Living Word Lutheran Church recently announced Lisa Jastram of Sugar Land, Texas has joined the staff as a contemporary worship leader. Jastram has performed in many Katy-area churches, libraries and schools with Oasis for Children, her educational entertainment venture. She comes to Living Word at an exciting time in the life of the church as they complete their Envision Project begun less than a year ago. The church has been installing new lighting, screens, projectors and systems upgrades to maximize possibilities for meaningful and exciting worship.
Sept. 25 will be the first Sunday for the congregation to experience the new amenities and it promises to be an exciting Sunday. One of Jastram’s goals is to make the service more intergenerational and family friendly. She also hopes to see more of the arts incorporated into worship including dance and visual arts.
Previously, Jastram has led the musical portion of worship at St. Martin’s Lutheran in Sugar Land, New Hope Lutheran in Missouri City and Grace UCC in Alief. Her background as a missionary child raised in Japan matches well with Living Word’s emphasis on global mission. An annual Global Mission Festival involving many of the area’s churches will be held from October 16 to 23 during which time the contemporary praise team will be performing on several occasions. The public is invited to join in on the Fun Run, a fund raiser for the Gallo Health Clinic in the Central African Republic, on Saturday, Oct. 15.
