In the waters of baptism, we physically identify with Christ's death and resurrection, believing that God meets us with forgiveness and grace, and the Holy Spirit comes to us. At one's baptism, a person is publicly received into the Christian community and publicly claimed as a child of God. We believe people of any age can be baptized; when a child is baptized, parents or guardians make a commitment to raise their child in the Christian faith and community. You don't have to be a member of Christ the King to receive baptism here, but it is preferred that you and your family are somehow involved and connected with a faith community. If you would like to schedule a baptism, please talk to Pastor Laura.
Absolutely! Please call the church office at 504-469-4740 to talk about arranging your wedding or funeral at Christ the King and for more details, as our calendar fills up quickly with various events and we do have some restrictions with regard to services and use of space.
Any couple, regardless of gender, is welcome to get married here. Each couple must receive pre-marital counseling, usually from the officiating clergy, or a licensed marriage and family therapist. Only sacred music is allowed for church weddings. Please call to speak to our pastor about planning your special day.
We care for you as you grieve. We try to limit the number of family members who are asked to speak, as the grieving process may make it difficult to speak well and meaningfully at the funeral. The pastor is available to help you plan an appropriate funeral with scripture and music, and will provide a eulogy. Please call 504-469-4740 to schedule an appointment.
