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.

life groups @ctr

We are three different types of Life Groups.

Our Life Groups, with their leaders, are listed here.

If you are interested in joining one, have questions, please contact our church.

study

These studies vary from Bible studies to book studies, Currently, we offer 9 studies throughout the year. Some meet once ot twice a month, where as others, such as Bible Studies may meet once a week for 4 to 7 weeks depending on the study.

supper

One of our first Life Groups, is our popular Supper Group. Typically, each Supper Group consists of 8 people and they meet in homes or restaurants to share  a meal about once a month.

social

We currently offer two social Life Groups. One is the monthly Country and Western Dancing and the other we call Community Events. These events offer us the opportunity enjoy such events such as a Kimbell Exhibit or the Botanical Gardens together.

How to join our life groups...

Caron Overbeek 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


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