Celebrate the Resurrection with us on Easter Sunday! The CTR Youth and their  families invite you to an  Easter Sunday breakfast.
When: April 1 from  9 AM-10:30 AM
Where: CTR Fellowship Hall
All donations will help support the youth attending the 2018 Summer Mission Trip to Florida and the 2019 National Youth Gathering in Minneapolis.

Youth Easter Breakfast: This year our menu for the Easter breakfast will be casseroles, fruit and pancakes. We have decided that it would be easiest to all meet together Friday, March 30 before the Good Friday worship service to:
1. Set up the Fellowship Hall
2. Prep the fruit and casseroles
Please commit  to be here on Friday at 5:30 PM. The supplies for the casseroles will be here (including disposable pans!) as well as the fruit. We will need hands, preferably youth hands as well as adult, to assist in assembling casseroles and setting up the tables and paper products. Then we will need families to commit to taking home casseroles to bake OR arriving early on Sunday to help get them in the oven. And we will need servers and pancake makers for Sunday morning.
Please RSVP to me if you can come Friday to help and if you can be here Sunday to assist.
CTR’S VBS – June 11-15 – 9:00-12:00. For ages 3-5th Grade. Register online at
