Welcome to a place and a space where I should talk about myself. That subject matter is quite mundane! I would rather talk about the way that Jesus can make a difference in your life. Communicating the grace of God to a culture that feels entitled is one of the great challenges we face in church life. We all stand in need of the grace the Jesus provides. I invite you to discover that amazing grace for yourself.

If you would like to know more about that grace, I invite you to attend First United Methodist Church in Natchitoches, Louisiana.

We host three worship services on Sunday morning. At 8:45 in our sanctuary, we invite you to our Traditional Service. At 9:30 and 10:45, we gather for a Contemporary worship services in our CrossRoads building.

The 9:30 and 10:45 services are streamed live from our website,

If you would like to know more or hear more, I am on the radio five mornings a week with the Perceptions spot and I write a weekly article that appears on Friday in the Natchitoches Times.

Now I have said a little about me, what about you? Let me hear from you, about how I can make your church going experience one that transforms your life.
