Day Of Week: Sunday, 5:00 pm

Our group, the Dirt and Sandals Group, is named so because at one point there was just Jesus, and His sandals walking and worshiping in the dirt. We have our origins in a group of friends from all walks of life and for a time, there were only two of our 10 members that went to The Bayou. So, being a member of The Bayou isn't a requirement ... wanting to be there and learn is. We usually have 5-7 men ages late 30s to 60s and we normally meet every other Sunday from 5:00 - 6:00 pm in Youngsville. Currently, we meet in person and we are also available for those wanting to join virtually. We meet every week during those times the church is doing a study, however. We are a laid back group of derelicts with a common interest ... We all have a story and I am certain that one of our stories and our past is worse (more jacked up) than yours. Perfect people need not apply. ;)
