Whether you attended the Getaway this year or not, the staff at CTK would love to get your feedback in this survey. We’re always looking for ways to improve the weekend and make it as beneficial, accessible, and enjoyable as possible.
The final Adult Ed class in the series on the Song of Songs will be this Sunday. Counterbalancing the many cautions and commands in the Bible regarding illicit sex, this much debated book offers an energetic and positive view of sexual love as a good gift from God. We won’t understand the love of God for his people without it. This week’s passage will be Song of Songs 6:4 and following. We invite you to bring your Bible.
Please note, there will be no Adult Education or children’s Sunday school this Sunday because of the Getaway. Classes will resume on February 10th.
We want to promote a healthy church community this winter and ask that you be sensitive of others when feeling unwell. Parents are asked to adhere to our sick policy when determining whether appropriate for a child to attend nursery or children's classes. Volunteer and teachers are asked to follow these guidelines as well.
Do you play guitar, ukulele or piano? We are seeking musicians to periodically lead songs in our Children’s Worship class (takes about 10 minutes during the service). You don’t need to be a rockstar—we welcome musicians of all levels. Please contact Dana (firstname.lastname@example.org) if interested.
Fourth Fridays and Fourth Sunday Eat-and-Meet will be on hiatus until the New Year. Hope to see you then!

A Sunday School teacher is needed to join our Grade 4 & 5 team to step in for someone moving away the end of October. Class meets from 8:45–9:45am and curriculum materials are provided. The team rotates teaching and assisting so two teachers are in class each week and teachers have some Sundays off. This is a great opportunity to build relationships with children in the church. Please contact Dana (email@example.com) for more information.
