Enjoy this monthly community outreach worship again with The Healers as our house band, playing the Blues with authority and authenticity. Different beers will be available again. AND we’ll enjoy a panel discussion on the theme: “A Lively Chat About Death and Dying.” How’s that for a party starter? Actually, we’ll very much enjoy a unique conversation with theological, medical, and legal perspectives about death, its meaning, how best to prepare and live instead of waiting and denying. It all informs an “abundant life” now. AND…we look forward to B,B,&RN on February 28 when “Free Wheels Houston celebrates its volunteers and adds BBQ burgers to the evening!
Sundays, January 12, 19, 26, and February 2 at 12:30 p.m.
Have you ever wondered what is distinctively (or peculiarly) Lutheran about Christ the King Church? Do you want a refresher and/or an “update”? Are you from a different tradition and are mostly new to how and why we Lutherans worship and think the way we do? And why we here at CTK are “sorta different” from even other Lutheran congregations? For that matter, how are we like the rest of Christianity? Why keep any distinctive behaviors and doctrines? Continue reading
We welcome Sergio Rodriguez as our Pastoral Intern here at Christ the King for the calendar year of 2020. Sergio is a student at Wartburg Theological Seminary. His ministry with us, as well as his taking Clinical Pastoral Education, will complete his academic requirements for a Master of Divinity degree and advance his candidacy for ordained ministry in the ELCA. He comes to us having served two congregations as a licensed lay minister, and, among many other duties, will help us reinvigorate campus ministry with Rice University. We are excited to welcome Sergio and his two cats!
Music and readings for Advent focus our hearts on expectant anticipation. Come and enjoy 30 minute meditations with music from the organ and scripture reading on December 13 and 20 at 12:15 p.m.-12:45 p.m. in the nave.
Saturday, December 21, 6:00 p.m.
This contemplative worship offers time for remembering, sharing our hurting places with God, and preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ.
Join others for whom the Christmas season is bittersweet to hear scripture, offer prayers for healing and wholeness, and to sing hymns that acknowledge God’s presence with those who mourn and grieve, with those who suffer, and with those who struggle. God is the light shining in our darkness.
We encourage you to make friends, family members, neighbors, colleagues aware of this time of prayer and reflection meant to address the death of loved ones and other significant losses in life. Healing Blessing with Laying on of Hands, and Holy Communion are part of the service.
All are welcome! The service will be followed by a brief time for light refreshments and fellowship.
