Clean Up Day at CtK
On June 12, 2021, at 9:00 in the morning, interested members and friends arrived at CtK to participate in a major cleanup endeavor of the campus and facility. Various members and friends used their skills to beautify and ready the church for the summer outdoor season. Outside temperatures were high, but they were not higher than the enthusiasm of the group to “get the job done.”
Dirt from the front driveway, left there earlier from previous garden work, was cleared away and distributed around the grounds so that the pavement could be swept and cleaned. Flowerbeds and rock beds were weeded and readied for summer growth. The sides and back of the church grounds that were too steep to mow were cut with a weed eater. The yard was mowed, and inside cleaning was done too. With CtK’s campus now ready for summer, the volunteers were ready for a few refreshments and lots of water after which everyone returned to their own Saturday activities.
Many thanks go out to the following people who gave of their time and energy to help with the cleanup:
Kayla Hefner, Beverly Stacy Dittmer, David Parr, Molly Bodewes, Dan Graves, Bob Harms, Carla and Don Gonville, Dave Mitzlaff, Catherine Hawk, Joan Forry, and Pete Olson.
(There may be others who lent a helping hand that I do not know about, and I apologize up front if I missed anyone.)
Thanks to all who participated, and thanks to the Membership Team for leading our group.
Respectfully submitted by Beverly Stacy Dittmer
News You Can Use
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 (“clicking” slides/power points that are displayed on the screen during worship), and lastly, a NEW and exciting kind of volunteer position — an 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.
