  • GETTING CONNECTED WITH THE PASTOR

Members are invited to select a session to attend, and at that session, we will get to know one another a little bit better in a smaller setting.  We also want to hear how you view House of Prayer and the ministries we provide.  We want to make sure that the ministry that we are doing here at the church is congruent with the passions of the congregation, so that we can maximize and efficiently carry out the mission of the church.

Remaining dates for the sessions are:

  • Wednesday, September 19 at 6 p.m.
  • Saturday, September 22 at 9 a.m.
  • Tuesday, September 25 at 7 p.m.

UPCOMING CONGREGATIONAL EVENTS

Dinner for 8, registration now open.
“SHAKE THINGS UP” with Dinner for 8! Dinner for 8 is a great opportunity to get to know and enjoy fellowship with more members of our congregation. At the suggestion of some long-time participants, we are going to try something different this fall. Please sign up as you normally would. Groups will then be “mix and matched” – some in-home people with some restaurant people. Whoever hosts each month will decide if dinner is in their home or at a restaurant. If you have any questions, contact Karen Mikkelsen at 281-488-5310 or klmikkelsen@yahoo.com.


Wednesday, September 26 (9 am) & Thursday, September 27 (3 pm)- Quilting
Please join the Quilting Group to tie layers of quilts together. On these meeting days, we simply put down a sheet, add batting, put the quilt tops on and then tie the three layers together with crochet thread. More help is always needed. The group makes quilts to donate to LutheranWorld Relief.
