God, through the prophet Amos, calls us to let “justice roll down like waters.” Our rituals of baptism (the origins of Lent) call us to be a just people who "resist evil, injustice, and oppression.” Join us during Lent as both Amos and our baptism inspire us to renewed passion for the justice we witness through Jesus as he journeys to the cross.more

A note from Pastor Tracey:
I’m so grateful for your continued prayers and encouraged by your deep interest in responding to the needs of those affected by Harvey! As our Annual Conference, District, and local church have continued to plan, I have new information for you on how you can make a difference in response to this natural disaster.
Our Rio Texas Conference Bishop, Robert Schnase, and our District Superintendent, Teresa Wellborn, request that we direct our financial giving to the Rio Texas Conference Disaster Response Fund. Like funds given to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), all donations will go directly to relief and recovery efforts as opposed to administrative or overhead expenses. Additionally, by giving to the Rio Texas Fund, all giving will directly benefit affected communities in the Rio Texas Annual Conference. With your donations, we will partner with UMCOR to sustain this relief effort for the many months ahead. They will allow us to offer immediate relief and to partner with...more
You’re used to hearing about giving in church. Especially lately with the great need left behind by hurricane Harvey. But when was the last time in church that you talked about earning or saving? Is it unchristian to earn money? Is it wrong to save for ourselves and our families?
John Wesley didn’t think so. Wesley, the Christian evangelist and founder of the Methodist movement, gave a remarkable sermon called “The Use of Money.” In it, he said that the important thing isn’t money itself but how we use it. Wesley’s surprising advice still rings true today: earn all you can, save all you can, give all you can.
For four Sundays, beginning on October 22, our church will experience an exciting new stewardship program, Earn. Save. Give.: Wesley’s Simple Rules for Money, developed by popular author and pastor James A. Harnish. The program centers around a book and DVD, in which Harnish describes Wesley’s surprising advice and introduces us each week to faithful Christians who, like all of us, struggle with money.
