|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!

Listen again to the words of our epistle lesson from The Letter of James as paraphrased by Eugene Peterson in The Message:
“A bit in the mouth of a horse controls the whole horse. A small rudder on a huge ship in the hands of a skilled captain sets a course in the face of the strongest winds. A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything – or destroy it!
“It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire. A careless or wrongly placed word out of your mouth can do that. By our speech we can ruin the world, turn harmony to chaos, throw mud on a reputation, send the whole world up in smoke…”
God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?"
William A. Ward
“When the solution is simple, God is answering.”
