CURRENT & UPCOMING EVENTS
"When someone dies, you don't get over your grief by FORGETTING, you get through your grief by REMEMBERING." (Author unknown.)
We offer you, family members, neighbors, friends, a time of Hope and Healing, a Grief Support Seminar. This is a six-week seminar dealing with the issues surrounding loss. Maybe the loss of a loved one, of a life changing event that brought loss, or of other loss markers in our lives. (This pandemic year has been experiences of many forms of loss.) During the sessions, we will explore various coping skills and ways to help one grow through this experience into a level of wholeness.
Sessions will start Tuesday, Feb. 2, 7:00 pm. You may attend one, some or all the sessions. There will be 1 class session per week. Tuesdays, 7:00-8:15 pm. All sessions will be by Zoom, virtual, not in person, due to the pandemic.
This seminar is workbook based, with a $20.00 charge for materials. It is open to church members, guests, and the larger community. (Payable to WUMC, or you may ask for a scholarship of the workbook...more
Everyone wants happiness. The surface-level variety can be easy to find but hard to keep. Rather than looking for the latest and greatest self-help trend or fad; we look back to something much older and much wiser. There’s something so poignant in the ancient teachings of Jesus that points us to happiness. And these teachings might surprise us. We invite you to join us for this 6-week series at 9:00am or 11:15am from Sunday, January 10 - Sunday, February, 14 as we explore "What Makes You Happy."

Gratitude Rocks! That’s what we are celebrating during this year’s stewardship emphasis. Gratitude rocks us and inspires us to meet God’s infinite generosity with a generosity of our own expressed through a commitment that offers to God our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.more
Temperatures are trending downward in South Texas, albeit slowly, so the first week in October seems like a great time to return to our favorite working grounds in South Texas. The need for building wheel chair ramps is growing, but our case managers will decide on our top priorities, and decide on the best use of our time.
I'll head down the morning of Sept 30th and we'll return the afternoon of Oct 4th. I'll have coolers with cold water and Gatoraid, and lunch fixn's for a couple of days. I must admit that the sausage gravy and biscuits with fried eggs for breakfast were pretty good, so you just might just see a reprise of that one morning.
As always, come when you can and leave when you must. Hopefully we'll have a good turnout, because as I stated in my last report, many volunteer groups have faded away, so the need for us has grown. The fact that we've been doing this for over 2 years is a testament to our dedication and commitment. I thank you all for that.
Let me know if what days you can make it so we can prepare accordingly.
