Our Ministries

Christmas mission

Christ the King Lutheran Ministries

Christ the King Lutheran Church, LCMC, in the Riverchase community of Hoover, is honored to offer a range of ministries to nurture your personal faith walk with God through Christ.  In addition, to the specific ministries below, we are always reaching out to veterans, shut-ins, people at restaurants, gas stations, and in the streets. In sum, our heads are always on the swivel looking to share Christ’s love in words and deeds.

Sunday School
Sunday School at CtK is a great chance to connect and get to know the members of our church. There's something for everyone, including preschoolers, youth, individuals, families and seniors. We would love the honor of helping you find the perfect group. Sunday School classes begin at 9:20 a.m. each week, between the 8:00 a.m. and 10:40 a.m. worship services.

Dr. Rosemary Johnson leads our team of worship leaders, including an adult choir, praise band, children groups, adult handbells and more. We offer traditional music at our 8:00 a.m. service and contemporary music at our 10:40 a.m. service.

Youth & Children
Susan Dearing is our Youth Education Director. Her ministry team is committed to helping your children walk closer to God and know they are chosen and loved through Christ. Please join us on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, and also learn about other activities. Our weekly S.O.S. ministry is very popular with children all summer and during Christmas Break.

Senior Adults
We have many seniors who enjoy fellowship every Sunday and Wednesday. We also visit our senior shut-ins once/month with communion, singing and more.

Prayer and Healing
God speaks of 5 kinds of healing in the Bible: miracles, the body’s own healing, knowledge through doctors, acceptance (like St. Paul’s thorn), and healing in heaven. We never know what God has in store, but God invites us to ask believing. We offer prayer intentionally in various ways daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly, including 4 times a year in each of our Sunday worship services.

Missions and Outreach
At Christ the King, we’re thankful for Christ's call to live out the Great Commission. As part of LCMC (Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ), we enjoy God's priority for us to spread the gospel of Christ in all we do.  In accord with Acts 1:8 and 8:1 we have congregational, local, regional, and global missions.

Both the Missions committee and Evangelism/Disciple-making committees would like to share with you some of the ministries that our congregation enjoys to serve in our surrounding community and to partner with our community agencies.

Jail Ministry
We bring the message of God's saving grace to inmates of Jefferson County jails in downtown Birmingham and Bessemer. Training and materials are provided.

Christian Service Mission
CSM has a huge warehouse in downtown Birmingham and can always use people to sort donations. They have many seasonal programs where they reach out to the community for Mother's Day, Thanksgiving, etc. This would be a great opportunity for you as an individual or your small group to work on a local mission on a regular basis. There is always something to be done.
