On Sunday, November 13, noon, a light lunch will be provided for any inquirers about membership. No classes are required for baptized Christians who wish to join Christ the King Church.

These are exciting times at Christ the King Church, as we begin our Fall stewardship campaign under the theme Salt and Light, culminating with the grand Christ the King Festival Weekend and Dedication Sunday, November 18–20. At worship on October 8 and 9 (Saturday 6:00 p.m.; Sunday 8:30 and 10:50 a.m.), Pastor Duane will share his own story of gratitude and renewal, based on Luke’s account of Jesus healing the ten lepers. Thereafter, we’ll consider what gratitude means for the dedication of our lives as God’s salt and light to the world. How do you add spice to the lives around you? How and when are we light to the world? Continue reading

ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton and William B. Horne II, an ELCA member from Clearwater, Fla., will continue their conversation on racism – a violation of God’s intention for humanity – in another live webcast January 14, at 8 p.m. (CST). Eaton and Horne will be joined by other ELCA members who bring various perspectives on the U.S. criminal justice system. As with the previous webcast, this one will be grounded by two commitments. One is this church’s proclamation of Christ and the confidence this good news brings to set us free from the captivity of racism. The second is this church’s enduring commitment to address the complexity of racism and end discrimination. https://www.elca.org/webcast
