A Summer Discussion Group has Begun and All are Welcome!

Wednesdays, 6:00 p.m., at the parsonage

The “Love Your Neighbour” discussion group invites you! The group who read James Cones’ The Cross and the Lynching Tree with Pastor Larson wants to continue discussion about racism in American society. All are welcome. The group is committed to caring, honest, and safe conversation on issues of race, seeking how more faithfully we as Christian individuals and as church can bring our part to God’s intended rule of reconciling love to neighbor and world. The book basis for our conversations over the summer is Michael Eric Dyson’s, Tears We Cannot Stop, A Sermon to White America. It is available on Amazon in softback and Kindle format. All is casual; snacks and beverages to share are welcomed.

Submit a check made out to Christ the King Church and earmarked “CCSC Back to School” in the offering on Sundays now through August 14 or donate on-line. Contributions in any amount are welcomed!

Since 1986 the Christian Community Service Center (CCSC) has helped deserving and under-resourced students through its Back To School program. In 2016, 6,603 children received grade-appropriate school supplies, a voucher for new uniforms/shoes, and a hygiene kit. Continue reading
