BEING CHURCH AMIDST INTERNATIONAL HEALTH CRISIS

CHRIST THE KING HAS CLOSED THE BUILDING UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

We have had conversation over the past several weeks about the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.  The WHO declared an official pandemic as the spread and impact continues to grow.  There is much not known about this virus, and what is known is that the impact on people over the age of 60, and those with compromised immune systems can be deadly - while for the majority of others it is minimal.  We also know that people can be asymptomatic - meaning they have NO symptoms and feel perfectly fine - but they carry the virus and have the potential to share it.  With all that said, many communities - educational, governmental, social, and faith - are having to make hard decisions about their life, in light of our interconnectedness, and for the sake of those most impacted.

We at Christ the King are facing those decisions as well, and our intent to to keep our communication flowing and regular.  Below you will find current changes to our life together and can return here regularly for updates.  We will also make use of our online email service, as well as Facebook, and one-on-one phone calls as things warrant.  As we make changes to our life together we hold fast to our faith and our call to care for the least of those among us.

As of March 14, 2020 the following changes have been made:

+ The church building is CLOSED.  Worship and other experiences will be taking place in new ways.  Please watch for details daily on this page and click here to read the email that just was sent out announcing the closure.  


If at anytime you need to reach Pastor Kim directly please call her office phone at 603-664-4632 to be connected with her cell phone.

We pray together this prayer offered up by the ELCA:

God, our peace and our strength, we pray for our nation and the world as we face new uncertainties around coronavirus. Protect the most vulnerable among us, especially all who are currently sick or in isolation. Grant wisdom, patience, and clarity to health care workers, especially as their work caring for others puts them at great risk. Guide us as we consider how best to prepare and respond in our families, congregations, workplaces, and communities. Give us courage to face these days not with fear but with compassion, concern, and acts of service, trusting that you abide with us always; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

CONVERSATIONS ON SYSTEMIC RACISM


With the recent death of George Floyd, our nation is once again staring face-to-face with our history of systemic racism. As followers of Christ our call is to love our neighbor and seek justice for all the earth. This is our call. This is our work.
 
To stir this work we will be engaging in reading, listening, and reflecting on race, racism, and our part in dismantling the systems and structure that keep it all in place. 
 
We will be reading and discussing some of our own denomination's writings on race - beginning with the 1993 social statement entitled, Freed in Christ: Race, Ethnicity and Culture (click here for an online version or email pastor@ctknashua.org to request a hard copy.) These conversations will take place in July. Click on the link below to respond to a survey regarding best days and times to hold these conversations via ZOOM.
