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.
Monthly Hope and Healing Service - 1st Sunday/Month
We will have Hope and Healing Services in the Laffin Chapel the first Sunday of each month. Persons can come and light a candle for themselves or a loved one. They will then hear a short devotional and be invited to have persons pray with them or they can just pray on their own.
Rev. Harold Travis will conduct the service. Come at 10:40am to receive prayers or to join others in prayer.

Interested in Becoming a Lay Reader?
The Traditional Worship Service lay reader group is interested in adding some new readers.

Would you like to become a reader, or would you like to consider becoming a reader? If so, please call the church office at 281-488-5110, or call Bob Merriam at 281-488-1253. He would be pleased to discuss the lay reader duties with you, in hopes that you will choose to join us.

Tuesday Morning Eucharist & Devotional
One of the greatest joys of the Christian life is sharing in Holy Communion. Somehow Christ's presence is mysteriously real as we share in this sacrament. You are invited to come and share communion with members of the church staff every Tuesday from 9:15-9:45am in the Laffin Chapel (the little chapel at the west end of the Narthex in the Sanctuary). In addition to communion we join together in singing hymns and receive inspiration as one of the staff offers a short devotional.
Communion in the Chapel
Every Sunday, except the first Sunday of the month
Communion and a time of quiet reflection are offered in the Laffin Chapel from 10:40-11am. Anyone who wishes may enter the chapel, partake of Communion, and spend time in quiet meditation. Although Communion is only offered once a month during our Traditional worship services, Communion in the Chapel allows you to reflect on Christ’s sacrifice and your forgiveness any Sunday. The Contemporary worship services offer Communion every Sunday. We welcome all.
Ushers Needed in Traditional Worship
Ushers needed in all services. For more information contact Dick Burghduff 281-488-3263.
