Welcome Back

We can't wait to be back together again in person, meeting on our campuses, in homes, and all around the community, and we're praying and planning in anticipation of that day. Resuming activities will be a phased approach, with some groups meeting on campus before others and with modifications to help us adhere to state and local guidelines. We are updating this page regularly, so make sure to check often. 


Istrouma's Welcome Back Plan for Phase One

On Monday, May 11, Governor Edwards announced that Louisiana will enter phase one of the state’s re-opening plan on Friday, May 15. Louisiana will remain in phase one until Thursday, June 4. See Louisiana’s guidelines for re-opening and phase one information here and here.  




Worship services will be held online only on May 17, 24, and 31.  Watch every Sunday at 9:15am on YouTube and Facebook.  In addition, small groups will also continue to be held online during phase one. Find an online small group here. 


Provided that Louisiana enters phase two, we plan to resume in-person worship gatherings on Sunday, June 7, following this schedule: 

BATON ROUGE:  Services at 8:00am,* 9:30am, and 11:00am 
ASCENSION:  Services at 9:30am and 11:00am
EN ESPAÑOL:  Services at 11:00am
LIVESTREAM:  9:30am on Facebook and YouTube

During the month of June, on-campus Sunday morning groups will NOT meet (no preschool/nursery, no kids, student, or adult groups). Plans for a spacious, sanitized, and safe environment will be shared later this week via email, text updates, and social media. Make sure you're signed up for our emails and text CONNECT to (225) 425-7773 to receive our text updates.

*The 8:00am worship service at the BR Campus is for at-risk populations.



While Next Gen small groups are not meeting at this time, Next Gen (birth through college) summer events are registering now! These events are contingent on Louisiana entering phase three of the state's re-opening plan. Find out more about Next Gen summer events. 

Next update

Governor Edwards is scheduled to issue another statement on Monday, June 1. Following that announcement, we will update you with information about plans for June.
