Revised Re-entry
On May 2nd, the Re-Entry Team met again to re-visit the current Christ the King Re-entry plan. We give thanks for these faithful servants who are wading through an abundance of data, guidelines, and opinions on how to safely move forward.

Worship Schedule Change Coming Soon!
Summer's coming and we've got some exciting shifts coming up at Christ the King. After the congregational vote at our 2021 Annual Meeting to shift to one service on Sunday and one service on Wednesdays during the summer, we're moving ahead with a pandemic modified version of that plan. Here's a rundown of what you can expect this summer at Christ the King, starting Memorial Day weekend:
  • Every Sunday Morning we'll continue to offer a virtual worship service at 9:15am, with communion offered on the 4th Sundays.
  • Every Wednesday Evening we'll offer an outdoor, in-person worship service in our parking lot at 6:30pm. This worship service will offer some new, creative ways of worshiping together, with a full communion service offered on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.

Make sure you shop on your account and they will donate 0.5% of the purchase price, at no cost to you. Use this attached link to connect you directly to our Smile page and start shopping.

Thank you
Dear leaders at Christ the King,

Thank you for your hospitality and welcome this past week as we installed Bishop Anne. You hosted all of us so well – from providing warm and welcoming space, delicious individual treats, help with set up, technology, and livestreaming through Brent’s time and talents – and most of all, supporting your pastors as they gave time to preparation for this special event in the life of the synod. You did all this on the heels of Holy Week and Easter and at a time when your own gathering plans are still in process. Thank you for your diligence in holding to the re-entry plan to keep us all safe and well cared for while witnessing and echoing Christ’s care for the health and wellbeing of all people. We are deeply grateful for you and pray for your strength, resilience, and peace in these times. On behalf of a grateful installation planning team,

Pr. Jenn

Stewarding Creation at Christ the King
The spring has arrived and you might notice that the grounds at Christ the King are covered with the radiant yellow glow of dandelions. Though these pesky, unwanted weeds make our lawn look not-so-nice, the truth is...we still have a responsibility to care for them.

Did you know that dandelions provide nectar and pollen for bees? Though dandelions are not considered a first food for bees, the presence of dandelions can still lead to diverse populations of bees in the area. Why are bees so important? Because as pollinators they are responsible for the fertilization of plants which then produce our food. Without diverse populations of bees, and other pollinators, we as humans wouldn't have access to fresh grown foods.

So...though the dandelions on our property may seem unsightly, not treating them with harmful weed killers is an act of creation care that we as a congregation are called to.

In Case you Missed it

There is still time to signup - Our time line has been readjusted for the first book study - Remember all are welcome to join in.
It's been a tumultuous year when it comes to issues of racism in America. Some are wondering why it's such a big issue, while others are out on the streets marching. Regardless of where we are on our respective journeys, there is one thing that is for certain: racism is a theological issue.

In partnership with First English Lutheran Church in Appleton, we are rolling up our sleeves and digging into discussion about racism and how it affects our lives. Throughout the summer, pastors from both congregations will be leading a series of studies that will help us find ways of talking about and addressing racism in our daily lives. No matter where you are on your journey of learning about racism, we hope to have a study that meets you where you are. When we see race, we are seeing God's grace and love at work!

We also have audible books available if you are interested let Pastor Dara know.
