The current Adult Ed class is Biblical Theology of Genesis 1-12. Here at CTK we make frequent reference to the early chapters of the Bible - the stories of creation, life in the Garden of Eden, the Fall, the Flood. Why are these early chapters so fundamental to our faith? What do they tell us about ourselves? What do they reveal about God? We’ll spend six weeks giving them a close read and exploring these questions. The class will meet in the social hall.
Coming Soon: The CTK Lending Library. You may have noticed our collection of books in the social hall. In the next couple weeks, those shelves will be reorganized and categorized and be ready for lending.

More information to come soon!
