First UMC Gonzales

Armed Services Outreach

Armed Services Committee

The Armed Services Committee focuses on recognizing the contributions of active duty members and veterans in service to our country. An annual dinner in November has been one such effort. Our most recent remembrance has been a granite bench which was added to the columbarium area of the First United Methodist Church of Gonzales in memory of veterans from our congregation.

On Memorial Day, the committee enhances the worship service with commemorative activities and décor. The committee also has provided needed items to veterans in local assisted living and nursing homes and to the Veterans Home in Reserve, Louisiana.

Anyone interested in joining this ministry can contact Connie Francis (conlarfrancis@eatel.net or 225-715-2952) or Barbara Cox (barbar@eatel.net or 225-921-6363
