First Time Visitors
Welcome to a Community Called Memorial
Memorial Lutheran Church of Katy is a Christ-centered community of disciples that has been serving the Katy area for over 75 years through its Missions, Ministries, and Preschool. While our church and preschool are set among the beautiful oaks of Old Katy, we are a people who are actively living out our faith in our many subdivisions, schools, businesses, and activities that make up our greater Katy community.
If it’s your first time, we recommend arriving 15 minutes early for check-in. Please see our Health & Safety Guidelines for more information about that process. We begin our worship promptly at 9:00 am both in-person and online. Additionally, our worship space is temporarily located in our Fellowship Hall due to the refurbishment of our Sanctuary.
Service Times & Duration
Worship begins at 9:00 am and usually lasts about one hour and fifteen minutes. It includes music, prayers, scripture readings, a children's message, and a sermon message.
Memorial Lutheran welcomes everyone just as they are. Some people dress up and others dress very casually. We encourage you to come the way that you feel most comfortable.
During the Service
Each week will have small differences, but there are a few things you can always expect:
You will receive God's love, truth, and grace.
This happens when the scriptures are read, we listen to God's Word preached in the sermon, we receive forgiveness of sins after a silent confession time, and as we celebrate Baptism and take part in the Lord's Supper.
The messages will be true to what God says in the Bible, focus on Christ, and be relevant for today.
We respond to God's love, truth, and grace.
This happens when we praise God through songs and music, pray, meditate and reflect upon God's Word, confess our sins to God, and give back to God a portion of what He has already given us.
As part of our weekly services, we do take up an offering. If you are a guest, please do not feel any pressure or obligation to give. This is an act of devotion and generosity for our regular worshipers, allowing them to thank God for all of the great work He is doing in their lives, to learn to trust God more, and to give back to help continue the work of the church.
Children & Youth
If you have children, they’ll LOVE our kids’ and youth ministries. We’ve put a lot of energy into making their activities engaging, educational, interactive, and fun for kids of all ages. It is our priority to make disciples of Jesus, and our children are a crucial part of this endeavor.
We have activities on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings (during the school year). From newborn through 4th grade, they have their own music, games, skits, object lessons, crafts, and Bible stories. As kids move into the 5th through 12th grades, we have progressively deeper Bible studies dedicated to their individual development and maturity as disciples of Christ.
