We Need your Help Putting Together Godly Play Stories

June 13 & June 20
Sundays at 10-10:45 a.m. in the parish hall

No Godly Play or craft experience required.
Whether you are young at heart or wise in years, or somewhere in between, we need your help putting together miniature Godly Play stories for children and their families at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital. Everyone is welcome!
All the supplies to create the mini stories will be provided. These stories will be shared by chaplains trained in Godly Play and given to patients and families as a way of caring for them while they are in the hospital. These parables are a beautiful way to create space for meaning-making, wonder, and play in the hospital setting. Our goal is to create 100 mini parable boxes in June together!
*No Godly Play or craft experience required. There will be art supplies available for small children to join in the fun as well. A great way to earn service hours.
We hope to see you there!

Enjoy a wide variety of entertainment by members with acts varying from the sublime to …well, you make the call. You only need to tune in and provide your own champagne for a celebratory toast. Surprise guests from past and present will greet us. All this is brought together by Rachel McWhirter- Video Magician Extraordinaire, Beverly Davis- Executive Producer, and many gifted (and brave) members of our beloved congregation, “75 and Faithfully Forward.” Click below to enjoy the celebration.

Fall Outing in Nature: Guided Tour of the Houston Botanic Garden

Saturday, November 7, 1:00 p.m.
Fall Outing in Nature: Guided Tour of the Houston Botanic Garden
The CTK Creation Care Team has organized an outing to the recently-opened Houston Botanic Garden. Enjoy a private one-hour guided tour, followed by practice of the Franciscan spiritual discipline Prayer with Eyes Wide Open. An admission fee is required to enter the garden, and the tour maintains strict social-distancing, such that this opportunity is for a very small group.   Date/time not work for you?  The team is considering scheduling additional outings to the garden. If you’d like to join us, contact Lisa Brenskelle to sign up. Due to the limited group size, you must sign up in advance to participate.
