Texas Conference Bishop Scott Jones sends his blessings to all.
To your enemy – forgiveness
To an opponent – tolerance
To a friend – your heart
To a customer – service
To all – charity
To every child – a good example
To yourself – respect

Methodist Women play a big part in helping with Empty Stocking each December. Margaret Byers and Lisa Fountain enjoyed moving bikes in preparation for the 2015 distribution with one of the LCCLA young ladies helping from HISD. Activities are many and varied, expanding concepts of mission and outreach.
