We are a Lighthouse Congregation Lighthouse Congregations are local churches in the Rio Texas Annual Conference that are particularly equipped to welcome anyone whose church has closed or disaffiliated. These United Methodist faith communities are a resting place, with people who will offer care while providing a haven of peace and grace.
Our Leadership Board, met on September 20, 2023 and approved the following: Our congregation, Leander United Methodist Church , has decided to become a Lighthouse Congregation of The Rio Texas Conference of The United Methodist Church. In doing so, we not only commit to remaining a part of The United Methodist Church but also to serving those who have lost their church homes through disaffiliation or closure. We will partner in this work by providing a welcoming place, offering ministry opportunities, helping organize remnant groups in our community, and assisting individuals and groups in discerning their next steps as they find a new church home.
