A Musical Evening with Bishop Mike Rinehart 

An evening of beautiful music, superb appetisers and fine wine await all those who attend this sociable. It all begins at 6:30pm on November 5, 2016, in the beautiful Carlton Woods home of Al & Caryl Reese in The Woodlands, TX. Attendees will wine and dine on hors d’oeuvres by acclaimed caterer Becky Havill and will be treated to a piano concert by the talented Bishop Mike Rinehart. Bishop Rinehart holds a Bachelor of Music in organ performance from Valparaiso University in Indiana and has delighted many Lutherhill Gala guests over the years as the featured pianist. A night of excellent music and celebration is promised for all!

Cost: $100/per person
Hosted By: Caryl & Al Reese, Becky Havill

Open Taps & Pub Snacks

Join Jen & Matt Kindsvatter for a lively afternoon of beer and grub at Texas’ oldest craft brewery, St. Arnold’s. The toughest part of your afternoon will be deciding which tap is right for you—is it Amber Ale, 5 O’clock Pils or the Art Car IPA? Or maybe it’s the famous St. Arnold’s  Root Beer or seasonal Winter Stout that is more your speed. Whichever way you go, they all go great with excellent company and spirited games of trivia. Wet your whistle with us on December 11th from 3 to 5pm!

Cost: $35/per person
Hosted By: Rev. Jen Kindsvatter & Matt Kindsvatter, Executive Director

Uncork the Flavor at the Carby Chapel

Join us for an affair you won’t soon forget! The Piland and Adams families are hosting a wine dinner on February 11, 2017, at 5:30pm and there is a spot at the table saved for you. The evening will start with appetizers and wine tastings from gold-medal winning Messina Hof Winery—pick your favorite and maybe even grab a bottle to take home and enjoy later. Then, savor some of Messina Hof’s best wines with a catered dinner of delicious roast beef or delectable grilled chicken along with all the satisfying sides. Cap the night off with a homemade dessert and relaxing on the deck of the Carby Chapel. Will it be the view, the wine, the scrumptious meal or the company of Lutherhill friends? We are sure it will be hard to choose what part of the night is your favorite.

Cost: $75/per person
