She described the financial challenges in maintaining a staff at KOG that is larger than similar sized churches in the area and the need to right-size personnel. She also noted that a large staff tends to induce a more dis-engaged congregation which can also lead to a decline in the vibrancy and growth of a church. She assured the congregation that much thought had been given, and time invested, by the Personnel Committee and the council in the decision to eliminate the Director of Children’s Ministry position. She emphasized the Personnel Committee’s and Council’s confidence in the remaining staff to continue a strong Children and Family Ministry. Architectural Review Committee (ARC) – Russell Burton, Chair Russell Burton explained the purpose of the ARC as primarily conceptual design, budget estimation and oversight of the construction process.

Remaining open issues for the ARC include: elimination of outside improvements to match renovation costs to pledge level; loss of elevator redundancy; refit of lower level kitchen from a commercial grade to residential equipment; and consideration of replacing aging Sanctuary pews vs. remove, repair and re-install costs. Next steps will include: finalization of plans in March; organizing congregational work days in April/May to prepare for construction; and progression of construction process with goal to hold Christmas services in the renovated sanctuary.

REPORTS Congregation Council President – Rick Carter 2016 was anticipated to be a time of transition and change. The changes were many and the transitions are ongoing. King of Glory looked forward to the construction phase of our Building Tomorrow Together Capital Campaign. The patience of the congregation and staff throughout this phase has been incredible. Enhancements to the classrooms, fellowship hall and activity center are completed. The sanctuary construction is due to be completed in February 2017. The activity center improvements provide a wonderful worship space that can be used for large groups and alternative worship formats. Additional and larger classrooms provide dedicated spaces for children’s choir and larger venues for adult education. Pledges begun in 2015 continued to be fulfilled with additional pledges incoming at the end of the year. Interim construction financing was secured and is projected to be retired in 2018. Council eliminated the position of Director of Children’s Ministry. Subsequently a Call Committee for a Pastor of Youth and Family was formed. After an unsuccessful search, this position was modified to Director of Youth and Family. The search is ongoing. A totally unexpected change was the resignation of Pastor Jon Bustard in June. Shortly thereafter, King of Glory was blessed by Pastor Gary Johnson accepting the call of Interim Senior Pastor. His presence among us has provided healing, discovery and insightfulness. God surely sent a spiritual leader to transition us to a new senior pastor. Initiated in the spring, Council scheduled two town hall meetings to better foster communication between the congregation, staff and council. This has proven to be an excellent venue for open discussion. Near the end of the year timing was right and Council initiated formation of a Call Committee for a new Senior Pastor. Our prayer is the committee will be led by the Holy Spirit and that our potential leader is already feeling the hand of the Lord on his/her shoulder. In the past year the Lord has challenged us, tested us, blessed us and above all, led us. In the coming year King of Glory anticipates seeing the culmination of many blessings in our midst, the completion and rededication of the sanctuary, the revealing of our new Senior Pastor, finding a Director of Youth and Family and the expanded use of our facility to share the gospel. King of Glory has a new story to write. Please pray that the Holy Spirit will fill us and equip us to expand God’s kingdom. In Christ

Church in Society – Janet Follstaedt, Chair 2016 Committee Members: Ken Gill (former chairperson), Tina Larson (secretary), Matthew Aviles, Kelli Ettlebrick Daelke, Sandy Knutson, Andy McClung Crandall, and Janet Follstaedt. Mission Statement: To faithfully invest our God-given resources through growing engagement in outreach. Benevolence: The committee proposed to church council that the annual benevolence be increased from 16% of the budget to 17% of the budget in 2017, with an increase of 1% of the annual budget each year until the annual allocation is 20% of the budget in 2020. We will continue to work with the church council on this. The committee determined the allocation of King of Glory’s benevolence budget, using the 16% allocation. Half of this amount is allocated to the NTNL Mission Area and the other half is allocated to King of Glory mission partner organizations. The allocations are based, in part, on the level of volunteer involvement by King of Glory members and the number of opportunities for King of Glory members to participate in the outreach activities. A small portion of the benevolence budget is set aside for emergency and discretionary spending. The committee also identified recipients of the Christmas and the Faithful Ones offerings. Mission Partner Highlights: The committee believes it is vital to hear from our mission partners to ensure that our resources are used appropriately and to identify opportunities to serve our community with our mission partners. During 2016, we heard from Texas Ramps, North Dallas Shared Ministries, Network of Community Ministries, In the City for Good and RAI Habitat for Humanity. In 2017, we plan to hear about the KOG Refugee ministry, VNA Meals on Wheels as well as other ministry partners. 2017 Activities: The committee is assessing ways to keep the congregation informed about the awesome accomplishments of our mission partners and to identify more volunteer opportunities.

