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.

During Lent, we again join Lutheran World Relief’s Season of Hope appeal. Each week, we collect a different item that will be used to assemble Personal Care Kits that give people around the world tools to stay healthy in life’s most challenging situations.
Our Sunday collection schedule is below, but we will gratefully receive items every Sunday, especially towels.
When emergencies like natural disasters or conflict arise, many families must flee their homes, leaving their belongings behind. When they arrive in a refugee camp or other place of safety, they are scared, vulnerable and dirty from the travel. The simple items included in a Personal Care Kit allow them to wash away the dirt and sweat, with the fresh sent of soap and the softness of a towel as reminder of someone’s care and concern for them in their plight.
Our goal is to assemble 100 LWR Care Kits during Lent. Drop items off in the narthex or church office. Here’s our collection schedule:
- April 14: Bars of Soap (each kit includes 2 bars of soap)
Everyone is invited to join the Luther League in assembling our Personal Care Kits after the Good Friday service on April 19.

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
We cannot help but count time in a line.
We are born, go through the milestones of life, and hopefully one day we will die after a full and rich life. We measure the journey of life, how things went, along the timeline, how straight, how bumpy, how successful, how long. Continue reading
Based on Luke 13: 1-9
It is a familiar behavior to ask who was at fault for a terrible event. It is important for the social order that we have legal and fair processes to ensure responsibility as best as possible. It is also a familiar behavior to ask whose fault it was when stuff just happens, or when one tries to avoid personal accountability. And often people even try to blame God. Continue reading

Join us in reflecting on and experiencing the psalms for Lent at Lenten Vespers.
- March 27 – Body (Psalm 63)
- April 3 – Joy (Psalm 32)
- April 10 – Harvest (Psalm 126)
After worship, there will be two opportunities to go deeper in the reflective process: caring conversation with healing blessing and anointing will be offered in the nave (two stations); a 45 minute group conversation about the psalm and presentation for each week will take place in the parlor on the second floor.
Throughout Lent we offer Healing Blessing and Anointing for all who desire during Sunday morning worship and after Wednesday evening Vespers. Stations for healing prayers will be available in the back of the nave after communion on Sunday mornings and in the northeast section on Wednesday evenings.
