Breaking news! We begin—carefully–to gather together physically for worship with Holy Communion next Sunday, October 25, outdoors on the south lot and lawn.
Wear masks, practice safe distancing, bring lawn chairs. Attendance will be limited to the first 60 who sign-up by emailing your intention Saturday noon. We will continue to provide a video-broadcast worship service via Facebook and YouTube, with a premier time of 8:30 a.m. on Sundays.

October will be a month about “conscience.” After all, Luther’s famous speech before the Council at Wurms concluded with these words; “it cannot be either safe or honest for a Christian to speak against his conscience. Here I stand; I cannot do otherwise; God help me! Amen.”
But what is “conscience”? On October 18, Dr. Theo Dieter, an eminent Lutheran theologian and ecumenical leader from Strasbourg, France will join our Sunday Forum for a lively wrap-up conversation. October: a lively month for thinking about what makes for faithful decisions.

How does the Qur’an portray Jesus? Which stories do the Qur’an, the Hebrew Bible and New Testament share in common? How may we learn with our Muslim neighbors about matters pertaining to faith and practice? The Blue Mosque/The Dialogue Institute and Christ the King members and friends invite you for a night of mutual conversation and dialogue as we study parallel texts from the Bible and the Qur’an. All are welcomed to participate. “Bring your own dinner” if you’d like. To participate, please email Cheryl Gaspard and she will send the zoom link and passcode, as well as the appointed texts for conversation.
