It’s Parade Time! Saturday, June 22

Join us in sharing God’s love at the 2019 Pride Festival & Parade!
A CTK group joined a larger group of Lutherans last year to share the message of God’s love during the Pride Houston festivities, and from all accounts, it was a blast! This year’s Pride festival and parade are on Saturday, June 22.

We are looking for folks to join the parade group in the evening, as well as greeters for the booth during the festival from noon-6:00 p.m. (a great chance to share God’s love person to person). The festival takes place around City Hall, starting at noon, and the parade route is about 20 blocks/1 mile downtown. Please contact Rachel Zoch for more info and links to sign up for the booth and/or parade.
