Town Hall to Discuss Affirming MDLC

Saturday May 15 at 1:00 PM In Person, Parish Hall
Thursday May 20 at 7:00 PM Online

We invite CTK members to attend one of  “Town Hall” meetings to discuss our recommendations to affirm Memorial Drive Lutheran Church’s invitation to CTK for us to assume its resources and ministry. All members should have received a special mailing detailing the recommendations and announcing the Town Halls about this project, now revived after the pandemic hiatus. These meetings provide an opportunity for conversation, clarification, and new input on the current recommendations. Depending on feedback from these meetings, a special congregational meeting may be scheduled in early June to vote on the joining of the congregations. If you have any questions, please contact the church office at ctk@ctkelc.org.
