 

Fly Fishing Trip

We’re also planning a couple of big events for 2023: a fly fishing trip in February and a retreat in the spring. Stay tuned for details.
