Getting Connected with CTR

Life Groups

Life Groups typically consist of about 10-15 people, and are a great way to meet new people, make lasting friendships, grow in a relationship with God, and make a difference in the life of someone else. Life Groups offer our best environment of ministry care, support, and connection.

How to join our life groups...

Fr. Charles is

our Life Group Coordinator

Together, in a life group, we are able to connect with each other and encounter God together in Christ centered community. Life groups are the heartbeat of our church and are based out of Acts 2:42-47

Fr. Charles coordinates the Life Group programs at CTR. Whether you have questions on what Life Groups are, or which one or more to join, He will help you get connected to the other members of the CTR family.
