Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m.-7:20 p.m. Starting October 17, 2018
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 well being. 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.
Voter registration will be offered after Sunday morning services.
September 23:Voter Registration and Our Faith, Our Voice, Our Choice
Volunteer Deputy Voter Registrar Veronica Nasser of Bellaire, TX, will describe the work of voter registrars, how they organize to go out into the community to register voters and the challenges in doing so. She will speak from her eight years of experience and her outreach in explaining how voting translates into what happens in our communities. Veronica Nasser is a native Houstonian and the owner of Blue Industrial Partners, LLC, natural gas sector company. She is also the Harris County Democratic Party Precinct Chair for Precinct 0182.

Activities and Schedules
We’re back with Friday Morning Study on September 7 at 10:30 a.m. It is an important time to gather for personal care, prayer, and study. Usually we take a close look at the coming Sunday lessons, under the leadership of Pastor Larson or Pastor Liebster. Sometimes we might change the format. The Spirit is lively with us! There is always great, and sometimes provocative conversation; all about how the Lord stimulates us into deeper faith and reasoned, respectful growth in understanding. The sumptuous food is always wonderful, too. We meet again in the narthex (for the time being). Everyone welcome!
Anyone interested in some encouragement and input on writing projects is invited to join us for informal writing sessions on first and third Friday afternoons 1:00-3:00 p.m. beginning September 7. If you’re interested in writing your memoirs this will provide you with some assistance in beginning. No previous writing experience required. Contact Anna Fay Williams, for more information.
