with joys and sorrows, gifts and flaws, to come be loved by God. 
Rejoicing in God's grace, sustained by God's word and inspired by God's spirit, 
we care for others, work for justice, pray for peace and share the gospel of Christ. 
As we journey through life and its struggles, our faith and trust in God comforts us.

A prayer for my dad
Dear God, I gratefully thank you
for giving me my dad
You must really love me
'cause you gave the best You had

Watch over him and bless him, Lord
and keep him in Your care
and may he feel my love for him
is my humble, heartfelt prayer
-Ron Tranmer

What a Beautiful Service of Confirmation on June 10th!

 We celebrated 8 of our young people affirm their baptisms. 

Such a wonderful sight to see family, extended family, friends and our church family celebrate the gifts these confirmands bring to our worship.



Thank you for coming to the

CtK Flea Market on June 3rd!

Lots of treasures changed hands, lots of snacks and drinks consumed!

Thanks to Don Corwin and the army of hardworking volunteers 

that made the day such a success!


The focus of our Congregational Meeting was 


"Having a Heart for God"

Throughout the month of June we will be focusing on ways that we have a heart for each other and expressing that love in a spiritual practice.

You are invited to speak with someone who you do not know well and to look around the sanctuary and see who is missing. Give them a call or send them a note. 
Let them know that you missed them.  
 
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart...
This is the greatest and first commandment."
Matthew 22: 37-38

to serve all people, following the example of Jesus, and 
to strive for justice and peace in all the earth?

The Church confesses Christ, who has broken down the dividing wall (Ephesians 2:14). Christ, our
peace, has put an end to the hostility of race, ethnicity, gender, and economic class. The Church
proclaims Christ, confident this good news sets at liberty those captive behind walls of hostility
(cf. Luke 4:18).
