Central Updates and Announcements

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” ~ Romans 15:13

Red Cross Blood Drive

Central will be hosting a blood drive on Tuesday, April 14th between 10am – 3pm. To sign-up go to https://www.redcrossblood.org/ and type 47374 in the red “find a blood drive” box in the top right.

Food Pantry Re-opening

Prayers have been answered for many as the Community Food Pantry voted to re-open under new guidelines on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1-3.  Our Central representative, Dave Shaw, has been spearheading this effort and is busy preparing for the reopening April 1st.  Please keep him, the volunteers, and those needing food in these hard times in your prayers.  If you feel called to serve in the coming weeks, please email Dave (dshaw21900@aol.com)


Easter Lilies

While we may not be able to meet in person for Easter Sunday, we want to keep with the tradition of celebrating with Easter Lilies but with a twist! All members who would like to order Easter Lilies, are asked to call Jack Daggy Flowers at 765-962-5596. Make sure to let them know you are a member of Central United Methodist Church. You may choose to have the lilies sent to your home or have them sent to friends, family, or anyone that could use a little bit of extra love during this time. All that they ask is that wherever they are sent, is within Richmond city limits.

Jack Daggy Flowers will keep track of all orders and will bill Central after deliveries have been made. To pay for your order, please send a check to Central, or drop it off in the office during our modified office hours of 9am – 1pm. The cost per lily is $13.50.

The deadline to place an order through Jack Daggy Flowers is April 6th. Orders will be delivered April 8th and 9th. If you have any questions, please call the office at 765-962-8543.
