    How we're dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic at Christ the King

    For Children

    Here are some things we'd like Children to know:

    • We've removed all the "church bags" and their contents. We'll replace them with coloring pages and small boxes of crayons that you can take home with you (or, you can bring your own and take them home again with you)
    • We've removed and sanitized the hard plastic toys and baskets. They'll be returned when all is clear
    • We've removed all the plush toys and their baskets for thorough cleaning.

    Grownups

    Here are some things we'd like Grownups to know:

    • Changes to our building schedule will be announced in our email newsletter, on our Facebook page, and in a section toward the top of this page.  You can scroll to the bottom of  this page on our website to sign up for our email newsletter.
    • If you've planned to come to Christ the King for something but aren't feeling well, please take care of others by staying home and taking care of yourself.

    Everyone

    Here are some things we'd like EVERYONE to know:

    • Please stay home if you feel ill, or have a fever over 100.!
    • Please be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake has forgiven you! (Ephesians 4:32)

    In worship

    Here are some adjustments we've made to worship services:

    • We've suspended worship services for the time being.  We'll let you know when we'll resume our regular worship schedule.  In the meantime, you can watch our modified devotional services on Sunday mornings at our Facebook page (click here>>) LIVE on Sunday mornings, or find the recordings of the videos later under "videos" on our Facebook page.
