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

April 11,  2021
 

BUILDING COMMITTEE UPDATE:  The committee is working hard to present concrete proposals to the voters this year.  They are in the process of working up to three proposals, having them first reviewed by elders and council, and then presenting them to the voters in the June voters meeting where answers will be given to questions. There is no plan to take a vote at that time on the proposals. The committee believes this decision will need a month of prayer and therefore plans to schedule a special voter meeting in July to have the vote.

 

COVID-19 SAFETY COMMITTEE:  Considering where all data is at in the great state of Texas, (vaccinations, hospitalizations, deaths, active cases), the committee is agreeing to remove all required social distancing in pews. Every step to normalcy is refreshing, but all steps are conditional upon the data.  Pray that the data stays the same or decreases further so that backward steps will not be needed.  Praise God!!!

 

SAVE A LILY SAVE A LIFE:  Plants are living things too!  Please think about adopting a lily by taking one home and giving it the loving, nourishment it needs while it rewards you with its beauty and message of the resurrection.  As a matter of fact, do you know the reason why the lily was chosen as the Easter flower?  It is because the petals take the form of a trumpet, an instrument which signals the good news that He is Risen!

 

NAME TAGS:  Please consider wearing your name tags on Sunday mornings.  It helps visitors know who the members of our church are and that they can approach you with questions about our services or building.   

 

CHURCH FINANCES:  We at CTK continue to be blessed by the Lord in this area!  Our deficit at the end of February dropped another $1,294.00 and stood at ($1,262) at the end of February. Your council and boards have been incredibly good stewards as well as they have spent $14,669 less than what was budgeted to be spent at this time. May our Lord continue to bless us in our stewardship of giving and spending!

 

BOARDS REMINDER:  Boards of Christ the King, make sure you get your budget numbers turned into our treasurer, Michael Todd, by April 18th.  If they are not turned in, the finance committee will have to take care of it.

 

FROG BUDDIES: The Board of Christian Education needs your help! Please consider “adopting” a Sunday School student as your F.R.O.G. (Fully Rely on God) Buddy. This will help build intergenerational relationships here at CTK and make us feel like a family! We have an online signup sheet through Sign up Genius.  You will see below their name whether they are worshipping at church or at home. We will have some in-person opportunities for those attending church this spring to connect. But we also want to make sure we connect with those kids that are worshipping at home, as well.  You can do that by sending a card and becoming pen pals! This is a great way for those of you still worshiping at home to connect with other at-home members. After you sign up you will receive an email with the student’s birthday and address so you can connect with them. 

 

NURSERY VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: New dates have been added, click on the sign-up tab and check the calendar for any free dates that you might be available to help in this ministry. Thank you for all you do to further the Kingdom through the efforts of CTK.

 

COVID-19 WATCH:  We are aware of no active cases in our congregation. Waxahachie school systems, reported on April 1st, 8 active cases. On April 6th, it was reported that there is a total of 12 Covid hospital patients and 4 ICU patients in Ellis County. Texas department of health reports an “estimated” 79 active cases in Ellis County with 33 of them being found in Ellis County hospitals and schools.  Ellis County hasn’t reported a Covid death for over two weeks.
