The Gifts We Pass Along
Our church is a connectional
church (meaning we are
connected with all other
Methodist Churches). We
support the Great Connection
with money each year for
Missionary Programs as well
as Texas Conference
Programs. We also give
money each year for local
outreach. We have a special
fund – the Emergency Fund –
that you may contribute to at
any time. This is a special
emergency fund for those
needing help with bills to
supplement Interfaith funds.
As a denomination we can
respond to missions
anywhere in the world in
a special way.
We make financial
commitments to mission in
faith that members of our
church will support them.
Our mission is more than just
helping people. It is a response
to what has been handed
down to us through our Lord,
the greatest gift of all.
UMCOR (United Methodist
Committee on Relief) – You
can make out a check any time
during the year to UMCOR.
The money will go directly for
helping people in times of natural
disasters such as tornadoes,
hurricanes, floods and earthquakes.
UMCOR can be any place in the
world within 24 hours with needed
supplies and stay until the area
has been restored. Checks should
be made out to CLUMC and
Clear Lake United Methodist Church has established a tradition of ministering to others by doing service projects throughout the year. Find the volunteer opportunity that appeals to you - then take the plunge and feel your life begin to become more meaningful. Be a part of people helping people!

Sewing Kits Needed for UMCOR
Our UMW will be providing sewing kits for the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) this summer. Sewing kits foster independence rather than dependence. Women can make clothing in their own sizes and in the style of their culture. Cottage industries often grow out of UMCOR-sponsored sewing classes where women use the sewing kits to practice valuable income-generating skills. All kits are carefully planned to be as usable as possible in the greatest number of situations. Because of strict rules that sometimes govern product entry into international communities, it is important that kits contain only the requested items.
If you or your group would like to contribute toward UMW’s summer project, please write a check payable to CLUMC-UMW, memo it as UMCOR Sewing Kits, and place it in the offering. For more information, please contact the UMW president, Jean Gates, at 281-997-8777.
