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.

All are invited to Friday Morning Bible Study. We gather after 10:00 a.m. for snacks and fellowship in the 2nd floor council room. Bible Study and prayer begin at 10:30, and we finish approximately 11:40 a.m.
Friday Morning Bible Study is an opportunity to enrich life in preparation for the Sunday assemblies. 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.

Luther on Vocation: Changing Diapers and Hauling Manure to the Glory of God
It’s finally ‘weizen season’, and what better way to enjoy it than with cold beer, brats, and a Luther-inspired table talk? We’ll gather at the parsonage (2342 Rice Blvd) on September 17 at 6:00 p.m. for dinner and discussion on the intersection of modern life and Lutheran theology. For questions, contact Meaghan Wheeler. Brats and beer provided, but sides and desserts are always welcome.
