CCSC Back-to-School Program

back to schoolThousands 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 Reading and Prayer

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.
