Come join this dynamic new group of Lutherans and Muslims from the Blue Mosque at this special date and time, here at CTK (usually this happens on the third Tuesday of the month, but not this time). We’ll read and discuss parallel texts from The Bible and the Qur’an while deepening understanding of our own and our neighbors’ faith. We’ll also enjoy a meal together, provided by CTK members. All here in the council room, done by 7:30.
Children and youth join to make music in worship during Advent and Christmas. Music director Rick Erickson and Music Associate Mary Joy Silmaro lead rehearsals that include music, movement and reading. We will practice music, and prepare Advent Lessons and Carols on December 8, and for the Pagaent on Sunday, December 14. We invite all children and youth old enough for singing and group activities to sign up. Registration can be done via link in Thursday evening emails, online, and in an email to be sent to all families. With questions please email Rick Erickson.

Paul and Marie Monroe have graciously volunteered to prepare turkey & dressing for a family-style Thanksgiving Day dinner in the parish hall. Any students who aren’t going home, young adults without plans, and all adults without family in town are invited to join them. If you would like, you may bring a covered dish to share (salad, vegetable, bread, dessert, fancy drinks, etc.). For an accurate count, please notify Beverly Davis. However, if you don’t sign up, you are still welcome: everyone will eat their fill and we’ll have baskets of food left over. Thanksgiving dinner will begin around 11:45 a.m. and run until the turkey tryptophan kicks in.

After a Christmas break, we’ll resume in January. The spring season will talk about Death, The Future of Humans in a Cyber Era, and more. Come, tap your feet, explore challenging themes, drink some beer, pray and praise. Every (usually) fourth Friday.
