As a follower of Christ, we are obligated to deepen our faith, continue in prayer and to grow spiritually each day. Custer Road UMC offers many programs and events to help you in your spiritual walk. If you have an urgent prayer need, please let us know.
Wesley Covenant Prayer Study
The Wesley Covenant Prayer has been used for services on the first Sunday of the year for over 200 years. John Wesley hoped that by praying this prayer, people would remember, renew and surrender themselves to God so that they would love God with all their heart, soul and mind as well as love their neighbor as themselves.
Renew your faith in the new year and join us for a FREE 4-week prayer study led by Rev. Jack Gibson and Tiffanny Hosey. Classes meet on Tuesday afternoons from 1-2:30 pm in Room B5 beginning Jan 3 thru Jan 24. Books will be provided for each participant and brown bag lunches are welcome.
Linda Van Horn left a lasting, loving legacy before her passing in 2020. Wherever she went, Linda always carried wooden crosses with her. When the Holy Spirit prompted, she would give 2 crosses to those she encountered with the simple message- take one for yourself to keep and take another to give to someone else. She would then pray with them and was known to many as “That Prayer Lady.” Linda’s generosity knew no limits and her faithful witness helped grow God’s kingdom each and every day. To carry on her legacy, Custer Road UMC is continuing her tradition. Please take a cross, or two, from the baskets in the Prayer Room. Let the Spirit move you and when prompted, give the cross out to those that you meet.
Custer Road UMC has a dedicated Prayer Room for those seeking a quiet place to pray and reflect on God’s word. The Prayer Room is located on the first floor, in the back hallway behind the Sanctuary. It is open Monday thru Thursday, 9am-4:30pm; on Friday, 9-noon, and on Sunday, 8:30am-noon.
Holy Communion is offered in the Prayer Room each Sunday from 9:30-9:45am and 10:45-11:00am except for the first Sunday of each month where Communion is given during all worship service times.
Volunteers from Custer Road UMC use their talents to crochet prayer shawls for those in need. Each shawl is beautifully handcrafted and as it is constructed, prayers of healing and blessing are said for the recipient.
Do you know someone who is going through a health crisis or dealing with chronic medical issues? Consider presenting them with a crocheted prayer shawl so that they can be “wrapped in prayer” and receive comfort and calm as they face difficult situations.

A time of silence, experience solitude. A time of reflection, leave renewed. A time of prayer, speak to God above. A time of contemplation, feel His love. A time to be in nature, your mind at ease. Hit pause on your life, and SIMPLY BE!
Simply Be is offered several times per year at Custer Road United Methodist Church. It is a special day with the objective of leaving the hustle & bustle of modern life behind and having quiet reflection with God. After a brief devotion, each participant will have time to connect with God as they meditate, walk the beautiful grounds and labyrinth, pray in the chapel or simply listen to the sounds of nature.
All events are FREE and take place at the Springhill Retreat Center in Richardson. Springhill consists of 50 wooded acres reminiscent of the Texas Hill Country, with a limestone-lined, spring-fed creek flowing through the woods and three large ponds surrounded by beautiful native trees and foliage. Located just minutes off Central Expressway and the President George Bush Turnpike, Springhill is easy to find, yet is a quiet haven perfect for spending time with God.
FOR 2023, SIMPLY BE WILL BE HELD FROM 9AM – 1PM FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, FRIDAY, MAY 19, AND FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27.
