With a milestone birthday, Bering found a way to celebrate and underwrite its ministries: a play! Playwright Fernando Dovalina has written Heaven Can’t Wait, a musical revue that will benefit Bering’s ministries. The play will be performed at Bering on Nov. 3, 2018, at 7:30 p.m.
Mr. Dovalina said, “Imagine if you arrived in Heaven and had to put on a show…” Without giving too much away, he promised that this would be fun and memorable.
Esther Houser, event chair, plans to pack the house with over 500 people that night. All proceeds from the ticket sales will go directly to fund Bering’s ministries: Bering Connect, Open Gate, Children and Family Ministries, Latinx outreach, Harvey recovery, immigration advocacy, and community support.
Pastor Diane McGehee speaks with great passion about Bering’s 170 year history as a German immigrant church that has stood and cared for Houston in times of great need: the Yellow Fever epidemic, the 1918 influenza pandemic, the homeless, those with HIV/AIDS, and homeless LGBTQ young adults and teens.
She also spoke of the great need now in Houston and Bering’s response: homeless young adults and their young families, outreach to the growing Latinx community in our midst – many of whom are LGBTQ and have no spiritual home, the immigrant community, foster and adoptive children and families, ongoing Harvey recovery, and issues facing the global United Methodist Church .
