You are invited to donate the Sunday flowers throughout the year. Here’s your chance to contribute flowers in honor or memory of your loved ones. The Sunday flowers are a significant part of the Altar Guild ministry as its members deliver them after services to families and individuals to express the congregation’s support in times of joy, sadness or concern. Our cost for flower arrangements for weekend services are $65. Please pay for the flowers when you sign up. Checks and cash can be dropped in the offering baskets (made out to Christ the King Church, memo line “Altar Flowers”). For online giving please use the Donate link on the church home page, ctkelc.org.
We celebrate the Advent season with Advent Lessons and Carols. This beautiful annual event includes readings, hymns, anthems, and prayers that mark events in the story of Redemption. Join our Church Choir, Chorus, Choristers and Junior Choristers as we fill our nave in sound! A potluck Open House will immediately follow Lessons and Carols in the parish hall. All are invited to bring a savory or sweet finger food to share. (Please bring food items already plated and ready to share, so that there will be a minimum of set-up and clean-up).
Give the gift of a couple of hours of your time and talents for our Annual Fall Dinner for the residents of the Hospitality Apartments!
