  • Strategic Planning 2015 - Strategies By Goal

    Goal 1 CTK is a caring community committed to empower all people

    1. Increase engagement of CTK members by 10% within the next 12 months from the start of implementation. (FP1) Scott Nelson

    Your Partnership Promise is now out and being distributed as an effort to invite members to commit to

    participating in the work of the church. Watch for more PR on it come September.

    2. Create 3 new initiatives that address the need to be more welcoming to all (by Sept 2016). (FP2) Sue Raasch Catherine Berg Darla Austin

    Changes to the welcome area in the narthex, experimentation with small tables during fellowship hour during

    the summer months, additional ideas have also been presented.

    3. Create a facility mission team by Feb 2016 to oversee the usage, operations, and safety of the church facility currently and into the future. (FP3) Lynn Austin-Dave Raasch

    This strategy was on hold during the transition to a new property manager, and since that time many things

    have been happening and changing! May want to wait until HVAC implementation is complete, then look at

    what needs are/remain.

    4. Implement 5 new initiatives that enhance the care of creation by July 1, 2016. FP4) John Frey

    A mission team presented a number of proposals for continued facility changes to be green.

    Recommendation as well for some educational initiatives in this regard for members to consider care of

    creation in their own lives. That recommendation is currently living in a Goal 2 strategy.

    5. Increase discipleship of service opportunities outside of CTK by 100 additional people and tell their story by Nov 1, 2016. (Pro3) Matt Norland

    Tree planting this spring; watch for highway cleanup on Gods Work Our Hands Sunday and a servant

    night for the congregation on Wednesday, November 2.

    6. To create and maintain Care Groups, encompassing all members, providing servant care, including but not limited to meals, prayers, and visits to begin in 2017. (Ser1) Jodie Wallschlaeger

    Lots of conversation, and a newly expressed ideas to think about care groups using social media. Servant

    Commission continues their conversation.

    7. Create a culture that maximizes the CTK volunteer force. (JP3) OPEN

    This strategy has been reworked by the Justice and Peace Commission after consultation with the council;

    advocacy position remains open while the new Your Partnership Promise forms are being completed.

  • Pastoral Report

    CTK Ministries 2017

    February Senior Pastors Report Pastor Patrick Patterson

    Administrative

    Financials After a rousing end of the calendar year, our January numbers slumped a bit. Our actual

    income came in at $57,000, which is $9,700 under budget. Our expenses for the month were $81,000, which

    was about $3,500 over budget. That gives us a net of $12,800 behind budget YTD.

    RRR projects The contractor and subs are still cleaning up some pesky punch list items. We have not

    made the final payment to WEB and have told them we wont until all of the details are completed to our

    satisfaction. Were holding on before obtaining bids for the parking lot repaving.

    Crossroads Campus Ministry The ministry at Crossroads continues with the help of many coalition congregations in the absence of a full-time pastor. Trish and I alternate office hours on Thursday

    afternoons and do a weekly Bible study with students beyond the Wednesday preaching rotation. My

    meetings and conversations with synod, churchwide and various other campus ministries continue to help

    zero in on what is possible in moving
