A Message from Pastor Russell...January 14, 2021
Greetings Lake Houston UMC Family,
It has been an incredible first month of ministry here at Lake Houston UMC. I have enjoyed getting settled, our time spent worshipping together, and getting started in ministry here. I have already met with a few of our committees, with more meetings scheduled for this month. I have also had the pleasure of meeting some of you at our worship services and other occasions during this time.
Traditionally when a pastor comes to a new church over the summer, they try to set up opportunities for the congregation to meet with the pastor. As my transition happened during the Advent and Christmas season, one of the busiest months for the church, it was not as feasible to do. Additionally, we have had to consider covid-19 precautions and safety measures when planning any meetings to provide an abundance of caution in planning any meeting opportunities. I apologize for the delay in setting up appointments to get to know you as soon as possible.
I do think that time has now come. Next week I would love the opportunity to meet as many of you as possible in the way that you feel the safest and comfortable. I would like to hold a set of focus group meetings with small groups in the congregation. We will set aside time slots for meetings, both in-person and online. The groups need to consist of 7-10 people to allow for adequate time for getting to know each other, sharing, praying, and dreaming of what God is calling this church to do through our ministry together.
To register for a meeting, please contact Hannah Pray in the church office, and she can get you signed up.
All meetings online will be held via zoom. A link will be sent to you before your meeting.
All meetings in person will be held in the gathering space outside
the sanctuary. Chairs will be setup socially distanced and we will be wearing masks.
In Person 10-11am
Online 2-3 pm

If you are unable to make a meeting, or would like to meet with me at a different time please contact me and we will work something out. Just contact the church office at (281) 324-1541 to set that up.
I hope to see you in worship this Sunday in person or online!
