City Group Ministry

By participating in our City Group Ministry, you and your family will have opportunities to serve our neighborhood and our city in deeply significant ways on a regular basis.  Within our City Group Ministry, serving opportunities with a one year commitment include:

Mercy Steering Team

The Mercy Steering Team will serve as a liaison between Christ the King and our mercy partners, adopting them so that we can be aware of their needs.  We will meet regularly for prayer, mutual encouragement and training.

Medical Mercy Ministry

The Medical Mercy Ministry will serve our city by ministering to hospital patients and their families, people in our neighborhood, and health care professionals through encouragement, prayer, education, preventative healthcare clinics and Bible studies.

Neighborhood Ministry

This group will serve our immediate community by volunteering with our Spring Branch ministry partners:

Men of Christ the King

The Men of Christ the King serve our neighbors and the city by engaging in quarterly "handy man" projects.  This fall we will do a building project for our ministry partner, Agape Development Ministries, in Houston's third ward.
