Got Questions? Our Staff may have your answers!

For as long as we can remember, the best way to learn is to ask a question. As a child, our questions may have started with 'Why' and eventually the questions may have started with 'How come?'. However, as we get older, our questions may still start with these, or other phrases but the simple answers we were once given may not be sufficient. As Christians, our go to place is first the Bible but what if we need more? Maybe whether Christian or not, we need a person to answer our questions. At CTR, we welcome questions whether it be as simple as '"When is our worship time?' or "Do you have child care?”  To more theological questions such as "What do I need to do to be saved?" or

How do we know God exists?"
