Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
Information about the Coronavirus pandemic is rapidly changing. Each and every day we are being offered new ways to maintain our health, as well as protect the health of those most vulnerable around us. I want you to know that I am monitoring the situation closely and what it means for the ministry of Houston First United Methodist Church.
I am working with our Lay Leadership to ensure the wellbeing of our congregation. As of right now we will only be meeting for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Until the number of cases begin to decline we will not be meeting for Sunday school or any type of small groups.
Our Sunday morning worship will look a bit different for the time being. In addition to some changes in the service we will be marking off pews to help social distance. As you enter the sanctuary there are hand sanitizing stations, we ask that you use them upon entering and exiting. There will also be masks available for you. We strongly recommend the use of a mask. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this situation together.
God Bless each and everyone.
Update July 10, 2020
At the behest of the Bishop of the Mississippi Conference of the United Methodist Church:
"all churches in the Mississippi Conference to cease and desist all in-person gatherings at church—including drive-in church services—until further notice."
We will be continuing to broadcast our service through
Maxxsouth cable and Facebook Live. We hope you will tune in and worship with us.