Interim Senior Pastor - The Rev. Gary Johnson I was called as your Interim Senior Pastor beginning in September 2016. My duties included the regular duties of the Senior Pastor i.e. preaching, teaching, supervising staff, worship planning. However, there were some interesting and extra challenges as well.

Writing a New Story / 2016 Annual Report

The Senior Pastor left, the Associate was scheduled to leave, much of two buildings were under construction/renovation, a major capital campaign was underway and the congregation moved out of the sanctuary into a new worship space. My challenges were to bring a calm presence, enthusiasm and hopefulness, work with the staff to manage any anxieties they had about the abrupt change in pastoral leadership, and provide a strong and singular voice from the pulpit and try to gain trust and familiarity with the congregation. I have tried to stay on course with these objectives along with helping the congregation to see itself in a new and shining light of the future. We are all trying to pray and imagine King of Glory into a new phase of ministry. We are looking for new ways to help the community, share the blessing of our wonderful facility, and always share the message of Jesus Christ as redemptive, just, merciful and loving. Progress and change are in the air. We now share our campus with HEROES. We are trying a new Annual Meeting process to enhance communication and participation. We are celebrating the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation with two big events, one in March, one on Reformation weekend. We are searching for a youth ministry person to build and enhance our youth program. We are exploring a way in which we can provide a weekly worship service for special needs persons and their families working with HEROES and MOSAIC. We are forming an intentional ministry to the elusive and discerning millennials who seek authenticity, a chance to unplug, traditional ministry and community service. I am hoping to leave here with special needs and millennial ministry in motion. There are new and renewed plans and programs in Care Ministry including a revitalization of Stephen Ministry, lecture series for self-care and meditation, a support group for spouses and others involved in long term care of loved ones. This congregation has challenges. We need to seek singles, young couples, non-traditional families, people of color, and extend a warm welcome to the LBGTQ community. We need to define what our neighborhood is and seek out our neighbors. We need to use our past to build our future. Our evangelism efforts are weak and we are suffering for that. More importantly, we know Jesus and we want everyone to know Jesus. For he is The King of Glory.

Director of Church Administration – Kim Widlund First and Foremost, THANK YOU CONGREGATION! Thank you for your patience, dedication, understanding, commitment, prayers and support. This has been a year full of many different opportunities and challenges. We have had so many blessings, our lower level remodeled, our worship in the Activity Center with new improved lighting, sound, and technology, and our soon to be completed Sanctuary. All of this has been possible because of you and your generosity in sharing your time, gifts, prayers, faithfulness, love of King of Glory Lutheran Church and for the Kingdom of God. We have and are Building Tomorrow Together not only for today but for years to come. We have opportunities to be open for our community and now we have the space to accommodate them. Thank you especially to Steve Hild, Steve Brookover, Michael Weir, Randy Kurtz, Lynn Sullivan, Michael Shake, Kerri Macy, and the Architectural Review Committee for all your support, guidance, creativity and oversight of the Construction, Finances, Communication and Worship. I am most appreciative of your hard work. You have helped to make this transition so much easier. Luis Cabrera and Jose Duran continue to prepare our facility during the week for Worship, King of Glory sponsored events and for making outside groups feel welcome. They are always willing to provide additional services when needed. They continue to be faithful, committed, and dedicated servants to all of us at King of Glory and our visiting community.

