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)
**IN-PERSON CHURCH this Sunday, September 20th at the Poway campus** SOCIAL DISTANCING with MASKS: We are going to be able to OPEN THE DOORS to the Sanctuary this coming Sunday, September 6, for any of our congregation that wants to join us in person! We will "officially" reopen the church for in-person services at the beginning of October but we are cleared by state and county regulations to allow folks to attend starting NOW. We are limited to 25% of capacity (or 100 people whichever is smaller) but I anticipate about 20 or so based on previous numbers plus a few more who may decide to join us, so we should have plenty of room for all.
MASKS ARE REQUIRED and we will do our absolute best to distance everyone safely. If you attend church with someone you also interact with outside of church and are comfortable sitting closer to them, then that's fine too.
Please remember to take your temperature before you come and if you aren't feeling well at all, please stay home. We are going to live-stream via our Christ the King (San Diego) YouTube account starting Sunday September 20th; if you follow the link you should be able to click on the LIVE video (starting at approximately 10 a.m.). The service card/bulletin for Sundays as well as the service cards for Morning & Evening Prayer can all be found on our Worship page.
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 are LIVE STREAMING the service on our Christ the King (San Diego) YouTube channel starting Sunday September 20th; if you follow the link you should be able to click on the LIVE video. The service card/bulletin for Sundays as well as the service cards for Morning & Evening Prayer can all be found on our Worship page.
Audio recordings of recent CTK sermons are available on our Soundcloud page, so you don't have to scroll through a FB video in order to listen to the sermon. If you're looking for older sermons, what we have is available via our Google Drive account; please email for the link.
We will have Morning and Evening Prayer services via public Zoom meetings at 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. respectively.
The meeting ID for Morning Prayer is 217-798-344
The meeting ID for Evening Prayer is 467-376-574

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.
