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.

Experience a Peaceful Healing During Contemplative Worship

Saturdays at 6:00 p.m.
submitted by CTK members Larry Foust and Christine Wagener

Christ the King Lutheran Church distinguishes itself in many ways, one of which is its commitment early every Saturday evening to an ecumenical form of worship created in the 1940’s by Roger Schütz in France after the occupation by Nazi Germany had ended. The Taize approach to worship is soft, quiet, meditative, and peaceful. The music, albeit sung in many languages, emphasizes simple biblical phrases and is repeated in a soothing fashion. It is yoga, marathon running, blood pressure treatment, and anti-anxiety medication all rolled into a one hour shared worship service before your Saturday evening festivities begin. Come and experience it. Relax. Wrap yourself in its comfortable arms. Come and experience God’s Peace and healing in a new way.
