BBQ & YOU
Join us for a Friendship BBQ honoring the new members we have gained and welcome our teachers and school families back to school. NEXT Sunday, 23 August, 12:30 PM- 2:00 PM.
Delicious Texas BBQ will be provided. Please bring a side or dessert to share with your fellow members and guests. Sign-up Online or visit the table in the Commons this Sunday to sign-up. You may drop it off in the church kitchen on the 23rd before or after the services.
We are also looking for a few good Lutherans to help with clean-up afterward. If you can help, contact Bryan Janhsen (our Fellowship Chairman) or call the church office and speak to Wayne or Tessa at 713 782 6079. Remember many hands make for light work! We need your help!

What You Need to Know about Marriage
What Is Marriage?
Marriage brings a man and a woman together as husband and wife to be father and mother to any children there union produces.
Marriage is based on the biological fact that reproduction depends on a man and a woman, and the reality that children need a mother and father.
Marriage is the building block of all human civilization. It has public, not just private, purposes. Marriage is a unique relationship; it brings together sexually complementary spouses, in a monogamous relationship, where they pledge to each other to be faithful by vows of permanence and exclusivity.
