We celebrate the Lord's Supper every Sunday. All who are baptized and believe that Jesus Christ is really present in, with, and under the forms of bread and wine are invited to commune with us.
In general, we follow the liturgies of the Evangelical Lutheran Worship. On the second Sunday of the month, our liturgical setting is Now the Feast and Celebration.
Children are always welcome at worship. A cry room is available at the back of the sanctuary, if needed. A nursery is provided during both services.

On this Sunday we will incorporate a healing service within our worship. All who sense the need for God's healing in any aspect of their lives may join in prayer for others and themselves. Each person may come to receive a word of blessing and prayer and the laying on of hands from Pastor Connie at a station at the entrance of the sanctuary. This particular Sunday was selected because it is the lesser festival of St. Luke, who identifies himself as the physician and his gospel reveals to us the healing power of Jesus Christ.
Onthis Sunday we will have a table of remembrance for those who have died this past year. If you would like to include a loved one in this remembrance please bring in a picture to the office and we will place their picture with a candle on the remembrance table. If you want your loved one's name lifted up in prayer this Sunday, please contact the office through phone or e-mail.
They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share, thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life that is really life. 1 Timothy 6:18
This letter that is written to Timothy was also meant to be heard beyond to a larger crowd. The writer is concerned about leadership. There are many warnings against false teachings and encouragement to hold on to the faith, to exhibit good conduct, and order the church in such a way that all of this can be accomplished. Our theme verse sums up very well these ideas that we are workers in the kingdom of God who are generous and ready to share. In this sharing comes the disciplineof checking our relationship with the physical things of this world.
Spend some time with this passage and pray for the Holy Spirit’s guidance as you make your promises as to how you will share what you have with God and this community of faith. On Sunday, Oct. 11, when the offering plate comes around, offer your promise into God’s hands as you turn in your time and talent response and pledge card. Take a step of faith as you entrust what it important to you into God’s hands and this community.
Gift cards will be available by the next Thursday at the church office or can be picked up at the Kings Kash table between services the following Sunday. Thank you to everyone who participated!
Remember the inspiring and joyful time that was had by all last Nov. packaging food for 8011 patients in African ebola hospitals??? Well, we're doing it again Nov. 15th! We won't know where our food will go this year until closer to Nov., but there is always need somewhere in the world!
We will again run 4 packaging lines for one hour between services on that Sunday! At $435 and 15 workers per line, we will need a total of $1740 and 60 workers! We are over half way to our goal. Our noisy offerings in Oct. and Nov. will go for this project or you can also label your blue offering envelopes "Kids Against Hunger" and place them in the offering plate on Sunday mornings. There is a sign up sheet for workers in the Narthex (welcome area)!
There will be no Sunday School that Sunday, as we are hoping all Sunday School children/teachers/parents will sign up to help, as well as JH/SH youth! Let's fire up, Christ the King family, to use our hands to do God's work! :)
Join us in the parking lot of Christ the King for trunk or treat. Move from trunk to trunk, collecting treats and meeting your neighbors at CTK. Then mosey on into the church for more activites like face painting, games and much more.
