Education Ministry: Recognizing the Bible mandate to grow in knowledge of God's Word, at Houston Park uncompromising support to our congregation's Sunday morning and Wednesday evening Bible School program is encouraged and sought.  Under the oversight of the elders and directed by one of the deacons, the education ministry coordinates all the teaching programs of the church, including both Sunday morning and Wednesday evening Bible classes for all age groups. It is responsible for teacher recruitment and training, the Resource Center, and the church library. It also has responsibility for the annual summer Vacation Bible School

Fellowship Ministry: At Houston Park, the saints realize that we are members of Christ and members one of another.  We seek to grow closer to one another as we draw near unto God in fellowship.  The fellowship ministry plans, or assists in planning, various fellowship activities for the entire congregation as well as special segments of the congregation. The ministry maintains a calendar of planned activities to insure an efficient use of the facilities without conflicts with other events.  There are two special features of this ministry area: 

         Prime Timers Ministry:  This ministry is coordinated by a deacon and provides for fellowship and other activities for adults from College age to age 55.  It is believed that in providing fellowship and service opportunities for the young and the aged, those in the "prime of life" should also be considered and their special needs fulfilled. 

         Young at Heart Ministry:   This ministry coordinates the activities of our senior members. These activities include outreach efforts, special service projects, field trips, fellowship activities, and the maintaining of a "buddy" system among our senior saints.   Back to Ministries Page

WORSHIP MINISTRY

At the heart of the life of Houston Park is the regular worship of God according to the pattern of the New Testament.  As the saints gather on the Lord's Day and at other times to worship God and edify one another, we seek to offer our heavenly Father service that is reverent, orderly, and up-lifting.  Under the oversight of the elders, the worship ministry assists in planning the worship services of the church. It is responsible for selecting men to lead prayer, serve communion, read Scripture, make announcements, and to serve as ushers and greeters.  Mark McLemore is the regular song director. Each Sunday, Houston Park's weekly newsletter, Houston Park Update, is made available to those who attend.  This informative publication provides a program of worship, information about those in need of prayer, and details concerning congregational events.   Also, Sermon Notes, edited by the minister, provides an outline study guide for the sermons along with some additional reading material. Each fourth Sunday night, we have Singing Emphasisa period following a devotional in which we learn about music, worship, and our songs. Each fifth Sunday of the month, the young men of the congregation prepare lessons and lead all activities of the Sunday evening worship service.  Back to Ministries Page
