Pastor Appreciation Month - October

“Then I will give you shepherds who trust and know Me, wise teachers who will impart knowledge and understanding to you.”  — Jeremiah 3:15

October is National Pastor Appreciation Month.  There is a basket in The Commons this month where cards, letters, gift cards and other forms of appreciation will be collected. You can also give love offerings through donations to Lake Houston Church, marked for Pastor Appreciation. Let’s show our pastors how much they are loved and appreciated!  Pastor Philip & Stacey will be honored on Oct 27. Pastor Chris & Stephanie Tiner and Pastor Bernardo & Ana Castaneda will be honored at a another time.

Pastoral Search Questionnaire at Info-Central

We know each of you are in prayer for Lake Houston Church during this time of pastoral transition. Another way that you can participate and assist the church board during this process is to prayerfully complete the Pastoral Search Questionnaire and leave it at Info-Central or drop it by the church office. (If you did not receive this questionnaire by email, blank ones are available at Info-Central.)

We will provide a booth, candy and a festival-style game for each host. Hosts will be responsible for decorating their booth, passing out candy and manning their provided game. A booth prototype will be available in the Commons the week prior to the Fall Festival so hosts can get an idea of how to prepare.  Please sign up at Info-Central!
