Memories Funeral Home serves up breakfast!!

 On Wednesday August 4th, Pastor Jan helped the staff at Memories Funeral Home serve up a pancake breakfast for the 25th Anniversary of the Rock'n August Festival of Cars & Music and fundraise for Diabetes Research. Pastor Jan hauled chairs and tables for the event and was at Memories for 5:30am on Wednesday, helping to set up and then serve pancakes and sausage. Many laughs were shared with the staff at Memories on a beautiful summer morning in August. Pastor Jan also got to reacquaint himself with many of the car friends he knows. Many of the people he encountered rememered the building and know the congregation worships at Memories and asked how we are doing? It was a joy to be part of the day with Adam (and his three children), Laura, Patricia and Natasha. We are grateful for the relationships we all share.

Lutheran Women's Missionary League Canada (LWML)

 On Friday July 9, Pastor Jan had the opportunity to speak to the LWML Canada convention as delegates from across Canada met via webinar.

He spoke to over 180 delegates on "Companioning The Grieving Child."

This was a unique opportunity to share some of things he learned at his last training session on Grief and Mourning.

LWML was gracious enough to provide some funding for Pastor Jan to finish his last course and for his future course now scheduled for November 2022. The course he will be training for is entiled "Companioning Bereaved Parents."

COVID 19, WORSHIP AND RESTRICTIONS UPDATE

 A reminder: Worship is at 9:30am (Until Setpember 5)


 According to the Provice of Alberta's Open for summer plan - stage 3 is scheduled for July 1. Effective July 1:

  • All restrictions lifted, including ban on indoor social gatherings.
  • Isolation requirements for confirmed cases of COVID-19 and some protective measures in continuing care settings remain.
  • The general indoor provincial mask mandate will be lifted, but masking may still be required in limited and specific settings.

In a recent meeting with the elders and pastor it was decided that King of Kings will not require members to wear masks during worship, but rather leave the decision to wear a mask or not, in members hands. For those who want to wear a mask during worship they may do so. Those who do not want to wear a mask during worship will not be required to do so. 

We will continue to provide hand sanitizer for those who wish to use it.

We will encourage physical distancing as best as possible, but will allow for free seating.

For the summer months Pastor Jan will continue to wear a mask during Holy Communion and distribute the elements as we have been doing.

Live Stream services will be offered up to and including September 5. Once again, we are grateful to Memories Funeral Home fo providing this service for us.

Pastor Jan is still asking members to let him know if you plan to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion. This helps the altar guild prepare the elements and is also a good spiritual practice for the members.

*If you have any questions please contact Pastor Jan
 

  • Please let Pastor Jan know if you plan to attend worship on Sunday July 11th and receive Holy Communion. This helps Pastor and the Altar guild prepare the proper amount of elements.
