10 Worship

We gather for worship, Sunday, September 24 at 9:30a. We celebrate a decade of ministry with Word & Sacrament! Bishop Michael Rinehart and our founding pastor, Reverend Christopher Markert will be present to help mark this ministry milestone.

 

10 Happy Hour

A simple gathering on Saturday, September 23 for Happy Hour (4-6p). This is 10 Years to the day after Celebration gathered for the very first time. And Cork Cafe is the quaint little gathering spot where the dreaming began. Come and go –  enjoy good company, good libations and great memories.

 

10 BBQ Lunch

Celebrate 10 years of ministry with a hearty BBQ meal! You know, like good Texans do. BBQ brisket, chicken, sausage and all the sides. Including homemade bread and tasty desserts! The fun doesn’t stop there! We’ll also have games, challenges, music and more.

Purchase your tickets here.
All proceeds go to the 10 for 10 campaign!

 

10 for 10

Celebration has been marked by generosity from the very beginning! And we think there’s no better way to celebrate this new milestone in ministry than by sharing God’s goodness. So, let’s mark our 10th Anniversary with generosity as we give $10,000 to these partner ministries:

ELCA World Hunger
Works to end hunger so people can flourish wherever they are.

Holmsley Elementary School
Our partner school, a Title I campus located in the Cypress area.

Montrose Grace Place
Creates a safe space for vulnerable homeless youth of all orientations.

Refugee Services of Texas
Helps immigrants, refugees and displaced peoples integrate and thrive.

Cy-Fair Helping Hands
Addresses needs and empowers of those who are housing insecure.

Sagrado Corazon
A new missional community in our synod, just like Celebration was 10 years ago!

HOW?
Now that we know who, how is this going to come to life? We hope to raise funds in a variety of ways.

Reformation Beer & Hymns – October 22
The largest portion will come from the 4th Annual Reformation Beer & Hymns. Through this event, we hope to raise $5,000 for ELCA World Hunger. These efforts will dovetail with the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod focus on raising $500,000 for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. With our powers combined, we can make a bold impact on world hunger!

10th Anniversary Celebration
Beyond Beer & Hymns, we hope to raise additional funds as we celebrate 10 years of ministry! This will include a love offering, BBQ lunch, games, challenges and more. This day will certainly put the FUN in FUNdraising. (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself).

Individual Donations
And because our goal is bold, we also welcome individual donations! Perhaps you’d like to give a gift in honor of a beloved pastor or ministry leader – past or present. Or maybe you cannot make it to either event but you’d still like to mark our 10th with generosity. We welcome your gifts for ‘10 for 10’ effort.

Feeling Generous? Donate online now.

Between our 10th Anniversary Celebration and Individual Donations, we hope to raise the remaining $5,000. These monies will enable us to share $1,000 each with Holmsley Elementary School, Montrose Grace Place, Refugee Services of Texas, Cy-Fair Helping Hands and Sagrado Corazon.

10 for 10! Let’s continue Celebration’s legacy of bold faith and bold generosity!
