Parents please note: With many families traveling and fewer kids, this week one combined Sunday School class (8:45-9:45am) will be offered for children 3 years to Grade 5 (in room 3). Note, childcare will also be available for those 2 years and under (in room 6).
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.
Children’s Worship classes will wrap up the year on the Story of Worship this Sunday, June 17. Please join us in the Social Hall after the service to view the gallery of art projects the children created. Parents, please note these classes will not meet over the summer and children will remain in the service to participate in all aspects of worship.
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 email@example.com.

If you were unable to attend, Simon Oliver's lecture is now available online. Dr. Oliver is Professor of Theology and Canon Theologian at Durham, UK and last Thursday he gave a talk entitled "Creation, Modernity, and Public Theology" in which he discussed how a recovery of the doctrine of creation bears relevance for many of today’s cultural concerns.
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.
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.
