OUTDOOR & ONLINE WORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES - SUMMER
+ We will begin offering an outdoor worship opportunity on Pentecost Sunday, May 23 @ 9:30. People are invited to come to the parking lot masked - bring a lawn chair, sit socially distanced from your neighbors, record information for contact tracing, and enter into a time of worship. We will continue with Communion being celebrated every-other-week with the prepackaged communion elements - but this time in-person, together!
For those who don't yet feel safe to gather together physically, or if weather is a concern - there will be a simple Service of the Word available each week online with Communion being celebrated every-other-week with drive through communion from 11am-12p.
RETURNING TO INDOOR WORSHIP - FALL
+ We will seek to begin a gradual return to in-person worship in the sanctuary beginning on September 12, 2021. There will be a new process, pattern, and flow to our gatherings. We also intend to continue with some form of an online service at this time - although much is still being discerned and decided. Stay tuned for more details to be shared mid-Summer.
The Christ the King Church building and property is open to small groups beginning May 23. Please read further for fuller details.
Outdoor Groups - please position yourselves so that social distancing can be maintained. We ask you to be sure to have someone record the names and phone # of those gathered and send those to Pastor, for Contact Tracing. If all in the group are vaccinated masks are up to the group. However, we seek to live by the call to "love our neighbors as ourselves" and do for our neighbor what we can, over and above our individual "rights."
Inside Groups - these groups must be 12 or less in number, be hosted in one of our meeting rooms that have windows. Windows must be opened, and masks must be world. We ask you to be sure to have someone record the names and phone # of those gathered and send those to Pastor, Please be sure to close the windows and clean up the space as you leave. Remember always that we seek to live by the call to "love our neighbors as ourselves" and do for our neighbor what we can, over and above our individual "rights."
Dear Siblings in Christ,
January 6, 2021 was a sad and scary day in our nation’s history – as mobs of rioters swarmed and illegally entered our nation’s Capital Building during a time when our elected officials were doing the work we elected them to do. Much of this mob mentality was stirred by leaders in the highest positions in our government; while many of us sat in front of our tvs, connecting to websites, and checking in on print media not truly believing that this was really happening. We lament this vicious attack – the destruction, the fear, the injury and the loss of life. We lament the loss of trust in our institutions, in our community, and even among each other – the very goal of this act of terrorism.
There is a lot of concern, confusion, fear, and division in our country right now. This is not who we are called to be. As people of faith we are called to do justice, love mercy, and to walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8) in all areas of our lives. This means that we are called to be a part of bringing about justice, healing, and wholeness within our nation and beyond – for all people. And that begins not in silence but in prayer.
We pray for the families of the people who have died in this act of terrorism. We pray for the safety of all lawmakers and staff, for the public safety officers, for journalists, and for the people living in the immediate areas. We pray for swift and transparent action on the part of lawmakers and law enforcement. We pray for the peacemakers and justice workers on the ground, as they continue to work for a safe and open government for all. We pray for families and communities that are divided. We pray that we – individually and collectively – will own our own part in this, and commit to work toward the peace and justice that we are called to by God.
In the Rite of Affirmation of Baptism (which we will share together on January 17th) we are asked if we intend to continue in the covenant God made with us in holy baptism: to live among God’s faithful people, to hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s supper, to proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed, to serve all people, following the example of Jesus, and to strive for justice and peace in all the earth? As we seek to process what has taken place and how we take the next steps, may we remember this call and respond loudly saying, “We do, and we ask God to help and guide us.”
May we turn and reflect the love and justice of God.
~ Pastor Kim
