Welcome to Christ the King Lutheran Church!
Sharing God's love within our congregation and throughout the world through worship, learning, service, and community engagement
Let's face it, life is a mix of blessings and struggles. It ranges from simple and straightforward, to challenging, to downright difficult and complex. As Lutheran Christians, we understand these various seasons as part of the mystery of life. At Christ the King we celebrate with God and each other those times of joy and fullness, yet we do not shrink away from the hard questions and complicated parts of our spiritual journeys. In the tradition of Lutheran Christianity, we embrace paradox: we are simultaneously both sinners and saints; we find abundant life when we give ourselves to others; we are subject to the demands of God and also freed by God’s grace, which promises love, forgiveness, and abundant life. As a community of faith we seek to find God in all of life, and look for God’s comforting presence even amidst uncomfortable, difficult, or intractable questions.
Hope, Love, Joy, Peace
This is the season of waiting, anticipating and preparing for the coming of our King!
The psalmist says "I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope." We wait in hope for Christmas, for the gift of healing salvation born into a small child. For our Heavenly Father so loved us that he sent into the world the gift of his only Son, that we, from our place of dark loneliness, might share in the light and warmth of their eternal love. Through the saving work of Jesus, we are welcomed back into the family of God, where we are received with great joy and celebration. Jesus shares with us his gifts of peace, wholeness, forgiveness, righteousness and eternal life. And so we wait with anticipation to give,
"All glory to the Son, Who comes to set us free, With Father, Spirit, ever One, Through all eternity." Amen.
The year long observance of the 500th anniversary of The Reformation has past. ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton has challenged all to consider, "what happens on October 32nd?" In other words, now that we have marked this important occasion with expressions of partnership and dialogue, how will we live into the future?
May the spirit of ecumenism and mutual respect continue, not just with our brothers and sisters in the Roman Catholic church, but across all denominational lines. May we enter into relationship with other faith traditions and discover those truths we share in common. May we find ways to be see Christ in our neighbor, and be Christ to our neighbor, on "October 32nd" and beyond.
