Welcome!

Our goal is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ by building relationships with them, being examples for them and teaching them God’s Word. While many things in our world are changing, some things are staying the same, like our ability to connect and meet with Jesus.

At this time, we are only able to offer children’s ministry during our Sunday morning weekend services. Your kids are invited to attend with you during Saturday night services.

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.

Learn More

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!

Early Childhood

Hello, my name is MacKenzie Granger and I am the Early Childhood Director here at CTK Bellingham! I am so excited that you are here and I can’t wait to show you what we have in store for your child in the nursery and in Adventureland. Our staff and volunteers are excited to offer your child a safe, inviting place where they get to engage with children their age and learn about the love of Jesus.

NURSERY | 0–23 MONTHS

We consider it a privilege to play an important role in the development of your little one’s faith. Our team sees the nursery as an important ministry. We’re very careful and intentional in creating a safe environment where the love of Jesus is the focus.

We want you to be able to relax and enjoy your time with us. Bringing the following items will ensure that all your child’s needs are being met while in our care: a diaper, bottle (pre-made), pacifier and any other security or comfort item. To make sure you get home with everything you brought, please label all items and place them in a compact bag with your child’s name on it.

ADVENTURELAND | 2 YEARS–KINDERGARTEN

Your preschooler will love visiting Adventureland. For an hour every weekend, they’ll experience large-group worship and age-specific small group time.

Through games, music, and exciting Bible lessons, we provide spiritual nourishment that fits this active, curious stage in your child’s life. Adventureland equips kids to develop a real relationship with God and make wonderful friends.

Before your child gets to Adventureland, please make sure to check in at the Children’s Check-in station and make a stop at the preschool-sized restroom in the hallway near our classrooms.

Welcome to Base Camp!

K-5th Grade

Home to CTK Kids elementary ministries, Base Camp is a large campground-themed space complete with a Ranger Station where kids gather for a time of worship through music, prayer, teaching, and an exciting story from the Bible.

Children hear the Gospel – the Good News, that Jesus is God’s rescue plan! They discover valuable life lessons from the Bible, and how to put into practice what God is showing them. Base Camp also has three grade-specific campsites: Happy Campers, Quest and The Lookout.


HAPPY CAMPERS | K & 1ST GRADE

Kids need a place where they can just be themselves — and that’s where Happy Campers comes in! During every weekend service, Kindergarteners and 1st graders have a blast, hanging out with their leaders and friends, playing games, coloring, and talking about the day’s Bible story.

Happy Campers is a place where your child can meet Jesus.

Contact Bren Weatherby


QUEST | 2ND & 3RD GRADE

Kids love an adventure — and that’s what Quest is all about. During every weekend service, 2nd & 3rd graders will have a blast, hanging out with their
leaders and friends, playing games, and exploring what it means to follow Jesus on the greatest adventure of all!

Quest is a place where your child can meet Jesus.

Contact Bren Weatherby


THE LOOKOUT | 4TH & 5TH GRADE

There’s a huge difference between a first grader and a fifth grader, so we offer something just for kids in 4th and 5th grades during every weekend service. The Lookout is a fun place for kids to learn to apply God’s truths and love others.

Worship happens in a large group setting, and then kids enjoy age-specific group games, music, and teaching. Children discover valuable life lessons from Bible characters — and how to put into practice what God is showing them. The Lookout is a place where your child can meet Jesus.

Compass

Compass is a social and emotional skill-building program helping kids ages 6-12 navigate through life's many challenges. Most of us, and our kids, have experienced some stormy times in life, such as identifying and processing feelings, understanding relationships, making wise choices, working through changes, and capturing lies we may believe about ourselves to replace them with God's truth. These are just some of the topics where Compass can provide help.


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.

Mom's Café


Moms In Prayer

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.

Adventure Academy

Adventure Academy, our midweek program for children, has been designed to complement our weekend and Compass programs, to teach both the fundamentals of following Jesus, while also giving kids the opportunity to try specialty skills. This fun, high energy program will help kids dig deeper into God's word and inspire them to live the adventure of following Jesus every day.

Adventure Academy Training Begins Sept 2021
