Welcome to Christ the King Church!
We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod. We are committed to the mission of proclaiming to the world the message of God’s reconciling work revealed in Jesus Christ and proceeding in the Spirit of God.
Our faith calls us to be an inclusive community welcoming people of all cultures, races, sexual orientations, and gender identities.
Learn how to become a member.
Each year the members of our congregation generously donate their time and talent to the mission of living our faith. As we give thanks on this 69th anniversary of our congregation, it is time again to dedicate our individual time and talent to fulfilling our congregation’s prayer: “Build Us Up, Send Us Forth.”
Back by popular demand, we are conducting the Time & Talent Survey for 2015 electronically.The Time Talent Book describes all the various opportunities available, for you to use in completing the survey.
Complete the survey.
If you prefer to complete the survey on paper, both the booklets and response forms will be available on the table in the Narthex. Feel free to take one. Thank you for your faithful service to our congregation, our community and the world.

Dinner at Christ the King Church
Grandma comes to the parish hall – and you don’t even have to drive “over the river and through the woods”– for Thanksgiving Dinner! Paul and Marie Monroe have graciously volunteered to prepare turkey & dressing for a family-style Thanksgiving Day dinner in the parish hall. Any students who aren’t going home, young adults without plans, and all adults without family in town are invited to join them. If you would like, you may bring a covered dish to share (salad, vegetable, bread, dessert, fancy drinks, etc.). For an accurate count, please notify Beverly Davis. However, if you don’t sign up, you are still welcome: everyone will eat their fill and we’ll have baskets of food left over. Thanksgiving dinner will begin around 11:30 a.m. and run until the turkey tryptophan kicks in.
November 23: Festival Sunday – Join us in the courtyard for refreshments and the Justice Advocacy Fair at which members will have the opportunity to advocate on a variety of justice topics, and to sign up to advocate electronically through the ELCA.
November 30: Advent Wreath Workshop in the parish hall.
