February 2, 2021

Hello First Methodist,

Can you believe it is already February of 2021? I want to thank you for your love and devotion to both Jesus and First Methodist Houston as we all continue to trust God during the storm.

Yet still high, COVID-19 numbers are decreasing. Two members of our staff are currently being tested and awaiting results. As always, I will continue to be in communication with our leadership, and I’m hopeful we will resume in-person worship within the next few weeks.

Ash Wednesday is quickly approaching, as is the start of Lent. Be thinking about what you will give up, or do additionally, for this Lenten season. We will be offering online Ash Wednesday services at 8:05 a.m., 12:05 p.m., and 7:05 p.m. and curbside ashes from 7 a.m. – 9 a.m., 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., and 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. at both our West and Downtown campus. For more information, click here. We would love to have you join us online, curbside, or both!

Beginning February 25th, friends of ours from Trinity United Methodist Church will join us on our Ask Me Anything podcast for a special discussion series of the book, The New Jim Crow. I invite you to pick up a copy and read it with us as we continue the conversation of what it means to pursue justice in our day and time.

As you can probably tell, there are a slew of things happening at First Methodist. I invite you to take a moment to view some of these listed below, and visit our webpage to find out more!