Eric Orenge helps us on the weekends with all our custodial needs. Eric continues with his studies and is a vital part of the Umoja Community. We are thankful for the work that Eric does for us. Thanks to Larry Oberg and Beckie Robinson, Event Coordinators for their continued work at the front desk. They are the friendly face when you first come to King of Glory and the smiling voice on the phone. They schedule KOG sponsored events/meetings as well as for people in the community who use our facility. They make sure the room set up is completed to meet the needs of all respective spaces. Should additional equipment be required i.e., microphone, projector, podium, etc., they make sure that is available. Larry and Beckie are constantly working with the staff to ensure that all events have the necessities to make the event successful. Umoja Community, under the leadership of Pastor Absalom Nasuwa is thriving. You can find Pastor Absalom in his office in the lower level. It is a pleasure to be in partnership with this growing worship community. Thank you to Michael Dorman, who does an outstanding job as the Manager of Accounting. Thank you for your attention to detail, for always being willing to help with new tasks, and for your commitment to serve our congregation. We have been blessed to have you with us on staff. In November 2016, we welcomed Stacey Barrett as a new administrative assistant to the King of Glory staff family. Stacey comes to us with a wide variety of skills and experience. Stacey has taken on tasks with enthusiasm, eagerness, and creativity. Thank you, Stacey. We are so happy to have you with us. Chapel/Columbarium The chapel-columbarium is open on week days and Sundays for family and friends to remember their loved-ones, or spend some time in quiet reflection. The chapel columbarium committee is there to assist our pastors, family members, and staff with memorial services, funerals, and committal services. The members of this committee have been a vital part of this ministry. The staff continues to have worship in the Chapel. Library/Bookstore & Giftshop With the renovation of the sanctuary, congregational participation of the Library/Gift shop has been extremely limited. Our Christmas Atrium book sale was mildly successful, and a clearance sale we had this summer proved enjoyable by several. This year we were invited to join the Ministry’s Fair and we acquired 3 new volunteers. However, with the Sanctuary renovation, we reduced our hours of operation to allow all volunteers the opportunity of attending the worship service of their choice. We also lost 2 of our volunteers either to another ministry or relocation. The Library acquired 134 new books, many for our adult readers and several for theological education. As usual, most of the new books are for our younger readers. With sadness we experienced the loss of one of our board members, Elise Peterson. She was a very involved board member, and will be missed immeasurably. Several Guild members are contributing to a memorial for her to be placed in the Library. We look forward to serving the KOG congregation with the same enthusiasm we had prior to the Sanctuary renovation.

Thank you to the Congregation, Council, staff, and the countless committees that continually work tirelessly together to be that beacon of hope for each other and our community. A special thank you to my colleagues (the staff at King of Glory). The love, care, and dedication you have for our church and one another is invaluable. I am proud to work with each of you. Thank you to Pastor Gary Johnson for answering the call to serve as our Interim Senior Pastor. You have brought insight, inspiration, God’s word, grace and love to us through your preaching and the way you live your life with us. We are thankful to you, Krista and your family for sharing with all of us.

