Each summer, First United Methodist Church of Hammond‘s musical theatre ministry Wing and a Prayer Players, goes all out in putting on a musical in which a cast of church members come together for numerous performances over a weeks time. So much effort and hard work goes into the play each year! During each performance, a love offering is taken up, the proceeds of which benefit the Methodist Children’s Home of Greater New Orleans.

This year marks the 8th musical presented by Wing and a Prayer Players. Their production of Beauty and the Beast, was again a stellar performance! Doug Hall, Development Officer for the Home was in attendance on several of the performance evenings and captured some great photos of the cast in various parts of the play.

Based on other successful musical theatre ministries in New Orleans and Chattanooga, church member Becki Bradford started Wing and A Prayer Players at FUMC Hammond. The church is located at 2200 Rue Denise, Hammond Louisiana 70403.

The Children’s Home youth and staff are so grateful to Hammond UMC church members and its Wing and a Prayer Players ministry for all they do to benefit our Home.
