Christ the King offers many outreach ministries allowing you to serve the Lord!
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” Matthew 25:35-36
The Outreach Ministry mission is to help and support those in need in our community. Outreach provides financial assistance to individuals and supports community organizations involved in providing food, clothing, shelter to those in our community in need, rehabilitation to wounded veterans and human trafficking victims, and Christmas gifts to needy children.
Outreach Ministry sponsors many other community programs and projects throughout the year with numerous opportunities for congregational member involvement such as:
- Forsyth County Family Promise – Participation as a sponsor congregation in providing temporary housing for homeless families.
- Forsyth County’s “The Place” – Collect food for the food pantry and volunteer help.
- St. Patrick’s Day Irish Dinner and Auction – Raises funds to support local community needs.
- Annual Fall Yard Sale – Benefiting a local community outreach program.

- Angel Tree – Provides Christmas gifts for local community children.
- Disaster relief – Support teams when needed working with Lutheran World Relief.
- Wellspring Living – Initiative to End Minor Domestic Human Trafficking

Next Sponsor Week:
APRIL 1-8, 2018
During the week of APRIL 1-8, 2018 we will be hosting families at Christ the King.
Volunteers will be needed to prepare and serve meals; serve as evening hosts to play and mentor the children; and as overnight hosts to assist the families if needed and help get them going in the morning.
We always need donations for breakfast, lunch, fruit, and snacks. Please help replenish our pantry by donating Walmart, Publix or Target gift cards. Purchase them at the Scrip table in the fellowship hall on Sunday mornings and pay down the church mortgage at the same time!
SIGN-UP GENIUS will be live a month before our host week. You will be able to pick your time and dates for the April host week. Join up with a friend. Simply click the button on the left and you will be taken to the website when it is live.
We thank you for your support and if you are interested in volunteering and have not received the training, please contact Mary or Joe Lambert | 678-341-9305.
Evangelism and spreading the gospel through community goodwill is the responsibility of everyone at Christ the King. The Evangelism Ministry works to find meaningful and innovative ways to do this in our immediate community.
LOCAL SCHOOL GOODWILL PROGRAM
A new community project was started in 2017 to spread goodwill to our nearby school teachers by periodically bringing them cookies, coffee and needed school supplies. Everyone is welcome to assist with deliveries or financially as we connect with the community around us.
