Welcome to the official website of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Memphis Tennessee!  We love meeting our guests and visitors face to face but realize that in today's world many first visits are not personal and we are thrilled you have found your way to our website. We hope you will find helpful information as to what we do and who we are.


In 1959 a small group of people with the blessing of the LCMS planted Christ the King Lutheran Church in East Memphis on Park Avenue.

There was a little white house (used for worship services) with a dirt driveway leading to it and lots of overgrown trees, bushes and weeds. Over the next 35 years surrounding property was purchased, a Sanctuary was built to replace the little white house, a preschool and elementary school were established and our membership increased. Today, we have a beautiful Sanctuary dedicated in 1986, an updated Preschool built in 2001, and a wonderful Elementary School (K-8). Christ the King has been shepherded by Pastor Carl Schrader, Pastor Bruce Zagel, Pastor Jeff Stephens, and is currently led by Pastor Chuck Neugebauer and Pastor Mark Goble. We have come a long way in 64 years and by the grace of God we will continue to grow and bring the love of Jesus Christ to all.


Christ the King is located within the I-240 Loop in Memphis, Tennessee.
