Outreach is Christ the King’s passion and is central to its identity. The Church is dedicated to helping others and not only do we participate as a church our individual internal organizations also support causes and funds specific to those areas.
Christ the King assisted in establishing the Churches United in Caring (CUIC), a coalition of churches in the Crosby-Huffman area organized to provide pantry relief to those in crisis need. Christ the King continues to support the organization with food pantry goods and an annual monetary contribution.
Christ the King was also a founding covenant church for Humble Area Assistance Ministries (HAAM), which was established to address the growing demand in the Humble, Atascocita, and Kingwood communities to help the needy with food, shelter, clothing, transportation, and other emergencies. Christ the King provides a congregation member to serve on the Board of Trustees and supporting the organization monetarily and through various annual drives.
Christ the King also supports the Lord of the Streets Episcopal Church (LOTS), which ministers to the homeless in downtown Houston. Our commitment includes sponsoring a table at the annual spring luncheon benefitting the Lord of the Streets, periodically serving breakfast to the homeless following services at Lord of the Streets on Sunday mornings, and conducting drives to meet the various needs of the mission, such as clothing, coats, toiletries, and toys.
Since 2011, Christ the King has had an outreach called Breakfast with Santa. This free outreach to the community has grown over the years and now serves well over 500 people each year. Each family receives a picture with Santa along with breakfast and other activities.
Each year the process seems to get better and the number of people served larger. Local food establishments such as Chick-fil-A, Best Donuts and Panera Bread donate breakfast food items. Parishioners donate drinks and other necessities to run the program, and volunteer to run the activities. Santa usually enters on a fire truck with the help of many people including the local police. There are games for the kids, including an “Elfie-Selfie” area for pictures with Santa’s elves, a bounce house, and plenty of smiles and joy each year.
Have Shears Will Travel is a non-profit hair care ministry organized to serve the local community with special needs that restrict their ability to obtain these services due to physical impairment, lack of transportation, or financial means. The founder and Executive Director, Barbara Goodson is one of our church members. Each year our Maundy Thursday offering goes to this ministry that one of our Bishops, Jeff Fisher, described as “a modern-day foot washing.” We support this outreach through Board membership, attending an annual fundraising gala, and other opportunities as they arise.
