September 24th Updates

UMW Fall Pop-Up
Thank you for your support of the United Methodist Women’s Trunk Show Pop-Up. We kept busy, we had fun, we hope you enjoy your purchases. We look forward to gathering again. (The noodle elders may assemble soon, at a safe distance, with PPE.) Do you need pecans? More info later coming soon!
Worship Team
Will you prayerfully consider serving on the Worship Team? We have many dreams to grow our worship services in the coming years so that others will have space to connect to God. This might mean new services, different services, or television services. All of these need more servants in the audio video work to become a reality. Please prayerfully discern whether you have the time and heart to bring worship more fully to someone else. Do not worry about the skills. God equips the called more than God calls the equipped. And I know several people ready and willing to walk every step with you. If you feel this tug on your heart, please send me an email
Step Out Saturday – October 3rd
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus tells us, “Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” So many at Central have done this well in their own mission fields during the distributed time of the coronavirus, On October 3rd, we are hoping to do this well here at Central. There will be outdoor praise and worship, a community luncheon, prayer walks, projects, and service opportunities. More information to come. Please be in prayer that we might glorify our Father and shine our lights well.
Lamplighter Devotionals and Testimonies
We are asking for devotionals and testimonies from the congregation to be shared in a future Lamplighter. If you feel led to share, please submit yours to Christin at
