Jefferson Presbyterian is a small, yet diverse community church located at 4450 Jefferson Hwy, in the shadow of the Huey P. Long Bridge.
Although we lost our sanctuary in early 2008 due to a tragic fire, we continue to hold weekly worship services and other activities in our Fellowship Hall. Despite our loss, our faith is stronger than ever and we are dedicated to rebuilding our sanctuary so that we may continue to serve God and our community.
We are located a few blocks from the Huey P. Long bridge, right next to Jefferson Elementary School.

Breaking New Ground

Jefferson Presbyterian Groundbreaking Ceremony Panorama Click to Download LARGE version (4.3MB)

After the Worship Service on Sunday, Nov. 20th, 2011 we held a short ceremony to celebrate the groundbreaking for our new sanctuary. Jefferson Presbyterian Groundbreaking CakeThankfully the weather was warm and sunny and we were all able to go outside and take a group portrait in roughly the same spot as the original 1925 groundbreaking photo that hangs in the Fellowship Hall. Thanks to Elizabeth and Kurt for donating the huge (and delicious) cake. Construction should begin within the next few weeks and, barring any weather delays, we are hoping to be in the new sanctuary by next May or June.

Come visit us and see the progress!
