At CTK Bellingham, we're committed to serving the community where God has placed us. We believe that the good news of Jesus is best shared across a bridge of relationship. That bridge is built by humble service that develops into collaborative partnerships, and is characterized by an ongoing commitment to love those around us, regardless of how much we may or may not have in common.
We serve our community in many ways, but there are five areas we give particular attention:
- Kids & Families
- Those experiencing homelessness
- People with disabilities
- The hungry & food insecure
- Those in relational crisis
What We Do
To maximize our impact, we often work through strategic partnerships with organizations that are uniquely positioned to connect with a specific group of people or effectively address needs in these areas. We focus our financial and volunteer resources on coming alongside these partners to support them and those they serve.
Many of our hunger-related partners connect with our Food Share & Farm ministry which you can learn more about here. Gathering and growing food for our hungry neighbors is a big part of the mission we believe God has specifically called our local church body to do in Northwest Washington.
How You Can Get Involved
CTK works hard to help you find your ministry in the community, whether that’s something you’re called to as an individual, as a family or with your small group. One-time service opportunities are a great way to discover your passion and unleash the unique gifts you bring to God’s work in this world! In fact there are so many possibilities, we encourage you to explore ctkserves.org website to find out how you can serve our community partners, volunteer with the Food Share & Farm ministry, or take a tour of one of our amazing partners.
We also get the chance to come alongside individuals and families in need, when a relationship with CTK or one of our partners opens that door. In those situations, we look for ways the collective generosity of CTK can remove a barrier or fill a gap that helps them move towards greater financial sustainability. This type of assistance is called benevolence by many churches; at CTK we call it The Blessing.
