We want it to be public knowledge that we at Christ the King Lutheran Church take seriously that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. The young, the old, the rich, the poor, all of the broken are welcome here. 

We want it to be public knowledge that we are justified by the grace of God, which is a gift through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. 

We welcome all here because we believe that "while we were yet sinners, Christ died for the ungodly." That's us. Christ did not die for us after we showed signs of getting it all together. Christ loved and still shows love to us while we were yet sinners.

Sinners are welcome here. Sinners like you and me and like our neighbors are welcome here. Let us not condemn the world, but let us proclaim to a broken and hurting world, God's forgiveness and grace. 

We want it to be public record that since we are a sinful people that we will not always be as quick to welcome as we should .Let us be quick to admit our sin and seek forgiveness. 

May God give us the grace to welcome and forgive one another as Christ as welcomed and forgiven us.

Worship

What to expect when you attend

Christ the King

Christ the King is a visitor friendly church, we would love to have you join us for a worship service. We have ample parking and there are no steps to negotiate. Most of us arrive a few minutes before the worship service begins so we can greet friends and settle in and prepare to worship. Some dress up a bit and some come in jeans and shorts. We're just glad to see everyone. Our service lasts about an hour, sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less.

We love our children and expect that sometimes they are a little wiggly or noisy. There is a nursery for toddlers and babies available for you at the Saturday service and staffed during the Sunday Service. There is a changing table in the nursery if you need it. 

Our Saturday service is more contemporary. Sunday service is more traditional with the use of hymns sung and we use and order of services from the hymnal. At both services we project the lyrics and responses on a large screen so you don't have to fumble for a bulletin or service book. 

Almost every Sunday, Holy Communion is offered to all who believe that Jesus is present. If you sit in the middle, you can follow the crowd and receive the bread and an individual cup of grape juice or wine.  We are strengthened, forgiven, and blessed through this Sacrament.

If you visit, you won't be asked to stand and introduce yourself to everyone or give a testimony. Many of us are shy and we understand shy people. We want you to feel comfortable. If you are looking for a church home, we hope you will consider Christ the King. If you haven't been to church for a while, we want to encourage you to be courageous and give it a try. Most of us remember the first time we walked into Christ the King and we'll tell you "We're glad we came, and we're glad you're here too!"
