Future of Lake Houston Methodist Church

We voted to disaffiliate from the UMC and join the GMC... now what?

A Message From Pastor Russell

Dear Lake Houston Methodist Church Family,


At our called discernment vote held Sunday, October 30, 2022, our church voted to approve the resolution to disaffiliate from the United Methodist Church and affiliate with the Global Methodist Church.


This page will update you on what is next for our church.


I want to thank you for your patience throughout this entire discernment process.


Please continue praying for all affected by this decision and pray for our church as we continue to move forward in faith, ministering to all in the Lake Houston Area.
