Love INC

LOVE INC

CtK is a partner congregation of Love INC (INC = in the name of Christ). 

We help stock Love INC's Personal Care Pantry with needed toiletries, etc. The next time you pick up shampoo, conditioner, band-aids, etc., for you, pick up an extra one (not the large economy size, please) for those in need and drop it off on the designated table in the social hall.

Members and friends are also encouraged to fill out a "Talent Tithe" so that their gifts and skills can be put to use helping those with various needs in our community.

Other Opportunities to Serve our Community

Every year we gather Christmas gifts to give to a family (or families) with children attending Meadowlark Elementary School (across the street from us), HAVEN Center, and also a family (or families) served by Family Promise in the previous year.

CtK supports the Gallatin Valley Food Bank.

We have regular drives for specific food items. Right now we are collecting canned soup and boxes of cereal.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Help stock The Shelf @ Bozeman High School and/or The Shelf @ Gallatin High School

During the spring each school year, alongside the CtK Sunday School children, CtK collects specific items the third Sunday every month for both schools. These items are passed on to HS youth (and families) in need. Check out this video about this ministry at facebook.com/ctkbozeman (look for January 10th (2019) post/youtube video).
