 SUMMER SERMON SERIES Now through August 27th, CtK's Sunday sermons tackle questions posed and topics suggested by the congregation earlier this spring. Pastors Lindean and Grant expect the series to be challenging, for them as preachers, and for the congregation as hearers. The goal is to consider contemporary issues in terms of Scripture, Lutheran teaching, and the experience of the communiy. They hope each sermon might serve as a conversation starter, of sorts, so that by listening to one another, we might grow in understanding and gain fluency in speaking faithfully about issues that matter.

WORSHIP FLOWERS This summer worshipers are invited to bring cut flowers from their yards to worship each week for a collaborative bouquet. The bouquet will be sent with a volunteer each Sunday, to give to someone they meet, as a way to share God's grace and the beauty of creation.

FINAL WORSHIP ON WEDNESDAY (WOW) Wednesday, August 23rd, CtK gathers (6:30pm) for dinner in the social hall, followed by camp/family-style worship (7:00pm) around the fire pit. After worship, the youth (and their families) are encouraged to remain for an outdoor time of fellowship and reflection with JP Carlson called S'more. Questions? Talk to JP, 587-4131.

SERMON RECORDINGS Did you know that Sunday's sermon is recorded and available to listen to here on our website, click on the dropdown menu WORSHIP, then click on SERMONS. Look for the week you want to hear (ie: Second Sunday after Pentecost.) The Pastors also offer a pre-sermon video each week and you can find that on CtK's Facebook page (even if you don't have a Facebook account), You may have to scroll through a few photos and other items before you find this week's sermon preview, but don't give up -- it's there, we promise!
