Pastor's Weekly Update

Be informed – Read the entire bulletin!

Welcome to Central

If you are our guest today, we’re glad you’re here!  Let us know how we can help or answer questions.  We’re here to serve!

Fall Kickoff is September 9 – Who will you invite?  

Our annual “Fall Kickoff” high attendance day is Sunday, September 9. We will have regular Sunday schedule and enjoy a catered meal after the morning worship service.  Let’s continue to pray and invite others to be part of this special day.  Invitation cards are available in the foyer. 

New Connect Group for Single Moms

This group will start on Sunday morning, September 9.  Please be in prayer for this group as we seek to meet this need and be a blessing to single moms in our church and community.  

Church Wide S.N.A.C. September 2

Everyone is invited to join together at 5:30 p.m. for S.N.A.C. (Sunday Nights At Central) on September 2.  Bring a snack food and/or dessert and the church will supply a couple of “giant subs” from Walmart.  

Also, bring a table game that you enjoy if you’re not going to play volleyball or basketball.  We will have time to play, eat, and have a devotional.  We should be finished around 7:00 p.m.  Don’t miss it!  

Last Chance to Sign Up for Live Nativity

We have had a great response and would love to have more to help with our new live, drive through nativity scene here at CBC.  We will need your help to build the manger and perhaps some adjoining structure, hand out refreshments and information about the church, be actors at the scene, costumes, direct traffic, bake cookies, etc.…

If you are interested in helping in any way, please sign up in the foyer today and we will have a meeting soon to begin planning.  

Connect Group Worker Training is Saturday

If you are a teacher, care group leader, or work in connect group ministry in any capacity, plan now to attend our training beginning at 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning, August 25.  We will be out by noon. Outstanding training, fellowship, and refreshments will be provided.  See you here!

Thank You…

  • To Jan Faglie and all who worked in the kitchen for coordinating and preparing the meal and to everyone else who came and helped with our annual lunch for the faculty and staff of Hillsboro Intermediate School.  We had a great time and it is a blessing from God that we can partner with the school through prayer and the great opportunity we have there with Kids Beach Club.  
  • To Pam Fletcher, Joyce Walker, Sandy Ives, Kristi and Emma Hutter, and Pati Ramsey for your help with our table at the “Good to Go from Head to Toe” event last Saturday at Hillsboro Junior High.  We passed out school supplies and information about the church and Kids Beach Club.  It was a great opportunity to connect with our community.

These events are so important as we share the love of Christ beyond the walls of the church.  Please pray that the seeds planted through these events will grow to bear fruit for the Kingdom of God.  Well done!  

"Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.” – John 15:4
