As Christians we are called to live their lives together, as a community bonded by the love of Christ. To that end, CTK offers many ways to get plugged in and be a part of the life of the body. Below are some highlights, and you can find more information in the links throughout this section.
Core Activities: Worship, Fellowship, and Prayer
Word, worship, and fellowship is at the core of who we are. If you're looking to get plugged in, this is where you should start.
Worship is the center of our life together. It's the reason Jesus has called us out of darkness and into his glorious light--to glorify God and enjoy him forever! We have two worship services, Sunday mornings at 11:00 am and Sunday evenings at 6:00 pm. We celebrate the Lord's Supper in the morning service on the 1st Sunday of every month, and in the evening on the 3rd Sunday. Worship Times and Location
CTK offers bible teaching tailored for each stage of life. Preschool meets in the nursery room in the church building. K-5 meets in the church office (117 4th Avenue; teachers will direct your child to the specific room for their age), Middle School and Senior High are on the top floor of the church building, and Adults are on the main floor. Contact: Elizabeth Stahl
Home Fellowship Groups
Bible studies and fellowship groups meet in homes throughout the area. These groups provide a great way to connect with neighbors and friends, to grow in our common faith, and to pray for and disciple one another. You can contact John Erickson if you’re interested in finding a group.
On the first Wednesday of every month our church gathers together for food, fellowship, and prayer. 5:30-6:30 is dinner, usually pizza, and then from 6:30-7:30 we split up--adults gather for a season of prayer and the Youth Group (Middle School and High School) gather for games, singing, and crazy activities. The nursery room is open for younger kids, though there is no official nursery available during this time.
Other Ministries and Ways to Get Involved
Youth Group. We offer programs for Middle School and Senior High students designed to encourage fellowship, family life, and spiritual growth. Our regular meetings are on the First Wednesday of every month (see above), but we also have a number of opportunities throughout the year, including a Winter Ski Trip, Spring Retreat, Summer Missions Trip, Fall Picnic, and intermittent game nights. Contact: Blake Franze.
Women in the Church (WIC). Our mission is to care for women, to integrate new women into the life of the church, and to promote fellowship, mercy, and Bible study opportunities. The WIC Council is composed of five women who are happy to hear your concerns and suggestions as we plan and pray for you. We often are looking for event hosts, people to make meals for a church family in need, and planning or detail help with any of the above. Contact us at or keep your eyes and ears open for announcements in church, email, bulletin or newsletter for ways to get involved or for more information. You can read more here.
Choir and Music. Music is a fundamental component of our worship, and we strive for excellence as we offer our sacrifice of praise to the Lord. “I will sing and make melody with all my being! Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn!” If you are interested in participating in this ministry, either with song or instrument, contact our music director, Bonnie Hoffmann.
First Sunday Potlucks. We regularly feast together immediately after morning worship on the first Sunday of every month. Bring a meal to share (but join us anyway if you forgot!). If you are interested in helping with our food and kitchen ministry, contact Christy Helfand.
Women in the Church (WIC). WIC seeks to assist the women of the church to honor and love God and serve one another in love. Our mission is to care for women, to integrate new women into the life of the church, and to promote fellowship, mercy, and Bible study opportunities. We are often are looking for people to host events, or make meals for a church family in need, or planning and detail help with any of the above. Contact us or by speaking with Dana McGahey.
Men's Book Study. The men meet on the first Saturday of each month from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM in the church office building at 117 E. 4th Ave. If you’d like a copy of the book, or have other questions about this ministry, contact Rich DeLecce.
Nursery. Christ the King offers nursery services for all children under the age of 5 (or 6 for evening services and special services) during all morning and evening worship services, as well as for Sunday School and most special services. Our volunteers are dedicated, caring, and hard workers! Even at a young age our children are forming bonds of fellowship that they will value and rely on for years to come, and our nursery volunteers are dedicated to promoting those relationships. This isn’t just “babysitting,” it’s ministry! If you have questions about how the nursery functions, or would like to serve in this important ministry, contact Maria Signorino.
Colonial Neighborhood Council Food Collection. On the third Sunday of every month we collect food to distribute to the community through the Colonial Neighborhood Council. Your faithful donations of non-perishables are a blessing to our area. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact either Lauren Elban or Michele Eichert.
Greeters and Ushers. Hospitality is important to us! Our greeters and ushers are in charge of welcoming people into our church home and helping out with any needs that come up during the service. If you’re interested in helping this area, contact Charlotte Schmucker.
