Congregational Care

Parishes

Our desire is to help our church family know and care for each other, and to “rejoice with those who rejoice, and mourn with those who mourn” (Romans 12:15). 

Parishes are communities of care at Christ the King which provide the opportunity for members who live in the same area of Houston to care for one another and serve our city as the body of Christ. Every member and regular attender of Christ the King belongs to a Parish based on where they live and is assigned a Shepherding Elder. (See list below)  Shepherding Elders are committed to praying for members in their Parish and providing spiritual care, as well as working with the Deacons to assist with tangible needs. 

A group of church members serve as Parish Meal Coordinators and each Parish has a dedicated Meal Coordinator who schedules meal calendars or other care assistance for Parish members who have experienced a birth, death, surgery, or who have a particular need that their Parish can come together to support.  

Although there are many ways our Christ the King family receives care in our church, Parishes offer intentional and direct opportunities for people in the church to care for one another and for our city. If you would like to learn more about Parishes at Christ the King, please contact Catherine Duffin.

Elders & Deacons

Christ the King functions under the presbyterian form of church government. The congregation elects elders and deacons to serve as the officers of the church.

Our officers provide tangible help to members and regular attenders in times of need. They come alongside people to assist with needs like encouragement and prayer, budgeting and financial coaching, helping widows and elderly, financial relief and other ministries of mercy and help.
