Sunday Evening Conversations on Creation

Biodiversity Loss & What You Can Do
Sunday, Jan. 27, at 6 p.m.

Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church invites you to a monthly environmental education web meeting series whose theme in 2019 is environmental issues and what you can do. In January, Kerri Crawford, assistant professor at the University of Houston, Department of Biology & Biochemistry, will speak on biodiversity loss. Biodiversity loss has been deemed one of the most significant environmental issues facing North America by the U.N.’s Global Environmental Outlook, the U.N.’s flagship environmental assessment. Professor Crawford will educate on the importance of biodiversity as well as the latest findings on biodiversity loss, so that you can understand the issue. She will also explain the actions you can take to preserve biodiversity. Please register for this talk.

“Navigating the System: Accessing Services for Your Child Now and For the Long Term” What are the long term services and supports

March 28th: Kingsland Baptist Church 2055 Kingsland Blvd., Katy, TX 77450 Parking Area Entrance #3 – Conference Room A 6:30 – 8:00 P.M.

What are the long term services and supports for your child and how do you access them? Navigating the system is confusing and filled with confusing terms such as CFC, PAS/HAB and LIDDA. Does your child have a Medicaid waiver, Community First Choice or another plan of service and do you know what services are available? Are there changes on the horizon that may impact the services your child receives? Attending this training will help you navigate the system and provide answers to your questions.

Live Music – Jus Coz

March 29, 2019 6:30pm Central Green Park
23501 Cinco Ranch Blvd.,
Katy, TX 77494

JusCoz is made up of 4 members from the Worship Team at Parkway Fellowship Church in Richmond, Texas. As fans of Classic Rock, they decided to team up and play the tunes they love: anything from Aerosmith to ZZ Top. They play hits from all the way from the 60’s to the 90’s. At the same time, they wanted to serve, so they decided that JusCoz would always play for a “just cause”. Proceeds from JusCoz shows are donated to local charities. For this performance at Central Green (brought to you by Willow Fork Drainage District), proceeds will be donated to Building New Foundations. This amazing volunteer group works with disadvantaged children in the Houston area. Here is a link: www.buildingnewfoundations.com
