If you drive down Sienna Ranch often, you’ve noticed several churches all right near each other. I love that this section is known as “Church Row.” I am a member of the Harvest United Methodist Church and we were recently given some big news — we are getting a new pastor.
Jeff McDowell has been a huge blessing to the congregation of the Harvest UMC since its start. Jeff is leaving and will pastor a church in Sugar Land soon and is being replaced with Ben Lohmer. Ben is an Aggie, as is his wife Ruth. He graduated with honors from the SMU Perkins School of Theology with a Master’s in Divinity degree. Ben was previously the pastor of Cornerstone UMC and has a passion for missions and ministry. He enjoys hunting and fishing and they have a daughter named Abby.
There will be a welcome barbecue for the Lohmers on May 16 at 11 am under the Pavillion at the Harvest. You do not need to be a member of the church to attend and the community is invited to come out and get to know Ben.
