Releasing God's Riches . . . into the next generation.

Faith Legacy at CTK

Jesus’ approach was to teach the adults and bless the children. This is why every age and stage of the Faith Legacy series involves parents blessing their child. The Faith Legacy series gives Christian parents what they need to fulfill their God given responsibility to make disciples in the home—age appropriate resources, sage advice, and the fellowship of other parents. And, because the whole congregation is united in this mission, each step concludes with a blessing event that involves the whole worshiping community.

Who leads the Faith Legacy classes?

The Elders of CTK, with partnership help and support from pastors, staff, and volunteers, are involved in the leadership of Faith Legacy. It is truly a team effort. (The actual content is offered through video presentations by the Faith Legacy developers.)

Where do I start?

Each family needs to start where their children are developmentally. It may be necessary to make a choice if you have more than one child. For more information about upcoming Faith Legacy classes please call the church office at 291.360.7936.
