“You Gotta Have Faith” - It’s October Outreach

Luggage Drive for Faith House

October’s Outreach Project is a gently used luggage drive to benefit Faith House. Faith House is a domestic violence crisis center and shelter, based in Lafayette, Louisiana and serving seven parishes throughout Central and South Louisiana, including Lafayette, Vermilion, Acadia, St. Landry, Evangeline, Rapides and Avoyelles.

Often times the victims of domestic violence are required to make several moves in an effort to find a safe space to reside, seek legal protective services, and begin to heal their trauma. Many of them arrive at Faith House with the few possessions they gather while fleeing an environment of violence and arrive at Faith House with those few belongings in trash bags. Your gently used luggage donations can really benefit Faith House clients. Please bring luggage to the designated outreach area in the Narthex. Outreach Ministry Team members plan to deliver collections to Faith House on a weekly basis. So, clean out your closets and donate some luggage!


Meal Service at The Clearport:  Please join outreach to cook and/or serve a meal to benefit students at The Clearport Learning Center on Thursday, October 18. Sign-up in the Narthex!

You might be the missing piece to the St. Barnabas Outreach Ministry Team. Outreach is looking for some new ministry team members to help us reach new heights of service to God through fellowship to others.

 What’s involved?  Outreach meets the first Tuesday of each month at 6 pm (dinner provided). The team meets monthly from January-June and August-December. Help bring ideas to the table, organize and participate in outreach projects. Ministry team commitments rotations available are one, two or three year terms.
