Men's Ministry

The men of First Presbyterian enjoy a variety of ministry and service together. We meet in various groups throughout the year, eat together, fellowship in one another’s homes, travel, study God’s Word and serve our neighbors. It is our desire to equip men to live as followers of Christ in the home, workplace and community. 
Football Watch Party, October 15
Men, the fall is upon us. Cooler weather, hunting season, LSU football, tailgates with family and friends—the things we love are finally here. It’s time we have some men’s events for the church!  
For our first event, we’re going to have game watching party. Maybe you’ve be wondering, “What could be better than watching LSU claim victory over Florida on October 15?” The answer would be watching LSU achieve victory while enjoying great food, conversation and fellowship with your First Presbyterian brothers in the Lord. Come join us at Jake Wood’s house  (3626 Primrose St.) on October 15. Even if you don’t love football, come join us anyway. You’ll be glad you did!
The church will provide drinks and meat for the grill, but bring an appetizer, side dish or dessert to share with others.  
The church will have some tailgate games to play (cornhole tournament anyone?), but bring a lawn chair to enjoy the afternoon because we’re assuming there’ll be a good number of us in attendance. Some are saying the game will start at 11 am but we’ll communicate more information once we know for sure. Though the cost of the event is free, we ask that you please register at so we can have an accurate head count for food. Even if you don’t love football, come join us. We’d love to have you!
Skeet Shoot, December 3
Mark you calendars now! On December 3 we are going to have another First Presbyterian Men’s Ministry Skeet Shoot! This event will be held at Bridgeview Gun Club. Located just 20 minutes away from the church, this event will be one you won’t want to miss. Great fellowship, prizes and we’ll have the place to ourselves. The shooting will be plentiful and fun as we’ll have opportunity to shoot 100 clays per participant. We’ll have use of thirteen stations, including the high and low houses! The food will plentiful, and we’ll be able to eat indoors in case of bad weather. So mark your calendars for December 3 - we’ll start in the morning and wrap up after lunch time.
Fly Fishing Trip
We’re also planning a couple of big events for 2023: a fly fishing trip in February and a retreat in the spring. Stay tuned for details.
