Christ the King has two weekly services:
Holy Eucharist (spoken liturgy):
8:00 am on Sunday morning
10:30 am on Sunday morning
Christ the King is a pastoral size parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Texas. We are a compassionate, generous, outreach-oriented congregation. We have approximately 70 families on the active roll and the average Sunday attendance is between 90 and 100 people.
Although now situated and established on the west side of Lake Houston in the northeast area of Harris County known as Atascocita, Christ the King was started in October 1977 on the east side of Lake Houston, to serve Episcopalians in the communities of Crosby and Huffman.
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs." Matthew 19:14.
At Christ the King, our children are a gift from God. We put them at the center of our worship, with children’s sermons and children’s chapel. A child helps present the food collection, which echoes the time when a child gave the fish and loaves for the feeding of the 5,000 (John6:9). At our Bible Studies, our children play special roles. They learn a Bible lesson, and then they get the chance to share with the adults what they have learned. The kids love to read the Psalms in our closing prayers. In these examples and more, we are reminded that children can help us to see God as we help our children to see God.
The next two months are important times to deepen our children’s faith. Consider these opportunities:
Children’s Communion Class: May 21st, May 28th, and June 4th from 9:15 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
This class, led by Father David, teaches children the basics about Holy Communion. Children will learn why this is so important and how to receive the Sacrament or a blessing. All children are welcome to participate in this course. Some children will be preparing to receive for the first time, traditionally called First Communion. Children may take this class simply to learn more, as a refresher, or if they are ready to receive. Parents are encouraged to attend.
Vacation Bible School: June 5th through June 8th in the evenings
There is an informational meeting on May 7th from 9:15 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. More information is coming soon!
Youth Group Mission Trip to Canyon Lake, Texas: June 11th through June 14th
This is our 4th year of going on a Mission Trip to the Texas Hill Country.
Our youth will help rebuild a portion of homes for families in need. This is an excellent opportunity for our children, open to 6th through 12th graders (based on the grade they are entering). Discounts are available for siblings and /or friends your children may wish to invite. Please contact our Youth Minister, Tracey Bulau, for details: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yours in Christ,
Father David Nelson
