The youth of Christ the King are excited to present this year's Youth Musical, “Hills & Valleys.” Christ the King has a long history of student created, written, and performed faith-based musicals. This year’s musical follows a week in the life of 3 high school students who navigate the hills and valleys in relationships with their friends, with their family, and with God. The story explores the dynamic nature of living a life of faith in a complex world, and gives us a window into how our youth are experiencing faith in their lives right now.
After 6 weeks of hard work, and many rehearsals, we headed east to take the musical on tour last weekend and had the pleasure of sharing our story with the congregation at Galilee Lutheran Church in Pewaukee, Wisconsin. We had a wonderful stay at Galilee and are so grateful for their congregation as they welcomed us with open arms and grateful hearts and were fully present to hear the message we are spreading with the musical this year.
Staying just outside of Milwaukee, we took full advantage of the chance to explore the city and attend a Milwaukee Bruisers roller derby event, see Mondo Lucha wrestling, visit the Haggerty Art Museum (on the campus of Marquette University), and dine at Safehouse, a spy themed restaurant in downtown. What's YOUR agent name?
Join us in supporting the youth of CtK this coming weekend on February 23, at both our Sunday morning services, 8:30 am and 10:30 am, as well as a final evening performance at 5:30 pm. We can't wait to share this message of God's unwavering love with you!
