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!

Come see our Christmas Light Display!

Usher in the Christmas Season at All Is Bright - A Christmas Lights Display. Invite your friends & neighbors Nov. 30th - Dec. 3rd from 4:30 - 8pm at CTK in Bellingham. Walk through light tunnels and around a 14 ft. Christmas tree, while enjoying tens of thousands of lights shining in our unique Christmas vignettes. Enjoy warm beverages, picturesque backdrops and the beauty of Christmas, all while staying cozy and dry. This event is completely free. We would love for you to bring a donation of shampoo or conditioner for the Lighthouse Mission. Space is limited. Click here to reserve your experience today!

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.
