Stewardship 2017-11-02T16:44:38+00:00

The mission of the Stewardship Team is to help God’s people at Christ the King grow in their relationship with God through the generous use of the time, talent, gifts, finances and blessings God has entrusted to them.

The Stewardship Team is focused on providing spiritual enrichment messages throughout the year to help members understand the gifts that God has so graciously provided, highlight opportunities to share these gifts, and develop the desire to give back to God in helping others.  We encourage the participation of all our members to share their gifts of time, talent and treasure.

Christ himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together. Col. 1:17

The ongoing 2017/18 Stewardship Initiative focuses on bringing together the pieces of who we are as a congregation–Together in Faith, Together in Christ, and Together in Love.

What is stewardship? Simply stated, stewardship is using the gifts God has given us to do the things God calls us to do. Did you know that the Bible deals with our possessions in over 2,100 verses? Stewardship is discipleship — all we have, all we are, belongs to God. Spiritual benefits of being a good steward are a deepened trust in God; reordering of personal priorities; and experiencing God’s abundance in providing for your needs.

Giving is the result of understanding what it means to live a life of stewardship. It is essential because it involves putting God first in our lives.

In what ways can we put God first? One way is to spend time with God in a daily quiet time with him. Another way to put God first is to trust Him to take care of us. Trusting comes before giving. Sometimes it is easier to trust God for our eternal salvation than it is to trust Him to give us this day our daily bread. However, Christians know that if we trust in God and live according to his will, he will take care of all our needs.

Scrip Program

In 2009 Christ the King implemented this program of selling gift cards in which the church gets a small percentage of each card sold. The money we get from this program goes directly to mortgage debt reduction. Since 2009 we have contributed over $64,000 as direct debt payoff.  The team always needs volunteers to man the tables on Sunday morning and help with the program bookkeeping.

Kroger no longer participates in the Scrip Program with the sale of Kroger gift cards, but you can still give to Christ the King through the Kroger Community Rewards program.

Whenever you use your Kroger Plus card for Kroger purchases, a percentage is given back to Christ the King, but you need to enroll with the program in order for this to happen. These monies, just like the profits from our Scrip sales goes directly to pay down the principal on the mortgage.

How to enroll in the Kroger Community Rewards program:

  1. Go to and sign in to your account. If you don’t have an account, you will need to set one up.
  2. After you sign in, go the the COMMUNITY menu and click on “Community Rewards” in the drop-down menu.
  3. Follow the steps to find and select CHRIST THE KING LUTHERAN CHURCH. Use our organization number – 80377 – to quickly find us.
  4. Designate “Christ the King Lutheran Church” as the organization that you would like to receive your rewards.

That’s it! Every time you scan your Kroger Plus card, Kroger gives back a percentage to Christ the King. If you have any problems navigating the site, please contact the church office at 770-889-5328.
