Men's Biblical Deep Dive

The spiritual practice of Scripture reading is key for a thriving life of faith with Jesus. But is your busy calendar getting in the way?

We know the challenge too well. That’s why we’ve created The Biblical Deep Dive to ideally fit within your workweek. We’ll use an ancient practice called midrash to “seek with care” practical wisdom from scripture and to apply it to our lives today.

We know the challenge too well. That’s why we’ve created The Biblical Deep Dive to fit within your workweek. We’ll use an ancient Jewish practice called midrash to “seek with care” practical wisdom from scripture and apply it to our lives today. Deep Dive sessions have three parts:

  1. Reading 3 chapters of the Bible
  2. Open-forum discussion to collaboratively pull out meaning from the text
  3. Applying wisdom to crucial areas of work and home life. Sessions last one hour and start/end exactly on time to easily work into your schedule.

This spring we invite both engaged and married couples to experience the Together, Better: Relationship Class for Couples, where you'll learn both a theology of marriage and also talk about the day-to-day of relationships. Learn More

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 website, 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 online workshop can help couples just starting, 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 online workshop can also be an excellent resource for couples where one or both spouses are not believers. 


Sometimes the challenge we face in marriage is 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%?

Talk to your officiant for more information.

The following CTK pastors may be available to perform weddings: Ryan Ervin, Melonie Kemp, Wendy Powell, Brian Steele, Brian Behrends, Angel Finsrud, Julie Burleson, Stacy Koning, and Josh Lease.

Officiating includes 1-2 meetings with the pastor for ceremony planning, rehearsal, wedding ceremony, and filing 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 Erin with questions.

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.
