Thanks to all 175 of you that came to the 2018-2019 Vision Meeting last Sunday evening! If you missed the meeting, it was recorded and the handouts are available to you. Just contact Harry Fritzenschaft.

This Sunday, we start a new series that will continue until the first Sunday of Advent entitled "PERMISSIONS." This is Communion Sunday, so the elementary kids will be with us until after worship, and then we will head to the Norhill Room on the 2nd floor. If you are available to serve communion, please check in at the desk in the lobby before service.

We hope to see you Sunday!

How Worship Changes Lives - Fuller Seminary Lecture
Thursday, November 8th, 7pm Cafe
How does worship impact and change us? How do our songs and sermons, prayers, and praises all come together to actually help us learn, grow, and develop as disciples? Dr. Alexis Abernethy is a clinical psychologist and professor at Fuller Theological Seminary who has spent years studying the worshiping lives of diverse congregations. Her research focuses on how our worship practices facilitate spiritual transformation and growth. We invite you to join leaders from around the Houston area as she shares the results of her research and invites us into a larger conversation about how we can design and lead worshiping communities toward deeper spiritual growth and development. No registration necessary.
