“A Place of Grace, sharing the Love of God with each other

And the Community”

 

October 25, 2020

KIMA AUCTION: Each year we hold an auction to gather funds to be used by KIMA to spread the Good News of God’s love and salvation in Mexico. This year on November 8 after late church we will be serving a barbeque lunch under the direction of Brent Rutan. To make this auction possible, we are asking for people to donate homemade items for the auction. If this Covid-19 keeps persisting, we may be forced to have the auction out on the parking lot. It would be nice to have non-perishable items ready to be displayed on November 1. If you have any questions, please contact Gary Montgomery at 972-935-4520 or Norman Finke at 972-935-8017. Volunteers are needed to help prepare and serve the meal. We have an online sign up for volunteers, please look for the link under the KIMA picture to sign up in a recent email titled “KIMA AUCTION 2020.”
 
INDIVIDUAL GLASS COMMUNION TIP: When taking the individual cup from the tray, please use your thumb and forefinger to grasp the lip of the cup and pull straight up. The cups are plastic and trying to remove them by squeezing the outer rim could prove to be difficult and breakage and spilled contents could occur. Please contact any Elder with any questions or comments you may have.
COUPLES’ RETREAT: After a successful men’s retreat, a request was given to the pastor about doing a couple’s retreat. The pastor is more than willing to lead one. However, to make an effective one, a steering committee is needed. If you would like to see Christ the King host a couple’s retreat and would be willing to serve on a steering committee, please submit your name to Pastor Raebel.
 
RESPECTING CHRIST THE KING: The Board of Elders wishes to remind all that it strives to create an atmosphere worthy of our King’s presence when worshipping Him. Your cooperation in creating and maintaining this atmosphere would be greatly appreciated. As we worship the King in our presence, be reminded that the polite and proper time to enter or leave the sanctuary would be when the King is not speaking to us such as when His holy Word is read or the pastor is preaching about the King, or while we are in the midst of praying or confessing our sins to our King. However, if an emergency should arise, please, take care of your needs (Mark 2:23-28).
 
ALL SAINTS’ SUNDAY: On November 1st we will remember those saints who have been transferred from our church to the church triumphant since November 3, 2019. We will be remembering from our church Cathy Shows, Ruth Schumacher, Butch Keene, and Claire Halamka. A family non-member added is Joel Boelter the brother of Carol Fetch. If you had a Christian immediate family member (parent, sibling, child) die since November 3, 2019, and would like them remembered, please submit that name to the church office.
 
UPGRADING OUR FACEBOOK LIVE: Thank you to Ron Halamka and Vikki Lindsey for donating iPhones for our new Facebook Live setup! Check us out on Facebook, put a like on our page and encourage others to do so, making us more visible to the WORLD! We also need volunteers to help monitor this new live stream set up during worship. Please see Allison or Kurt if you are willing to serve in this way!
 
FAMILY FALL FEST! Save the date for our Family Fall Fest, happening October 31st from 3-5 pm. Join us for crafts, games, snacks, candy, and fun for the whole family! We will have different stations for kids to visit, once they visit every station, they will receive a goody bag full of treats! Similar to VBS this summer, this event is only for members of CTK but you can invite a family or friend to come with you! Look for a link to register on an email or flyer from Allison! We need some volunteers to make this event happen, if you would be willing to run a station (all supplies provided) please talk to Allison!
 
FAITH AT HOME RESOURCE: Families with children and youth, be sure to pick up our fall faith at home resource a “Dinner table devotion kit” today! Enjoy quality time as a family and dig into dinner and God’s Word together.
 
COVID-19 WATCH: We continue to remind all about the recommendations to wear masks, to social distance, wash hands, and stay home if you are experiencing any illness. The latest number from Ellis County Health dated October 22, 2020, shows 169 active cases, with 54 of them being in Waxahachie. Waxahachie School with a community population of 9,445, reports on October 16, 2020, fourteen active cases with three of them being employees and eleven being students.
