Formation of the Sun and its Planets Sunday, October 25, 6:00 p.m., online
In October, join Professor Patrick Hartigan of Rice University as he explains the formation of the sun & its planets.

Festival Party and Variety Show on Friday, November 20, 7:00 p.m. online.
Submit your videotaped act by November 2.
Although we cannot assemble in-person for our annual Festival party this year, we will still have a great gathering to celebrate our congregation’s life and ministry. And this year’s entertainment will be our best ever as we host the CTK Variety Hour. You are invited to submit a 2-3 minute video of your talent. Perhaps you are a singer, dancer, magician, instrumentalist, actor, comedian, chef, acrobat, pet trainer, craft maker or dare devil. Or perhaps you are part of a duo, trio, or the family VonTrapp. We need you! And if you need video or technical assistance, we can help with that. Let us know by October 24 of your intention to submit a video so we can save your spot in our show line-up! Contact Beverly Davis.
Each year on November 1 and 2 many communities participate in “Día de los Muertos.” The celebration does not translate directly into English, but many know it as “the day of the dead” (Pixar’s Coco comes to mind). Different from Halloween, it is not a day of fear, scary or funny costumes or even receiving tricks or treat. Día de Los Muertos is more of a large family reunion (the living and the dead) where life is celebrated and the lives of those that have died in our families and community are remembered with meals and colorful altars (ofrendas as they are known; think “offerings”).
This year Christ the King Church will celebrate a Día de Los Muertos service on Sunday, November 1, at 5:00 p.m. in the Columbarium. If you are interested in helping plan the celebration, please contact Intern Sergio Rodriguez.
