The United Methodist Church - Response to the needs on the Border

This Sunday, August 3, we have an opportunity to respond to Bishop Huie’s plea to donate to the needs on our southern border. Prayer is essential and it’s something everyone can do. In addition to that, our Communion Offering this Sunday, August 3 will go to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) for this effort. Please make your checks payable to CLUMC (Clear Lake United Methodist Church) with a note on your check that reads “Border Response”. Thank you for your continued support of the ministries and needs of the United Methodist Church.

Clear Lake UMC Youth Choir Reunion, Marvin Gaspard Trio and Jazz Communion

     Sunday, August 3 will be an opportunity for former members of the Clear Lake UMC Youth Choir to come together and lead our congregation in worship. If you have ever been a member of the Clear Lake UMC Youth Choir during its 50 year history, please join us! We’ll meet together on Saturday morning, August 2, 10am-12Noon. We’ll enjoy lunch (Dutch treat) at an area restaurant after the rehearsal. If you can’t make the Saturday rehearsal, join us on Sunday morning, August 3 at 8:30am in the Choir Room. We’ll sing for the 9:30 and 11am Traditional Worship services. Our congregation is grateful to God for the marvelous, rich history of our music ministry through the years. Let’s enjoy a weekend of making music to the Lord and renewing old friendships!
     The Marvin Gaspard Trio will be joining us again for Jazz Communion services on August 3. Our order of service will remain the same! However, you will experience Marvin’s personal touch in the arrangements of the congregational hymns, choral anthems, communion responses and instrumental pieces. As Director of Music/Organist-Choirmaster at St. Luke’s Presbyterian Church, Marvin’s music is undergirded by his faith and deeply spiritual approach to playing the piano. He is the published composer/arranger of both sacred and secular choral octavos, organ/piano duet books, and children’s folk music. Marvin is the resident pianist for The Lyric Centre in the heart of Houston’s Theater District.
