On August 9, 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m., families with babies and toddlers are invited for a get-together to play, get to know each other, and talk about “how are we going to pass on our faith to our children?” The baby and toddler stages are perfect for establishing faith related traditions for home and family life. Pastor Liebster and the Sunday School teachers of the toddler class will introduce the options for faith formation within the setting of Christ the King Church. All members and friends with babies and friends are welcome at the home of Amy and Peter Scaff. Please contact Pastor Liebster for details or to request the doodle link to sign up.
On Thursday evening, August 7 in the parish hall from 7:00-9:00 p.m. our church, who uses Godly Play, will host an extremely informal get-together of people who have heard of Godly Play and think it sounds interesting but want to learn more, as well as people who have volunteered to be a Godly Play teacher but are a little scared, and of Godly Play teachers who just love to hear a story and talk about Godly Play. Maybe one of these descriptions sounds like you! We gather over wine and cheese and other munchies, so people with a common interest in Godly Play can get to know one another and learn to feel safe with these stories. This is an event to which you can invite your friends, your co-teachers, someone who you think would be a great teacher…you name it ─ all are welcome.

Thousands of children in Greater Houston will begin the 2014-2015 school year without the basic supplies they need to succeed in school. However, you can help! The Christian Community Service Center’s (CCSC) Back to School Program works to ensure that 6,500 underprivileged students in our community return to school well-prepared for academic success. You can help ensure that these students return to school well-prepared to learn in the fall by making a $45.00 donation to the Christian Community Service Center (CCSC) Back to School Program. Your donation provides one student with a new school uniform/shoes and a grade-level appropriate package of new school supplies. Please sponsor one or more students by submitting a check made out to Christ the King Church and earmarked “CCSC Back to School Project” in the offering on Sundays now though August or by donating online at www.ccschouston.com.
Please contact Cindy Murphy for more information about how you can help with this important program.
Daily Bible readings and prayers are now available online.
The link “Daily Reading and Prayer” is located on the left side under Quick Links. The same link is available through the face book page.
This resource is the same as the insert in the Sunday worship folders called “Taking Faith Home” from Vibrant Faith. It was developed at Augsburg Youth and Family Institute and is excellent. The readings lead the reader from the theme of one Sunday’s readings to the next. A weekly prayer and a blessing is provided, and on the second page rubrics for conversation topics, devotions, service ideas and rituals can be found.
