Greetings from your Church Council!

This month, we simply want to say, “Thank You!”  Thank you to our amazing church staff who have worked so hard to keep us connected through worship and fellowship during this time. Thank you to all who have participated in the many prayer, worship and bible study online opportunities.  Thank you to our Council and congregation members who are continuing to team up to accomplish some great work–like our ComMission Team for offering up the stay-at-home Movie Bracket.  We hope you’ve been enjoying the game!  And thank you to everyone who has made phone calls to stay in touch and care for one another.  These calls have brought joy and a smile to the day for many of us–those who have both made and received calls.  So keep making those calls!  And a special thank you to those CtK’ers and others in our Durango community whose profession calls on them to serve on the front lines during these anxious times.  You make us proud!

At this time, the Semi annual Meeting is scheduled for May 17th.  We will keep you informed of any changes as a result of the covid-19 crisis.  In the interim, please use some of your stay-at-home extra time to prayerfully consider being a member of either Church Council or our Mission Endowment Fund Board.   We are seeking a few people that can serve on these two boards and get the chance to work with other wonderful congregation members already serving.  Elections will be held for Church Council and the Endowment Fund Board during the May 17th meeting.  If you are interested in serving and would like more information, contact

Following is a poem by Laura Kelly Fanucci; may it lift your spirits and give you hope!

When this is over,

may we never again take for granted

A handshake with a stranger

Full shelves at the store

Conversations with neighbors

A crowded theater

Friday night out

The taste of communion

A routine check-up

The school rush each morning

Coffee with a friend

The stadium roaring

Each deep breath

A boring Tuesday

Life itself.


When this ends,

may we find

that we have become

more like the people

We wanted to be

We were called to be

We hoped to be,

And may we stay

That way – better

For each other

Because of the worst.
