Classes are taught by Pastor Terry and Pastor Jay and consist of the Good News Class (nine weeks) and the Discipleship Class (three weeks). The Good News class is instruction on Christian doctrines and Biblical teachings. After attending the Good News Class, those who wish to become members of Christ The King attend the Discipleship Class, which introduces you to the ministries and mission of CTK. Every congregation is unique and in the Discipleship Class you will learn more about your new church home. There is no cost and you will not be asked to read out loud. Enrollment is not necessary. If you have questions, please call the Pastors or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com).
