How might we lean more fully into God during this time… and all times?

These opportunities typically take the shape of retreats, soul care groups, seminars/courses, spiritual direction.

Adult Discipleship at CKPC

What are the ways in which the people of God are formed? Jesus discipled through teaching, living by example, and above all doing a whole lot of life with his followers. It would be impossible for us to capture on a webpage how discipleship happens at CKPC, but here are some of the programs and offerings we have that begin and facilitate the life of discipleship together.

We as Christians have a mandate to be nonconformists.  We are called to be people of conviction, not conformity; of moral nobility, not social respectability. Every true Christian is a citizen of two worlds, the world of time and the world of eternity. We are, paradoxically, in the world and yet not of the world.
