Fellowship is identification with the body of Christ. As Christians, we need to develop relationships with, and care for, one another. The Fellowship Ministry Team is responsible for coordinating programs and activities that encourage and support developing relationships so that the congregation of Christ the King becomes a true Family of God.
The first event of the year is a snow tubing event at Green Acres Recreation in Lake Elmo.
The 2nd annual Game Night was held this year. The event was attended by much less people than usual, possibly due to such nice weather outside. Participants played men vs. women game of Jeopardy—a “Christ the King 100th Anniversary Edition. This proved successful in boosting knowledge of the history of Christ the King and created some fun, lively debate.
NIGHT AT THE TWINS:
CTK partners with St. Stephens Lutheran Church for the Lutheran Night at the Twins. A bus provides transport to and from the Stadium, and a crowd from CTK enjoyed friendship and fellowship while taking in the game.
RALLY DAY PICNIC:
The annual Rally Day picnic is held in September where food from Von Hanson’s is served. Activities are provided for the kids and adults such as a bouncy castle for kids to jump in, bocce ball, marshmallow golf and a cake walk.
The annual hay ride is held at Pine Tree Apple Orchard in October. Members of the congregation ride on the hay wagon around the apple orchard, pick their own pumpkins from the vine in the pumpkin patch and enjoy a delicious apple right off the tree before riding the hay wagon back to the start. The group then enjoys a bonfire with hot dogs, s'mores, apple cider and good fellowship.
The annual progressive dinner is held on the first Saturday in December. Everyone meets to share appetizers and punch at church, then spreads out to three host sites for a delicious dinner. Later, the group reassembles at church to finish the night with dessert.
