Deacon Ben Remmert
Grace and peace be with you from our Risen Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen
We welcome back everyone from a wonderful celebration last Sunday of our Lord’s victory over death and the grave. This week as I was reading the texts and preparing for today, I could not help to get caught up into the excitement of the movie Avengers: End Game. As many of you know I a huge fan of the super hero genre of movies and have been collecting and reading comic books for the last 25 years. Growing up, I found that comic books were the medium to help me learn the language of my Christian faith. This previous year marked the 10 year anniversary of Marvel movies with over 22 films that connect to one big story. It has been such a joy to connect with younger fans and I even get special calls from friends and family members that ask me questions about super hero origins or do the movies really follow along with the comic book series.

Good Friday reflection – April 19, 2019
Karin Liebster,Associate Pastor
Dear sisters and brothers, on this holy night, God has gathered us around the tree of the cross. We enter deeper yet into the mystery of God’s love and salvation, which -by grace alone- is meant for us and our broken humanity. Continue reading
Duane H. Larson, Senior Pastor
Based on Luke 24:1-12
Today we thank and praise God for the most important act of all creation, raising Jesus Christ from the dead. This is no small thing, even if our daily lives imply so. It is no common thing, even if it echoes many myths. It is no trivial thing, because the one who was raised from the dead is he whom humanity crucified. Continue reading
On May 19 at 12:30 p.m. all who are interested in learning more about Christ the King Church’s ministries and community are invited to a luncheon with the pastors. On June 9, Pentecost Sunday, we will receive all who would like to join themselves to the mission of Christ the King Church as new members.
During Lent, we again join Lutheran World Relief’s Season of Hope appeal. Each week, we collect a different item that will be used to assemble Personal Care Kits that give people around the world tools to stay healthy in life’s most challenging situations.
Our Sunday collection schedule is below, but we will gratefully receive items every Sunday, especially towels.
When emergencies like natural disasters or conflict arise, many families must flee their homes, leaving their belongings behind. When they arrive in a refugee camp or other place of safety, they are scared, vulnerable and dirty from the travel. The simple items included in a Personal Care Kit allow them to wash away the dirt and sweat, with the fresh sent of soap and the softness of a towel as reminder of someone’s care and concern for them in their plight.
Our goal is to assemble 100 LWR Care Kits during Lent. Drop items off in the narthex or church office. Here’s our collection schedule:
- April 14: Bars of Soap (each kit includes 2 bars of soap)
Everyone is invited to join the Luther League in assembling our Personal Care Kits after the Good Friday service on April 19.
