"This Week" with Pastor Frank... July 11, 2019

Dear friends,

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!  Last week we looked at "Zeal for Good" using this older word which means a deep enthusiasm.  John Wesley wrote an excellent sermon called "On Zeal", available here:

Zeal can be the most important or the most destructive element in our walk with God, depending on how it is channeled.  Much of our current political and social justice anger can be called zeal, but it is a zeal toward destruction.  This week we will follow the thought with "Zeal for Others" and look at the story of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10: 35-37 as well as start a new sermon series on Colossians as we explore Colossians 1:1-14.  Come and see, Sunday at 8:30 and 10:45.  

We welcomed new members Don and Shelly Underwood, Colton and Presley Dampier, J.D. Heaton, Shelby Witt, Paisley Eudy and Abby Libby, several generations of a wonderful family that have been visiting us for several weeks.  Welcome!

This past week our Revolution Youth hit the 13,000 mark for the sandwich meals provided to the Huffman Food Pantry!  This project began in September, 2016 when the youth and adults wanted to do more local missions after their first FUGE camp.  Many thanks to the generosity of the congregation and friends of Lake Houston UMC for providing the food and all the supplies to make this possible, and a special thank you to Ann and Tobe Williams and their teams  who help make sandwiches when the youth are on break.  

Please keep our new Sanctuary and builders in your prayers.  We are awaiting permits, including from TexDot.  Many people are working to get these permits issued.   Once they are, building will begin.  

Faithfully in Jesus Christ,

Pastor Frank
