Where Christ Is King – All Are Welcome

God’s Grace for God’s People 

 

Upcoming Events: 

MAY AT CHRIST THE KING LUTHERAN CHURCH

 

During the month of May, THE DAY OF ASCENSION starts our celebration as we remember and prepare for the gift of the Holy Spirit.  On Thursday May 5th we celebrate the Ascension of our Lord. On May 14th/15th, we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  Christ told us in John 16:7:”…it is to your advantage that I go away.”  The work of redemption is completed, now the work of evangelization takes place: Preaching the Good News of eternal life that comes through faith in Jesus.

 

Also important to note: Mother’s Day is May 8th. We get to show appreciation to our parent who gave us our earthly life.  May ends with Memorial Day, May 30th.  This is our common celebration to appreciate the human sacrifice of our Brother’s-in-Arms for the protection of our nation and our freedom to share the Apostolic Faith of the Christian Church and worship in peace. This Apostolic Faith is the journey that we want you to join with us at Christ the King Lutheran Church!
