Recap

The Seeds Unplanted - Church Planting Conference by the NAD evangelism institute was held at Houston Central. The Seeds Unplanted called attendees to know and serve their least-reached neighbors. 50 attendees, including many of our members, went out into our community to speak with some of these ethnic groups. It did show us a different way to look at the people around our church and how we can engage, with the understanding that many are from one of these ethnic groups. Watch some of the presentations here
Episode 4 of Season 1 of our online Forum aired last Thursday. They discussed, Loose Change or Real Change? Should We Give Money to the Homeless? We had a special guest, Bill Wells, from the ASAP Ministry. You can rewatch this program. Please also like, share and comment on the videos. By doing so, the algorithms would help show content like these to more people within and outside your sphere of influence.  

Ministry Feature: Community Services

Interview with Zelma Avila, Houston Central Community Services Director. "We are here to serve our community". Our community service serves over 120 family units. When you include the members of each family, the number of people reached goes up by hundreds. If Jesus was here at Houston Central, we would like to think He would spend most of His time with this wonderful department. It's a full-time volunteer-based commitment between getting, sorting, reporting and serving (3 days per week). They need your help. Would you commit to one session per month?
