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

 
August 1, 2021
 

COUPLE’S RETREAT:  Pastor is wondering if there is an interest in hosting a 2022 spring couple’s retreat.  If you would like to serve on a steering committee to organize one, please submit your name to Pastor Raebel.

BUILDING COMMITTEE UPDATE:  The committee is taking action to pool together financial and statistical information needed to apply for a loan from our church’s banking institution and talks with the real estate are in process.

SMALL GROUP LEADERS NEEDED: We are wishing to start our small groups back up again this fall.  If you would be willing to be a small group leader this fall, please submit your name to Pastor Raebel or Allison Daniels. Our focus this fall will be studying spiritual discernment of God’s will for our lives. Leaders we have now are Kurt Hilsabeck, Karl Goss, Allison Daniels, Greg Markwardt, Pastor Raebel, Jill Kasper, Deb Bitner, and Pastor Halamka.  We can use more. If you don’t remember the small group, you were a member of, or not in one, please let Pastor know of your interest and he will get you enrolled. A small group leader meeting will be held on August 16 at 7:00 p.m.

COVID-19 WATCH:  We are aware of no active case in our congregation. On July 28th it was reported that there is a total of 29 Covid hospital patients and 4 ICU patients in Ellis County. On July 28th the Texas Department of Health reports an “estimated” 202 active cases in Ellis County. These are major increases. This virus is seeming to like the summer heat. There has been no Covid deaths recorded in Ellis County in the last thirty-two days. It appears the lethality of this virus has weakened due to nature or increase in medical technology or both. However, it still can create long term health issues. Please continue to do what you can to keep the numbers down by taking precautionary measures.

GERMANY TRIP:  Pastor has called Educational Opportunities on organizing a trip to Germany to visit Luther land in the spring of 2022.  They gave assurance that it would be a go by then.  Right now, pastor is looking for anyone interested in going.  No money needs to put down, just let him know that you have an interest.

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. We need volunteers in the month of August. We are in desperate need of help.

SAVE THE DATE- RALLY DAY:  This year’s Rally Day is August 15th. Fall kick-off. MOVING UP DAY! Special activities for kids and adults!
