Women's Ministries at CTR
Christ the Redeemer Church exists to glorify and enjoy God, as we build a community of gospel-centered people. Our women's ministries exist to encourage that mission in the lives of the women involved in and associated with CTR.
A letter from the Women's Ministry Team
As a Women's Ministry Team, we would like to foster an atmosphere of cooperation, cohesiveness and unity as we move forward this year with six areas of women's ministry. Our goal for these six areas is that they would work together to invite, inform, encourage and equip the women in our care. We are hopeful that our structure will provide a framework in which these ministries would thrive and that women would be encouraged to participate, enjoy, and assist in the body that is the CTR women's ministry. It is also our hope that we would be able to encourage women to share their many and varied gifts in areas outside specific women's ministries. Our overall mission is the same as Christ the Redeemer Church's; to glorify and enjoy God, as we build a community of gospel-centered people. We hope that you will join us in this journey. There are many ways to get involved and many opportunities for service. We are looking forward to sharing with you in this ministry.

Team leaders for the Care Team are Lori Schlect and Vanessa Kynes.
This team is involved in identifying and pairing those women who desire a mentoring relationship with other women who would love to come alongside them as a mentor. The Mentor Team leader is Robin Einerson.
Tots and Co.
Tots and Co. is a ministry that meets on Friday mornings during the school year at the church. It is a great outreach to parents in our West Central Community and a perfect way to invite friends and neighbors with small children to come and hear about Jesus. Our team leaders for Tots and Co. are Sheena Knapp and Lisa Branham.
Women's Retreat Team
This is the team that plans and organizes our annual women's retreat. That includes determining speakers and presenters, and also planning the activities, food, and fun. Our team leaders for our retreat are Emily Malone, Sheena Knapp, and Ting Vollmer.
This is a team that plans, organizes, and facilitates events that will encourage connection and fellowship between women who are associated with CTR. There is lots of room for creative thinking in this area. The Connections Team leader is Kathy Lejameyer.
Women's Bible Study Team
Women's Bible Study has always been the backbone of our women's ministry and this team is the one that handles the planning and organizing of the Tuesday Women's Bible Study and the Wednesday evening Bible Study. Sara Rosenquist leads the Bible Study Team.
