Church News & Events

Volunteer at the Houston Food Bank July 11

houston food bankAt the Houston Food Bank on Saturday, May 9, thirteen volunteers from Christ the King Lutheran Church assisted in making Backpack Buddy bags.

These bags include six meals and are discreetly distributed at school to children who otherwise may not have anything to eat over weekends. Our group participated in making 4,200 of these bags, which equal 25,200 meals for 4,200 children. All in all, it was a great time contributing to a great cause.

Our next volunteering outing will be Saturday, July 11 at 8:00 a.m. Sign up to volunteer with Yuricel Mondragon and Justin Schneewind.  If you want to meet and carpool from the Christ the King Church parking lot at 7:30 a.m., you must let Justin know.

Yoga on Saturdays

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.

The World in Need of Prayer – Healing Ministry at Taizé Services

taize-servicesOn 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 July are July 4 (Cross) and July 11 (Healing Blessing).
