Dear Friends in the Risen Lord Jesus Christ

Christ the King Lutheran Church is a welcoming congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) – Southeastern Synod.  Established in 1990, CTK has grown to over 600 members, having come here from all parts of the United States and all walks of life.  We have a wide age spectrum and provide ministry to all ages.  We worship in both traditional and contemporary styles using various worship resources, including Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW) and Lutheran Book of Worship (LBW).  Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday at all services and special mid-week services are held during Advent and Lent.  Our mission is simple and clear: Glorify God, spread the Word, and love one another, proclaiming the story of Jesus to all people in word and deed.  We invite you to come be a part of this exciting venture where you will find a family of love and caring.

Yours in Christ

The Reverend Dr. James A. Clark,  Pastor

FAQs about worshiping for the first time at Christ the King.

We strive to be welcoming and to make it convenient and comfortable for you to visit our church. We want you to experience the inspirational music, encouraging messages, friendly people, and inviting atmosphere that our members enjoy each week. We hope your first experience makes you want to return, but we also know that your first time at a church brings up some questions. How do I get there? What should I wear? What’s available for my family?

Here is a quick look at what you can expect.

For driving directions to Christ the King click MAP to link to Google Maps and insert your address for directions.
We are more concerned that we meet your spiritual needs than with what you wear. Though you may see people dressed in suits or dresses, most of our congregants dress more casually. Most of our young people wear the same clothes at church that they wear at school.
At the doors, we have greeters who will help you find the Welcome Desk. At the Welcome Desk we can answer any additional questions, help you find the Nursery, or show you where the Activity Bag and story book station is in the welcome area that you can choose from to keep young children occupied, if needed, during the service.

As you enter the Sanctuary, an usher will give you a service bulletin with the entire Service Order printed in it. In some services we use the red hymnal in the pew rack for singing the hymns. There are Bibles in the pews for your use to follow along in the lesson readings. At Christ the King, you can expect a church that glorifies God, spreads the Word and loves one another.

Holy Communion, offered at all worship services every Sunday and at specific seasonal services, is open to all baptized Christians, regardless of your denominational background.  Children and unbaptized adults who have not received instruction in Holy Communion may come forward to receive a blessing.
A free, staffed nursery is provided for children up to age 4 during the 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. worship services and the Discipleship Sunday School Hour.

Hours: 8:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. every Sunday. The Nursery is the first room in the Education Building on the other side of the Fellowship Hall.

Family is at the heart of everything we do at Christ the King. The atmosphere at Christ the King is warm and inviting where everyone feels welcome. Whether you’re single or married, raising a family, or an empty-nester, teenager or adult, you will find friendly people with whom you can relate and enjoy spending time.

At Christ the King, children are recognized as the gift God intended them to be. That same attitude is reflected in the ministries we provide children from birth though high school. Both the children and the youth ministries are housed in the Education building in an environment that’s comfortable and inviting. Our adult ministries also include fellowship groups for Bible study, fellowship, mission work, and accountability.

We invite you to become a part of the family of faith at Christ the King.
