English Service

Sunday's Songs

A reminder that samples of the songs for Sunday's worship service are posted on the website by the Wednesday before the service, along with the bulletin and the Scripture passage for the week.  This is a great way to prepare for the service, especially for children who will be joining us during the service for the summer rather than being dismissed for Children's Worship.  We encourage attenders of all ages to avail themselves of this resource.

Informational Meeting

All CTK members are encouraged to attend an informational meeting for CTK members at 9:00am this Sunday, June 24 in the social hall. There will be no adult education class that morning. The topic of the meeting  is the report delivered to the elders by GRACE.  Due to the sensitive nature of the report, some discussion may be inappropriate for children.  Children’s Sunday School classes will meet as usual.  If you plan to have your children attend class that day (while you attend the meeting), we ask that they arrive by 8:45am to avoid interruption to these classes.  For questions, please contact Nathan at nathan@ctkcambridge.org.

Hot Topics

The Adult Ed series this summer is Hot Topics in the Church, taking a close look at complex social, political, and ethical issues, seeking to apply the wisdom of Scripture to the uncertainties of our lives. The class will be taught by our pastoral staff and members of the church.  All are invited; if you have any questions, please email Nathan Barczi.  The upcoming topics are:  8/26: Science and Faith by James Goodman; 9/2: Review Discussion on Sexuality by Nathan Barczi (to review the classes on sexuality, or any other topics, visit the website).

Children's Ministry Policy Updates

Important Information for Members & Parents:  The church has put in place additional safeguard measures to better care for the children entrusted to our congregation.  As part of this, updated children’s policy and procedures took effect on Sunday, June 3, including these key changes:

  • CORI checks for all who serve and volunteer with our children.
  • A policy of having at least two adults with children in all rooms at all times.
  • New Nursery Check-in using matching parent and child security labels.

Missionary Contacts

CTK supports a number of missionaries through financial giving, prayer, and encouragement. To strengthen the church's work in praying for and encouraging these missionaries, we are inviting Community Groups to pray for and occasionally communicate with one of these families. CG leaders and/or other CG members can be the primary contact(s) with the family. If your CG is interested in learning more about being connected to a missionary, contact Laura Martin to get more information.

Adult Ed: Selflessness

This Sunday is the final class in the Adult Ed series on Selflessness taught by Nathan Carter.  A sad reality of human life after the fall is our deep self-orientation.  As the Holy Spirit works in the life of a Christian, what does it look like to have that self-orientation changed?  What makes a journey towards selflessness difficult? We will think through these questions and others with guidance from the stories and teachings of Scripture.  We will touch on issues such as service, relationships, prayer, evangelism, and self-control. Recordings of this and past classes are available at ctkcambridge.org/adulteducation.
