Work at Christ the King Lutheran Church at 1114 17th St. SW in Jamestown was recently completed.

The siding was peeling, the paint was spotty and some of the windows were cracked.

Members of the church and volunteers from North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota worked to make repairs. The siding came down, the windows and doors came out. New siding, windows and doors were installed, trim work was done, the foundation painted, and a new sign installed.

"We are thankful for each worker — volunteers and members — who did this to help us reach out to our community with God's word with its message of forgiveness and joy," said the Rev. Wayne Fischer, pastor of the church. "We are hoping that members of our community will stop by and learn and worship with us."

With the new front doors, Fischer said the entry is more welcoming and inviting. The church's motto is "Proclaiming Christ Crucified and Victorious." That is the heart of the church's message — it is all about Jesus whose death paid for the sins of the world, then rose in victory over death and the devil.

The public is welcome to attend services.
