We understand that going to a new place can be a little stressful when you don’t know what to expect. So we’ve put together some information to help you know us a little better before you visit. Please know that we will do our best to make sure your first experience is a great one. By the way, we look forward to connecting with you and becoming friends.
Where do I go?
Come right in the front door and you will be greeted by a friendly face and directed/escorted anywhere you need. We want you to make yourself at home. Coffee is always on and ready for you!
What should I wear?
Whether it’s business casual or simply jeans, we want you to feel comfortable as you worship with us. We’re casual – so you can be too. The staff will mainly be in jeans or slacks. If you are more inclined to wear Sunday’s best, that is fine with us. We have people who are very casual all the way to ‘business casual’. We value who you are much more than what you wear..
What about my kids?
CTRC Kids envelopes all our children’s ministries. While you are in the main service on Sunday mornings or Bible Study on Wednesday nights, Kids Church, for ages 5-11, meets upstairs for a service of their own, designed especially for your kids. Kids are our priority, so rest assured that we’ll take excellent care of your child. Our staff of volunteers is ready to minister to your kids and answer any questions you may have. Their background checks have been cleared and they stand ready to serve you! Our goal is for your child to enjoy a safe and fun environment as they learn lessons from the Bible. Our teaching staff brings the lessons from the Bible to life. Kids are able to understand the Word of God and apply it to their lives. Kids Church is a place to celebrate, worship, and learn in a fun and safe atmosphere.
We also provide a staffed nursery to care for your little ones (birth to 4 years). Leaving your baby with a stranger can be tough, that is why we have made every effort to make it comfortable and safe when dropping your little ones off at the CTRC Nursery. When checking in your baby and his or her bag, you will receive a pager. If your child needs you, you will be paged to return to the nursery.
What can I expect in the Worship Service?
We LOVE to worship Jesus here at CTRC. We have a contemporary style of music that will help you connect with God. We also love to worship to some our favorite hymns from time to time. We believe in open worship as we express our love and reverence for God through clapping or raising of hands, singing, maybe our heads bowed in humility. Everyone has their own way of worship and that is OK!
Pastor Kevin brings the ministry of the Word of God with expression, enthusiasm, and encouragement so we may gain true understanding of the Bible and how it can direct our everyday life. You definitely will learn the Word and be challenged!
Why do I need to fill out the Guest Card?
We would like to connect with you and get to know you personally. We do not send “junk mail” or give your information out to other entities. It’s just our way of connecting with you and educating you about CTRC, who we are & what we believe.
You can also ask for prayer by simply writing your need on the back of the Guest Card or by asking one of our Staff Members personally. Our staff will pray throughout the week over every need on brought to us.
