League City Methodist’s “Mosaic” revs up

February 7, 2007

League City United Methodist Church continues to make strides in its outreach programs, combining new initiatives with the refining of existing programs. This past June, the church took possession of 22 acres at the corner of Brittany Bay Blvd. (now League City Parkway) and Calder Road, with future intentions to build a new church campus. While many of the church staff members are working towards the building of that campus, many others are concentrating on building from the inside.

Case in point: Mosaic, the contemporary worship service held each Sunday at 11:00 am. With a logo depicting a mosaic cross, the slogan “coming together piece by peace” reflects the priorities of a congregation not fully served by traditional services in other churches. “We are pleased to be able to offer both a strong traditional service side by side with a more contemporary service,” said LCUMC Senior Pastor Bill Jenkins. “League City Methodist indeed has something for everyone, and we invite everyone to find their place with us.”

Held in the church’s Family Life Center, Mosaic is led by LCUMC’s Associate Pastor Kay Alewine, and features the praise band “A Few Small Fish.” Having performed at local events, the band is well-liked and continually draws a crowd. The coordination of the service, which includes music, drama, visual aids and multi-media is handled by LCUMC members Dell Tamblyn and Brian Worrell. Both are integral parts of the Mosaic service, and take turns working during the services.

Developing the Mosaic services is described by Pastor Alewine as “wading deeper into the water of worship.” Full of enthusiasm, she maintains that moving towards more intensified worship is the next big goal, and “we’re just getting started!”

A member for two years, Brian Worrell and his family searched for a church before settling at League City Methodist. “Mosaic is who we are,” he says. “It’s okay to clap and get excited and praise God with music.” He’s also quick to point out that the service is made up of many individuals, all working hard to bring together a time of worship each Sunday for the people, often first time visitors, that line up outside the Family Life Center.

Religion - Dell Tamblyn pictureAs the Coordinator of Adult Ministries since 2001, Dell Tamblyn is a part of nearly everything at LCUMC, and Mosaic is very special to her. Known as one of the originators of the worship band, Tamblyn constantly looks for ways to make the service better. “My wish is that people will find a place with us where they can belong, and feel free to worship and joyfully serve the Lord in a comfortable atmosphere.”

The chorus of a popular Christian song sums up what Mosaic is all about: “Come as you are and surrender your heart, broken and beautiful...”

League City United Methodist Church is located at 1411 Main Street one block east of Interstate 45. For information on the church, call the offices at 281-332-1557 or visit the church website at, or the Mosaic website at to Section Links
