Weekly Announcements

Covid Changes for June – Starting next Sunday, June 6th, we will no longer require masks to be worn as you worship in the sanctuary. We do ask that all our worshippers wear a mask to enter/exit the sanctuary. We also continue to ask you not to gather in front of doorways but allow those desiring to exit to do so without passing through a gauntlet of folks who are fellowshipping.

Children’s Discipleship Class – We will resume Sunday morning discipleship classes for our children beginning on June 6th at 10:45 a.m. They will meet in the Puppet House room to begin each Sunday. Class will go from 10:45 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. We hope to see your children there.

Quilting – Quilting will be Thursday, June 10th and 24th at 10:00 a.m. in rooms 7 and 8.

Financial Stewardship at Christ

Weekly/monthly offerings at Christ may be placed in the offering plates located by the sanctuary entrance doors, mailed in via U.S.P.S., or given through the online portal (“Online Giving”) accessed through our website at www.Christaustin.org. Thank you for your continued stewardship of God’s blessings and for your support of our ministry here at Christ.

Online Giving

A word of thanks to all of you for your continued support of our ministry here at Christ Lutheran Church, and a special note of thanks to all of you who have chosen to give online through our website with the Vanco portal.  In a time of less volunteerism due to Covid-19 and such, the online giving is less cumbersome and more streamlined for our Financial Secretary to manage.  That being said, we would ask those of you giving through this online way to consider giving through your bank accounts (savings or checking) as opposed to using a credit/debit card.  We are charged a 2.75% transaction fee whenever a credit/debit card is used, and while that may not seem like a lot for a $25 offering ($0.69 fee), for a $500 offering ($13.75 fee) those fees become quite significant.  Again, we are grateful for any and all offerings and gifts to Christ Lutheran, but in order to be the best stewards of what God has entrusted to us we do kindly ask all of you credit/debit card givers to consider using one of your bank accounts instead.  Thank you.
