FALL 2021
Member Congregations,

We at Interfaith of The Woodlands are so grateful for our Member Congregations, who through the challenges of this past year, have continued to serve and support our neighbors in need in South Montgomery County. As we look ahead for November and December, please see the many opportunities to serve through Interfaith. Since our very inception, in October of 1973, we have had the great privilege of serving alongside our 63 Member Congregations representing the beautiful spiritual side of our great community. Together, we will continue to Build a More Loving and Caring Community Through Service, and for that we continue to be so appreciative of your partnership to make an impact in the lives of the Families and Seniors in our area and fulfill our very worthy mission.

We hope you all enjoy these cooler, sunny days!

With a grateful heart,

Missy Herndon
