At Christ Our King, our leadership teams (pastoral, Elders, Properties, and Council) continue to monitor and discuss our current circumstances, locally and beyond, with regard to COVID and how that impacts our congregation. As of now, we are not recommending any changes to our current church procedures, but would like to remind our members of the variety of ways they can participate in the life of the church:
- We continue to offer in-person Sunday services at 8:15 and 10:00 a.m. for the rest of summer, and then, starting September 12th, at 8:15 and 11:00 a.m.
- For now, the chairs in the rear half of the sanctuary will remain spaced further apart for those who would like more distancing. The church HVAC units also have Reme Halo systems installed which purify and disinfect the circulated air.
- Everyone is welcome to wear a facemask according to their own comfort level. We realize everyone has their own reasons, concerns, or medical necessities for wearing or not wearing a facemask and that is fully respected by all.
- The 8:15 a.m. worship service will continue to be livestreamed on YouTube (link is on our website or sent out to the congregation via email). It is also available to watch anytime afterwards as a recorded service following the same links.
- For those who would like to be in the church building but want more social distancing, the 8:15 a.m. worship livestream is being shown in the Family Life Center (FLC). On Communion Sundays, our pastors would be happy to discuss ways of bringing Communion to you.
- As always, our pastors would be willing to schedule either an individual Communion meeting or a home visit for those who are not able to join us on Sunday mornings.
We are planning to begin the process of resuming fall church activities, particularly Sunday School and Bible Studies, as well as Wednesday night programs. Some Bible Studies will have the opportunity for members to participate via Zoom (see our website or newsletter for more details). In addition, components of our Sunday worship, such as Communion procedures, are being continually evaluated and any future changes will be communicated to the congregation.
