“I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!” (Psalm 122:1)
Worship is the heart of how we connect with our faith community and is common time together as the people of God. Our Pastor, church administrators, Worship team, and altar guild members dedicate many hours for sermon planning and service preparation. They work hard to make sure the Sunday messages are relevant and help make a connection between the Biblical texts and our daily lives. We are also blessed to have the resources to include high-quality music and choir as part of our worship experience.
Our Adult Choir offers musical praises during service many times a year, as well as participating in the annual Advent festival.

In a time when many are facing economic uncertainty, our support for the local community remains strong. It starts right here in our church building whose multi-purpose room is open to others, i.e. two different Alcoholics Anonymous groups and T.O.P.S. We support outreach programs like the O.A.S.I.S. Food Pantry and Lutheran Family Services and have strong partnerships with Habitat for Humanity, The Bridge, and Greenway Network.

Operations and Administrative Support Ministry
“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is part of it. And in the church,
God has appointed first of all apostles … also those able to help others,
those with gifts of administration.” (I Corinthians 12:27-29)
This is the cost of staffing, utilities, custodial, facility maintenance, and grounds upkeep for our entire ministry facility. In addition to hosting our congregation’s ministries, our facility enables us to provide space for the community groups and host weddings and funerals. To keep our building and grounds clean and inviting, our custodial staff and many volunteers work diligently on maintenance and upkeep. CTK is blessed with several programs and opportunities. Operations and administrative support also includes taking care of finances, our computer, telephone system, preparing the bulletins and written publications, and countless other tasks that are needed in keep CTK operational.
