New This Week
Stewardship for All Seasons
Thank you to many of you who have been able to turn in your intent cards. The ministry and mission of CtK is one that continues to impact lives of all ages with the saving message of Jesus Christ. Your gifts directly support faith forming ministry and people we reach. In fact, here is what one family said, “We’ve been watching CtK online during the pandemic and our family likes what we see. We want to join.”

Our goals for the 2021 Ministry Spending Plan:
$50,000 increase to the MSP in support of
  • Camperships
  • projection phase II
  • Visual Storyteller & Community Life Coordinator positions
Currently we are at $33,000 – 66% of the way there!
Halfway there! You can do it!
Over the last 10 days we have received 33 intent cards! That makes our total of 139 intent cards returned. We are at 25% of our total mailed out cards and desire to reach 50% return rate.

We would like all intent cards returned no matter what your response is. All gifts are celebrated as we seek to develop the spiritual practice of stewardship in the lives of the people of CtK and everyone we minister to.

Continue to be resilient in God’s love!
Support Group for Caregivers with
Loved Ones in Care Facilities
During this challenging time, we recognize the need for support for caregivers that may be unable to see their loved ones. Fox Valley Memory Project is starting a support group specifically for caregivers who have loved ones in care facilities. This is an open group and attendees are welcome to join at any time without registration. This group will start out taking place over Zoom until it is deemed safe to return to in-person programming. Join us the 2nd Thursday of each month at 12 PM.
Are you ready?

Find out when you listen to our reading from Mark 13:24-37.
This Sunday at 9:15am.
Advent Devotional
A Sanctified Art LLC is a collective of artists in ministry who create resources for worshiping communities. This collaborative brings scripture and theological themes to life. Driven by the connective and prophetic power of art, the believe is that art helps us connect our hearts with our hands, our faith with our lives, and our mess with our God.

it and decide a paper copy would benefit you, there will be paper copies in the bin by the front door.
This week Suzie talks about advent wreaths in our fourth episode of
Faith In Our Homes video series. This series is aimed at connecting families to faith.
Join us each week as member of the CtK staff will present a video focusing on Gods promises made through baptism.

Prayer Partners Ministry
Because of Covid-19 we will be registering on-line this year. With all that's going on we all could use extra prayers. Would you like to have someone to pray just for you? Would you like to pray for someone else?
The Prayer Partner Ministry participants are secretly assigned a person to pray for throughout the year. Anonymous notes of encouragement or celebration can be sent to your partners. Small gifts are nice too, but not necessary.
Prayer Partners run January-December with a "partner reveal potluck" the following January.
Attached is the registration form. Please fill the form and submit. If you would like to fill out a form but unable to do so on line give us a call.

Mission Hats - Knit Wits
Christ the King Knit-Wits have partnered with Prevent Suicide Fox Cities in making beanies for
local police officers. They are black with a royal blue stripe. Yarn and patterns will be provided for those interested in making these. Call or text
Julie Meitzen for more information. 920-450-9252
Marked Expectations – Tuesdays (December 1, 8, 15, 22) - 6:30pm

The season of Advent lends itself to time of discovery and dreaming. What is God up to? What will Christmas look like this year? Does God speak to us in our dreams? Dreaming helps people survive. We know from reading about biblical dreams that God speaks and connects with humankind to navigate life and to do God’s will.
During Advent, a midweek discussion group around Mark’s gospel will be provided. Pastor Judy has prepared four short videos to watch and discuss. Pastor Chuck will lead the discussion to ponder the Advent season of preparation for the coming of Christ’s birth.
If you would like to be part of the discussion group, please signup to receive the Zoom invitation.
