At Christ the King welcome is not simply something that is said the first time someone enters the sanctuary or joins online on a Sunday morning. Welcome is something that is extended to everyone, no matter where they started their life, or their day. It is so central to our identity that it is on our altar: We all belong, Welcome. As God welcomes us, we strive to include and support others as we seek a deeper relationship with Jesus and each other.
Christ the King is an Episcopal church that worships in the Anglican tradition. Our Sunday morning service is from the Book of Common Prayer, Rite II, and includes Holy Communion every week as well as multiple scripture readings, lively singing, a dedicated choir, creative preaching, periods of silence and faithful prayers.
As God’s people gathered for worship, we come from all over the globe, and from around the corner. Christ the King is multicultural, and embraces people of all abilities, education, employment status, political affiliation, gender/sexual orientation, and theological perspective. Perhaps because of our differences, we honor and value diversity, while seeking transformative spiritual growth for ourselves as individuals and as a community.
Christ the King also is dedicated to engaging with and supporting neighbors in need. The RISE ministry of CTK has several active projects, including the RISE food distribution, RISE Mother/Baby program; RISE Community Events; RISE Summer Camp in a bag for children. RISE is actively seeking to connect and form new partnerships, working with others to overcome the challenges of food insecurity, language barriers, insufficient housing, under-employment, transportation limitations, racism, and the trauma of economic insecurity.
