CURRENT & UPCOMING EVENTS
It’s back! Our God at the Movies series is returning this summer and this year’s theme is “Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust.” We love this series because it reflects a greater spiritual exercise. We believe that God is always speaking and if we’re listening we can hear and learn new things in all that we do, even in the movies we watch. In this series we will explore spiritual truths in contemporary films, which all happen to be Disney films: The Lion King (original), Frozen, Coco, and Tinkerbell.
Typically, we’d come together each Friday night to watch the movie we would explore on the Sunday. However, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases continues to rise in our county, so it isn’t feasible or safe for us to come together to view the movies together in-person. So we are inviting you to watch a movie at home each week prior to the Sunday worship service:
- The Lion King (original) before July 19
- Frozen before July 26
- Coco before August...
My name is Jordan Czichos and I am a Duke Divinity School student from The Woodlands, Texas! I went to college in the small town of Nacogdoches where I earned a Bachelor of Music with a focus in voice from Stephen F. Austin (go Jacks!). I was an active member of my sorority, Sigma Phi Lambda, and served in various roles at the SFA Wesley Foundation where I began exploring my call into full time ordained ministry.
I am a certified candidate on the Elder track in the United Methodist Church and I have one year left in my Divinity school education. My degree concentration is in Church Planting; I love finding unique ways for the church to be transformative in the world! At Duke, I serve on the Graduate Student Council and Methodist House Leadership as well as enjoy the occasional basketball game. I currently work at a non-profit family housing shelter in Durham where I plan and assist in programs for adults and teens staying in the shelter.
In my free time I enjoy hiking, listening to audiobooks, and getting to know people over a cup of coffee. I am excited to work at...more
Westlake United Methodist Church has moved to “virtual” interaction and suspend all in-person church activities and meetings effective immediately. This includes all Sunday morning classes and worship services.
We have one online worship service at 11:15am. It is super-easy to participate. Just click here. At 11:15am on each Sunday the livestream will begin. If you miss it, you can still click this link and, once the landing page loads, click on the archived service in the right-hand column to watch anytime. There will be two buttons on the top left-hand side of the screen. The top one will say, “Register Your Attendance” and the second will say, “Give Now” so that you can easily tell us who all is worshiping with us and submit your offering online.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.
