Order of worship for August 9th - Tenth Sunday after Pentecost

Now that Montana is in Phase 2 of the Governor's plan for re-opening, we are gathering weekly for worship, on Wednesday evenings, at 7:00pm. The service will be outside on the main lawn (musicians will set up on the patio). If the weather is poor, the service will be cancelled, NOT moved inside. 

If you plan to attend, please bring your own seating (picnic blanket, lawn or camp chair) as we will not be moving chairs out from the social hall. We encourage the wearing of masks and social distancing, even outside.

The building will be unlocked for restroom access (though we encourage you to use the facilities at home before you arrive, to minimize the traffic in the building).

COVID19 Updates

June 3, 2020

Our Council, in consultation with CtK staff, voted to begin gathering for in-person worship on Wednesday evenings, beginning June 10th. Special events (weddings/funerals) may be conducted in the building, at the discretion of CtK staff, and according to current guidelines from the CDC and Gallatin City-County Health officials.

Wednesday evening services will be outside, on the main CtK lawn.
If you plan to attend, please bring your own seating (picnic blanket, lawn or camp chair) as we will not be moving chairs out from the social hall. We encourage the wearing of masks and social distancing, even outside.

The building will be unlocked for restroom access (though we encourage you to use the facilities at home before you arrive, to minimize the traffic in the building).

April 27, 2020

Our Congregation Council voted to keep our building closed through Phase I of Governor Bullock's Phased Reopening Plan. Please continue to "join" us for worship online.

April 3, 2020

Most of our small groups and many meetings have moved to "gathering" online, using either Zoom or WebEx. We also have an online "coffee hour" at 11:00am on Sunday mornings, on Zoom. If you would like to participate, please contact the church office for the meeting codes. In an effort to deter inappropriate content from unknown users, we are not sharing Zoom links online, only by email (links are included in the weekly email updates).

March 15, 2020

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, office@ctkbozeman.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.

March 13, 2020

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 (577-2382).
  • 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.

Are you looking for a way to serve during the current COVID-19 climate?  How do you feel about cooking and delivering a dinner or acting as an evening host for a couple of hours?  Homelessness remains an issue in our community even during a pandemic.  CtK is once again partnering with Mosaic Chapel to provide assistance to Family Promise families this year.  Our first round of volunteering for this summer begins on July 26th and lasts through the 8th of August.  If you sign up to provide a dinner, you will be contacted a few days in advance with information regarding the number of people and any food allergies you should be aware of when preparing the meal.  You can find more details and sign up to serve by clicking the link below:
