Created to be...

Pastor Nate and Vicar Sommer will be starting a new sermon series, “Created To Be”.  We will learn more with each sermon but we know we are created members of the Christ the King Family, all connected together by our faith.


With this thought in mind we would like to make garland for our altar area of fabric or ribbon, from each member or family.  Pick a piece of fabric from a favorite old shirt or sheet or purchase a small piece of something you like.  (We will also have fabric available for those who forget.  Thank you quilters.)  Ribbon is also acceptable.  The fabric should be approximately 4” x 28”.


Come join with your Christ the King family and “tie one on” in the best sense of the word!  The kick off date is April 28th!!!  P.S. Kids…Disney prints are welcome and accepted!


Created to Be theme: We have been created to be ourselves. Created by the Holy One. Since the last time the ELCA came together for an ELCA Youth Gathering, our young people have experienced several major life events. Still today, we are experiencing an ongoing public health crisis mixed with an economic and political crisis. However, we can rest assured that we are created to be in relationship with one another.


We are created to be brave, to show up with an open mind and heart, willing to be challenged.

We are created to be authentic, to bring our whole selves and know that we are loved by our Creator.

We are created to be free, to be transformed by the gospel.

We are created to be disruptive, to work for justice for all our siblings.

We are created to be disciples, to be sent out into the world to love our neighbor just as we are loved by God.


Our host city, New Orleans, has always been its true, authentic self. Our theme, “Created to Be,” highlights the arts, music and soul of this beautiful, vibrant and resilient city. New Orleans was built to host and be a city where all God’s children come together.


We plan to dive deeper into justice, mental health and anti-racism conversations throughout the Gathering. These are hard conversations, but our church desperately needs to have them. We also hope to foster relationships and be a sanctuary for one another. We are saint and sinner simultaneously, and we need forgiveness when we aren’t or can’t be brave, authentic, free, disruptive disciples.
