Adult Ministries at CTK exist to create opportunities for people to grow, connect and serve alongside others. No matter where you are in your walk with God, we would love to have you be a part of what we are doing, and want you to find a place to belong and grow here at CTK. 

Light up your neighborhood this Halloween!

What if we each stepped out of our comfort zone to bless our neighbors?  What if we went out of our way to give away goodies and glow bracelets to the people God has place around us & get to know them a bit?

Glow Stations are simple, fun and can create potential for us to someday share our lives and our faith with someone.

CTK will provide:
  • Candy and glow bracelets for trick-or-treaters
  • CTK Glow Station sign
As a Glow Station host, your job is to:
  • Pull together a team of people to serve with you — it could be your small group, friends, roommates, extended family, or other CTK’ers on your block. The possibilities are endless!
  • Organize your team to decorate your glow station;  be as creative as you want to be but keep little ones in mind (avoid scary, gory, or inappropriate themes)
  • Post photos of your experience to social media along with the hashtag #ctkglow21 so everyone can share in the fun

See you in the neighborhood on Sunday, October 31!

Small Groups

Our small group ministry exists to create authentic Christian community that works for you. Small groups provide opportunities for face-to-face connection, a sense of family, a place for people to belong and opportunities to serve. Find out how to join a small group.

Men

There are several ways to connect with other guys at CTK. We offer small groups, mentoring and service opportunities. Please contact Ron for more information. Here is one way to serve right now:

Women

We are ordinary women from all walks of life. Some of us have a passion to know and love God deeper. Others are just exploring this whole "God thing." Young or old; daughters, moms, grandmothers; married, divorced or single, working inside the home or out - there is a seat at the table for you. The Women's Ministry has several opportunities for you to connect - small groups, mentoring, serving and more. Contact Julie to learn more.

Join us for our Fall Study: Living Free by Beth Moore!

This fall, we are looking to God's Word to help us break through our strongholds and move toward a life of freedom in Christ. In Living Free, Beth Moore helps us to learn how to pray Scripture so that we can truly know God, glorify him, and experience his peace. Join us for a 7-week study for women as we learn to live in freedom together. 

If you participated in Rooted in the spring and are looking for a place to dive further into how to replace strongholds with truth, this 7-week study will be a great next step for you. If this is your first study with us, we hope that you will experience a warm and welcoming place to dive into the study of Scripture and grow alongside other women.

*Childcare for ages 0-5 is available for in-person studies!

Monday evenings in Person starting October 4th

Wednesday mornings in Person starting October 6th

Wednesday mornings Online starting October 6th

Marriage

At Christ the King we care about your marriage. That’s why we are here to support and encourage you on the journey. Whether you’re newly engaged or approaching your golden anniversary, whether you’re living marital bliss or struggling to make it another day, we hope the resources you find here will help equip, strengthen, and encourage your relationships.

Engaged or Considering Marriage? Check out our upcoming SYMBIS program, starting October 15th! 

Mended Ministries

No marriage is beyond the reach of God’s ability to heal and restore. Even when it feels hopeless. If you were inspired by the story of Rick & Tiffany Bulman during our weekend services on May 9/10, be sure to check out Mended Ministries. On their web-site you will find their book, Mended, their new video study, 7 steps to turn your marriage around in 7 days, and information on couples coaching from Rick and Tiffany.

The Art & Science of Love

Looking for practical principles and research-based methods to connect deeper, understand better and navigate conflict? The Art & Science of Love is based on the book 7 Principles of Making Marriage work and more than 20 years of research conducted at the University of Washington. John Gottman is considered one of the leading marriage experts in the world. This self-paced on-line workshop can help couples just starting out, needing a refresh, or even those who feel on the verge of giving up. Please note this is excellent research-based help, but it is not faith-based. Some opinions expressed are not shared by Christ the King Community Church. This can also be an excellent resource for couples where one or both spouses are not believers. 

Reconnect

Sometimes the challenge we face in marriage are rooted in hurts and coping skills that began before the couple ever meets. In his book Reconnect, Dr. Call explains that when we become aware of the myriad of factors that contribute to disconnection, we can develop new understanding and strategies that promote deeper connection and healing interaction.

Wedding Officiating

Congratulations if you've recently become engaged. Marriage is God's good idea to join a husband and a wife for a lifetime. Did you know premarital counseling or classes can reduce the chances of divorce by 31%? Since your marriage is the most important human relationship you'll ever have, CTK requires premarital prior to your wedding. We regularly offer classes & workshops. Talk to your officiant for more information.

The following CTK pastors may be available to perform weddings: Derek Archer, Ryan Ervin, Melonie Kemp, Garret Shelsta, Wendy Powell, Frank Talbot, Brian Steele, Charles Molenkamp, Brian Behrends, Angel Finsrud, Julie Burleson, Ron Walton, and Kevin Brearley. If you would like any of these pastors to perform your wedding please fill out this Wedding Officiant Request Form. Officiating includes: 1-2 meetings with pastor for ceremony planning, rehearsal, wedding ceremony and filing of your marriage documents; pastoral fees vary. Please note our pastors require couples to engage in premarital preparation. If you are looking for suggestions or referrals, we would be happy to assist you. Please contact Missy with questions.

Families

My name is Angel Finsrud and I am the Family Pastor here at CTK Bellingham. I’m also a mom of five, so I know that parenting can be incredibly rewarding and extremely difficult.

We aim to encourage and equip families by offering parenting classes and groups, providing resources to support you in your parenting journey and creating events and service projects to help your family connect and grow together. Check out some of the opportunities below!

Pumpkin Patch

Friday, October 8th, 5:00pm-7:00pm and Saturday, October 9th, 10:00am-12:00pm. Free event! Located in Base Camp.

Connecting with other families has been challenging over this last year. we've created this event for CTK friends and families to connect, enjoy a time of picking and decorating your own pumpkin (grown at our CTK Farm!), hot cider, taking pictures and having conversations that are long overdue. Questions? Email Dyona at .

Coming in December: Light of the World, Christmas Light Display! Plan to invite your friends and neighbors to walk through thousands of Christmas Lights in a warm, dry space.

The Parent Connection

Starting in October. Check back soon for starting date!

Join us three Wednesday nights in October and/or November for an opportunity to connect with other people (who happen to be parents too) and build connection and community.

Child Dedication

2 Classes followed by a Dedication Ceremony offered 2-3 Times a Year. 

When it comes to raising our kids, the list of responsibilities is long. But nothing we do is more important than pointing them toward Jesus. Child dedication at CTK is about helping you demonstrate your desire and commitment to do just that. Join other families with young children for two class sessions that will prepare you to dedicate your child to God — and yourself to godly parenting.

The class culminates with a dedication ceremony; invite your friends and family to celebrate with you and pledge their support in your commitment to your child. For more information, please complete a child dedication interest form.

Wondering how to respond to your kids big feelings or emotional responses? Check out this step-by step guide to Emotion Coaching by clicking here, a researched based approach that helps us give our kids the skills to regulate their emotions in ways that lead to success.
