Christ the King Episcopal Church in Orlando, FL


It is a giveaway week! Because of the holiday my pick up day will be THURSDAY, 7/10. I would truly appreciate some strong arms and backs to help unload in front of the church around 10am on Thursday. We will also have Rick Singh, Property Appraiser, and his office volunteering at Saturday’s Giveaway. I’m asking all Giveaway volunteers to arrive no later than 7a, with masks and closed-toe shoes!
Another safe and blessed giveaway for June. We served 224 families representing 879 people. Second Harvest delivered 2 pallets of no-touch produce right on time... God is good! Thank you to all who gave of their time and talents... couldn't have done it without you... you blessed me beyond measure. Until next month, stay safe everyone!
I am very grateful to Second Harvest for their very generous donation of 1.5 pallets of FREE food this week... great stuff like pasta, sauce, cereal, tuna, ravioli, pineapple cups, juice and crackers! But wait, that's not all... they are delivering a pallet of no-touch produce AND a pallet of meat /cheese products on Saturday! A delivery on Saturday?! and, they're going to do it next month too?! Praise God is all I can say!!! I'm ESPECIALLY thankful for the hands that unlooooaded 4,000+ pounds of food... Dennis, John, Mark Roberts, Kent Roberts, Generoso, and Jeff. The pantry is packed to the hilt! And, let me not forget the hands that helped prepare the bags... Sandra Peter Schroll, Jade Baker, Carol, Barb and Joselina. We used every last paper bag we had today and were only able to prepare 152 bags. The plastic bags will work just fine for more bagging on Saturday... as soon as we have room on a table! In addition to our grocery bag of staple items, some lucky families will get the special items brought in by Brent Ray Roberts and Fabiola S. González from the office of Maggie Alexander of State Farm. And, everyone will get eggs, bread and meat! Let me know if you plan to volunteer... 7a for set-up and wear masks please! It's going to be a blessed day. See you then, God willing, Laurie
So far, it looks like I have help lined-up for unloading and some pre-bagging next week. As I mentioned in an earlier post, we will have our first drive through giveaway in April! To comply, I'm asking for our volunteers to be UNDER 65 with NO underlying health issues. These are the positions that need to be filled for Saturday: Traffic control - Carlos Ortiz and 1 more volunteer Load cars - Laurie Schoomaker and 2 more volunteers Pantry bagging - Barb Whiting and 2 volunteers Pantry-parking lot runners - 2 volunteers We will not be giving away frozen meats because Second Harvest also has a shortage of supply, however, I may pick up some produce if it is already pre-bagged. I would like volunteers to arrive no later than 7:30, so we can start at 8a to keep the parking lot as clear as possible. Hope to see 9 other smiling faces on Saturday. Until then, stay safe and be well... may God's hand of protection be over us all!
The online service this morning and Fr. Edward's sermon this week was very uplifting. Thank you for giving our parish this option to come together to worship. The music definitely added to the service.🙏
Danny Gokey is heading to Orlando on the Hope Encounter Tour this October and we don't want you to miss it! This is going to be an incredible night of music and we hope to see you there! Tickets & Event Info:

An Epiphany Message from Fr Edward

"They came from afar while following a star. They asked of a King where another "King" was to be born. They found Him and worshipped. They brought the three gifts fit for a King: Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh. They returned to the "East" from where they had come, BELIEVING!

That "King" in whom we believe and follow gave us who believe in Him, the gift of the Holy Spirit..

What gifts do you bring to Him.

Pax Christi,

We will be celebrating the 1st Sunday After Epiphany this Sunday at both the 8:00a service and at the 9:30a service. Look forward to seeing you...either in person or through the livestream broadcast.

I read this Sunday morning and it made me start thinking about the Silver Lining found in life’s cloud…”every cloud has a silver lining”
My favorite teacher always told us that "every cloud has a silver lining" and pushed us to look for the positive in every difficulty, promising
we will find it, IF we look.

As teenagers, we laughed and jokingly asked "what does she know?"
We would bring our most challenging situations to her and say,
"where is the good in that Mrs. McCarty?"
As I grew older, I found myself wanting to believe that there really are blessings in the dark clouds that signal storms.
After all, the Bible says " all things work together for good" 1
- is that what that means?
And then I learned the feeling and the meaning of HOPE 2

Years later, I know from my own experiences that Mrs. McCarty was right. And I know that you won't always
see the silver lining unless you seek it.
Sure it's not easy to find a ray of light on the darkest of days,
but as surely as God is in our every moment,
He offers Light for our path and
Words to encourage and support us at every step and turn.

And so, as you think back on 2020, will your thoughts be on the pandemic - the scourge of the earth in modern times?
OR will you find the blessings, the Godwinks, the special touches and the grace that marked His walk with us - the times and places where we can see that the Lord is true to His promise,
"I will never leave you or forsake you." 3 ©Lauren Kingsley Connection

HOW WAS YOUR 2020? Can you or have you found YOUR Silver Lining? Please comment and let us know! (If you are in need of prayers, a prayer team is at the ready.)

2nd Sunday After Christmas - Fr. Jose - January 3rd, 2021

Padre Jose Rodriguez

This a great reflection from Padre Jose Rodriguez!

Jesus, first a refugee in Egypt, and later an internally displaced refugee in Israel. The Second Sunday after Christmas is our feast day. Iglesia Episcopal Jesus de Nazaret chose for itself then name of Christ that most closely identifies with being a refugee immigrant. Many in our congregation are immigrants and refugees. Hear about how the Christ child incarnated as a refugee reaches into the lives of our members.

