Chapelwood United Methodist Church, Houston – Origin:
The vision of Chapelwood United Methodist Church, Houston was seen by 13 people who met October 2, 1948, to discuss forming a neighborhood Methodist church.
Conrad and Lorene Bering, Chester and Arla Bintliff, Sally Carroll, Bill and Nitis English, George and Clara Hardeman, Berta Jones, Albert and Frances Lewis, and Carrie Rush vowed to “see this project through to its ultimate goal.”
They canvassed neighborhoods north and south of Katy Road to invite other Methodists to join the effort.
The first worship service occurred in December 1948, with 19 present at the Boy Scouts’ Camp Hudson, Memorial Drive at South Piney Point.
