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.
Season of Epiphany
During Epiphany, we contemplate the ways that Jesus began to be revealed to the world. On the one hand, Jesus’ birth was made known in the East as the magi returned to their homeland. Within Jesus’ own community, we read stories of his growing identity and sense of mission—we recall his baptism, his miraculous transformation of water into wine at Cana, his preaching in Nazareth, and his mysterious encounter with God known as the Transfiguration.
Signs and appearances of the divine…we read about them in Scripture, and through eyes of faith, we can discern them still. Where is God manifest in our world today? What are the signs that God is active, and bringing healing and hope? May we open our eyes, ears and hearts to behold the ways.
There are a variety of groups that gather regularly for study, discussion and contemplation. Prayer Pack is small group that believes in the power of prayer. It meets regularly in a member's home, to read and contemplate a passage of scripture, and pray. Next, a Young Professionals Group gathers twice per month--once for a fellowship-oriented event, and once in a member's home for a faith-based discussion. A second small group of adults gathers monthly at church following the 10am worship service to read and discuss Michael Foss’ book Real Faith, Real Life: Living the Six Marks of Discipleship. Other ongoing growth groups include a Wednesday Noon Bible Study led by Pastor Katie and a Sunday morning Adult Class led by Scott Simmons and Phil Whitley.
Our worship services are every Sunday at 08:15 and 10:00.
We are located in the village of Pinecrest in a beautiful park-like setting across from Pinecrest Gardens.
