Beginning Aug. 8, Spring Community Church will offer a traditional service at 9 a.m. followed by community groups for all ages at 10 a.m. and a contemporary service at 11 a.m every Sunday. In addition to Sunday services, Spring Community Church is also the home to one of Sam Houston State University's three charter schools, Girl Scout and Boy Scout programs, and reVision, a program for at-risk teens. The church will also host Upward Soccer this fall, Horton said.
"Our church believes that we are planted by Christ and growing in love, which for us means that we are in this particular location because God has work for us to do here," Horton said. "We hope to continue that work into the future, creating meaningful partnerships with other community organizations and building bridges into the neighborhoods."
In addition to a new name, Spring Community Church also completed church-wide renovations in early July. Horton said this is the first remodel for the 40-year-old church which has spent the past 37 years in the same facility.
"This remodel and name change brings us in line with who we are becoming and have already been," she said. "Our space is now more welcoming for the community, and our name will reflect that we are community for our community. We had not done any significant [remodeling] work until now, and we couldn't be more thrilled for what's ahead."
Spring Community Church's new website, www.springcc.org, will launch Aug. 1. 281-353-2436. www.ctumc.org
