Volume 61 Issue 7-8
Grace and peace to you in the name of our Risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Below is the Mission and Vision Statement of Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It is worth a read, followed by reflection of how we as Christ the King, and we as individuals are living into the Mission and Vision daily.
Forgiveness and reconciliation – We are reconciled to God by God's forgiving mercy. Forgiveness and reconciliation flow from what God has made us to be in Jesus Christ and what God is doing with us in the world. As a people of God, we embody forgiveness in speech, action and relationships, and our ministry in reconciliation is foundational.
Rev. Ray Waespi
Council President's Corner
Hope you are settling into the summer season and enjoying the warm weather. Many thanks to Dr. Bloomquist and Jim Sepeda assisting us with Sunday services during Pastor Waespi's vacation in June. Thanks also to the Choir under the direction of Diane Tiller and the Praise Ensemble under the lead of Jim Sepeda these past 9 months – may you all enjoy your well deserved summer break.
The Council and Call Committee continue to be working hard towards the goal of achieving a permanent Pastor for our congregation. It is an arduous process to say the least but we hope to be bringing you additional news in the next couple of months. Again, thank you for your patience. The goal is to have a Congregation Meeting in September in lieu of our June meeting.
The Cup Ministry for new guests is going well – thanks, Pastor Waespi, for implementing this great idea. If anyone would like to volunteer to assist, please let me know.
The Property Committee is working on the replacement of the parking lot lights with LEDs among their many other projects. The light replacement project is tentatively scheduled for August.
Yours In Christ

Backpack Project 2019 We are again going to provide Tri-City Volunteers with backpacks filled with school supplies. THANK YOU for your support of our Backpack Project! Last year we completed a record number of 120 backpacks filled with school supplies – 40 each for Elementary School, Middle School and High School students. We started the project in 2009, with a donation from Thrivent and donated 26 backpacks to Tri-City Volunteers. To date we have donated a total of 733 backpacks! Our CTK Backpack Project is so successful because of the joint efforts of so many people who donated gifts of time and money. There are special envelopes in the narthex for your contributions. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. If you would like more information, you are welcome to contact Bonnie Immeker or Roseanne Lawrence.
Everyone is welcome! We look forward to seeing you.
