Psalm 100 (ESV) 1 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! 2  Serve the Lord with gladness!     Come into his presence with singing! 3 Know that the Lord, he is God!     It is he who made us, and we are his;     we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4  Enter his gates with thanksgiving,     and his courts with praise!     Give thanks to him; bless his name! 5 For the Lord is good;     his steadfast love endures forever,     and his faithfulness to all generations.

There never was any doubt about what church I would attend when I graduated from the University of Texas in 1953 and came to work in Houston.

We have had the JOY of knowing each of the senior ministers of SLUMC and each has had a positive influence on our faith journey. Our family of four joined SLUMC in the summer of 1963, having moved to Houston from Oklahoma City where we were actively involved in our small Nichols Hills Methodist Church. I recall saying to our children’s director that our logical church choice would be SLUMC, as we had bought a home on Bellmeade. I vividly recall moaning to her, “But it’s so big!”  Her comment was “the bigger the church the more corners there are [...]

We were high school sweethearts at Lamar High School and we were married in 1968 (51 years ago) by Dr. Shamblin. We have been blessed with our two children, Jack and Meredith, and with our grandson Matthew. All three were baptized at St. Luke's and Jack and Meredith grew up attending Sunday School at St. Luke's. Our daughter was also married at St. Luke's by Rev. Ron Morris. Our son is engaged to be married at St. Luke's in November with Rev. Denham presiding. In recent years we have been blessed to lead the Christian Friends program and more recently the Gathering Room [...]
