Putting Your House in Order is a popular 1 1/2 hour workshop sponsored by the Texas Methodist Foundation. Putting Your House in Order guides participants through some of life’s toughest planning tasks. Matters discussed include how to have life-altering family conversations about passing on values, and how to allow one’s generosity and gratitude to God to continue even after one’s death.
The $10 per participant cost includes a 45-page booklet that is an invaluable resource for chronicling personal information for the purposes of probate.

Watch for details!

Memory Verse
Jeremiah 29:11
I know the plans I have in mind for you, declares the Lord; they are plans for peace, not disaster, to give you a future filled with hope.
Reflect on:
1) Which sacred season (Advent, Christmas, etc.) gives your life shape and form in this season of your life?
2) How do I want to live so I can be who I want to be?
Sermon Series
And it was Good
Designed for Change
Ecclesiastes says there’s a season for everything.  God created in a way that gave us seasons. So why do we think seasons won’t change (or have to change).
