Blessing of the Animals October 7

Join us for the Blessing of the Animals service in the courtyard of Christ the King Church on Saturday, October 7 at 11:00 a.m.

The service, which was first offered by Christ the King Church in 1995, lasts about 45 minutes. In the past it has drawn pet owners both from the congregation and from the community at large. A diversity of pets have been presented, including ferrets, crabs, and gold fish, as well as the more typical cats and dogs. Pet treats and human snacks will be available following the service.

Friday Morning Bible Study Resumes September 15

All are invited to Friday Morning Bible Study. We gather after 10:00 a.m. for snacks and fellowship in the 2nd floor council room. Bible Study and prayer begin at 10:30, and we finish approximately 11:40 a.m.

Friday Morning Bible Study is an opportunity to enrich life in preparation for the Sunday assemblies. We read the texts assigned for the Sunday liturgy and prepare ourselves for the encounter with the living Lord who promises to be with us in word and sacrament.
