You’ll want to “keep up with the Lutherans” by getting your very own “God’s Work. Our Hands” t-shirt personalized with Christ the King Lutheran Church on the back to celebrate “God’s Work. Our Hands” Sunday on September 13. We will be joining thousands of other Lutheran Christians that weekend to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America—one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. On that Saturday, September 12, we will don our beautiful yellow
t-shirts and “serve and love our neighbor” by volunteering at the Houston Food Bank.
T-shirts cost $10.00. You may order your t-shirts now by emailing Ben Remmert to let us know what sizes you need (child, youth or adult).
And mark your calendars now to join us at the Houston Food Bank on September 12, 8:00 a.m. to noon. Volunteers from age 8 to 98 are welcome to join us. For information on this ministry opportunity email Justin and Yuricel.
Join us on Saturdays at 1:00 p.m. in the basement classroom for Hatha yoga. The cost is $7.00 per class. Bring a towel or mat and water.
Hatha yoga refers to a sequence of physical exercises (postures) designed to align your skin, muscles, and bones. Yoga’s combined focus on mindfulness, breathing and physical movements brings health benefits with regular participation. Yoga participants report better sleep, increased energy levels and muscle tone, relief from muscle pain and stiffness, improved circulation and overall better general health. The breathing aspect of yoga can benefit heart rate and blood pressure.
On the first and second Saturdays of the month at 6:00 p.m. the Taizé services emphasize the healing power of the good news in Jesus Christ. The Prayer around the Cross points to the suffering of the world and gives thanks to God for hearing the cries of the people. A large wooden cross on the floor of the nave invites worshipers for prayer and meditation. The Prayer for Healing focuses on the baptismal life in light of Christ’s resurrection. At this service a healing blessing with laying on of hands and anointing is offered. The first two Saturdays in August are August 1 (Cross) and August 8(Healing Blessing).

In addition, make an evacuation plan, identify an out of state emergency contact for family and friends, identify the safest place in the home to “shelter in place”, keep vehicle fuel tanks full, and have a supply of cash.
