You are cordially encouraged to be involved in the life of our congregation and community this year. Our 2019 Time and Talent Booklet describes the various opportunities available for you to use in completing the survey online.
If you prefer to complete the survey on paper, both the booklets and response forms are available on the table in the narthex. Feel free to take one and return it to the designated basket or to the church office. Thank you for your faithful service to our congregation, our community and the world as God makes us into “a healing place.”
On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, January 20,
Christ the King Church members and friends along with Bishop Mike Rinehart and members of Faith Lutheran Church and our other synod congragations will join the MLK Heritage Society Parade. The parade starts at City Hall at the corner of Lamar and Smith at 10:00 a.m. We will meet up at 9:00 a.m. at a nearby location to be announced.
We will have a banner, a convertible, and individual signs for however many would like to walk the route of 1.5 miles (or you can make your own). Please contact Rebecca if you are interested in joining the parade walkers, representing our Lutheran commitment to the Gospel-Faith-Justice-Welcome. We need an accurate count of participants by January 14 so to ensure enough signs for all.
During Lent, we again join Lutheran World Relief’s Project Promise: Building Kits of Care. 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 goal is to assemble at least 100 LWR Care Kits during Lent.
Here’s our collection schedule:
Anytime: Bath towels (new, light-weight, maximum 52″x27″, dark color recommended)
March 4: Toothbrushes (adult size, in original packaging)
March 11: Combs(sturdy, please! No picks or fine toothed combs)
March 18: Nail Clippers (metal, attached file optional)
March 25: Bars of Soap (each kit includes 2 bars of soap)

This is such an important time at Christ the King Church. We are in our last week of the Fall Campaign of Salt and Light. This Saturday at Taizé worship and Sunday worship, we have the opportunity to re-affirm our membership in the mission of Christ the King Church and to offer our pledges of financial support. The Salt and Light Stewardship Team will follow-up by phone and/or personal visits those members who could neither be present on the 19th/20th nor send in their pledges by mail. All members should have received a final letter, brochure and pledge cards in the mail this week. Extras are available in the narthex and church office. Please see today’s final bulletin insert for further information, too. Thank you for all you do in the name of Christ and please pray that the Holy Spirit will bless this campaign!
