When are services?
We gather for worship at 9:30 a.m., and Second Hour runs 11:00-11:45 a.m. We also have a time of coffee and fellowship between the two.
What should I wear?
You should wear whatever makes you feel comfortable. There is no dress code, written or unwritten, at Christ the King. A lot of our folks wear jeans. Some men wear dress pants and blazers. Some women wear dresses. The pastor usually wears khakis and a sport coat, without a tie.
What is worship like?
Our worship is meant to tell the story of the Gospel each week. We enter into God’s presence by praising his majesty and affirming our faith together. We then spend time confessing our sin together and being assured of God’s pardon in Christ. We respond to that forgiveness with joy, giving our tithes and offerings and sharing the peace of Christ with one another. We then hear from God’s Word about what it means to follow Jesus in our lives. We end each service by receiving God’s blessing and being sent into the world as pictures of his grace.
On the first Sunday of each month, we receive the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper.
You can get a feel for our worship by looking at this sample Order of Worship.
Can I take Communion (the Lord’s Supper/Eucharist)?
If you are a baptized member of a church that preaches the Gospel, you are welcome to receive the Lord’s Supper at Christ the King Church.
What is the music like at Christ the King?
We sing songs and hymns from a wide variety of times and places at Christ the King. It is not uncommon to sing a hymn from the early church, a modern praise song, and a recently “re-tuned” hymn all in the same service. We believe that the chief instrument in worship is the congregation’s voice, so we strive to use songs that are easy to sing even if unfamiliar.
We desire our music to be congregational singable, theologically faithful, culturally accessible, and emotionally honest.
What is the preaching like?
At Christ the King Church, we take the Bible very seriously. Sermons seek to explain the Biblical text in a way that helps us understand ourselves and Jesus more fully. Sermons also seek to help us respond appropriately to God’s grace in our lives. They usually last around 25 minutes. You can listen to recent sermons here.
