Midweek Lenten Series  Worship at Noon and 6:30pm

In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Christ the King is partnering with four other ELCA congregations in Bloomington this Lent to take a fresh look at one of Martin Luther’s most enduring works, The Small Catechism. Each week, you’ll have the opportunity to hear a different pastor talk about how each of the five chief parts of the catechism impact and guide our faith and life today. 
 3/22 – Pastor Erik Sevig, Baptism     · 3/29 – Pastor Siri Strommen, The Ten Commandments     · 4/5 – Pastor Rory Philstrom, The Lord’s Prayer
