Women's Christian Book Study

1st tuesday of the month @7pm

The book the women will be studied this Spring is 'Nothing to Prove' by Jennie Allen.

They meet next on March 2nd.

Are you afraid that you're not good enough, smart enough, or spiritual enough to do the things you think you should? Jennie Allen says stop striving and simply enjoy God! In this encouraging book she reminds you that even when you don't measure up, God does - so you can cease struggling and rest in his completeness.

As you wade into the refreshing truth of the more-than-enough life Jesus offers, you'll experience the joyous freedom that comes to those who are determined to discover what God can do through a soul completely in love with Him.

The women meet in homes. Please contact Sarah if you have any questions and if you want to join them. Simply send her an e-mail by clicking on the image to the left. Or you can contact our church!

Ctr Ladies' mONTHLY bOOK cLUB

Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover

Tara Westover grew up preparing for the End of Days, hoping that when the World of Men failed, her family would continue on, unaffected. She hadn't been registered for a birth certificate. She had no school records because she'd never set foot in a classroom, and no medical records because her father didn't believe in doctors or hospitals. According to the state and federal governments, she didn't exist. As she grew older, her father became more radical, and her brother more violent. At sixteen, Tara decided to educate herself. Her struggle for knowledge would take her far from her Idaho mountains, over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge. Only then would she wonder if she'd traveled too far. If there was still a way home.

The ladies will meet on the second Monday of the month. The next one will be in April but as the second one falls on easter Monday, the new date hasn't been confirmed. The time is 11:00-1pm. at CTR.  Bring your lunch. Carolyn King will be the discussion leader. You may purchase the book on Amazon here.

Ladies' course on Experiencing Discipleship Through the Spiritual Disciplines


Do you have a hunger for the Lord?

Do you have a desire to go deeper in your spiritual journey?

Do you yearn to sit at the feet of Jesus as did Mary and listen?

If so, you are not alone. Saints throughout the ages have desired to hear the voice of the Lord as a disciple of Christ. They have yearned to obey the Lord’s commands as did the saints of old.

Join us on Thursdays 1:00-3:00 from January 30 – March 26 for an 8-week experiential course as we practice and study the spiritual disciplines of discipleship, listening to the Lord through prayer, meditation, study, fasting, solitude, spiritual gifts and celebration.

To sign up for the class, contact our leader, Marty Norman. Each participant will work at her own pace as she practices new ways of hearing the voice of God. Join us as we sit at the feet of Jesus, like Mary, and share the journey of discipleship with the Risen Christ.

Skylar O'Neal, women's ministry

The purpose of CTR’s Women’s Ministry is to unite women of all ages and interests in order to serve Jesus and to get to know each other better as the body of Christ.

Skylar coordinates and oversees the various women’s events over the year, including different outreach events in our community involving the women of our church; the Ladies Christmas luncheon that is held in December and the HOPE Farm Mother’s Day dinner in May.

Caron Overbeek,

 Life Group Coordinator

Discipleship is one of our core values, taken right from one of our mission statements, the Great Commission: Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And lo, I am with you always, even to the ends of the earth.”

It is the hope and goal of CTR that all our members will be equipped to share the Gospel with all people. Caron coordinates the discipleship of women at CTR with Bible studies, retreats and events that will draw women into a deeper relationship with Jesus and one another. And this is taken from our second mission statement, the Great Command - Jesus said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first and Great Commandment, and the second is like it: you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
