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.

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.


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.

Contact MacKenzie Granger, Early Childhood Director


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.

Any questions, contact Angel Finsrud.


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.


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.


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.


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!

Family Skate Night

Calling families of all ages to join us for a ton of fun at the roller rink! Whether you want to burn off some energy, make memories, or break out the dance moves, this is sure to be an afternoon to remember. Bring everyone you know and get ready for prizes, games, family-friendly music, and so much more. Join us on Sunday, February 5th at Lynden Skateway at 4:30pm. No need to register. Find more info HERE!

Friday Night Meals at the Shelter - Family Service Opportunity -

Jump in as a family or take the lead to invite 1-2 other families with you for this special act of service. Every Friday at the Norway House (our CTK Downtown Location), there will be an option (scheduled in advance) to choose a meal, shop for it, prepare, and serve it to the 40 men that live at our CTK Shelter. The best part is that you also get to grab a plate and sit down to share in this meal with them! Staff will be there to help guide the evening. It is sure to be a blessing to all. For families with children ages Kindergarten and up. Sign Up!

Contact Sydel for more information (360-733-1337)

Foster & Adoptive Parent Night Out

On Friday, March 10th, we are hosting an event to support and encourage foster and adoptive families in our community, and your family is invited to help make it happen! With your help, we can say “Thank you” for the important work these families do by offering the kids a night of fun while the grown ups take a little time to recharge. Help with crafts, facilitate games, serve dinner, there are many ways to help. This service opportunity is ideal for families with kids 2nd grade and older, but some behind the scenes opportunities may work for families with younger children.

Are you a foster or adoptive parent? Register your 0-8th grade kids to attend while you take a night off!

To learn more about serving contact Sydel (360-733-1337).

Moms in Prayer

Moms, come and experience the power of prayer and the way that praying together with other moms brings peace and hope. Praying God's Word over our children replaces any fear or anxiety we may experience for our children or their future as we continue trusting them to Him. Moms in Prayer gathers moms together weekly to pray specifically and spiritually for our children, our teachers, and our schools.

Whether you've been praying for your kids for years, or you are just getting started, this group is a safe and supportive place to connect with other moms to pray for the next generation.

Join us on Wednesday mornings from 9:00-10:00am at CTK Bellingham, upstairs in the Prayer Room (214).

Join us for a one-time class on Tuesday, January 24th, from 6:30-8:30pm. Find more info and register HERE

Talking with your Kids About Relationships & Sex

For most parents, the subject of sex can be a tough one to navigate. But everyone is talking about it, so our kids need us to step up to the conversation. As your church, we want to partner with you as we all walk towards a healthier narrative around this subject. Join us 2 Tuesday evenings, February 28th & March 7th, from 6:30-8pm, as we get equip for conversation by learning the scientific stats, euphemisms you need to know, and the necessary conversations to have from local experts who work in the field of sexual health education. Learn more info and register HERE!

Restoring Relationships with your Kids

We all make mistakes, it’s what we do afterwards that has the greatest impact on our relationships. You don’t have to live in a state of shame and regret. It is possible to  get back on track for a healthier and happier connection with our kids of all ages.

Join us on Sunday, March 26th at 9:30am to hear about practical tools to move forward through owning our choices, making repairs, learning to forgive and resetting our communications style, and discover that you can regain joy in relationships.

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.
