  • Travis Cole Worship Leader

    Esther was born and raised in Sealy, TX by a family of farmers.  She graduated from Sealy High School and met and married Clarence Merritt, a Houston Fire Fighter.  They were married for 46 ½ years, had 2 beautiful daughters who added 2 sons-in-law, 4 beautiful granddaughters and 2 lovable great grandsons.  The Merritt family moved back to Sealy after Clarence retired from the fire department in the mid-1970’s.  Although he passed away in 2005 from cancer, Esther would later say, “The Lord gave Clarence the ultimate healing and took him home.”

                          Esther has been a member of our congregation for more than 35 years.  She served as church secretary with a previous minister and furthered her education by obtaining coursework to better-serve the church during that time.  Years later, we were able to talk her into coming out of retirement as a layperson!  She maintains the membership directory and database and assists in keeping the church informed on social media and through the weekly bulletin.  She also assists with the Hospitality Team, preparing meals as needed throughout the year to bless others.