Please read today's Gospel and share with us in this reflection summarizing today's Spanish language sermon.

Matthew 2:13-15,19-23

After the wise men had left, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, "Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him." Then Joseph got up, took the child and his mother by night, and went to Egypt, and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet, "Out of Egypt I have called my son."

When Herod died, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, "Get up, take the child and his mother, and go to the land of Israel, for those who were seeking the child's life are dead." Then Joseph got up, took the child and his mother, and went to the land of Israel. But when he heard that Archelaus was ruling over Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there. And after being warned in a dream, he went away to the district of Galilee. There he made his home in a town called Nazareth, so that what had been spoken through the prophets might be fulfilled, "He will be called a Nazorean."

Congratulations Padre Jose' Rodriguez!

I am humbled and honored to be nominated alongside many I admire and love, including my friend Representative Anna V. Eskamani. As I read through the nominees I see many causes that intersect with the work of the The Episcopal Church in Azalea Park. I am especially grateful to Laurie Abbate Schoomaker and her leadership of the Healing Hunger Food Pantry in flawlessly executing the Lord's vision for hunger relief in our shared community. The work we do is the united efforts of the people of God at Iglesia Episcopal Jesus de Nazaret and Christ the King Episcopal Church in Orlando, FL in Azalea Park. I am also grateful to Urbander for the continued partnerships through the Azalea Project.

It takes a community to do this work. Many share in this: our friends at Alianza for Progress for organizing the Azalea Park community to bring down the monument to Stonewall Jackson; to our friends at the Hispanic Federation and Florida Conservation Voters for supporting our food pantry; to our friends at Palante por Mas and Organize Florida for supporting us in our struggle for housing; and my friends at UCF Cares and Orange County, Florida Government for supporting our COVID-19 projects through CARES funding.

There are many others. Those named are specific to the efforts named in this article I also want to thank because the work we do is for the community.

A meditation from Fr Edward as we welcome in the New Year 2021…
Remember you are held safe. You are loved. You are protected. You are in communion with God and with those whom God has sent you. What is of God will last. It belongs to the eternal life. Choose it, and it will be yours. Henri Nouwen

Advent 3 Sermon - Fr. Jose - December 13, 2020

Advent 3 Sermon - Fr. Jose - December 13, 2020

Just saw this posting about this past Saturday’s Food Giveaway, from Laurie Schoomaker with the Healing Hunger Food Pantry! What a blessing here at Christmas!

“I can sum up today in 2 words... "God provides"! Yesterday, I received an email telling me the Young Civitan group would not be able to volunteer. I put out a plea, texted a few people and put it in God's hands knowing He has always been faithful.
Well, turned out the email was sent to me in error and the Young Civitan Club did come to volunteer with their Santa hats on. The beautiful part of all this was the unexpected gift of volunteers who showed up without knowledge of the need!
A group from Allianza came with 2 carloads of baked goods, gallons of coffee and live music for the ALL to enjoy, but it was especially appreciated by the clients who drove through. We even had a visit from our Commissioner, Mayra Uribe, who blessed us with the cases of mac & cheese and pasta just a few weeks ago which was used in our giveaway bags today. Then, there were the volunteers who I haven't seen in a loooong time and some who came for the first time!
You may say it was a coincidence, I say it was answered prayer because God knew what we needed even before I asked! It was a great day to witness God's faithfulness to bless 251 families representing 1,037 people. God provided to overflowing!
Thank you to ALL who gave of themselves to make this giveaway wonderful for our community. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with God's richest blessings of good health and joy! Stay safe, Laurie”
Like Deacon Pat Roberts said…”An awesome witness of God's faithful provision.”
Merry Christmas!

Hello Family of Faith.... This message is from Fr Edward and Michele Keyser, Sr Warden: Due to some unforeseen circumstances, we unfortunately are having to cancel the 8:00a service tomorrow. Be assured, that we will let you know as soon as possible when we will restart the 8:00a service. In the meantime, the 9:30a service will go as scheduled; and will be livestreamed for those at home. God's Peace and Blessings to you all!

[11/15/20]   Laurie Schoomaker is thankful for all the assistance from all volunteers:
"Another beautiful day for our November Giveaway. Produce arrived right on time and so did 15 students from Lake Howell H.S. Civitan Club! So awesome to have this group join us and give of themselves today to serve 228 families representing 964 people. Today's clients also received a special food bag containing a delicious 2 lb. Mortadella, corned beef and Carmella vienna sausages as part of our Orange County CARES Grant.
I'm thankful for ALL our pantry volunteers who give of their time, talents and treasure to make our monthly giveaways possible! Until next month... stay safe and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
God bless you, Laurie"

See you next month at December's Food Giveaway...Dec 12th!

Just heard from Laurie regarding tomorrow's Food Giveaway from the Healing Hunger Food Pantry:
Just got word from Second Harvest that our 2 pallets of no-touch produce/dairy will be delivered bright and early at 7am! Good news for the folks who are first in line and missed the delivery last month! Even after those boxes are gone, we picked up lots of beautiful apples and eggs to be given away.

We also received a shipment of meat that was purchased with funds from our CARES grant. This will supplement our groceries and frozen meats from Second Harvest. Our families can expect to be doubly-blessed tomorrow!

I look forward to having the students from the Young Civitan Club of Lake Howell High School volunteering with us this month. I'm asking ALL volunteers to arrive promptly at 7a with closed-toe shoes and masks (of course). However, if you are not feeling well, please sit this one out... there's always another giveaway! See y'all in the am!

we are the world (flashback 80's)

If ever we needed this now!
