Christ Our King Lutheran Church’s Strategic Plan

Rooted In Christ, Building toward Our Future


“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith,

just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.”  –  Colossians 2:6-7


Rooted in Christ, Building toward Our Future: The Strategic Plan for Christ Our King Lutheran Church is aimed at stewarding and enhancing the ministry and the mission God has given Christ Our King to ensure our congregation is poised to faithfully work in His kingdom both now and into the future. This undertaking is not merely about bricks and mortar; it is a testament to our receiving gifts from God in Word and Worship as well as our joining Him in the Work and Witness to others (the four Ws from our Mission Statement). Below in each of the tabs

are some key points I would like to share with you:

The purpose of this congregational plan is driven by a deep understanding of our roles as stewards of all that God has given us. We are inspired by the faithful examples of Christ Our King’s leaders and members who, for 45 years, have been dedicated to God’s ministry and mission. We are thankful for the gifts God has given us, starting first and foremost with the gift of faith in Jesus Christ. We know God intends for us to invest His gifts for the sake of His kingdom and for our community so that we are strengthened in our mission and service to the Gospel.

May we always walk in Christ Jesus the Lord, rooted and built up in him and established in faith, always abounding in thanksgiving!

(Col. 2:6-7)


In His Service with You,

Pastor Joe Polzin
