Dear Church family, I am so excited to send this email to you. At Central, we are always looking for ways to draw closer to God and each other. With this new resource, we are taking steps to enhance that process. By now you should have received an email inviting you to RightNow Media. After you have set up your free account you will be able to search through the vast library of resources available. These range from topics such as Bible studies, devotionals, apologetic, marriage, parenting, and many many more. Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity as much as you can. One of the features that I am most excited about is the ability for anyone to find a resource and share it with others. Because of this, we will be adopting this into our congregational wide Sunday school. Below you will find a link to the study we will be using for the next 6...

We are thrilled to partner with RightNow Media (RNM), an online, user-friendly library for individuals in every age and stage of life. This is a program that offers unlimited access to thousands of Christian videos. And the great thing about it is that it's free to members of the Central Church Family! If you received an email invitation to join, please click here....

Warming Hearts Missions Committee Project January and February can be hard months for those in need – the weather is cold, many do not have the basic essentials or they have run out after the rush of Christmas donations. Please help us warm the hearts of those less fortunate in our community.  In February we will join our Community Kitchen in giving out additional food as well as socks, hats, and gloves.  We will be collecting these items during the month of January. If you are not able to drop off the specific items but would like to support this project, you may drop off a monetary donation to the church office (on the memo line please designate it to Warming Hearts). For more information, please see Stephanie Wilson or contact the church office at 704-739-2471. We also have an Amazon Wish list.  ...
