What Will Your Ministry Be?
We’re all called to and created for ministry. We all have a mission field in our daily lives. And throughout the week, we practice some of that ministry together. Check out where we serve and where you might like to join us.
Serve the Poor & Marginalized
Saturdays, morning & afternoon
HeavenTrain is a brightly painted bus that acts as a “church on wheels” to serve children in Cleveland’s poorest neighborhood. Volunteers deliver food and share the Gospel one Saturday a month from May through December, either on a morning or afternoon shift.
2nd Sundays, 3-5pm
The women of Eager Hands use their skills to serve others, making hats and blankets for the homeless, chemo patients and hospice patients. Whatever your skill level, you’re invited to join the circle!
Rescue the Perishing
Volunteers deliver and serve about 200 meals to Cleveland’s hungry each week on E. 18th and Payne Ave. We also aspire to strengthen each person’s confidence and joy in Jesus and to encourage personal and spiritual growth through prayer.
Find Support & Recovery
Healing Together is a Christ-centered support group based on the 12 steps and pointed toward Jesus as the group’s Higher Power. All are welcome, whatever your addiction or struggle, whatever your faith and regardless of whether you have one right now. Every one of us needs healing, and none of us recovers alone. Let’s find it together.
Family A.R.C.H. Support Group
2nd & 4th Tuesdays, 6:30-8pm
Families of Addiction Receiving Comfort and Healing (Family A.R.C.H.) provides a place of support for anyone struggling with the addiction of a loved one. Learn more about addiction, boundaries and how to help; share experience and difficulties; and receive comfort. Discussions are confidential, and anyone 18 and older is welcome.
Here, men who’ve struggled with addictions or desire a victorious, pure life can find support. Men struggling with addictions of any kind are welcome to join. Pure Victory is based on the 12 steps of A.A. and maintains strict confidentiality.
Mothers of Preschoolers (M.O.P.S.)
2nd Fridays, 9:15-11:30am
Between September and May, moms come to enjoy breakfast, craft time, group discussion and new friends. Babysitting is provided in our nursery for younger children, and older kids can play, do crafts and more in our classrooms. All mothers and children are welcome!
Nurture Your Spirit & Growth
In a spiritual direction conversation, you and your director hold a space of stillness and attention in order to notice together the ways that God is speaking in your daily life, in your desires and in times of silence. Appointments are typically one hour every month.
CTK has several biblically and theologically trained spiritual directors on staff to meet with you through a period of discernment and decision, to journey with you in the next phase of your spiritual development, or even to help you plan an individual spiritual retreat.
Retreats & Prayer Experiences
Retreats are simply a way for us to break from the ordinary to experience the God of our everyday life with a special attention and focus.
Every other winter, we facilitiate an off-site weekend retreat soaked in prayer and reflection.
Between biennial retreats, we host half-day prayer experiences one Saturday each quarter to continue exploring new and deeper ways that we can relate to an extraordinary God in the midst of the ordinary.
Where Do I Start?
The best way to learn about our community and ministires is to come hang out with us. Here’s what you can expect when you visit.
How Do I Get Connected?
We’re excited to have you visit, and if you feel any leading to keep hanging out, we want you to be connected. Here’s what that looks like.
How Can I Join
a Small Group?
Church happens on more than Sundays. Being part of a community is about sharing life together, and we invite you to share life with us.
Beliefs are important because our convictions shape how we live. What we believe and how we live is ultimately determined by what we love.
