Elders in Action (or EiA, for short) seeks to provide all-encompassing enrichment experiences for those aged 55 and older. The mission of EiA is to provide social activities, opportunities for volunteer service, community outreach, educational programs, and spiritual growth. So far the group has done everything from visit the American Swedish Institute, volunteer together at Feed My Starving Children, and host guest speakers like Rollie Martinson and Estelle Winnecki. It seems like there’s nothing this group won’t try.

Come to church on Sunday, September 24 to learn about Christ the King’s partnership with Believer Bible Chapel School in Liberia. The demand and need for education in Liberia is great, and BBC school is striving to meet that need.
I am a Lutheran, through and through. I feel fortunate that I was raised in the Lutheran Church because I totally buy into our belief that we are "saved by grace through faith." As a 60+ year old woman, I am proud to believe Lutheran theology. In working with the Pastors in preparing the study book for our Commemoration at CtK, not only has my faith been reinforced, I have learned--again--that Luther's Reformation did not stop in the 1600's. Reforming the church never ends. But now I ask, what am I able to do with my life to encourage the ongoing reformation?
One of my favorites among these slogans was the cry “Semper Reformanda!” While its origins are a bit murky the idea is that we as individuals, as well as the whole church collectively, must always be actively reforming.
