Exciting things are happening at Christ the King. It’s our Jubilee and we are celebrating 60 years in ministry together. The founders of CtK had a long-term vision and made long-term investments setting the stage for the amazing things that have happened in doing God’s work over the years. We now look forward to the next 60 years of CtK. Long-term vision and investment will again set the stage for CtK to continue to do God’s work.
We have an opportunity to make a long-term investment in solar energy, reducing energy costs and preserving the environment that God gave us for the next 30+ years. As Christians, we need to care for God’s creation and preserve the environment for future generations at Christ the King.
The Property Committee of Christ the King, of which I am a member, has spent countless hours in the last few years reducing energy costs. We are stewards of a large church building with many lights, furnaces, and air conditioners. In response, we have installed energy-efficient LED lights, put timers on bathroom and hallway lights, and replaced HVAC systems with higher efficiency models.
After thorough study by the Property Committee, we see solar as a long-term investment we need to make to further reduce energy costs and help our environment. Let’s take the next step in Christ the King’s future and celebrate our Jubilee by going SOLAR! Please attend the congregational meeting on November 7 and vote in favor of this exciting project.
