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.
The concept of ‘house churches’ dates to Christianity’s early days, with New Testament references including the stories of the Last Supper and Pentecost. Little did we know that the house church groups that started last fall would find themselves transitioning this past spring to a virtual meeting format via Zoom. Continue reading
Tuesday, September 15, 6:00 p.m.
The Blue Mosque/The Dialogue Institute and Christ the King members and friends continue to join together for study and conversation on parallel texts from the Bible and the Qur’an. All are welcome to participate. “Bring your own dinner” if you’d like while we share online.
To participate, please email the church office and we will send the zoom link and passcode, as well as the appointed texts for conversation.
Join us for a virtual coffee hour after our online worship on Sunday, September 20 at 12:15 p.m. in our virtual courtyard (aka your favorite Zoom location).
As any good Lutheran knows, one of the most beloved rituals on Sundays mornings is our gathering around the coffee pot after worship. As much as we love our coffee, we also love an opportunity for conversation and connection. Bring your own coffee (BYOC) and join us for an informal time of checking in with one another. Tea drinkers welcome. After all, we are an inclusive community.
Contact the church office for Zoom connection details.
