News You Can Use 

CtK’s Post-pandemic Opening

As CtK begins to open post-pandemic, we are calling on everyone to prayerfully consider how you might use your time and talents to help propel CtK forward in this new hybrid in-person/techno-based way of doing church. We have the technology. Now, we need YOU! Currently, we are seeking to fill ALL categories of worship volunteers:

  • Altar Guild Assistants
  • Worship Assistants
    • Ushers
    • Readers
    • Communion assistants
    • Soundboard/camera operators
    • Presentation computer operators
    • Online church host. This person would be basically acting as a “virtual greeter/online chat person” for worship services

If you feel you might be interested in any of these volunteer positions and/or if you have any questions, please give Pastor Tim a call (970-247-5310) or touch base with him between Sunday services. Training will be provided for all volunteers. Thanks for your consideration. There will also be an opportunity to sign up for all of our volunteer spots during CtK’s Rally Day — “God’s Work. Our Hands.” to be held on Sunday, September 12th.  Stay tuned for further details.

Salvation Army is looking for bell ringers again this year. The system is different, however. If you are interested in ringing, go to their sign-up website. They are ringing through Dec. 24th.  


There, you can pick a date, time, and location to ring. CtK has always been very supportive of the Salvation Army’s Christmas campaign. Let’s do the same this year.

Save the Dates–December 

CtK’s Noisy Offering designee for the month

of December is the Community Emergency Assistance Coalition 

Looking Ahead 

Holiday Hoopla! – Sunday, December 12 at 10-ish am (after 9am Worship)

Build a “Gingerbread” “House” (we use graham crackers, and you certainly don’t have to build a house) with your family and friends. You can build whatever you want with the candy building blocks provided. It always gets everyone into the Christmas Spirit! Let Pastor Tim know if you are planning to join us. 

Live Nativity – Sunday, December 19th at 8:30am

Throw on a costume and be a part of CtK’s annual re-creation of the Nativity Story. Show up at 8:30am to be assigned a role and a costume. No memorization or acting experience required – we basically push you out onto the front lawn when your part of the story is told. It’s super easy and super fun for ALL ages. Bring your well-behaved dogs and we’ll put them in costumes, too. Let Deacon Mandy know if you can be a part of the holy hilarity. 

Christmas Eve Services – Friday, December 24th at 5:00pm & 7:00pm

Be sure to join us on Christmas Eve for our live, in-person worship services. We will live-stream the service at 5:00pm. Join us in-person or online @ 5:00pm. Come celebrate this very special time of year with us here at CtK!  https://ctkdurango.online.church
