Thursday evenings from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., April 22- May 13

Members and friends of CTK are invited to join Pastor Larson in a Zoom class on Thursday evenings reading one of the most influential recent texts that constructively puts Christian theology in conversation with contemporary science, The Faith of a Physicist by John Polkinghorne. It is a serious read. We will be introduced to waves of various theologians and scientists along the way, all of them concerned (as are we) about how to understand and state the faith in a way that fits the 21st century scientific mind.

An Exploration of Vocation

We continue our Sunday Forum series about “Vocation,” What is it? Is it our daily paid “job?” Just what is the vocation of pastors and deacons? What are and how do we all identify our vocations as the baptized laity, including as heads of families? This week our Deacons Rick Erickson, Beth Hartfiel,  and Courtney Webb will share how they understand their vocations. On the 25th, Deacon Ben will facilitate a discussion on the vocation of parenting and other means of nurturing children; and we’ll conclude with testimonies from “amongst us” as to how our daily vocations and professional roles align. A rich and inspiring set of reflections will help build and heal us as we grow in faith and action.April 18: The Vocation of Deacon

The Old Testament Psalms in the New Testament

presented by Professor Matthias Henze

No other book of the Old Testament is quoted more often in the New Testament than the Book of Psalms. Early Christians found in the psalms the words of Jesus. The story of Christ’s trial and crucifixion as it is told by the four Evangelists draws heavily on the psalms. In this short class, we will be looking at two psalms, Psalms 110 and 118, and trace their use in the Gospels. Continue reading

What Is Faith? An Online Lenten Class Taught By Pastor Duane

Thursdays at 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. 

Have you ever questioned whether you “believe”? What is belief? More basic, what is faith? Have you doubted your faith and so also your reason for being? One of the 20th century’s greatest theologians, in this groundbreaking and now classic book – Dynamics of Faith — defined faith as “the state of ultimate concern.”

Prior registration is needed and you must procure your own copy of the classic text. It is not expensive and is easily accessible. Hard print or digital versions are acceptable for class use, but not the audible version. Read chapter one before the first class (you WILL be excited). Register by emailing your interest to ctk@ctkelc.org. If you have further questions, email Pastor Duane at duanelarson@ctkelc.org.
