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.

We invite children and youth to come out in great numbers and make music together, Saturdays at 10 a.m.! All ages and levels of singing ability are welcome. Children and youth will sing together with the adults on these days. The pieces involve small and big parts, so everyone will be included. Mark your calendars and come make music to the glory of God!
Cantor Rick Erickson and Music Associate Mary Joy Silmaro lead the rehearsals with music, movement and reading. Snacks and special activities such as pumpkin carving and Christmas pageant make these weekends fun events for everyone.
We need volunteers for the pumpkin activity on October 26. Please RSVP for both music and pumpkins to Mary Joy Silmaro.
Blues, Brews, and Good News is totally happening every fourth Friday, October 25, 7:00 p.m., The Healers come back with their fab new Grammy winning bass player and get us inspired for an Open Mic Night to explore what’s on our minds. And, as always, a couple of outstanding craft beer choices “curated by Karli”!
Future topics and schedule are: November 29 (Fifth Friday!), “Turkey Leftovers and the Meaning of ‘Family’ Today.” Come, tap your feet, explore challenging themes, drink some beer, pray and praise.
Our third annual Trunk or Treat experience will be on Wednesday, October 30, from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. This safe and fun activity is for the whole family. Children may be dressed in their Halloween costumes or not and go from table to table in the parish hall (many may be decorated) to go “trick or treating.” CTK members will host this event and provide the treats. Babies in strollers and grandparents are also welcome! We will end our Trunk or Treat festivities with a blessing service at 6:45 p.m. to bless the trick or treaters. Pizza will also be provided at that time. Volunteers and/or questions.
We hope to see you there!
The CTK Creation Care Team invites you to walk, bike, carpool, take the bus…to church! We will have bike route and bus information available after each worship service. Contact Lisa Brenskelle for more information.

Blue Mosque- Islamic Institute, 9301 West Bellfort Avenue
We encourage members and friends (neighbors, colleagues) to go and join our friends at the Blue Mosque on Tuesday night for Lutheran-Muslim Scriptural Reasoning. Let us grow together in our Abrahamic family relationship and common witness for peace in God’s world. All are invited, no prior registration necessary, a light meal will be provided.
Scriptural Reasoning, a program developed by inter-religious dialogue experts at Cambridge University, is a new project here at Christ the King Church in partnership with the Houston Blue Mosque/The Islamic Institute. We read parallel scripture texts from the Bible and the Qur’an, talk about our understandings of them, and, along the way, grow in mutual understanding and friendship.
