Shabbat: Optional Color theme: Green/Turquoise
Torah Service: 10:30 AM-12:00 PM. Nursery available for ages 5 and under.

Guests are welcome to stay for Oneg. Members and regular attendees, please bring enough food for your family and some to share with our guests. Parents, please be with your children and help with their portions. After Oneg, your dishes will be put on the small table in the foyer and help with clean-up will be appreciated so we can begin our afternoon services on time.
If you are coming to CTL after 10:30 AM, please enter through double doors, walk through the Oneg room and enter sanctuary by using the back hallway. This will help with the flow of our service that is in progress. Thanks…Andy

Highlights from the 36th Annual Rabbi’s Conference: “Understanding the Times”
Philippians 3:12—It is not that I have already obtained it or already reached the goal–no, I am pursuing the goal in order to win the prize offered by Adonai’s upward calling in Messiah Yeshua.”
We as human beings have core longings that need to be met before we can reach our goal. These are: (1) Love, acceptance where we are now in our walk with Yeshua (2) Belonging to a congregation or fellowship (3) Signifiance, everyone is important (4) Safety (5) Security (6) Purpose,being able to use our gifts in service, and (7) Understanding, compassion and not judgment.
