Bethel Church an 100 year old church has designed a Legacy Grant to support new church development and existing church revitalization. The Houston Association churches were charged with engaging evangelistic missions. Congregations met in small groups, brainstormed for months, and evaluated needs to effectively revitalize church and mission programs. The revitalization programs involved youth and senior programs, technology advances to serve the congregation and evangelism reinvented.
Bethel UCC hosted a presentation celebration January 5, 2020. St. Peter United UCC, Grace UCC, and Just Love a dual standing UCC/DOC church start were the first recipients of this grant. The three congregations are excited to implement programs that show God’s Love fresh and new in 2020 and beyond.
Thank you Bethel Church you are awesome, and the Houston Association is grateful.
