Closed Hispanic congregation finds warm welcome at Houston church



“Everybody’s trying to really make each other feel comfortable and tolerate some of the natural cultural differences that we have,” Smith said.
Fifth Ward members handed out flyers to surrounding neighborhoods to announce the new Hispanic ministry.
“We’re hoping that this will be the start of something that will really help our church to grow,” Smith said.
The congregation has hired a Hispanic minister and plans to have more combined services as church leaders work to integrate the groups.
“Its great, that’s why I’m there,” said Carlos Moencada, former Lyons-Majestic member. “There’s no better place to be.”
