NC MedAssist Mobile Clinic

coming to CTK

We have all heard the stories: families having to choose between needed medications and buying food or paying rent. North Carolina MedAssist (MedAssist) helps fill that gap. On April 29, CTK will be a part of this solution!

MedAssist is a non-profit organization based in Charlotte. It began as a free pharmacy serving people in Mecklenburg County, but now serves the entire state. With grants and donated drugs, MedAssist provides free prescription drugs by mail order to those who live in North Carolina, have no access to insurance and earn less than 300% of the Federal Poverty Level ($90,000 for a family of four).

MedAssist has also started a Mobile Clinic that travels the state to provide free over-the-counter (OTC) medications with no income limitation. On April 29, CTK will host the Mobile Clinic with the goal of distributing up to 10 free OTC drugs to 1,000 area residents! No pre-registration or income screening is required. The UNC School of Nursing and volunteer professionals will provide free health screenings. To host such a large event, your help is needed on Friday April 28 and Saturday, April 29.

On Friday afternoon, help is needed to unload the MedAssist van and assist with setup of tables and chairs outside the Sanctuary, in the Atrium and in Nagle Hall. On Saturday, we will need parking attendants, greeters, registration and form assistants, interpreters, runners, shoppers and stockers. There will be two shifts of volunteers on Saturday—one from 8am to noon and the other from 11am to 3pm. Training will be at the beginning of each shift.

Volunteer and signup information will be available soon in Church Center. For questions, please contact Marianne Cockroft ( or Lee Moore ( This is truly an opportunity to Learn, Live, and Tell the Story of God’s grace!

New Adult Sunday School classes begin Sunday, February 26

Lent is a time when we are called to reflection, repentance, confession and perhaps, a change in our habits. Tish Warren’s book, Liturgy of the Ordinary, and our conversations during the class will help to illuminate how our everyday activities, from waking to making the bed, from losing our keys to sitting in traffic, from eating leftovers to drinking tea, can be rethought and re-enacted as a liturgy that deepens our faith life, enhances our relationships and draws us closer to God and to one another. Please join us on February 26 at 9:50am in the Parlor for our first discussion on chapters one and two. Get the book today.

This class, Wendell Berry, and the Sabbath Poetry of Lent, will allow us to reflect together on poetry, nature, and sabbath. In this study, Bible texts walk hand in hand with Berry’s sabbath vision of the natural world, and together they suggest simple, accessible practices we can try out this Lent! Join us for this conversation Sunday mornings beginning February 26 either in West Fellowship or by Zoom during the season of Lent. Check out the Church Center group under Faith Formation for more information and materials for this class.

Bold women preach on March 5

Sunday, March 5 is Bold Women's Sunday.  Come and hear Pastor Athena and Rachel Geddes preach and celebrate the bold women in our congregation and in our lives. Women of the congregation can be bold too by helping with various roles during the worship service.  If you are interested in helping, contact Pastor Athena at

Book drive benefits children!

CTK is participating in the Annual WAKE Up and Read Children’s Book Drive. Books for ages birth through 12 can be dropped off in the Atrium and will be donated by WAKE Up and Read. This book drive strives to help ensure children’s reading success, assure school readiness and increase learning opportunities. There are three ways to help: new books that are needed can be found on the wish list on the home page in Church Center, gently used books can be donated, and financial donations can also be made online. Help bridge the gap so that kids in need can fall in love with reading! Donations are accepted through February 28.

Join us Wednesdays for Lenten Vespers Service
Give the gift of life! Donate blood March 8.
