Worship this Sunday at 11 a.m.

Sunday, June 7 at 11:00 a.m.
It is Trinity Sunday, not a day to celebrate a doctrine (an often said misinterpretation) but a great day to celebrate who God is and how God wraps us all into God’s life by fusing God’s eternity into our collective history and our most personal lives. This festival Sunday will again include Holy Communion, God’s promise of tangible presence, too, in our private lives and our life together, nourished for the well-being of the world. We invite you to have bread and wine reverently ready to participate in God’s life—our lives together—in this important feast day of the Church.

Pentecost Worship: Sunday, May 31 at 11 a.m.

Wear Red. Sing loudly. Rejoice in the Promised Spirit of Christ wherever we are. The Spirit who calls and gathers still calls and gathers even while we worship differently from home. This festival Sunday worship will include Holy Communion, a tangible means wherever we are of the Spirit’s binding us together with Christ and each other, giving us the holiest means to be Christ for all we meet. We invite you to have bread and wine reverently ready to give praise—Eucharist—in this high festival of the Church. And, be ready to read aloud with us in a language of your choice from Acts 2:4-11.

A Lady Beetle -Discovering Our Texas Native Lady Beetles

Sunday, May 31 6:00 p.m., online
Sunday Evening Conversations on Creation Continue…
The CTK Creation Care Team invites you to a monthly environmental education web meeting series whose theme in 2020 is the wonders of nature.
Lady beetles, or ladybugs, have long been recognized as one of the best biological controls for many insect pests in both home gardens and agri-business. The diversity in this family of insects has been well-characterized yet they have largely been represented by only a few select species which have been introduced in the U.S. via different methods. So, who are our native lady beetles? What are their dietary preferences and habitat needs? This presentation is an introduction to some of the native lady beetles in the greater Houston area and an overview of their biology and habitat needs. Additionally, the presentation will explore threats to lady beetle populations, how iNaturalist can be used as a tool to discover who our native lady beetles, and some of the misconceptions about these fascinating insects. Join this conversation with Rebecca Lloyd, Texas Master Naturalist, as we wonder at Texas Lady beetles!
