Our congregation offers regular opportunities for fellowship (with lots of good food, of course!) so that members can build friendships and a sense of community. Besides the activities listed below, you may also go to a list of current posts.
Coffee Time after Sunday Services
All members and friends are invited to assemble around the coffee table in the courtyard after both Sunday worship services. Members provide snacks for this fellowship opportunity and all voluntary donations go toward our World Hunger Appeal.
Wednesday Night Dinners
The best meal in town is served up in CTK’s parish hall for just $5 ($3 for children) each Wenesday of the school year. Members and friends are invited to join us starting at 5:30 to share a delicious full-course dinner prepared by our own volunteer chefs or grab a quick pizza-by-the-slice. After the meal you can participate in one of the multiple educational and music programs designed for all ages, or you can just hang out and enjoy the good fellowship of friends.
Consider volunteering yourself one Wednesday. You can live out your fantasy of being a master chef in our beautifully designed commercial grade kitchen or just help out chopping and serving. Not only do our volunteers get the satisfaction of serving others, they also get a free meal!
Dinner Time!, a new activity launched in September 2012, is a way for members and friends of the congregation to get to know each other better over a meal in their own homes. Those who choose to participate will meet in groups of up to ten persons every other month on a Saturday. The Witness and Assimilation Commission will mix the participants anew for each Dinner Time! event. Dates and signup sheets will be in the narthex throughout the summer, and the rest is left to the creativity of the group making its own rules – potluck or no potluck; home cooked or catered; rotating host homes or not. All Dinner Time! groups will meet for a joint party sometime at the end of the first year.
Dinner Time! is a great way to socialize in a fun and entertaining setting, meeting both new and longtime members, guests, friends and fellow worshipers. All adults are encouraged to sign up – all ages, individuals, couples, people with and without children.
A little known fact, but hardly a surprising one, is that those ladies who can sew such beautiful quilts can also whip up a slew of gourmet delights. And at least once a month they put together a luncheon worthy of the cover of Southern Living.
Piecemakers welcomes newcomers who want to learn how to quilt, and they promise to feed you well for your effort!
Friday Morning Bible Study always begins at 10:00 in the second floor Council room with thirty minutes of socializing and snacks. Members rotate the task of providing refreshments—everything from cheese grits to chocolate babka! This is a great chance to catch up with old friends and meet new ones before settling down with Pr. Moore to study the readings for the coming Sunday.
During the course of the church calendar year, we celebrate many special occasions.
An Easter Breakfast and Celebration is held between the two Sunday morning Easter services. We host a traditional potluck breakfast, an Easter egg hunt for our little ones, and an opportunity to “flower the cross.”
A Pentecost Picnic is celebrated on Pentecost Sunday each year. We assemble after the 10:50 AM service for lunch, followed by fun and games. Volunteers help with decorations, planning games and activities, and organizing food and drink service. See more photos.

The Christ the King Festival, our annual anniversary celebration, has activities on Christ the King weekend, the weekend before Thanksgiving. Festivities include the annual Christ the King Festival Dinner and Auction on Friday evening, along with our Service and Care Fair on both Friday evening and Sunday morning.
Rally Day is held on the Sunday before Labor Day weekend. This event marks the beginning of the new Sunday Church School year. A freshly cooked breakfast is provided, bibles are presented to our third grades, confirmands are introduced, and the children meet their Sunday Church School teachers.
