Sundays @4:30 - 6pm

Confirmation prep starts on February 3rd at the church. Led by Fr. Mark.

What is confirmation?

Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself the faith into which you have been baptized and your intention to live a life of committed discipleship. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming bishop. The Church also asks God to give you power through the Holy Spirit to enable you to live in the way of Jesus.

When you were baptized as a child, your parents and godparents were asked to declare publicly on your behalf that they believed in God and that they would bring you up to follow Jesus. They were asked to answer, on your behalf, that you had decided to turn away from everything which is evil or sinful and instead to turn towards Christ. At confirmation, you will renew these decisions and promises.

The declarations made by you will be made in front of the church congregation; the local Christian community will promise to support you and pray for you.

If you are interested in being confirmed, please contact Fr. Mark here.


Sunday School begins @9:30am!

This past school year was Confirmation Prep year! Many of our youth will be confirmed next Fall by our bishop. While we are growing and developing our youth ministry, Confirmation Prep is a HUGE piece of the puzzle.  Accordingly, the preparation, based on Acts 2:42, included various ways our students engage in the active Christian life - worship, discipleship, prayer, and mission


Acts 2:42 - They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

Fr. Mark, Director of youth ministry

At CTR, the whole purpose of youth ministry is to develop life-long disciples of Christ.  Through worship, discipleship, fellowship and mission, the youth of CTR are given opportunities to explore and enrich their faith.


I Timothy 4:12 declares, “Do not let anyone despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.”


Therefore, we at CTR commit ourselves to equipping our youth to learn how to serve today, that they may know how to lead tomorrow. Fr. Mark continues to equip CTR’s youth through Sunday school, Wednesday night Bible studies, mission trips, various outreach projects and he often has lunch with them throughout the school year.
