|St. Elisabeth's & Christ the King Episcopal Church||
St. Elisabeth's & Christ the King is a small, yet friendly and family oriented congregation in the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth. We are a member congregation of The Episcopal Church, governed by The General Convention and under the care of our Presiding Bishop, The Most Rev. Michael Bruce Curry. We are directed by The Rt. Rev. Scott Mayer, Provisional Bishop of Fort Worth and pastored by The Rev. Sandra Michels, priest-in-charge. We are located very near the Joint Reserve Base off of River Oaks Boulevard (Highway 183) on the west side of Fort Worth. Parking is around in back of the church. Come visit us; we'd love to see you!
MARK YOUR CALENDAR!
The Rt. Rev. J. Scott Mayer will be visiting our congregation on December 3, the First Sunday of Advent. Potluck after service - bring your favorite dish!
This will also be our first official Sunday with our new deacon, Chris Thomas!
