The faith leaders of four congregations surrounding Rice University went on a “pilgrimage of lament” to the Memorial for Peace and Justice (aka: the Lynching Memorial). In a panel style format they will share about the impact the memorial had for their faith.

Change up your weekday dinner routine and have a home cooked dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 6:40 p.m. Meet and make friends, and just have a good ol’ time! Before and after dinner there are many options to pick classes, join conversation/discussion groups, or make music. It’s not too late to join our infant and toddler music classes. Contact Beverly. 
We will be offering three new classes beginning on Wednesday, October 17.

New Wednesday Classes Starting Oct. 17

Lutheran Basics
Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m. Starting October 17

Are you interested in “becoming” a Lutheran for the first time? Do you desire to “re=become” a Lutheran? Do you just want to re-charge your Lutheran batteries…or even learn something new about the Lutheran Christian disposition? Then this class is for YOU! Starting October 17, 6:30 p.m., we’ll meet for five Wednesdays (October 17, 24, November 7, 14, 28) with these five corresponding topics: 1) The Cross, Lutheranism’s Theological Center; 2) Lutheran Worship, Singing and Doing the Drama of Christ; 3) The Living Word, Lutheranism and the Bible; 4) Treasures for Teaching, Lutheranism’s Doctrinal Guardrails; 5) Vocation and Neighbor; Lutheranism’s Liberation to Love.
The class will be taught by Pastor Duane and Deacon Rick Erickson. It is open indeed to all who are interested, including those exploring possible membership with Christ the King Church. Our non-required “textbook” will be the long-lived outstanding outline by Daniel Erlander (but let us know if you want a copy). The class will meet in the basement music suite. Questions? Contact Pastor Duane.

Raising Children to Thrive as Adults: New Class for Parents
Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m.-7:20 p.m. Starting October 17

Each generation of parents raises their children in the cultural climate of their time. The current climate combines the highest expectations for a successful life with the highest fears for safety and wellbeing. To help navigate this stressful journey Christ the King parents with children and youth of all ages are bonding together. A new reading group will study Julie Lythcott Haims’ book How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kids for Success. The author explores how current parenting is not necessarily producing fully functioning, independent young adults. She offers analysis and ideas for building self-sufficiency in our kids. The book is relevant to parents of toddlers as well as twenty-somethings. The conversations will be led by Lucky Sahualla with an eye to practical application for each week between the meetings.
