South District Annual Picnic

on .

On Saturday, August 27, clergy from the South District, together with their families, gathered at CrossRoads UMC for fellowship, worship, and fantastic BBQ catered by Killen's.  We were excited that Bishop Scott Jones and his wife, Mary Lou Reece, graciously accepted our invitation despite the fact that they were still in the process of unpacking and settling into their new home!  Bishop Jones and Mary Lou joined us in worship and also met with clergy and their spouses.  It was a great opportunity for the South District to get to know Bishop Jones and Mary Lou, and to hear about his vision for the Texas Annual Conference.