Director of Music and Artistic Ministries - Michael Shake 2016 marked my first full year of ministry at King of Glory. One might think that with this a certain pattern, a rhythm, of daily ministry might have presented itself. But as we embarked on enhancements to our campus through Building Tomorrow Together, and experienced changes among the ministry staff, a daily rhythm became more and more elusive. There was, however, one constant – our worship and music. Week after week we remained knit as a community through the promise and presence of God at Word and Table. Here are some snapshots of what we experienced together: 146 individual services of worship, including o regular Sunday worship with Holy Communion  8 baptisms o worship for life passages  9 memorial services  1 wedding o midweek worship during Advent and Lent o worship on Holy Days: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter o Summer Worship that featured a breadth of musical leadership from the Sanctuary and Summer Choirs, jazz ensemble, organ, and special guests including pianist/composer Stephen Nielsen, saxophonist Mark Lara, and harpist Barbara Biggers o new for 2016  Choral Evening Prayer for All Saints, a musical service of remembrance offered by the Sanctuary Choir on November 6  two services of Lessons and Carols featured all King of Glory choirs and musicians, with guests, the Sachse High School Madrigal Singers on December 18 o 225 worship volunteers – acolytes, Altar Guild, crucifers, communion assistants, liturgists, readers, and ushers o transition to the Activity Center for worship during Sanctuary renovation period CHILDREN’S MUSIC o Story/Choir Sunday School  second year of schedule that provides a dedicated gathering time for Kindergarten, 1st-2nd, and 3rd5th grades before breaking into separate class tracks  25 average weekly participation in Alleluia Choir (Kindergaren-2nd grade) and Laudate Singers (3rd-5th grade)  choirs sing monthly at 9:00 and 11:15 a.m. worship  presented the Christmas musical, Away in a Manger at the Children’s Christmas Celebration on December 11  committed volunteer leadership of directors Emily Becker and Karen McAdams, accompanists Linda Haupt and Ruth Moncrief, and shepherds Allie Becker and Julie Brookover ADULT MUSIC o Glory Ringers  dedicated volunteer leadership of Jan Fisher and Kari Daelke  12 average weekly participation  regular leadership in 11:15 a.m. worship; occasional leadership at 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. worship  provided pre- and post- service music between worship on Christmas Eve o New Creation Ensemble  monthly choral leadership at 9:00 a.m. worship under interim director Leia Browning and new director Michael Shake

 10 average weekly participation  joined with the Sanctuary Choir for special music on January 31, May 29, and December 18 o Sanctuary Choir  weekly leadership at 11:15 a.m. worship; occasional leadership at 8:00 a.m. worship  25 average weekly participation  significant music offerings for Good Friday, Choral Evening Prayer for All Saints, Lessons and Carols, and Christmas Eve  fall retreat led by Dr. Karen Kenaston-French, Director of Choral Activities at University of Texas-Arlington o Summer Choir  regular leadership on Summer Worship Sundays  welcomed several guest members from outside of the music ministry  26 average weekly participation o Choral Scholars  expanded from 2 to 3 scholars  support and enhance the ministry of adult choir volunteers  recognized part of our community Some of our opportunities for 2017 • return to our renovated Sanctuary with opportunities to discover creative new ways to use space for worship and concert • Music and Arts Sunday on May 7 featuring all King of Glory musicians • hosting opening worship of the American Guild of Organists Southwest Region Convention on June 12 with leadership by the Sanctuary Choir and organist Michael Shake • special worship/concert to commemorate Reformation 500, date(s) to be determined • new initiatives for growth of Adult Music ministry; connections with older children and youth • welcoming a new senior pastor into the worship life of our community The ministry highlights above reflect the collective effort of many volunteers – some whom you see listed – but also a dedicated staff. In addition to arranging and playing responsibilities, John Adams took on an expanded role of music coordination for our jazz service in the fall. The care and quality that John shares in worship week after week is a blessing to our community. Marilyn Cupp remains a devoted behind the scenes force of our ministry, allowing worship to occur without any worry of a missed detail. Pr. Gary Johnson is as fine of an interim pastor as one could wish for. He is a wonderful partner in worship and an encourager of our ministry and our church. I would be remiss if I did not thank the entire King of Glory ministry staff. During the course of 2016 we came together united in our love for this church and renewed in our call to ministry here. It has been a privilege to serve beside them, and beside you this last year.

