Calling all 6th-12th graders! You are invited to Youth Rally at Camp Crucis, Dec. 2-3. Youth Rally is a one-night retreat filled with fun, fellowship, and spiritual growth. Our theme this year is "On the Mountain Top." The retreat begins at 8am Saturday morning and ends about 11:30am on Sunday. Cost is currently $75 but will increase after Thanksgiving.
The youth will sing carols and distribute Christmas cards to several care facilities close to CTR immediately following our worship service It will be a full day, but I think it will be well worth it.
Alice Meyer and Jackie Doss will lead and coordinate the carols. This includes the carols selected, practice times, and the leading of the "performance." Singing at the care facility is not about performance or artistic perfection. This is a ministry that is open to those with beautiful voices and to those like myself. So, please do not hesitate to pitch in and join the choir!
Helen Dent, Becky Powell, and Julie Foster will oversee our efforts to decorate Christmas cards. They will ensure that the content of the cards is appropriate to the season of Christmas and ensure we have an adequate number of cards to hand out.
Fr. Charles +
Hey guys and gals,
We meet from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. Our time together will be a combination
of praise and worship, lessons, small groups, and service.
A general overview of our meetings is below:
The second Sunday of each month will include praise and worship music led by the Youth Group, a time for reflection/teaching, and small and large group discussion.
The fourth Sunday of each month will remain somewhat flexible. We may cover a classic Christian book, study the Bible, or do service work.
In Christ’s love,
Fr. Charles +
On the first and third Sunday, the youth will meet as follows:
Girls in the youth room. The teachers are: Jamie Snow, Millie Watters and Sarah Boss.
Boys in the conference room. Fr. Charles is their teacher.
On the second and fourth Sunday, the girls and the boys will be together for joint teaching with Fr. Charles.

Fr. Charles, affectionately known as Bubba, is originally from Natchez, Mississippi, but he got to Texas as soon as he could in 2021 as our Assisting Priest! He became a Christian in November of 2003 and soon afterwards enrolled in Wesley Bible college where he received a B.A in Biblical Literature and Theology … to which then led to Wesley Biblical Seminary, graduating in 2015.
Fr. Bubba brings to his ministry passion in engaging the culture with the beauty and truth of the Gospel with teaching, apologetics, or just sitting down for a chat over a cup of coffee.(He is open to lunch too!) He is honored to be a part of reaching the youth of CTR and prays the Lord’s blessing over the coming generation of believers.
On a personal/family note… he is married to his lovely wife, Eva. There is no question, Fr. Charles loves kids. He has 6 of them (and they are all amazing) and the one born in November 2021 is with Eva;)!
