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.

On Sundays in the summer members and friends have the opportunity to present and discuss any work of interest at the Sunday Forum hour 9:45-10:45 a.m. – this may be a book (the “classic” book review), or a project you are working on, art that you create, etc.
August 19: Linda Schoene, Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life, by Richard Rohr
This week all children will spend their time working on the Lego Luther Rose and other projects, and will finish with a feast. Anyone who is curious about the Godly Play feast is welcome to join us at 9:45 a.m. in room 212. Our goal is still to finish one row each week in the giant Lego Luther Rose.
Stop by the Crafts Workshop!
A local church was just about to begin a Godly Play program when Harvey totally destroyed their building and all their Godly Play items. They are determined to begin in the fall in their temporary quarters. We are helping to make lesson materials for them, so all who can help paint items, cut felt, nail and glue wood, etc. are invited to stop by our “shop” in room 212 at 9:45 on Sundays. It would be helpful to contact Marie Monroe at to schedule the larger projects.
CTK’s Love Your Neighbor group will continue during the summer with a more leisurely pace. We meet on Wednesdays, at 6:00 p.m. around food and fellowship. Bring food to share, as well as a favorite beverage (Yes, wine works).
The group will continue to read and discuss work dedicated to reducing racism. We’re reading a past presidential address of a theological scholarly society, “Confessions of a White Catholic Racist Theologian”. Copies are available from Pastor Duane or Rebecca.
Beginning Wednesday, June 20, we will read The Definitive History of Racist Ideas, by Ibram X. Kendi. Contact Rebecca to find this week’s location and if you’ve any questions.
Speaking of “Loving One’s Neighbor”…
