What's Happening at CTS?
Come for breakfast between 8:30—9:30am on January 27th and meet our High School Mission Trip Team. They will be cooking and serving a delicious hot breakfast to fuel you for the annual meeting later that morning. Gluten-free options will be available. Voluntary donations are much appreciated as this will be their only group fundraiser for their trip.
WOMEN’S HAPPY HOUR
CTS Women and Friends: Take a breather from your daily routine and Join us for Happy Hour (4-6) Friday, February 1st at Murphy's Bar and Grill in Louisville. The first round of appetizers are courtesy of the Fellowship committee, so don't miss out! All women are welcome so come on out and take some time to catch up with old friends and meet some new ones, as well! Sign up HERE so we know how many tables to reserve.
We have a 6:15 reservation at Inks and Drinks at the Flatirons Mall where we’ll be learning to paint a mountain sunset scene while drinking wine (thereby tapping into our creative minds). This event will conveniently coincide with the parents night out on Friday, February 8th so you can drop your kids at CTS for babysitting while supporting the mission trip! Please let Dave Hwang know if you plan to attend so we reserve the correct number of spots. Also, let Dave know if you are interested in joining Krista and him for a quick dinner nearby at 5:15. Hope to see you there!
MEALS NEEDED FOR OHEYSIS
We need folks to provide meals for the Oheysis youth in the new year. The HS youth meet every other Tuesday for a meal and fellowship. Please consider signing up HERE to help out with this valuable ministry by either providing a meal, joining the youth as a caring adult, or both.
You're invited to share your gifts by teaching Learning Hour! We need volunteers who will commit to teaching a 4-week block with one class (Pre-K, 1st-2nd grade, 3rd-4th grade, 5th-MS, and HS.) The Faith Formation Task Force recommended this format because it helps consistent caring adults build relationships with kids in our community. We have the materials to equip you and hope to recruit two teachers per block so that you can work in a team. Please let P Steph know if you have questions. Sign up HERE for a block or two!
BOULDER HOMELESS SHELTER
CTS volunteers prepare and serve dinner every fourth Friday of the month. BHS no longer has meal seasons. All shifts now run from 4:30-7:45pm. The 2019 sign-up can be found HERE. Volunteers 12 to 18 years of age must be directly supervised by an adult. If you have teens, this is a great way to volunteer as a family!
SPECIAL CELEBRATION AND ANNUAL MEETING
We will have a different schedule in order to celebrate last year’s ministries during our Annual Meeting on January 27th. Start the day with a Fellowship Breakfast provided by our Mission Trip Team (donations appreciated!) from 8:30-9:30am. Both services come together in one combined worship service at 9:30am. Our annual meeting will follow at 10:30am. We must have a quorum for this meeting so please plan to attend and celebrate all that has happened, pass our 2019 budget, and elect 2019 Council.
BoBro HS SNOW RETREAT
Join other high schoolers for a snow retreat at Rainbow Trail. You have options to ski or tube, or hang out at camp and sled, relax, play games or whatever you choose! We will leave around 4pm Friday, March 15 and arrive back around 3pm Sunday, March 17. Please sign up HERE with CTS and register HERE with Rainbow Trail by February 15th. You can also find more information on pricing on the registration link. This is guaranteed to be a fun weekend—don’t miss out!
PARENT’S NIGHT OUT
Beat the Valentine's crowd and get your date in early on February 8th - we'll watch your kids! Or just stay at home and binge on Netflix without interruptions. You can help support our HS Youth by leaving your kids with us for a night of crafts, games, and a ton of fun! Drop off at CTS any time after 5:00pm and pick them up any time before 9:00pm. All proceeds go directly to this summer’s High School Mission Trip to Crownpoint, NM. Cost is $25 for one child, $40 for two children, or $50 for three children. Friends are welcome!
To avoid any allergy issues, please have your child eat beforehand or bring a sack dinner/snack. Please register your kiddos HERE.
CTS will once again be hosting a sock drive for the Boulder Homeless Shelter, where socks are in great demand during the winter months. On February 10th, you can either donate new socks (preferably wool), or you may purchase 1 pair for $5 or 3 pair for $10 in the Narthex and drop them in the box for BHS. Those funds will then be used to buy additional socks. This event is sponsored by a Thrivent Action Grant. Lets’ see if we can beat last year’s donation of 216 socks!
WOMEN’S SERVICE GROUP
The group meets the second Saturday of the month from 10am to noon to continue making hygiene kits for girls. Cotton fabric and flannel is always needed and any monetary donations would be appreciated. Contact Jan Rogers or Ellie Ramsey with questions.
MEN’S BREAKFAST & BIBLE STUDY
Join us the first Saturday of the month from 8:30-10:00am when the men's monthly gathering resumes. Men are invited to the best breakfast in town. Feed your body and your soul.
