A Big Day!

Sunday, May 17 is a very big day!

Sunday, we have several celebrations happening during worship. During the first service, we will celebrate the Baptism of William Jonotta, son of Peter and Emily Jonotta. The bell choir will be playing at that service, too!  In the second service, we'll celebrate with eight of our youth as they affirm God's work for them in Holy Baptism.  We'll recognize educational leaders in our congregation. We will also install Christine Shander as our Christian Growth Coordinator.  A celebratory brunch in honor of Christine's installation will be held between services in the Great Hall. This will be a great time for you to visit with Christine. It is also a means to celebrate that we are meeting long held goals of the congregation: the calling of a lay professional to work with youth, families, and people of all ages.  The other big event of the day is the 2:00 p.m. organ concert being presented by Art Jaehnke.  

Installing Christine

There's food involved!

Sunday, we'll install Christine Shander as our Christian Growth Coordinator. She will be installed at both services.  Between services, a brunch will celebrate this important milestone in our ministry. For several years our congregation has dreamed of calling somebody to serve among people of all ages, with a special focus on youth and families. This dream has come true. This new staff position reflects our commitment to strong ministry for young folks.  Join us Sunday in welcoming Christine! This expansion of our ministry is supported by your ongoing and generous contributions to the work of God through this congregation. Thank You!

Youth Affirming Baptism

Discipleship Training Youth 


Sunday, eight youth will affirm the work of God in their lives through Holy Baptism. They will participate in the rite of "Affirmation of Baptism" at the second service. Those affirming their faith will be Katie Bonesho, Kurtis Bostrom, Cole Roecker, Chase Brock, Jack Palmer, Joey Hollister, Brendan Danielson, and Elizabeth Mantey

Art Jaehnke in Concert

At CTK's Organ


Sunday, May 17, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. at Christ the King Lutheran Church, Art Jaehnke will present an organ concert on the beautiful Radonovich Organ of Christ the King. Art is the director of the Sanctuary Choir and the Royal Bells at the Church. He has been studying organ since the age of nine and has played at various churches most of his life. Classical favorites by Bach, D' Aquin, Mendelssohn and Widor will be played along with a Concerto for organ and brass quartet by Dutch composer, Marius Monnikendam. The second half of the program features music from the era of the grand theatre organ.

Thanking Education Staff

Sunday, Second Service


Many people in our congregation work together to bring life to our education ministries. People serve in Sunday Schoo, they help lead Discipleship training, provide ministry in the nursery, and serve as teachers and staff at All God's Children Preschool.  As the year draws to a close for these ministries, we'll thank folks for work well done. The work we do together matters. In our educational ministries, we help people grow in faith in our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Each week, you are involved in this ministry, too. Your regular gifts help support the work we do!  Thank you to everybody!

Summer Worship Schedule

Times are a-changin' for a few months


Summer is here and with it comes a couple shifts to our weekend ministry schedule. Beginning Sunday, May 24, we will have only one service each Sunday. It will begin at 9:00.  The following weekend, Saturday, May 30, we will begin our Saturday Services, at 5:00 p.m. They will continue until August 30. Remember to worship - it's the central activity of the Christian life. In it God comes to us through the Word proclaimed and the Sacraments celebrated.
