Next Sunday: Fireside Express Line to Replace Donuts

Our donuts in the lobby will be disappearing soon – we were having trouble with donations not covering the costs. Instead, we will offer affordable pre-packaged items (as low as 50 cents each), such as string cheese, yogurt tubes, and fruit strips in an Express Line at the end of the Fireside Café counter. We will still offer coffee in the usual location – but quick snacks after service will only be available in the Fireside Express Line. Thank you!

Updating Small Group Info & Equipping Leaders

Small group leaders play a vital role in discipleship at CTR. We are updating our church database, and we want to make sure we have current information about every small group. And if you’re a leader, we want to support, equip, encourage and offer training, as well as learn from you. If you haven’t been receiving updates and resources, it’s possible your group’s information isn’t in the church database. To be supported and resourced by the church, please email Pastor Joe Pullen to provide your group’s information
