Welcome to Christ the King Church!
We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod. We are committed to the mission of proclaiming to the world the message of God’s reconciling work revealed in Jesus Christ and proceeding in the Spirit of God.
Our faith calls us to be an inclusive community welcoming people of all cultures, races, sexual orientations, and gender identities.

Based on Luke 6:20-31
Robert Frost wrote that “Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can’t, and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it.”
As true as this is, on this day, All Saints Sunday, we are more mindful than usual that the saints triumphant who have so much to say are indeed saying it. In fact, they are singing it. They are singing the promises fulfilled of the God who blesses the hungry, the grieving and the abused. Can you hear the singing of the saints? Can you feel the weight of their love for God and you?

Veterans Day is November 11.
November 1-11 we pray, thank, and care for military service members and veterans. Their “journey home” is not complete until we whom they’ve served have our ears and hearts fully open and welcoming and supportive. Twenty-Two Service Member and veteran suicides a day show we’re not there yet.
On weekdays from November 1-8, at 8:30 a.m., a “prayer moment” will be held outside our nave at the corner of Rice and Greenbriar. At the conclusion each day, we’ll hang 22 symbolic dog tags on a special tree.
At 7:00 p.m. November 11, a Veterans Day Service of Thanksgiving and Intercession will be held in the nave, open to the wider community.
Gather in the courtyard after both services and write letters. Sample letters and writing materials will be provided.
There is enough … More than enough
