Worship is central to the Lutheran faith, and places special emphasis on the Word of God. We celebrate Holy Communion weekly as a way of remembering and giving thanks for the sacrifices God as made for us. We believe that Jesus Christ is truly present when we gather in faith for this sacred meal. Our services include much joyful noise as we sing together in praise of God, and readings and sermons that teach us about how the Gospel applies to our everyday lives.
The Lutheran faith is a teaching movement. Learning is lifelong, centered on biblical teaching, and fosters our relationships with God and each other. In order to foster this movement, Christ the King offers many opportunities for members of all ages. For a full list of opportunities, check out the Education page.
We certainly know how to make a Joyful Noise! The sound of music reverberates through our sanctuary at Christ the King — voice and handbell choirs, brass groups, and solo instrumentalists. Practices are held on Tuesday evenings: Handbells at 7pm and Voice at 8pm. Everyone is welcome — novice to expert. If you would like to add your own musical talents to our worship, contact either: firstname.lastname@example.org for the voice choir or instrumental opportunities, or email@example.com for the bell choir.
Our Youth Ministry is in a reboot mode and have just begun to gather again. They are not the future of the church; they are the church today! The Youth Group, comprised of young people grades 7-12, participates in local service and outreach opportunities, synod-wide events, national ELCA gatherings, and fun events at CtK.
Local and Global Stewardship
Lutherans are stewards, which means we believe that all of life and health, all possessions and capabilities are, in a sense, on loan from God the Creator. So we keep on learning how to return on God's investment in them. We are connected to God and to the world in our giving of time, talents, and treasures. Christ the King is involved in many local and global stewardship initiatives as an expression of our faith and thanks to God, ranging from the Nashua Area Crop Walk, to providing meals and support to Stepping Stones, to outdoor ministries at Camp Calumet, to global aid through ELCA Disaster Relief and the World Hunger Appeal. For a full list of stewardship opportunities, visit the Community Involvement page.
