The youth's beginners class for Knitting & Crochet, Summer 2014 was a huge success. We all celebrated the last day with a party and all students were attending
and receiving their Certificate of Completion. The parents attended as well as our invited guest Pastor Ricky. Teachers, Linda Anderson, Shirley Spearow and Linda Margrave all enjoyed teaching
the children, who ranged from 5 yrs. to 11yrs. of age, so much so that they intend to continue with
the summer program next year. Here are some of the pictures taken.
The monthly Prayer shawl meetings have been postponed until further notice. If you are in
need of a prayer shawl please call due to the youth crochet/knitting class. For more information,

each recipient prayed for. This Group meets every Tuesday morning at
10am in the Church’s Choir Room. All denominations are welcome and

Reverend Boudreaux was the pastor of the local Cajun Baptist
Church and Pastor Thibodeaux was the minister of the Covenant Church
across the road. They were together standing by the road, admiring their
work in putting a new sign up that read,
“Da End Is Near. Turn Yo Sef 'Roun Now Afore It Be Too Late!”
As a car sped past, the driver leaned out his window and yelled,
“You religious nuts!”
From the curve, they heard screeching tires, and a big splash. .
Boudreaux turned to Thibodeaux and asks-
“Do ya tink maybe da sign should jus say ...’Bridge Out’?"
