The COVID-19 pandemic caused CtK to cease having in-person worship in mid-March 2020. After the state of Ohio began loosening restrictions on outdoor gatherings, the CtK Council decided to hold the first in-person worship with Holy Communion outside on Sunday, June 28, 2020. Masks and physical distancing between worshipers were both in evidence, but it was a joyous opportunity to meet again in person.
The worship service concluded with a Litany of Thanksgiving at the Close of Call for Deacon Patricia Jabre, whose retirement is set for June 30, 2020. Deacon Patti served at the Minister of Discipleship & Youth for over nine years. Farewell, Deacon Patti, and best wishes in your retirement!
