"This Week" with Pastor Frank... May 20, 2019

Dear friends,

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!  This past Sunday we had a fantastic Groundbreaking of our new Sanctuary!  We used shovels that had been used as we dealt with Hurricane Harvey.  Rev. Wesley Duncan, our architect, was here and read Scripture.  Matthew Wells and Danny Hannon of HBC, our Design/Build team, came with their families.  Afterward we had a combined service and potluck honoring the faithful service of Ann Whittington, who is retiring at the end of June.  Ann and her husband Fred were both presented with beautiful plaques, as well as cards and gifts.  

This Sunday we will have two Scriptures written by  Luke, Acts 1: 1-11 and Luke 24:44-53 as we look at the Ascension of the Lord.  Why did Jesus leave 40 days after His Resurrection?  Why wouldn't He stay around?  Come and see, 8:30 and 10:45.  

Beginning Sunday, May 26 and going through the following Wednesday we have the meeting of the Texas Annual Conference, this year at the Hilton Americas-Houston, 1600 Lamar. As you know, this is a difficult time in the life of the United Methodist Church, and we are called to pray for our leaders, for wisdom, discernment, guidance and courage.  

Most of next week, the week of Memorial Day, the office building will be closed because of the construction.  Phone will still be answered and meetings that normally go on during the week in the office building can meet in the CFC, but staff will not be able to get into our offices for a few days.  

We are in the process of beginning to build.  Like with any other project, we will have difficult days and times, but in the end, God willing, we'll have a new Sanctuary!  Thank you all for your prayers, your generous contributions and sacrificial giving to make this time possible.  God bless us, every one!

Faithfully in Jesus Christ,

Pastor Frank
