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!

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.

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.

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!
