This coming Sunday, CTK will be hosting our annual lake baptism.  Below is a message that went out to our congregation.  We want to invite our neighbors and friends to join us for a Power Full time of joy.  Baptism is a public proclamation of our willingness to die to self and life for Christ.  New believers do this as an outward symbol of an inward commitment.  Sometimes, believers in Christ will renew this commitment by joining in.


This is a celebration and power – full time of fellowship as we come together to support those that are starting, or renewing their journey.  For more in formation, we invite you to read on…

CtK Annual Lake Baptism ~ Camp Thunderbird ~ September 17th

You are invited to the CtK Annual Lake Baptism at Camp Thunderbird on September 17th from 1pm to 5pm.  Whether you or a loved one is getting baptized, or you are there to support your CtK family who is getting baptized, it is a day you DO NOT WANT TO MISS!  It will start with a potluck lunch and then be followed by a beautiful baptism in Lake Wylie.  Here’s a schedule for the day,..

  • 1:00 – 1:30pm ~ arrive and get food set-up (Please bring a dish or two to share)
  • 1:30 – 3:00pm ~ eat lunch with your CtK family
  • 2:30 – 3:30pm ~ Baptism instruction and preparation (for those getting baptized and participating in the baptism)
  • 3:30 – 4:30pm ~ Lake Baptism
  • 4:30 – 5:00pm ~ Wrap-up, clean-up and say goodbye to each other!

You have the opportunity to help make the day special for those being baptized by serving in the areas of set-up, clean-up and/or hospitality.  If you would like to volunteer at the CtK Annual Lake Baptism, please email Kim Houston at as soon as possible and let her know!

The weekend of September 16-17 is going to be a great weekend of living out the mission of CtK and I’m excited to share it with you!  If you have any questions about either of these opportunities, let me know!

Grace and peace,
