Our Pastor



At Christ the King we live by and in God’s grace every day. God’s grace and love gathers us and ties us together. We are a community of believers dedicated to growing in FAITH, LOVE and SERVICE to the God who loves us.  Together we seek to help each other connect with God and recognize our need for that connection.


We gather for worship services that embrace our rich Lutheran traditions while incorporating the gifts of other cultures and contemporary worship leaders. We immerse ourselves in the witness of scripture to inform our interpretation of current events and issues. We celebrate God’s gracious gift of salvation through Jesus Christ and respond in service and advocacy.


Members come to Christ the King with different gifts and abilities; different spiritual and educational backgrounds; various questions, doubts, and expressions of faith; but all are able to participate in the worship life and mission of this congregation.


I invite you to join us as well. Come for a worship service or any of the other educational or fellowship activities held at Christ the King. Feel free to contact me with any questions you have. We are always glad to welcome others as we worship, serve, and grow in faith.