Director of Communications - Lynn H. Sullivan King of Glory is an active congregation with many opportunities for service, fellowship and community. Communicating to the members as well as the community continues to be a challenge. My main priorities have been and continue to be communicating the King of Glory vision, to find ways to reach those looking for a church, to help new members, to encourage current members to become more active, and, as always, to continue to inform our congregation of all KOG has to offer. We started a program in August called “Ministry of the Month.” We take an entire month and focus on just one of King of

10

Writing a New Story / 2016 Annual Report

Glory’s mission partners. All Faithful Ones dollars for that particular month are dedicated to that ministry, a representative from that mission partner is given the opportunity to briefly speak during a Sunday service and donation/service opportunities for members are presented. A new newsletter was created this past year— the “KOG News Brief.” With the goal of giving a quick snapshot of events and programs around KOG, it is produced once a month and announced via email with a link to a pdf. For those who prefer to have a newsletter in hand, a few copies can be found at the Welcome Center the first Sunday of each month. A weekly devotion is now being sent out on Monday or Tuesday that reflects on the sermon from the previous Sunday. As part of our God’s Word: Own It! Campaign, we hope members will use this resource for individual devotion, small group, or family time to find a closer relationship with God. If you would like to receive our weekly emails, please go to the homepage of our website (kingofglory.com) and click on the “Get Weekly Updates” link. From there you can add your name to the email list of your choice. Finally, I am very pleased to say that the new KOG website will launch in February 2017. This has been more than a year in the making and I am very pleased with the results. Our goal was to have a website that will effectively serve our members and reach more in our community. This initial launch is the first step in achieving this goal. The next step will be to implement a “Members Only” section so that we can have an online directory of members. Stay tuned. If all goes well, look for new changes by this summer. As always, it is a blessing to be able to serve as your Communications Director.

Interim Coordinator of Youth Ministries – Ryan D. Kriesch 2016 saw many changes in the Youth program. It started when I accepted the call to become the Interim Coordinator of Youth Ministries in November 2015. This brought on many challenges, a new congregation, many new people to meet, new relationships, and new traditions. Before I go into the highlights from 2016, I must first acknowledge and thank the whole congregation for the warm welcome I have received. The challenge of meeting so many new people in a short time was met by smiling faces and warm conversations. I thank you all for that. I also have to thank all the adult leaders that volunteer so much of their time with the youth program. We welcomed Kelly Peasley to the team as the new Family Ministry Administrator. Kelly is a wonderful addition to the team. Her contributions and work are irreplaceable. •





Discipleship Camp • Discipleship Camp in 2016 was held at Briarwood Retreat Center. We had 40 participants for the annual Youth camp. Our theme for the weekend was “EXCHANGE” as we explored how we gain through giving up. Mission Trips • We took two mission trips in the summer of 2016. • The Jr. High Mission trip took us to Lake Traverse Reservation in South Dakota. While we were there serving the community, we did various community service projects ranging from painting bathrooms at the local school to helping with the local kidz club. • For the Sr. High Mission trip, we went to the Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas. During our time at the Heifer Ranch, we learned about global poverty and hunger. We spent one night in the “Global Village” where we learned what it is like to live with limited resources we commonly take for granted like shelter, food, water and even cooking fuel. Easter Breakfast • Through your contributions, the youth brought in over $2200 from their annual Easter breakfast while serving almost

400 plates. The Youth put on a wonderful breakfast led by the Sr. High leading the Jr. High, passing on the tradition to them. BBQ • The youth prepared and served a delicious lunch of BBQ chicken and coleslaw for all the participants during the KOG clean-up day to prepare for the building construction. Car Wash • We added a new fundraiser for the Youth this year to help with Mission trip costs, the first annual Youth Car Wash where the youth washed cars while KOG worshiped. We washed approximately 60 cars in a 2-hour time span. Through your generous giving we raised $1080. Confirmation • This year we had 7 youth confirmed. • In 2016 we introduced a new 3-year lesson plan to follow. Each grade has its very own curriculum that allows more in-depth study and builds on the previous year. • 6th grade – Old Testament Studies • 7th grade – New Testament Studies • 8th grade – Small Catechism with life application Flanket • In May we recognized the graduating seniors and their families in the annual Flanket ceremony. This year we saw 13 seniors receive their flankets to take with them to college. Angel Tree • During Christmas, we supported Upbring with their Angel Tree. What an amazing outpouring of support. Through your efforts, 119 foster children and youth got to wake up on Christmas morning with a gift. Mt. Olive • During the year, the youth support Mt. Olive by assembling cracker bags to be handed out to the homeless. In addition, in December, we assemble a gift bag for them as well, which includes a new pair of socks, some candy and a short note from the youth. Created by God • In 2016, Created by God workshop shifted from the Children’s Ministry to the Youth Ministry. Youth Ministry Advisory Team (YMAT) • Over the past year we installed the YMAT to advise, help plan events and vision. This team is priceless. The YMAT is dedicated to improving the youth ministry looking forward to the future.

