Community Leaders Meeting
The July meeting of community leaders meet on the campus at The Church of Donaldsonville to hear Pastor Aaron Domengeaux, give an inspiring message of faith. Domengeaux and his wife Stephanie are missionaries working in East Africa with abandoned street children, providing counseling, rehabilitation, discipleship and evangelism and revival services.
Dorothy wasn’t the only one to say “there’s no place like home.” Bishop Kevin Barnes came home and brought members of his church with him to visit Donaldsonville. The group traveled from California and were excited to be visiting. They stopped by the Chamber of Commerce office to get a brief history of the great city. Bishop Barnes said it is always good to be home.
