COTTAGE MEETINGS – Council is moving forward on our plan to have council members host Cottage Meetings this summer. As you may recall, this was one piece of the one-year vision presented at the Town Hall meeting on February 17. Cottage Meeting locations will be based on zip code demographics. You can expect to receive an email invitation for your Cottage Meeting location from one of the council members. All Cottage Meetings will be held simultaneously on Saturday, July 14, 2018 from 5-7 pm (later for those interested). The purpose of the Cottage Meetings is for faith community participants to gather and meet/re-meet one another and learn more about who we are thus strengthening relationships. For example, did you know that I once had an interest in becoming a Roman Catholic priest; that I attended one year of law school at Baylor University; that I previously judged baby pageants. This is just an example of what we can learn about one another as we discover our passions and areas of interest. Who knows, you may find that serving on council and being selected to be President may be one of your callings. I encourage each of you to commit to attending a Cottage Meeting on Saturday, July 14th. The invite via email, or regular mail for those without computers, will be coming soon. If you have any questions, please contact John Duarte at or 512-423-1694 (cell).

PRAYER AND HEALING SERVICE – Our next Prayer and Healing Service will be held on July 15 at 12:30 in the sanctuary.  We encourage you to come to the 9:30 worship service, enjoy a leisurely brunch, then come back for the Prayer and Healing Service at 12:30.
