9.3 miles east of Interstate 45 just south of Conroe Texas in Montgomery County a wonderfully strange building on the corner of Highway 242 and Old Houston Road. Area residents refer to it as the "Hershey Kiss" church, but from the outside it looks like no other church you have seen. However, within the walls of this strange looking building there is a worshiping body of believers known as Living Way. The name is taken from Hebrews 10:9 which indicates that Jesus inaugurated a new and living way into the sanctuary of God through the sacrifice He made on the cross. From the moment you enter these doors you will sense that something is different. A Risen Savior walks these halls and those who enter with open hearts are healed, delivered, strengthened, or restored. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Our mission as the Body of Christ here is to be obedient to the call of the great commission... to go into all the world and make disciples
Living Way United Methodist Church is about people. People who love, laugh, worship, study, cry, rejoice, struggle, win, lose, plan, dream, work, play, give, receive, walk, run, grow, fail, dance, eat, sleep, all under the banner of God's love. Church is Messiah Jesus' idea. He said that He would build His church upon the confession of His Lordship. Above all else, the people of Living Way Church believe in a Risen Savior who has given Holy Spirit, the promise of Heaven, as a free gift to humanity. Whomsoever receives this gift of grace becomes a new creature... a unique combination of a human who has within themselves the Christ. The Apostle Paul described it this way, "Christ in you... the hope of glory..." Glory, the manifestation of God's Kingdom. With this new gift we now have the power to overcome (if we will) the death that is within us from birth. The death brought about by sin that separates us from the Creator. We are talking Resurrection Life! The good news of Jesus is just too amazing to comprehend, and yet for over 2,000 years disciples of Jesus have testified of this truth within themselves. So Living Way is ABOUT JESUS the incarnation of God!
Living Way Church is about children... for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven. We all know we have a great deal to learn from the open heart of a child. Jesus told us that unless we were like them we would not enter Heaven. Children are our priority. We are a safe sanctuary church; which means that everyone involved with these young treasures has been thoroughly checked out. Background checks, two teachers per classroom, windows in every door are all ways to protect our children. We strive to raise them up in the Lord with excellent programming and curriculum. Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world... and so do we!! God's Word declares to us... "Train up a child in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it..." Proverbs 22:6
