Flood Relief - Southeast Texas
Our members, clergy and church buildings have been impacted along with large numbers of our neighbors. As is our practice, the TAC is coordinating with the Red Cross and local authorities to support their emergency response.
Our role continues to be in mid- and long-term assistance. We are currently assessing the needs and determining exactly where to set up relief centers. We will put out the call for volunteers and specific fund raising targets. If you wish to make financial contributions at this
time, please make checks payable to

Dear Pastors, Lay Ministers, and Churches of the East District,
It is with very mixed emotions that I share this news with you today. As you know, it is appointment season. You may also know that Rev. Bill Taylor, Superintendent of the North District, is retiring effective July 1 of this year. Bishop Huie has appointed me to be the new Superintendent of the North District, effective July 1. Further, I am pleased to announce that Bishop Huie has appointed Rev. Tony Vinson as the new Superintendent of the East District, effective July 1. Tony currently serves as Senior Pastor of Clear Lake UMC. Some you will remember that Tony served as Pastor of Perritte Memorial UMC from June 1988 through May 1993. Tony is very familiar with the East District, and he has a great love and appreciation for the more rural ministry of the district.
As you might imagine, Kathy and I are excited about the new opportunities before us, but also somewhat sad to be leaving the Most Beautiful District! Still, we have work to do here for the next few months before the transition.
In the meantime, I am blessed and honored to serve with all of you in the ministry of our Lord! You make the East District beautiful, and I love you all!
PS Please do reach out to Rev. Tony Vinson to welcome him to the East District. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
