“Behold, I make all things new.”  ~ Revelation 21:5

CtK Currently Remains Closed. . .

Orders from the governor’s office and recommendations from the Office of the Bishop have led us to the conclusion that we must extend our suspension of in-person worship services and meetings through May 10, 2020, at which point we will re-evaluate the safety of in-person gatherings. At this time, worship services for Wednesdays at 6pm and Sundays at 9:15am (worship, then fellowship) are offered online via Zoom; Thursday Noon Bible Study is also offered online each week.  It is hoped that the form of these online services will be meaningful to you.  (*For more information on Zoom webinars, please refer to the webinar links list below).

Christ the King Lutheran Church continues to need your financial support, especially in this time of need. Giving financially to Christ the King Lutheran Church is vital to continue these ministries that work to sustain and strengthen you and your faith in these trying times. You can give to Christ the King Lutheran Church in many ways. Visit http://www.ctkdurango.org/learn-more/give for more information and links to give online.

During this unprecedented time in our lives, you are encouraged to do whatever you can to promote the public health, especially for those who are most vulnerable. If you are healthy and are able to help with grocery shopping, to run errands, or help in any other way, please email  pastortim@ctkdurango.org.  He will do his best to connect those who have needs to those who have offered their help.

Remember to take care of yourselves. Go for walks. Laugh and talk with neighbors (from a safe distance and wearing your facemask). Wash your hands well and often. Enjoy the beauty of creation in which we live. Get off your computer and away from news and just read a book for a while. Play a board game. Take part in fun faith formation resources that we have available to you online at www.ctkdurango.org   Be patient, kind, and compassionate as always. Remember that this hardship will come to an end. Pray that it comes quickly.

CtK Recognizes and Honors 2020 Graduates!

Graduation is a very special time of the year for those graduating.  Sadly, most of this year’s graduates will experience less than a normal graduation due to Covid-19.  Consequently, it is even more important to be able to recognize and honor the accomplishments of CtK’s fine, young adults who will be going on to the next stage of their journey.  Please offer up a special prayer of hope for their future successes.
