In appreciation of the Deputies of the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office, Pastor Norman Bryant and members of the Rowland Road Baptist Church prepared and delivered lunch to the deputies Tuesday, May 2, 2017. Sheriff Jay Russell and the Deputies wish to express their deep appreciation to them for their generosity and show of support for OPSO. It also has a special meaning and serves as comfort to the deputies during this time of mourning the loss of one of their own. We appreciate the congregation of Rowland Road Baptist and the outpouring of support from our community. We are truly blessed to serve the residents of Ouachita Parish.
This is a monthly ministry that wants to express gratitude and thanksgiving to our local educators and law enforcement officials. We have a team of works who prepare a complementary meal for various groups in our community. They organize, deliver, and serve the food for those who come to the lunches. Many are touched by this act of kindness and appreciation for those that serve and sacrifice in our community.
This year we joined a few local churches to have a safe alternative to the Halloween night celebration. The community came together for a night of fun, games, food, and lots of candy! The various churches had informational booths to reach out to those needing a family of believers to connect with. All were greatly appreciative of this very successful night of fun!
