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

And the Community”


September 20, 2020

REMINDER OF SAFETY GUIDELINES: We are so glad to see people returning to public worship! As the numbers increase, we wish to remind all about the recommendations to wear masks, to social distance, wash hands, and stay home if you are experiencing any illness. We again need to stress that no chairs should be set up against the back wall as this violates the 6-foot social distancing with the back pew. To prevent this from happening, ushers and elders will be strongly encouraging “overflow” seating to take place in the choir section where social distancing can be maintained. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding. We hope that a day will soon be coming where we can feel comfortable in opening more pews for seating. We continue to thank God that He has kept our church COVID-19 free through all of this and for the diligence of our members not only within the church, but also in their daily lives outside the church. Latest report on September 15 is that there were 103 confirmed active cases of COVID in Ellis County, with 21 of them being in Waxahachie.
PRIVATE COMMUNION: Pastor will be holding six 10-minute private communion services at church on October 10th for those not yet comfortable with public worship. The services will begin at 5:00 p.m. and go until 6:00 p.m. If you are interested, please click on the link on the church’s website to register. If you so desire communion and the time nor format work for you, please call the church office where a time and comfortable format can be arranged.
MEN’S RETREAT: Our Men’s Retreat will be held October 16-18th. We begin at 6:30 p.m. on the 16th, with supper being served at 7:00 p.m. We have eleven committed. If there are men that would still like to join us and have not paid a registration fee of $65.00, you may get in if you register before September 30th. Our theme is “Winning the Spiritual Battles.” The event will include devotions, worship, Bible study, fellowship, meals, lodging, and a free Saturday afternoon for relaxation to boat or fish on Lake Texoma.
MISSION SUNDAY COMING: The Board of Social Ministry and Outreach is planning a Mission Sunday for October 4th. Mission agencies (Texas District, First Look, Waxahachie Care, KIMA, etc.) which are supported by our mission dollars will be invited to set up booths in our fellowship hall during the Bible Class hour and share with our members their ministry.
SEPTEMBER YOUTH EVENTS – Don’t forget about the youth group Bible study on Sunday afternoons! High School meets 1st and 3rd Sundays, Jr. High 2nd, and 4th.
UPCOMING YOUTH FUNDRAISER – Do you love chips and salsa? Do you want to support CTK youth as they raise funds for National Youth Gathering 2022? On Sunday September 27th and October 4th, the youth will be selling the one and only, world-famous salsa, made by our very own Billy Crawford! $10 gets you a jar of salsa and a bag of chips, what a deal!
