And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
We believe that one of the key purposes of the church is to gather together for worship and fellowship. One of our values is to be a welcoming community that is deliberate in its openness to all kinds of people.
We view our worship service as a weekly dialogue between our congregation and the Lord. In this conversation we pray, sing, hear the Word of God read and preached, celebrate the Lord’s Supper, give, and fellowship together. A sample bulletin for a service can be found here, but the best way to learn about our worship service is to visit our livestream or be our guest on a Sunday.
Our hope at CTK is to see people grow as they abide in Jesus. The Bible teaches us many ways to connect with the Lord, but two that we emphasize are the spiritual disciplines and small groups.
Richard Foster, Celebration of Discipline
Spiritual Disciplines are ways by which we seek to regularly abide in Jesus Christ. We sometimes refer to them as abiding practices. Simply put, they are Scriptural ways that disciples seek to be near Jesus and follow Him. Some of these practices involve the church, such as weekly worship, the Lord’s Supper, serving together, hospitality, and fellowship. Others are practices we engage in individually, such as Bible intake, prayer, silence, solitude, and fasting.
Some of these practices will be obvious at CTK, many are cultivated and learned in our small groups. Our hope is that all disciples of Jesus will see the importance of these disciplines in their life over time, and that our church will give avenues, accountability and resources to aid congregants in abiding deeply in Jesus.
Discipleship Groups are smaller groups, usually 5-8 people of the same gender, who meet for the purpose of following Jesus together and are a year-long commitment. These groups are focused on memorizing scripture, developing abiding practices, accountability, prayer, and learning how to share your faith. If you’d like to join a group, please contact our Discipleship Directors, Lorrie Deringer (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mark Landers (email@example.com) and they can provide you with more information.
Community Groups are mid-sized groups that are geographically based. These groups meet regularly to provide a way for new folks to meet the CTK community, to discuss the Bible, and to serve in the local community.
If you are interested in joining a community group, you can click on the locations using the Community Group Map below to find one that is convenient to your geographical area, works with your weekly schedule, and fits best for your family. You can also contact group leaders through this link for more information on their group if you are interested in joining.
If you have further questions about Community Groups, you can email one of our Discipleship Directors, Lorrie Deringer (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mark Landers (email@example.com).
We believe the church is to scatter out as salt and light for all spheres of life. Initially, our church will seek to equip our people to do this in two areas: our secondary callings (vocations) and our local community. We hope to grow more areas of ministry as the church grows.
At Christ the King Braselton, our mission is seen most simply as living out one’s faith at home, work, and play; this means that gathering outsiders to Jesus and growing insiders into Jesus is built into the fabric of our everyday lives. We utilize gift assessments and spiritual health indicators as keys to missional living, seeking kingdom advancement in other cultures and locations through community service, community outreach and engagement, church planting, and global missions.
“Let the little children come to me… Take care of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven have constant access to my Father.” — Jesus (Luke 18, Mark 18)
We at Christ the King Braselton joyfully embrace the calling of Jesus to go and make disciples of all people in the world, including children! Jesus tells us to baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit and teach them to obey everything that he has told us. “You can be sure that I will be with you always,” he promises. “I will continue with you until the end of the world.” It is our goal to create a safe place where children can get to know Jesus, to trust him, enjoy him and know that they are loved by him. Every adult volunteering with children in our church has undergone a thorough background check and child protection training. If you would like to learn more about our approach to child safety, you can view our Code of Conduct signed by each of our volunteers HERE.
We offer 4 opportunities for children’s discipleship during our worship service at 10:30. We also offer a family worship room with livestream available during the service.
-Birth through One year old
-Two through Three years old
-Four years old through Kindergarten
-First through Third Grade
-We also offer discipleship for 4th and 5th graders once a month before our worship service on Third Sundays from 9:45-10:15 AM.
All classes are reading, exploring, and experiencing God’s Word through The Gospel Story Bible curriculum and have the opportunity to worship along with the congregation via our livestream right in their own classrooms.
What to Bring: For our Birth through One and our 2’s and 3’s class we ask that any bottle or sippy cup be pre-labeled before the service. Don’t forget any diapers, wipes, change of clothes, and that special pacifier or comfort item. We serve a small snack in every classroom except the Birth through 1 year old class so please be sure to tell the team leader at the check-in kiosk and volunteers in your child’s class if he or she has any allergies.
Well Child Policy: For the protection of our children, families, and volunteers, please adhere to THESE GUIDELINES when determining if you should bring your child to church.
“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ…” — Ephesians 4:15
As CTK grows, we will be adding more events and ministry for youth. In the fall of 2022, we will begin with launching a youth ministry weekly gathering. For more details, contact us or check us out on Instagram using the links below.
As a church plant, there are always many opportunities to volunteer at CTK. We believe that volunteering is not only a great way to serve the church, but also a wonderful opportunity for fellowship and community. Whether you are setting up chairs together, serving coffee and delights alongside a friend, or having great conversation as you rock babies in the nursery, some of the most encouraging friendships in our church have been formed as our people have served alongside each other. If you are interested in volunteering, we would love to have you! Please simply complete our Volunteer Survey so we know what you are interested in, and a staff member or ministry lead will contact you as needs arise.
