Listen as Pastor Sean introduces Decades:

Small Groups

The Decades experience is extending beyond Sunday mornings and into the week ahead through small groups. We believe that life is better together and we encourage you to participate in the 8-week small group study where you will be able to engage and apply the principles to your own life and connect in Christ-entered community. The interactive curriculum includes a small group video, followed by a guided discussion time.

Pastor's Letter:

You and I—and everyone who is a part of The Bayou—are a part of a huge story of redemption and hope that God is writing. It didn’t start with us … and it won’t end with us, either. ...

We’ve come to a crucial moment in our story. We have the opportunity to build on the legacy of our past and lay a strong foundation that will carry The Bayou forward. If we respond in faith, what we do in the next two years will impact the lives of adults, students, and kids for decades.

Sean Walker, Senior Pastor

Decades Overview Handout


God planted a vision in a faithful band of believers from Emmanuel Baptist Church. Their obedience to plant a church east of the bayou on a dirt road has grown and impacted thousands in Acadiana. Take a look at how God has moved in the last 56 years!
