Our Prayer Network team are parishioners who daily devote time to pray for the needs of others. They receive requests to pray for members of Christ the King, our families, friends, neighbors, and for concerns of the congregation and community. Cathie Craig compiles and emails a weekly prayer list and also sends additional prayer requests that come in throughout the week. Emergency prayer requests are called by team members.
A Stephen Minister is trained to provide one-to-one Christ-centered care to hurting people. We meet bi-monthly that include education and peer review of the Stephen Ministers.
Twice a month on Sundays, our Eucharistic Visitors take communion to members of the parish who are unable to attend services. Eucharistic Visitors receive specialized training, offered once a year through the Diocese.
Following every worship service, people gather for fellowship in Kempsell Hall. Coffee and tea are always served and most Sundays, there are additional treats brought by parishioners who enjoy sharing with others.
Throughout the year, newcomers are welcomed to Christ the King with a brunch or an evening reception. Gathering with our newcomers offers them a chance ask questions about Christ the King and gives CTK members an opportunity to hear some different perspectives on how we can be God’s people together.
Once a month on Thursdays, there is an opportunity to meet at The Old Neighborhood Restaurant in Arvada to share lunch and become better acquainted with each other.
Gathering in small groups of 6-10 allows parishioners to get to know one another and develop healthy relationships. Groups generally take turns meeting in one another’s home for a shared meal. Meeting at restaurants is also an option.
Bunko night in our parish hall is organized by Kay Seiler. Ladies bring snacks to share a fun evening together.
