Fr Gabe shares some preliminary thoughts on re-opening CTK and assures we will continue to live-stream via Facebook.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: ...a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing.
(Ecclesiates 3:1, 5b)
We are once again live-streaming from the Poway campus via Facebook, Sundays at 10 a.m. - if you haven't already "liked" our Facebook page, please do it now - that way when you go onto FB on your phone or computer, you'll receive a notification that Christ The King is live streaming.

It's a great time to open your Bible and reread the admonition from Psalm 37 ("do not fret") and to pray Psalm 91 for yourself and your family and friends - here are the first four verses:
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
For He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
We invite you to join Christ The King Church as we gather for worship at 10 a.m. Sunday mornings - right now we are practicing "physical distancing" as directed by the government and our bishop so we are LIVE STREAMING the service on our Facebook page; the services remain viewable on our FB page except May 17, 2020 (live-streamed on FB but for some reason didn't save/share to FB; it is viewable here on our YouTube channel.

Anglicans for Life is the only global Anglican ministry dedicated to inspiring the Anglican Church to understand and compassionately apply God’s Word when addressing abortion, abstinence, adoption, euthanasia, and embryonic stem cell research.
Anglicans for Life DECLARATION OF LIFE STATEMENT:
We believe God, and not man, is the creator of human life.
Therefore, from conception to natural death we will protect and respect the sanctity of every human life.
Furthermore, we recognize that the unjustified taking of life is sinful, but God gives absolution to those who ask for His forgiveness.
Life Choices in Poway is one focus of our pro-life ministry. They provide abortion alternatives and are always in need of baby supplies to help those they counsel. Diapers, wipes, clothes from NB to 3T, and any baby items (new or gently used) are appreciated. A large gray tub by the welcome table is provided to collect your donated items.
CTK is very active in Kairos. Kairos programs offer to prison residents, their families, and those who work with them, the opportunity to receive God’s forgiveness through faith in Jesus Christ, and to grow in their faith and servant hood through Christian community. Kairos Outside is an ecumenical ministry for women who have been affected by the imprisonment of a loved one or who have been incarcerated themselves, where they can learn how to cope with the incarceration.
