Winter Getaway Reader.png


It's time to register for our annual winter getaway!

Join us for a weekend in the snowy woods of Alton, NH at Brookwoods Conference Center. Our speaker this year is Austin Pfeiffer, a CTK alum and associate pastor of Salem Presbyterian Church in Winston-Salem, NC. Come for a time of encouragement and learning and winter fun!

The deadline to register is Monday, January 22.

Scholarships are available.  Please contact the Church Office for more information.



Most of the accommodations at Brookwoods are bunk houses. Private rooms are available at an extra fee for families with small children. Due to space restrictions, priority for private lodging will first be given to those with the youngest kids. If necessary, families with school-aged kids may receive housing in the male and female bunkhouses. If you have any questions or concerns, please email

As part of caring for one another during this getaway, please expect to help in some volunteer capacity over the course of the weekend. We will need help with both set-up and clean-up, the welcome table, as well as children's programming and childcare. If you enjoy organizing social events, we also need volunteers to help run Saturday afternoon events (like craft table, outdoor excursions, broom ball) and Saturday evening events (like games, ping pong tournament, etc). There are dozens of ways to contribute to make this a fun weekend for all! If you have any questions about how to volunteer, contact Laura Bullock at

Curiosity in an Age of Distress

The human tendency in our age is toward entrenchment and away from curiosity. Our lack of curiosity harms our ability to see the humanity in our political adversaries, the examination of our sin, and our ability to see Christ in our midst. Walking through the first few chapters of John, we will examine our distress and see how curious souls can confess sin and enjoy Christ.
