But when he came to himself he said, “How many of my father’s hired hands have bread enough and to spare, but here I am dying of hunger!

Luke 15:17

"The lavishness of the father’s reception is signaled by the order to bring the fatted calf and kill it. Meat was not a part of the daily diet and was normally reserved for special festivals. The son’s return, however, is an occasion for celebration." - Alan Culpepper


Life Under the Cross

Lent Mission Opportunities - This Lenten season provides opportunities to share and serve:

  • Donate to Lord of the Streets (LOTS), a Houston faith-based organization engaging in holistic ministry with homeless and formerly homeless persons.

Invest in Our Youth // PLEASE HOLD OFF FOR NOW - Invest in our youth by making a designated donation, to help reduce the cost of priceless summer immersion experiences (camp, mission trips) by 50%. Donate online, by mail or offering plate. Our goal this year is $14,000.

Fill-the-Bin: Easter Candy Donations // PLEASE HOLD OFF FOR NOW - Donate individually-wrapped candy for our Easter Eggs (no hard candy, please) through April 5. Place donations in the designated bins found throughout the church.

Upper Room March/April Edition // DEVOTIONAL ONLINE HERE - Pick up the latest edition, whose theme during the season of Lent is trust. As we journey through the 40 days of Lent to Easter, Jesus shows how to trust God each step of the way.

Current Worship Series

Drawn to the Table, a Lenten worship series, requests our presence around one of the most powerful means of grace, the Lord’s Table. As we experience a period of spiritual reflection and discernment, hear Jesus beckon us to His table. Hear a message that satisfies the hungry heart. Hear the wondrous story, we who thirst for love divine. Be drawn to the table.
