New Members Class August 7th

As our community returns to school in August, we will be offering a New Members Class on Sunday Mornings in the Memorial Room. Whether this is your first Sunday or if you have been attending Central for years, this is for all called to commit prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness to Jesus here at Central.  Paul tells us, “For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.” Please contact Pastor Joseph if you are interested in attending or would like more information.

This event will take place at the Lindahl’s home, located at 3818 State Road 227 South, Richmond, Indiana on August 7th from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm. If you have any questions, please contact Michael Richmond. We are so excited to start digging into God’s Word and developing lasting relationships!
