A Message about Our Communications Director
As many of you are already aware, our Communications Director, Vicki Thomson, has resigned from our staff to venture out on her own. We will miss Vicki and her commitment to excellence and the professionalism she exhibited in her four years of service here. Our church is thankful for every crossed t and dotted i.
When you see her, please take the time to express your appreciation (that’s probably not something we do for each other nearly enough) and pray for her new endeavors (there is no such thing as praying too much for each other). In the interim, as we limp along without her, please be patient with our spelling, grammar, and communication.
In the interim…
While we search for a new Communications Director, you will see some changes as we try to fill in and try a few experiments.
- If you need to send articles or communicate regarding Communications, the email address to use is:
- We will publish a new edition of the Family News every other week. That means ministry events need to plan ahead on communications,
and we will be firm about deadlines (10 days prior to publication).
- On Sundays, when there is a Family News, hard copies will be available for everyone, but a newsletter won’t be handed out to everyone. Newsletters will be e-mailed on the weeks when there is a publication. Remember, the website is always there for your
- We may even try some new formats. Don’t be surprised; don’t get upset; give us helpful feedback.
- If you have flyers that represent any activity or ministry of the church you want to be publicly posted, it requires the approval (for now) of the Lead Pastor/Lead Communicator. Allow 10 days for that and please use a format that the Church Office can edit.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Helping hands to the rescue
Have you heard that Bear Creek UMC will host a Junior High United Methodist Mission Project (JUMMP Camp) on our church grounds June 8-12?
Several church groups will come together to meet the home repair and maintenance needs of Bear Creek area residents who are unable to help themselves.
If you or someone you know could use help with home repairs, please contact Lisa Gill at email@example.com or 281.463.2330 or pick up an information sheet in the church office.
Bear Creek Youth will prepare and serve dinner for the camp on Monday, June 8. If you would like to serve and meet these amazing students, Lisa Gill would love to hear from you.
