Vibrant Church Initiative Stirrings
The Vibrant Church Initiative is going strong. We started in February with our Service of Prayer and Repentance, giving God opportunity to free our hearts for the people around us who don't know Christ.
A few weeks ago we had our visioning workshop, and the participants were given homework to pray not for what we want but to discern what God wants for us as Bear Creek UMC.
Our Leadership Development Team is the last group that is forming. All the other prescription committees are working hard, showing great commitment and enthusiasm for their tasks. And we all pray that you are praying that we will move forward as a church.
Our first deadlines will be coming up at the end of March, but a new level of hope and excitement seems to be stirring already. Let us seek to be a church with the hands of the Father, the mind of Christ, and the passion of the Holy Spirit.
Grace and peace,
Namesake Bible study begins in two weeks
Starting Sunday, March 23, Marilyn Wetzel will facilitate Namesake: When God Rewrites Your Story. The six-week ladies’ Bible study is slated for 5:00pm in the Bear Creek UMC Library every Sunday, except Easter, through May 4.
Authored by Jessica LaGrone from Woodlands UMC, Namesake uses six stories from the Bible to illustrate different times that God stepped into lives that needed changing and announced his presence and power with grace and truth. “Who is God?" and "Who is God calling me to become?" are questions that will be examined.
Please contact Marilyn Wetzel at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Are you a first-time visitor? A special gift awaits!
If you are visiting Bear Creek United Methodist Church for the first time, please stop by the Welcome Center in the Courtyard after the service to receive a 12-ounce ceramic coffee mug, paired with a spoon that fits neatly through the handle.
Our latest mug features the new Bear Creek UMC logo, set against a sleek black exterior. The mug’s interior and spoon are bright red.
Additional mugs are available for $5 each in the Church Office, Welcome Center or HeBrews Coffee House. Proceeds allow Bear Creek UMC to give mugs to first-time guests.

Move over, Hollywood!
A variety of entertainment from magic to vocals amazed and delighted the audience at the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper & Talent Show the evening of March 4.
The annual event, directed by Bear Creek UMC Music Director Matt Wallace and sponsored by the BCUMC Staff, raised close to $800 for the Houston Northwest Community Center Food Pantry.
Nicholas Schweers and his sister Lauren sang individually and tied for first place, netting the most “votes” purchased by attendees. BCUMC member Kay Kennedy won the “Guess the Staff Mug Owner” contest and received a special mug to call her own.
Celebrate God’s extravagant grace!