Invitation We have many wonderful adult leaders that volunteer many hours building relationships, leading instruction and preparing the way for our future leaders. We currently have 14 adults that lead the youth during the year. We can always use more help though. This is a wonderful way to serve and raise up future leaders. Closing This has been an exciting and wonderful past year, from learning the traditions of King of Glory to the establishment of new friendships. It has been a joy getting to know you, the King of Glory family and not being told about who King of Glory is, but being able to experience it through your eyes. I want to thank all of you for the opportunity to serve with, beside and for you. It has been a blessing. I thank God for all of you.

Children’s Ministry Coordinator — Rainey Smith 2016 brought a very significant change to Children’s Ministry, in regards to staffing. The Children’s Ministry Director position was eliminated in May. We honored Nancy Parker for her years of service at King of Glory with a highly-attended picnic. The children presented her with a one-of-a-kind piece of art.

King of Glory Lutheran Church Foundation - Bill Meeder, President The King of Glory Lutheran Church Foundation was created to promote planned giving and memorial gifts within the King of Glory community. A planned gift includes funds usually contributed at the end of a life. As we say in our communications, “You’ve given to the church throughout your life. Wouldn’t you want to continue to do so at the end of your life, when you no longer have need for your assets, but God does?” The Foundation’s Board of Trustees is responsible for investing, administering, and distributing the funds received by the Foundation to support King of Glory’s mission: To be and to make followers of Christ who boldly share the grace of God with the world.

TREASURER AND FINANCIAL STATEMENTS TREASURER'S REPORT While the general fund ended 2016 with a $3,023 surplus, total offerings were only marginally better than 2009 and 2010 due to the lowest December offering in the past 8 years. We were able to achieve the surplus by controlling expenses throughout the year. The small surplus reduced the accumulated deficit to $140,000, which we will continue to carry for a couple of years. Building Tomorrow Together (BTT) received additional pledges and contributions of $310,000, increasing the project total to $3.86 million. BTT received $1.1 million in support during 2016, resulting in total project support of $2.61 million. We have $1.25 million in outstanding pledges. We have spent $3.61 million on the project, leaving a balance of $250,000 for final expenses. In January 2017, we reached our borrowing limit of $1.7 million and will begin paying off the debt in Spring 2017 as contributions are received. During 2015 and 2016, the three rental houses earned $55,000. Of this, $15,000 was transferred to the general fund and $36,000 was paid against the 2015 parking lot overage debt of $101,000. Net cash of $4,000 remains available as working capital. The rent houses assumed responsibility for the overage in Spring 2016, and the remaining $65,000 is expected to be paid from rental income over the next 4 years.

Audit Committee — Matt Federle, Chair At the request of the King of Glory Congregation Council and the Treasurer, we have performed certain agreed upon reviews of the 2016 Financial Statements of the King of Glory Lutheran Church. Specifically, we have reviewed the General and Restricted Funds Balance Sheets, the Statement of Revenues and Expenditures of the General Fund, and the Detail Statement of Revenue and Expenditures of the General Fund. It should be noted that all fixed assets on the Balance Sheets are reported at cost. The specific procedures that we performed are described in the audit work program, which is maintained, together with the supporting working papers, at the church office. Because the specific procedures that we performed do not constitute an audit made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, we express no opinion on the financial statements referenced above. In connection with the specific procedures that we performed, no matters came to our attention that caused us to believe that the financial statements should be adjusted. A full audit of the financial statements performed by a registered auditor in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards may provide different results. This report relates only to the statements referred to above and does not extend to any other statements contained in this Annual Report.
