Christ The King Lutheran Chapel is part of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. In the mid 1960s, the Michigan District of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod established a full-time campus ministry at Central Michigan University (CMU). The Michigan District constructed a chapel/fellowship center in the heart of CMU’s campus. Christ The King Lutheran Chapel (CTK) was dedicated in 1966. 


Today, Zion Lutheran Church, Mount Pleasant, currently leases the chapel and oversees its operation and maintenance, although the Michigan District still provides partial support. Christ The King is considered to be a major part of Zion’s mission outreach efforts.  


Christ The King Lutheran Chapel is open most weekdays for church members and students to come in and work on homework, rest, pray, eat, visit with friends, and talk with the campus pastor. There are also weekly worship, Bible study opportunities, and events and activities.
