    If you like to sing or play an instrument, join us for fun and rehearsals on Tuesday evenings and consider becoming a member of New Life.

Learn about leadership, worship planning and music while having lots of fun and making good friends.  Contact Martin for details.

  • boy scout troop 438, chief seattle council

    Sponsored by Christ the King since the 1950's, Troop 438 under the leadership of Scoutmaster Chris Myers is one of the oldest continuously operating troops in the Chief Seattle Council. Troop 438 is an active, award-winning group for boys and young men.

  • DAILY DEVOTIONS FOR FAMILIES WITH SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN

    Brief Bible reading and thought provoking discussion, with short prayers for each day, delivered to your computer or mobile device.  Written by a Lutheran laywoman and teacher.  A wonderful breakfast or dinner-time opportunity to keep your family in the Word with five minutes a day.


  • nursery - attended childcare during worship

    Families at Christ the King are encouraged to worship together, including the youngest members, but we also recognize that there are times when parents would prefer to have the option of nursery care. Children through age five are welcome in our nursery which is attended by two caregivers during both Sunday services.

  • children's library

    Did you know that Christ the King has a collection of Christian and general books for boys and girls and some for teens and parents, too? You may borrow any of them by signing them out with your name and phone number and the date. Check them out in the Children's Library on the hallway next to the Fellowship Hall.

  • Adventure sunday

    ANNUAL FIRST SUNDAY IN ADVENT EVENT

    Following 9;30am worship, the congregation gathers for lunch and an afternoon of crafts and activities for everyone to begin preparing for Christmas. Everyone is welcome.
