Pastor's Renewal Leave
Our Congregation's Time of Renewal
During the summer months of 2021, while Pastor and his family are on leave, and with the ROOTED theme in mind, Christ the King as a congregational family will devote time to reflect and explore our own rootedness in our life and faith.
CtK has a grant writing team (Wanda Ellingson, Tom Gray, Holly Landgren, Jigger Staby and Pastor TIm) working on a propsal to the Lilly Foundation that, if received, will financially assist Pastor Tim, his family, and our congregation with renewal leave activities.
Here are some videos with more information:
How You Can Help
We need your ideas!
What does it mean to you to be ROOTED?
ROOTED within God? Yourself? Your family? Our congregation? Our Community?

When will Pastor's Renewal Leave be?
May 24 – August 30, 2021
Why are we talking about this now?
We are writing a grant to help finance the renewal leave for Pastor, his family, and the congregation. The grant is due April 1, 2020.
Additionally, we want to be prepared as a congregation for our own renewal opportunity.
How much money will we get if we are awarded this grant?
The specific amount depends on what activity/activities the congregation wants to pursue during Pastor’s time of Renewal. Some of the money will go towards pastoral coverage. The congregation can ask for and receive up to $15,000 to cover expenses specific to the congregation’s Renewal plan.
Does the Pastor still get paid while he's gone?
When will we know if we've been awarded the grant or not?
At the end of August, 2020.
What happens if we don't get the grant?
Pastor Tim will still take the time for Renewal. The Financial Oversight Committee and Council are developing plans for this eventuality.
