the table in the hallway. If you don’t see a set and
would like one, please call the church office. If you
give electronically, you don’t need a set, as it ers self-improvement programs and United Methodist Voluntary Services community advocacy projects. Your gifts on Human Relations Day will support an outreach program of Theressa Hoover United Methodist Church in Little Rock, Ark. The church sponsors a residential and out-patient program for men and women with addictions. Graduates of the program participate in an eight-week course that provides training for unemployed or underemployed people. The offering also supports Exodus House, a ministry in Oklahoma that helps former prisoners to receive the emotional, spiritual and physical support they need to make it on their own. Please give generously on Human Relations Day. Thank you!

The Joy of Music

Our very own church band, Leap of Faith, has CD’s available.  Suggested donation is $10.  It truly is a joy to hear!  See Ron DiCesare, Christine Jordan, or Philip Jordan to pick up one.

Your Gift Empowers Local Spiritual Development and Educates Native American Seminary Students to Serve God Faithfully.



    “Lots of urban Native Americans have lost connection with their culture, language and even identity, by choice or force,” says the Rev. Robert Pierce, Texas Annual Conference Committee on Native American Ministries chair.

To help counteract that loss, the Texas Annual Conference Committee on Native American Ministries introduced the Third Sunday Fellow­ship six years ago. On the third Sunday each month, Native Americans gather to worship in Houston to share their love for God.



Native Americans worship God as they honor their heritage with a rotation of primarily Native American pastors. Musicians and the congregation sing traditional hymns in Native languages. “We provide a safe place where people are understood and accept­ed,” says Rose Brewer, a CONAM member. “People find solace,” adds Brewer. “They really enjoy being in community with one another.”



Your financial gift empowers local outreach and educates Native American seminary students to serve God faithfully. The United Methodist Native American Ministries Sunday offering also helps preserve a rich cultural heritage. Thank you for your generous gift. Native American Ministries Sunday reminds United Methodists of the contributions made by Native Americans to our society. The special offering benefits Native American outreach within annual conferences and across the United States and provides seminary scholarships for Native Americans.

United Methodists relate to Native American Ministries Sunday by learning about and reaching out to Native Americans in their communities and by encouraging Native Americans to consider becoming pastors and nurturing them in their journey.






 It’s kind of like a small finger food party with family.  Just a few snacks, coffee, tea, and lemonade. See or contact  Cathy McGoldrick.


Come to Wesley Hall 45 minutes  early to set up, bring milk and a snack (store bought is fine) and stay to clean up.  If you recruit the help of a friend, is it even more fun!!!   There is a "Coffee" sign-up sheet in the Narthex. 


Detailed "coffee hour hosting" instructions are typed up and laminated and posted inside one of the cabinets in Wesley Hall. Barbara Roiland is ready and willing to help you learn all the "ins and outs" of hosting.  The mysteries of the kitchen will finally be unveiled!!




When:  Saturday, April 29

at 11 AM


Where:  Centerport United Methodist Church

on the back field


Everyone is welcome to bring their dogs, cats, birds, snakes, stuffed animals, or any other pet, as together we celebrate the love we have for these special “family members.” 

There will be music, prayer, sharing of stories, and of course a special blessing for each of God’s beautiful creatures.  Lunch will be provided!  Invite all your friends to bring their pets and come join us for a beautiful afternoon!
