Rev. Dr. Clifton Stringer joined First UMC Lockhart as Senior Pastor in July 2020, and we are delighted to receive him into our church family.

Both as an academic and as a pastor, Clifton is passionate about topics like the existence of God, the doctrine of the Trinity, the incarnation and work of Christ, the relationship between soul and body, and contemplative prayer.

He is an ordained Elder in the Rio Texas Conference, and has previously served United Methodist churches in Austin and Lakehills, TX. He holds a Ph.D. in Theology from Boston College and a M.Div. from Duke, and before all that earned a BA in English at UT Austin. When he’s not working he enjoys spending time with his wife, reading with the kids and driving them where they need to be, reading poetry, playing guitar, going for walks, and having good conversations with friends.

Pickleball
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Beginning in January a Pickleball court was added in our Family Life Center.

Pickleball is a cross between badminton, tennis and ping-pong. It is played on a Badminton-sized court 20 feet X 44 Feet with wooden or composite paddles, a wiffle ball and a net that is lowered to 34 inches. Players volley the ball back and forth to try to score on the opposition. It was designed to be easy to learn for people of all ages and athletic abilities.

All are welcome to come check out and join in the fun on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.
