Experience a Peaceful Healing During Contemplative Worship

Saturdays at 6:00 p.m.
submitted by CTK members Larry Foust and Christine Wagener

Christ the King Lutheran Church distinguishes itself in many ways, one of which is its commitment early every Saturday evening to an ecumenical form of worship created in the 1940’s by Roger Schütz in France after the occupation by Nazi Germany had ended. The Taize approach to worship is soft, quiet, meditative, and peaceful. The music, albeit sung in many languages, emphasizes simple biblical phrases and is repeated in a soothing fashion. It is yoga, marathon running, blood pressure treatment, and anti-anxiety medication all rolled into a one hour shared worship service before your Saturday evening festivities begin. Come and experience it. Relax. Wrap yourself in its comfortable arms. Come and experience God’s Peace and healing in a new way.

Praying Life Lenten Vespers

Wednesdays, 6:30 – 7:15 p.m.

Join us in reflecting on and experiencing the psalms for Lent at Lenten Vespers.


  • March 27 – Body (Psalm 63)
  • April 3 – Joy (Psalm 32)
  • April 10 – Harvest (Psalm 126)

After worship, there will be two opportunities to go deeper in the reflective process: caring conversation with healing blessing and anointing will be offered in the nave (two stations); a 45 minute group conversation about the psalm and presentation for each week will take place in the parlor on the second floor.
