Liebe Angehoerige der deutschsprachigen Community,

Please join us from near and far. The service will be premiered on December 24 but is of course available to you anytime during the Christmas Days. Maybe this year you can worship “together” in this virtual way with family members even while many miles and some time zones apart. Please share this invitation and the attached card with friends and family.
Bulletin for Christvesper Heiligabend

Am Heiligabend, 24.12., senden wir per YouTube und Facebook eine Christvesper um 16 Uhr, zu der wir Sie sehr herzlichen einladen. Das neue, ungewohnte Format bietet zum ersten Mal die Möglichkeit, mit Familie in der Ferne “zusammen” einen Weihnachtsgottesdienst zu besuchen. Vielleicht mögen Sie sich zur Kirche verabreden.

 

LONGEST NIGHT – Service of Hope and Comfort

Sunday, December 20, 6:00 pm
via zoom
Bulletin for the Longest Night Home Devotion
Christmas is a joyous time for many and yet a painful time for others. This holiday season may be the first time without the presence of a loved family member or friend taken by death. It may be a time that you are facing changes or the unknown in your life. It may be a time that has always been difficult. Trying to process all of this in the context of a devastating world pandemic adds even greater challenges. For these reasons and more Christ the King Church will again offer a special “Longest Night” service on Sunday, December 20, at 6:00 p.m. on Zoom.

Please contact ctk@ctkelc.org to receive the zoom link.

No Outdoor Worship Today – Third Sunday of Advent

Join us online only today!
11:00 a.m. on Facebook, YouTube    

On the third Sunday of Advent joy breaks forth through heavier moods of what can be called “a banner year of awful.” We light the third, pink candle on our wreaths in the home and at church. While we refrain still from in person parties, rejoicing in God’s tangible signs of hope and expectation cannot be taken from us.
Readings for December 13
Bulletin for the Third Sunday of Advent

No Holy Communion Distribution in the Parking Lot
It is too wet today to administer Holy Communion through open car windows. We will see you as soon as can on the next dry Sunday
