This Sunday is Mother's Day! This is always a great Sunday as we honor and celebrate women and the mothering gifts they bring to God's Kingdom! We appreciate all the women in our lives who have nurtured, loved, mentored, and cared for us! Our speaker this week will be Dania Harder, the wife of our future senior pastor, Josh Harder.

And in the Cafe, we'll have mums for the ladies and a photo booth where everyone can take photos with the special women in their lives.

We'll see you Sunday!

Special Update on Kaylen Simpson

Kaylen Simpson with her dad Mark.

Kaylen has been moved to a rehabilitation hospital in the Cypress area so that she can continue to recover. She is making such steady progress! Her voice is coming back, she is able to move her legs more, and she is breathing on her own. We are so thankful to God! Please pray for a smooth transition to this new facility. We want her to feel encouraged, comfortable and cared for as she takes this huge next step.

If you'd like to help with medical bills and Kaylen's living expenses until she is back, you can go here to give. We are also providing meals for the family on Sunday and Thursday. To make a meal for the family, click here.  

Thank you so much church!

Thank you from David and Patsy Gausepohl

Dear Houston Vineyard,

We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all the generous contributors who helped toward the gift we were given. Please know that we received it with joy, and the timing was perfect due to medical bills that were already accumulating. We continue to be amazed at God's provision and the generosity of his people. We miss you all, and thank the Lord for the Houston Vineyard.
Sincerely, Patsy & David
