Welcome to Mount Pleasant and Central Michigan University!

"Greetings, dear Students!  The Lord be with you – we at Christ The King Lutheran Chapel are here to serve you.  The most important thing we provide is the grace and forgiveness of Jesus Christ in Word and Sacrament ministry.  You are always welcome to join us for worship services where you will hear the Word of God and have the opportunity to receive the Lord’s Supper.  Christ The King Lutheran Chapel is your “Lutheran Church home away from home.”  You don’t have to become a member to worship here, nor do you need to transfer from your home church to be a part of our community here.  Christ The King Lutheran Chapel is a joint ministry of the LCMS Michigan District and Zion Lutheran Church, Mt. Pleasant, MI.  


Fellowship opportunities abound at Christ The King and you are invited to dive in and get to know fellow Christians, find opportunities to grow in your faith and friendships, and even to serve others in need.  LCMSU – the campus ministry initiative of our church body – is a nation-wide network of Lutheran campus ministries.  Our chapter is CTK-LCMSU at Central Michigan University, and it is a Registered Student Organization at CMU.  LCMSU meets on Sunday evenings for Bible Study at 7:30pm, followed by a meeting around 8:15pm.  One Sunday a month our Bible study is replaced by a sung service of Evening Prayer.  Throughout the year, the group goes on some trips, retreats, attends some conferences, and engages in a wide variety of service projects and fellowship events.


As one campus pastor says, “College is tough.  You need Jesus.  We’re here to help!”  I’m Zion’s senior pastor, but until we are sent another pastor to serve as campus pastor, I’m here for you.  My hours in the building change somewhat from week to week, but I try to be here for Monday lunch and the rest of that afternoon, and try to get here for some or all of Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.  You can stop by to chat, and if you’re facing struggles, have issues, need to vent, would like to pray, receive some other pastoral counsel – that’s what I’m here to do!  If you ever need to get a hold of me and I’m not at the chapel, feel free to email me.  God bless and keep you always!"
