As you know, our congregation worked hard last year to create a strategic plan for Christ the King that will carry us through 2015, and the plan was overwhelmingly ratified at our Annual Meeting last November. Our plan’s vision statement is “Christ the King will be a congregational community that is known both by its members, as well as the Cary community, as a leader in outreach, spiritual growth, and fellowship.”
In keeping with this, we are moving forward in faith with our three year, $2.5 million stewardship campaign, Free to Grow, Serve, Give. We at CTK have been through our time of contemplation, but that time is now over, and the time for action in ministry is at hand! Together as a congregation, we move forward in faith to:
We will be very intentional during the early weeks of the campaign not to talk about money. We are very focused on growing spiritually and will focus on God’s gifts to us even as we start to think about returning those gifts back to God through this appeal.
The projects that the Free to Grow, Serve, Give campaign will address include:
Please know that while these projects have been identified, the design phase has not been completed and opportunity for input will be provided once the projects are funded.
This is an exciting time at Christ the King, and as we move toward our 50th year of ministry, and we look forward to what God has in store for us. Armed with the Holy Spirit, the campaign steering committee, Congregation Council, Advisory Boards, an army of committed CTK members over 100 strong, and of course YOU, our success is assured. With your continued help we will be able to move into the next 50 years of ministry, continuing to fulfill the promise of Easter, building God’s Church in our community, and the world.

CTK is a large presence in the center of Cary. The money raised from the Capital Campaign can help us increase the effectiveness of our ministries. First, we will be able to pay off our $1.25 million mortgage, which will free up $90,000+ each year to direct into other ministries. The possibilities there are huge. We will also be able to improve our sanctuary and other parts of our facility to be able to make our services more open, inviting and accessible to everyone. A successful Capital Campaign will give us the freedom to fulfill our responsibility to use our gifts and talents to minister to our community. – John Fleming, Council President
