Meeting with Central Medical Professionals
We are seven months into this pandemic. We know so much – and yet, it seems so little. At Central we wanted to have a time of conversation with some of the medical professionals from our congregation. This will be a time to ask questions of and hear from those we know about the current state of our community’s fight against the Coronavirus while also offering encouragement and prayer for our members in the medical professions. Join us Sunday, October 25th at 7:00pm on Zoom

Technology Assistance Tutorials
The pandemic has placed a massive strain on our technology proficiency, understanding, and stamina. We want all of Central to be resourced and trained to the level desired. We will be offering an ongoing space and basic training on whatever question you may have in regards to computers, phones, technology, and all the programs in between. Luke Sheridan is willing to learn alongside you on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays at 3:30 in the Fellowship Hall starting October 28th. Bring your devices, questions, and desire to learn as we tackle whatever is before us together. Feel free to email Luke to better prepare him at lcsheridan1212@gmail.com.
Happy Birthday!

Her family would really appreciate it if as many church members as possible could send her a birthday card.
