Rev. Laura Brewster's first Sunday at NW Hills UMC is July 3rd
Rev. Laura Brewster was born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley. After graduating from PSJA High School, Laura moved to Austin and attended U.T. where she earned a Bachelor of Journalism in 1983. Laura spent the next few years working in the field of TV news. Stops in her journey included KAUZ-6 in Wichita Falls, KFDA-10 in Amarillo, KVOA-4 in Tucson, and KOTV-6 in Tulsa. Along the way Laura felt God using her to highlight important issues such as poverty and racism.
Laura eventually felt God calling her to shift gears and start sharing the Good News instead of reporting bad news. She earned a Master of Divinity (cum laude) from Perkins School of Theology, SMU in December 1995 and has been serving local churches ever since. Laura is married to Scott Clear. Together they have a beautiful daughter, Rachel, who is a student at U.T.

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We know it's a little confusing so let's just stick with "MOPS."
We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world. MOPS is a time for us moms to enjoy some food, listen to speakers about flourishing in life, have small group time with other moms and crafts for even those of us not crafty!
Tuesdays 7:00-9:00pm Room 111
