The Augsburg Centennial Singers will appear in concert at Christ the King on Saturday, Oct. 20th at 7:00 p.m.  Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and students 13 and over. True to their roots in the gospel quartet tradition, the concerts include familiar hymns, spirituals and sacred selections, and a few numbers by quartets from within the group. 

Halloween Hallway

Put on your Halloween costume (if you have one) and join us on October 31st for a festive Halloween meal and kids’ games in the hallway 5:00-6:30 pm. This will be in place of Trunk-N-Treat since Halloween is on a Wednesday. A chance to get together have a sloppy joe, play some games, get some treats and still be able to trick or treat in your own neighborhoods. We will need donations of candy for the hallway, so when you are out buying candy for your home, please consider buying an extra bag and dropping it off in the office. If you are available to help set up the hallway – please contact Lynn Lenort!!

CTK’s School Ministry Team

CTK’s School Ministry Team is excited to support you in volunteering at your local school or to connect you to volunteer opportunities at Washburn, the elementary school the kids in our immediate neighborhood attend.  We’ll be collecting box tops for education in the commons to support the teachers and students at Washburn.  E-mail Tina Elder (tinyt74@gamil.com) with any questions or for more information!
In addition, as winter approaches, we are looking to collect coats and snow pants for kids in need in Bloomington.  
Coats and snow pants can be dropped off at CTK by Wednesday, October 24th at 2pm.  On October 26th, these coats will be given to students who need them.  You can sign up to volunteer at that event at the following link:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A0E4CACAE2AA3F85-coat  or contact Sue Timmerman at stimmerman@smlcb.org
