After worship this morning, the CtK council voted to suspend gatherings (including worship) and activities until further notice. For now, the church office will remain open for regular hours, M: 8am-12pm; Tu-Th: 8am-5pm; F: 8am-2pm.
Please know these decisions were not made lightly. Part of what makes CtK such a vibrant congregation is our intentionally inter-generational community gathering together. Not gathering will be difficult.
Staff are already hard at work on plans to mitigate that loss of in-person community. If you are a member of CtK, chances are good you'll be getting a phone call from a staff or council member in the next several days. Pastors and worship leaders will be recording and posting services and resources online, which should help with the livestream glitches we experienced this morning due to heavy traffic on Facebook. We will also be sending prayers and links via email. If you do not receive an email from the CtK office in the next day or two, and would like to receive them, please let the church office know, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, church is not the building; church is the people, and church is not cancelled.
We pray that our efforts to slow down the spread of the corona virus will help fewer people get sick, and help make sure that those who do become ill can receive all the care they will need.

Here at CtK, the staff and council are monitoring updates about COVID19, and prayerfully considering actions we might take. Here are some updates:
- If you are at all unwell, even with "just a sniffle" - PLEASE STAY HOME.
- If you are over 60 years old or have a medical condition which makes you at higher risk, please consider staying home, and practicing "social distancing."
- Beginning this Sunday, we will livestream worship at 10:00am on the CtK Facebook page. To view it on your phone, you'll need to log in to Facebook. To view it without logging in, use a computer and go to: www.facebook.com/ctkbozeman
- Sharing the peace of the Lord will be hands-free - bow, use ASL, offer jazz hands, or any other sign of peace that is no-contact.
- We will not pass offering plates. There will be one offering plate near the baptismal font - please place your offering/tithe in it as you enter or leave the sanctuary. Now might be a great time to check out options for giving electronically! Call Dawn in the church office for more information (587-4131).
- Those serving bread or gluten free wafers for Holy Communion will wash their hands in the sacristy during the offering. Others will use hand sanitizer.
- After-worship fellowship food and beverages will be served from the kitchen by servers wearing gloves (even coffee). Please be patient.
- Since spring break is next week (3/16-3/20), we've decided NOT to have midweek soup supper on the 18th. We WILL gather for worship (Holden Evening Prayer this week) at 6:30pm. This service will also be livestreamed on the CtK Facebook page.
- Pastor Grant will be reaching out to the members of CtK most vulnerable to the new corona virus. If you would like a pastoral call, please let the church office know.
- Additional steps will be taken as needed as things change. We will post the most recent information here on the home page of the website.
