If it's your first time at CtK, we are so glad you’ve joined us. We understand that showing up
at a new place for the first time can extremely overwhelming.
Here are a few details that might help you plan your visit.
+ When should I arrive?
We offer two services starting at 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM. Come a little early to get coffee and meet people. If you have young children it may take you a few minutes to get them registered and to their classes. If you have questions, please look for a volunteer with a name tag.
+ What happens on a Sunday?
Our services typically last about 90 minutes. We use rich biblical passages to lead us into song and prayer. We engage in community life together as we receive new members, hear testimonies, and highlight opportunities to love and serve our city. We hear a sermon from God’s word that is designed to engage our hearts and minds and give us practical application for our lives. We also partake of communion and rejoice together in the fellowship we have in Christ.
+ What type of music should I expect?
Our musical styles vary. We sing traditional hymns and we also sing more modern praise songs. The diversity of our music seeks to reflect the diversity of the city of Raleigh, and it is all aimed at delighting in Christ and glorifying God.
+ What do children do during worship?
Children are welcome to stay and participate in the worship service with their families. Nursery is available for infants through 2 year olds throughout both services beginning 15 minutes prior to the service start time. Children in preschool through 5th grade are invited to The Gathering in the multi-purpose room before the sermon, and can be picked up after the service in their classrooms. To learn more, visit our Children’s Ministry page or contact our Director of Children’s Ministry, Stephanie Massey here.
+ What should I wear?
Whatever you would like! Some dress casually and others dress in more “Sunday Best” - but everyone is welcome just as they are.
+ Where should I go?
We gather in the Warehouse District of Downtown Raleigh. Our address is 117 S. West Street. We are between The Dillon and the Morgan Street Food Hall. Click here for a layout of our building.
+ Where should I park?
In addition to free on-street parking surrounding our building, Citrix allows us to use their parking deck (directly across the street from our worship space). We have attendants who will allow you to enter this lot 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after each service starts. Once your car is parked you can leave it and exit anytime in the afternoon.
