On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, January 21, Christ the King Church members and friends will once again join the MLK Grande Parade. The parade starts at the corner of Elgin and San Jacinto at 10:00 a.m., but all groups gather for registration by 9:00 a.m. at the SE corner of Holman and San Jacinto. The theme of the parade is “It takes a Village.” We will have a banner, a convertible, and however many would like to walk the route of 1.5 miles with individual signs provided (or you can make your own). Please contact Beverly if you are interested in joining the parade walkers, representing Christ the King Church’s commitment to the Gospel-Faith-Justice-Welcome. Anyone who would like to participate but can not walk the route, please contact Beverly. We need an accurate count of participants by January 14 so to ensure enough signs for all.

Make church your place for Friday dinner together with other families. Bring the kids, a bottle of wine or beer to share and let’s “crash together” after the work week. We will eat, enjoy fellowship, and play. We close with a good night story and prayer at 7:00 p.m.
Invited are all young families with babies, toddlers, and Kindergarten children with their older siblings. Dinner, water and lemonade will be provided. Family Fridays take place monthly (mostly on the first Friday.)

Christ the King Church comes together every week of the school year for Wednesdays@Church or W@C. All activities are centered around dinner together. There is music for children and parents, singing for children, classes and music for adults. With dinner at the center there is ample time to make and meet friends.
The youth group of Christ the King Church, Luther League, invites everyone to a fancy night out at church! Come together for a warm luau during the cold month of February with beach sunset scenery and a luau competition. Chef Nathaniel Winston will again pull out all the stops and create a four course meal. This fundraiser supports the 2019 summer trip to Germany for which 20 youth have signed up. Seating is available for individuals, pairs, and small and large groups. Individual tickets are $50, $90 for two. A table is $300 (seven people). Free childcare is available.
