ONGOING VOLUNTEER NEEDS

The Generosity Effect

The Happiness Lift

The more people volunteer, the happier they are.  Compared with those who never volunteer, the odds of being very happy rose:

 

7% Among those who volunteer monthly

12% Among those who volunteer every 4 to 4 weeks

16% Among those who volunteer weekly

 

Get involved.  No matter your age, you can benefit from donating your time to a worthy cause.  If you are looking for a new volunteer opportunity checkout this booklet.

Dear Christ the King Member,

 

Congratulations on being a member of Christ the King Lutheran Church!  We thank the Lord of the Church that he brought you to the congregation.  We rejoice that you are part of the family in this place and we can’t wait to see the adventures our God has in store for us in the years to come!

 

The mission of the congregation is simple and practical:

 

Chris the King Lutheran Church exists to develop committed Christians.  We exist to help people come to KNOW Christ, to GROW in Christ, to SERVE Christ, and to SHARE Christ.

 

Our congregation does not exist to maintain the status quo.  This is not a group of people who are committed to remaining comfortable at all costs.  We are an active and engaged part of the Body of Christ.  We do our best to serve our Lord and fellow man.  In short, you are part of a group of people who act on their faith, not recline in it. 

 

In the pages of the packet you have found information concerning a majority of our activities, servant opportunities, and ministry areas.  We hope that you will be motivated to jump in and fully participate in the vibrancy of the mission here in this place.  If you have any questions about what we do, when we do it, why we do it, or how you fit, do not hesitate to contact Pastor Lehenbauer, myself or any of the ministry leaders here at Christ the King.  Once again, we thank God that you are here and we are looking forward to serving alongside you!

 

Your Fellow Servant,

Rev. Kristopher M. Morris
