CTR Ladies’ Annual Retreat

"Bringing sisters together to grow in Christ”

Saturday, February 29 10 to 3pm

Who do you talk to when you are really excited about something, need encouragement or someone just to talk to? Is it a family member, or a close friend? Or maybe, you think you don’t have one? Well, you do. At CTR, we are a community of believers that desire to live 1Thessalonians 5:11. How do we do that? Come find out and join the ladies from CTR, on Saturday, February 29th at Camp Crucis on our annual retreat. We will listen to guest speakers, and discuss ways we can encourage and build one another up as sisters in Christ!

As an added treat, there will be a special surprise entertainment!

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

'The Storyteller's Secret' by Sejal Badani

From the bestselling author of Trail of Broken Wings comes an epic story of the unrelenting force of love, the power of healing, and the invincible desire to dream.

Nothing prepares Jaya, a New York journalist, for the heartbreak of her third miscarriage and the slow unraveling of her marriage in its wake. Desperate to assuage her deep anguish, she decides to go to India to uncover answers to her family’s past.

Intoxicated by the sights, smells, and sounds she experiences, Jaya becomes an eager student of the culture. But it is Ravi—her grandmother’s former servant and trusted confidant—who reveals the resilience, struggles, secret love, and tragic fall of Jaya’s pioneering grandmother during the British occupation. Through her courageous grandmother’s arrestingly romantic and heart-wrenching story, Jaya discovers the legacy bequeathed to her and a strength that, until now, she never knew was possible.

The ladies will meet on the second Monday of the month. The next one is on March 9th 11:00-1pm. at CTR.  Bring your lunch. Carolyn King will be the discussion leader. You may purchase the book on Amazon here.

Finding God faithful

Wednedsays, January 15th - March 4th

10am - noon

Finding God Faithful, by Kelly Minter

Trace the path of Joseph’s life in the Book of Genesis to observe how God’s sovereignty reigns, even in our darkest moments. Learn to recognize when God is working during periods of waiting, trust God’s plan when life doesn’t make sense, and rest in the sufficiency of His presence in every circumstance. His provision is enough, His presence is constant, and His purpose is unstoppable.

The ladies will meet at Laura O'Brien's home. Please contact her here for location.

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.”
