MEALS ON WHEELS IS IN NEED OF DRIVERS

 Mangum took the Meals on Wheels delivery as a mission project for the church several years ago.  It only takes about 45 minutes to make the route.  We also need substitute drivers when one of the regular drivers is not available.  Please contact the church office or Diann Wilson (798-7645) to volunteer.


Children's Sunday School Teacher Needed

Volunteers are needed to teach a children's class for one month tours of duty. Materials and lesson plan will be provided, and if there are no students after 15 minutes, you will be able to attend your regular class. Sign up in the Narthex or call the church office at 318-636-7376.


Renesting Project 

Since January of 2011, the Renesting Projecthas provided household goods and reclaimed furniture to those transitioning from homelessness in our community. Thus far, 160 homeless families/individuals have been placed in homes through complementary agencies.   

In Louisiana United Methodisms emphasis to work with the poor,” Mangums Outreach Committee has called on our church family to respond. 

Volunteers Needed:

Volunteers are needed every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the Renesting site at 3113 Driftwood Drive in Bossier City.  Sorting of donated goods to prepare for someone moving from homelessness to a home is time consuming.  Contact the secretary at the Church Office if you can help

Our Spiritual Director

Jan Moss is Mangums Spiritual director and Spiritual Growth Co-ordinator.  She received certification in this field in 2008 and is trained in helping others meet life’s spiritual challenges. Though not counseling or even pastoral care, the work of the Spiritual Director is to help others find understanding in their lives under the direction of the Holy Spirit. The result is a closer relationship with God after going through the struggles of searching, questioning — “wilderness experiences” — to know one’s place in life. 

Jan is willing to spend as much time with you as necessary to help you find ways to grow spiritually. Contact her at 635-1472. Her services are free to anyone interested in such a spiritual endeavor.    


Mangum Prayer Line

Our Prayer Line ministry is in place.  When an urgent need for prayer arises in the Mangum Church family, please call Sherry Nelson at 318-458-2808  and she will get the prayers going through the Prayer Line.
