Missions Matters

Royal Lane has a long history of answering God’s call to love through service. “Missions Matters” will appear in the Mosaic on a regular basis. It will highlight our continuing commitment to missions and other matters where we reach out to the community. This will be a place where we will tell our stories and perhaps help you find what “matters” most to you.

Shirley Bohannan became interested in Meals on Wheels in 1975, when Paula Bright encouraged her to try it. Shirley is still there today: volunteering continuously for 43 years.

Shirley says she loves it because it gives her an opportunity to give directly to someone. ‘I receive the blessing because while I’m giving to them, they are helping me. I have become attached to many clients over the years.” She, along with “Royal Laners” Sylvia Turnbull, Fred Binder, and Steve Box, have provided many years of faithful service.

Meals on Wheels is administered by the Visiting Nurses Associations. Volunteers deliver nutritious meals to individuals who cannot provide for themselves due to illness, advanced age, or disability. Currently they need a driver for Fridays, once a month. If this interests you, please contact Shirley Bohannan.

Mission Trip 2014: Wrap-Up

Posted: August 12th, 2014, 11:41 am

Do Justice. Love Mercy. Walk Humbly.

Last fall, Blake Miller suggested that we consider partnering with Church for the Highlands in Shreveport for our 2014 mission trip. After only one conversation with the pastor, John Henson, and youth minister, Kyle Kelley, it was clear that this would be a meaningful partnership. Like Royal Lane, Church for the Highlands is deeply concerned with issues of poverty and social justice. Indeed, their entire ministry is a missional outreach in one of Shreveport’s poorest communities.

John and Kyle described for us the work that they and other CBF churches in Louisiana had been doing for several years in the community of Lake Providence, Louisiana. As we learned in a recent CNN video, Lake Providence is home to the greatest income gap in the country. We felt the call, so we went.
