Join us Sundays at 9:30 AM for Worship online during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Below are some links to worship/education/prayer experiences that you are invited to enter into - as you are. Currently most of these are online due to our continued care for each other amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Some are weekly/recurring, while others are one time special events.
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
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.
