From the fall until spring we usually offer in-person classes for children ages 3 to grade 6, reading many of the lessons that are featured in worship. See the monthly newsletter for a schedule of classes, which are held about twice a month. As you might expect, COVID has caused a disruption in these sessions.
Teenagers attend classes for two years to prepare to make public Affirmation of Baptism. Adults attend classes as the need arises. The Bible and the Luther's Small Catechism are important guides.
Bible studies are offered throughout the year. The pastor leads sessions for all members and friends of the congregations. We also participate in on-line studies, sometimes with members of other congregations. These discussions are intended to nurture faith, make students more familiar with scripture, and foster friendships.
When COVID restrictions are not in place men from the congregation gather about once a month, often for breakfast. Time is devoted to a shared meal, discussion and special events.
As restaurants re-open the women at CTR will meet about once a month for a meal and conversation.
In the fall members usually gather for a weekend retreat that provides opportunities for worship, recreation and spiritual renewal. In recent years we have met at Mont Tremblant in late September, but cancelled the event in 2021. We look forward to be able to do so again as the pandemic subsides.
