This Christmas, The Bayou invites you and all of Acadiana to experience the sounds of the season at our annual Christmas concert. This festive event has something for the whole family to enjoy. We will transport you to a Christmas wonderland as we set the tone for this joyful season through music, community and fun surprises for all ages. Our pastor will share a brief message about the hope that was born on Christmas for all to receive. There is no childcare as we encourage you to enjoy the concert as a family, but we will have a special family area in the Commons to accommodate little ones who get restless. Please join us for this family-friendly evening!


Men's Night 
Thursday, December 7  | 6:45pm | Cafe

All men of Acadiana are invited to join us to watch the Saints game and enjoy a smoked meat/BBQ meal. There will be special prize giveaways during commercial breaks throughout the game! We encourage everyone to bring a bag of individually wrapped candy to donate to the Foster Children’s Christmas Party.


Women's Christmas Social 
Wednesday, December 13 | 6:30pm | Cafe

Get in the Christmas spirit with other women from The Bayou at our annual Women's Christmas Social. Enjoy a brief devotional, and take some time to relax and connect with friends during this busy season. MORE INFO


Student Christmas Parties
Sunday, December 17 | 9:30am & 11:00am | Middle school students
Sunday, December 17 | 5:00pm | High school students

One of our favorite traditions in Student Ministry is to have an annual gift exchange at our middle school and high school Christmas parties! There is a $20 gift-limit rule, and no food (besides candy) can be given. Creativity is not only welcomed, but encouraged. The more out of the box, (pun intended) the more fun! All gifts must be wrapped, and all students in Acadiana are invited to attend!


New Year's Eve 
Main Auditorium only | Sunday, December 31 | 11:00am

Join us on New Year’s Eve for our Sunday morning service in the Main Auditorium. You will encounter a friendly and inviting environment as you prepare for the new year by focusing on worship, prayer and God’s Word. (The Ministry Center, including the Cafe Venue, Bayou Students and Bayou Kids will not be open. We will all gather in the Main Auditorium. Childcare is provided for preschool only.)
