Christ the King Lutheran Church gathers regularly to worship the Triune God by hearing God’s word as revealed in the scriptures and receiving God’s love and forgiveness through the washing of baptism and the meal of communion. Sunday, the first day of the week, is the primary and weekly assembly of our congregation, beginning at sundown on Saturday. The nursery is always available.
The congregation also gathers for festival worship at the annual Christian observances of Christmas; the Three Days comprising Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Day; the festivals of Epiphany and Ascension, Ash Wednesday, and other observances as announced.
The practice of daily prayer is supported in our congregation by weekday Morning Prayer at 8:15 a.m. in the narthex and services of Evening Prayer on the Wednesdays of Lent each year. The services of worship of the Bach Society Houston (Bach Vespers at www.bachsocietyhouston.org) also enhance our congregation’s worship offerings.
Each weekday morning at 8:15 am, a small group of people gathers in the third floor visitors room for a short service of readings and prayers. Prayers are offered for members, family and friends in need. This informal service is led by volunteers. All are invited.
Saturday evenings at 6:00 p.m., a meditative worship service in the tradition of the Taize community is offered. Simple, repetitive songs taken from the Taize community replace traditional hymns, and silence after the preaching allows worshipers to spend time in prayer.
Sunday Morning Eucharist at 8:30
At 8:30 a.m. Sunday morning, people gather for worship. The music for the service is chosen from various settings available in Evangelical Lutheran Worship. We sing accompanied by the organ, piano, or a variety of other instruments. The Chorus sings a wide range of music, from classical to contemporary to folk to global song.
Sunday Morning Eucharist at 10:50
The worship service at 10:50 a.m. on Sunday mornings uses musical settings from Evangelical Lutheran Worship. The church choir, at times accompanied by an ensemble, offers classical selections.
