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. The next opportunity to join a small group is in January. Get more information.

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.

Join us in January 2022 for Stand Firm. Click the link for more details. 


Our men's breakfast is back! It's a fun and meaningful launch point for a deeper relationship with God and other men. Come enjoy a delicious free breakfast and hear about upcoming events, classes, and groups for men at CTK. This will take place Saturday, February 19th from 8:30-10:15am in the Meeting Place. RSVP to Ron ( ). 

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 winter study, He's Where the Joy Is.

It's hard to know a God we don't understand, and it's hard to love a God we don't know. But our God wants to be known and loved, and He’s told us a lot about Himself in the pages of His Word. Join us for this 7-session study as we break down the intimidating doctrine of the Trinity. You'll discover a beautiful, foundational view of our Triune God that will transform how you relate to Him. Understanding God's three-in-oneness and each of the Persons of God individually—Father, Son, and Spirit—will lead you to deeper intimacy with God and greater joy in knowing Him!

This women's Bible study will be offered Monday evening in person, and Wednesday morning both in person and over Zoom. Register by clicking the links below. Please double check that you are choosing your preferred day and online/in-person option.

Childcare is available for ages 0-5. Pre-registration is required by January 24 for Monday classes and by January 26 for Wednesday classes. Registration may close prior to these RSVP deadlines if childcare classes fill up. When you register for the Bible study it will automatically redirect you to sign up for childcare if you need it. 

Monday Evenings in-person | February 7-March 21 | 6:15-8pm |

Wednesday Mornings in person | February 9-March 23 | 10am-Noon |

Wednesday Mornings online | Zoom | February 9-March 23 | 10:30am-Noon |

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 Married? Consider joining our Marriage Mentoring Experience coming in February.

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, Brian Behrends, Angel Finsrud, Julie Burleson, Ron Walton, Kevin Brearley, and Stacy Koning. 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.

Using a CTK Facility

If you would like to use Christ the King Church facilities for your wedding, please fill out a Facility Rental Request and someone will follow up with you shortly!

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!

Moms in Prayer

Moms in Prayer will be on a 3 week break from December 28th - January 4th; see you again on January 11th!



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.
