Our spirituality and what we think about God is the most important thing about us. Our faith is not just a Sunday activity. The presence of God can and should be a part of wherever we are and whatever we are doing. There is no time in our lives when God is not actively loving us. He longs for our friendship and conversation every minute of every day.
Along with meaningful worship and biblical preaching and teaching, we hope that you will find many opportunities to nurture your relationship with Jesus and realize the beauty of being in the kingdom of God here at Central. We encourage you to take advantage of all the ways you can be moved along in this wonderful journey. Here is the lineup for Fall:
Adult Sunday School Forums:
9:00-10:00am – CrossFit. This class, facilitated by Pastor Terri, meets in the lower auditorium. We will offer a variety of topics and teachers in a discussion oriented format. Join a community of like-minded learners for stimulating discussion, friendship, and supportive relationships.
10:30-11:30am – Philathia. This class focusses on Bible study and group discussion. It is facilitated by Dorie Oase and meets in the Board Room (Room 105). Find friendship and prayer support while learning and studying the Bible together.
Grow. Pray. Serve. (GPS) Groups:
We are entering our third year of GPS small groups at Central. It may be time for YOU to get on board! We continue to receive feedback and make adjustments to our process. Busy schedules are always the challenge, so this year we will be moving to once-a-month meetings, (with in-between meetings encouraged and endorsed:). Our curriculum for the year will be a study of eight Psalms – ancient hymns and prayers that still speak life and truth into our current, everyday living. Groups meet in homes or community spaces, include fellowship, group discussion, time for prayer, and opportunities to serve Central and the community as a way of growing together. Sig- ups begin Sept. 9. If you are able to host or lead a group, please contact Pastor Terri at 651-470-9697, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
