Christ the King Church is the location for this year’s Ecumenical Prayer Service hosted by the Texas Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

Bishop Mike Rinehart will speak words of welcome. Our choirs will join the Gospel Choir of Holy Family Catholic Church. We encourage all members and friends to attend the service on Thursday evening and show our usual Lutheran and Christ the King hospitality. There will be a reception in the narthex after the service.
