Christmas at The Bayou


We invite you to join us for any of the following opportunities for you, your family, and friends to connect, find meaning, and celebrate the birth of Jesus throughout December.


Christmas Concert
 Sunday, December 23 | 3:00pm, 5:00pm | Auditorium only
 Monday, December 24 | 1:00pm, 3:00pm, 5:00pm | Auditorium only

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 event!

All men of Acadiana are invited to join us for our monthly Men's Night! We encourage everyone to bring a bag of individually wrapped candy to donate to the Foster Children’s Christmas Party.
