It’s back. After the summer break, Blues, Brews, and Good News returns to its every fourth Friday slot with great music by The Healers and provocative topical discussions. Oh, and outstanding craft beer choices!

Join us for the Blessing of the Animals service in the courtyard of Christ the King Church on Saturday, October 5 at 9:30 a.m.
The service, which was first offered by Christ the King Church in 1995, lasts about 45 minutes. In the past it has drawn pet owners both from the congregation and from the community at large. A diversity of pets have been presented, including ferrets, crabs, and gold fish, as well as the more typical cats and dogs. Pet treats and human snacks will be available following the service.

Pastor Larson and Fatih Ozcan of Houston’s Blue Mosque will give an orientation to the Scriptural Reasoning program. Interested participants will register for the monthly program. Scriptural reasoning was developed at Cambridge University, UK, and has gone global as a wonderful and practical way of sharing our scriptures in small groups. In a group no larger than 14, half Christian and half-Muslim, we read similar texts from the Bible and the Qur’an side by side and share what they mean to us. Light food and good fellowship accent the experience of growing together as Abrahamic cousins in faith and friendship. You can register for the monthly small group programs—hosted in homes or elsewhere—after the orientation on September 25.
All are invited to Friday Morning Bible Study. Join us for a cup of coffee at 10:00 a.m. in the council room Bible Study and prayer begin at 10:30, and we finish approximately 11:40 a.m.
We read the texts assigned for the Sunday liturgy and prepare ourselves for the encounter with the living Lord who promises to be with us in word and sacrament. No need to pre-register, simply join us!
