King of Kings is a growing and active church. We have many committees and groups available to help you get involved in the community and in the church. Everyone has a God given talent that can be used to spread God's message. Pray about how you can be used by God, then offer your time and talent by joining a group and becoming active.
"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers."
– Acts 2:42
Below are some of the many ways you can participate and feel like a part of the King of Kings Lutheran Church family.
Board of Elders
The Board of Elders is composed of nominated and elected men of the church who serve as Elders. Elders were assigned in the early church to free up spiritual leaders to concentrate on spiritual issues, and the practice of Elders assisting pastors in care of the congregation continues today. The apostle Paul described the qualifications for elders as “serious, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for gain; they must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. “ Although elders are like all others (sinners and lost without Christ), they should conduct themselves as above reproach, with secure faith in God, and be of sound character.
Elders support our Pastors by providing assistance with the Sacraments, ministering to the members of the congregation, and assisting the Pastors in ensuring that our worship follows the Doctrines and theological tenets of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. Elders also watch out for the welfare of Pastors and their families, and are each assigned a primary responsibility to minister to a portion of our membership, assisting those under their care to remain strong in the faith and help to address issues in their lives with Christian help and encouragement. While each elder has a group of families to support, all elders serve as back-ups for each other.
If you are an adult male member of our church and interested in learning more about the role of Elder, please speak to one of our Pastors or to the Head Elder.
The responsibility of the Fellowship Committee of King of Kings is to promote support of each other and to serve others. To do this we plan and carry out activities to deepen and extend the Christian fellowship among all members of the congregation by providing food and social functions. We desire to promote a means of active involvement by all members.
The purpose of the Outreach ministry is to model Christ’s concern for people, both individually and collectively in our community and beyond. We plan activities and events to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to minister to the needs and concerns of persons outside the congregation in whatever way God calls us.
The Church Property Board exists to maintain buildings and facilities, keeping track of the church's equipment, and keeping insurance policies up to date. This board is also responsible for providing counsel and guidance for the church relative to church building plans, the purchase of real estate and the construction or improvement of the facilities.
Agape means selfless, sacrificial unconditional love, the highest of the four types of love in the Bible. The name Agape was chosen for the women's group of King of Kings to emphasize the foundation of our fellowship, love and service to our Lord. This is a way for the women of the church to get to know each other and to also have fun. We support various groups such as Operation Barnabas, North Georgia Pregnancy Center, Pastor's Pot, a Prayer Shawl Ministry and others. We also have outings such as Christmas Tour of the historic Tate House.
King of Kings has an ongoing Men's Group which meets monthly on a Saturday. They have a good meal, they have a time of fellowship, they study how to apply God's Word in their lives, and they help out where needed in our church family and the wider community.
The purpose of the Mission Committee of King of Kings Lutheran Church is to plan and implement the various activities for mission projects. This will include, but is not limited, to such areas as Cares, North Georgia Pregnancy Center, and LCMS Mission Programs. The work of mission projects, activities and emphasis should encourage the congregation to be committed to mission outreach.
This committee prepares publicity concerning mission projects for our weekly e-blast and worship bulletin. We are also a catalyst to encourage volunteerism for missions.
