This is our Story: New Member Michael McGovern

Published July 6, 2021 by SMBC

Michael experienced a strong coming to faith over the last few months of 2020 and wanted to join a religious community with which he could continue his journey and growth in faith. He was looking for a church that had a serious commitment to the Gospel and a range of programs for outreach to the Houston community. Michael was incredibly impressed by the Sunday services he attended, and was taken aback by the welcoming nature of South Main members he was able to meet early on. Now, as he gets more involved with church activities and meet more of the congregation, Michael feels extremely fortunate to have found South Main Baptist Church and made the decision to join.

Michael is presently connected with the Young Professionals group for Sunday School, and plans to get involved with Mornings at MacGregor, MANNA, and MacGregor Elementary. He also attended his first South Main at Home gathering last month. Michael loves reading classic/epic poetry from Ancient Greek and Roman times and is working to learn Latin and Greek so he can read the works of Virgil, Homer, and Ovid in their original glory.

Welcome to the South Main family, Michael!

In response to your decision, we pledge ourselves to be the family of God for you in this place. We offer you our love, our care, our kinship, and our hopes. We hope to learn from you, give to you, and receive from you by God's grace.
