I want to put in front of you 3 additional opportunities to GO DEEPER in your faith, friendships, family and freedom this fall.
1. FAITH LESSONS started back up last Wednesday. Faith Lessons meets on Wednesdays at 11:00AM followed by lunch in the Family Life Center. This fall's theme is IN THE DUST OF THE RABBI. Do you ever feel like you are a follower of Jesus, but from a distance? In Jesus' day, disciples followed their Rabbi so closely that they would be covered with the dust kicked up by the Rabbi's feet. Come each Wednesday at 11:00AM and discover how you can get dusty and be closer to Jesus. Ray Vander Laan is the teacher and Pastor Ron Boettner is hosting each Wednesday.
2. Central's FALL FESTIVAL is Sunday, September 21 from 9:30am to 1:00pm. BARBARY COAST will be leading worship at 8:15 & 9:30AM. There will be games for people of all ages, dunk tank, and great food. All activitities will be in the south parking lot. Cost for food is $3.00. Bring your family, invite a friend and have an awesome time at the Fall Festival.
3. Have you signed up for one of the SUNDAY EVENING COURSES? We begin this Sunday, September 21 with seven opportunities to grow together! A family dinner will be served from 5:15 - 5:45PM followed by a Get Connected Worship from 5:45 - 6:00PM in the Sanctuary. At 6:00 you have the opportunity to participate in seven different courses;
CLEANSING STREAM helps you find healing and deliverance from past struggles. God intends for you to know his presence, strength and guidance in life. Pastor Ron and Karlene will lead.
