Faith Formation

Growing in Faith

Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. Colossians 2:7


At CtK, we value Christian education as a way of worshiping God and equipping ourselves to serve in truth and spirit.

Our goal is to provide a rich variety of opportunities for people of all ages to deepen their relationship with God. Through hearing, studying and sharing God’s living word, we can each develop an informed faith.
