Are You Interested in Membership with Christ the King Church?

We’ve necessarily been on a “hiatus” during this season of COVID regarding special in-person worship occasions like baptism, weddings, funerals, and other special events. While we have carefully moved toward conducting more of such occasions, we are mindful that many have expressed a desire to join as members or associate members of Christ the King Church. And some have joined without the public recognition we normally would celebrate.
If you are in either of these groups, take note that on May 23 – Pastor Duane’s final Sunday at CTK – we will receive and recognize new members at the Sunday service. What a grand statement that will be! Continue reading

Pastoral Letter: March 17, 2020

Dear Members and Friends of Christ the King Lutheran Church,

After the counsel provided by our Synod Bishop, as well as medical and government authorities, and with the affirmation of the Christ the King Lutheran Church Congregation Council, we have decided that as of today, all public assemblies, including worship and smaller group meetings, are suspended until further notice.
