Pennies from Heaven
We believe that all God’s children deserve an equal chance at life and we work to instill that Christian belief in our Belle Chasse UMC children.
Each Sunday in worship, right after the “Children’s Sermon”, our children collect “pocket change” for their children’s mission project. This mission benefits The Methodist Children’s Homes; The United Methodist MacDonell Children’s Services; and G.R.A.C.E. Camp, a United Methodist camp for children of incarcerated parent(s). So far, the children have collected over $26,000.
All students from grades 6th through 12th grade are invited to participate in Belle Chasse United Methodist Church’s youth ministry. Our ministry is rooted and grounded in God’s love. We seek to help youth recognize and accept God’s grace, discover their spiritual gifts, and to grow in faith and in service to others.
To best meet the needs of our youth, Belle Chasse United Methodist Church has partnered with several of the United Methodist Churches on the West Bank of New Orleans – Gretna, Aurora, Boynton, Asbury, and Algiers UMCs – to form the Best Bank Youth Group.
The Best Bank Youth Group gathers once a month for a time of fun, food, and faith formation for youth in 6th-12th grade. We play games, participate in missions, lead devotionals, host movie nights, and engage in all sorts of fun activities to engage our youth.
