On Christmas Eve, we sang “O Holy Night” and in verse 3 proclaimed:
“Truly He taught us to love one another; His law is love and His gospel is peace. Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother, And in His name all oppression shall cease.”
We will now begin a yearlong (until Advent 2022 starts) exploration of and journey through the gospel according to Luke, in which Jesus quotes the prophet Isaiah and says: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor” (Luke 4:18).In 2022, let Jesus bring good news to you.
Worship is at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday (weather and Covid permitting).
As part of our “Honoring Our Ancestors” series, you are invited to give thanks for what Central Christian Church has meant to you over the years. You can fill out this form about what Central has meant to you.
In this series, (October 3-November 21, 2021) we’ll be honoring our ancestors: our origins as a congregation, the land, the ministers we’ve produced, our music ancestry, and saints of our congregation. We’ll end the series giving thanks for the people and the organization of Central Christian Church. Our Regional Minister, Teresa Dulyea-Parker, will join us on November 21.
In this series, we’ll explore what it means to be a Disciple and a member of a church. We’ll explore God’s covenant of love, being a movement for wholeness, the bonds of Christian faith, the light of scripture, and God’s limitless love.
In “Journey to New Life,” beginning April 11, 2021, we will explore the life cycles of our bodies, spirituality, beliefs, customs and traditions, relationships, communities and even organizations like churches.
On March 7 we will begin a new series called “The Walk: Five Essential Practices of the Christian Life,” based on the book by Adam Hamilton. There will be a virtual study of the book to go along with the worship series. Copies are $15 each (we do have 2 large print available) and you can reserve your copy by calling the church office or ordering online. You can then pick up your copy during office hours.
For our upcoming series “The Walk,” we want to hear about your faith journey. Please let us know as little or as much about your faith journey as you’d like. We’ll compile the stories into videos to share in worship.
