DISCIPLES WOMEN

Disciples Women will meet Monday, November 8, at 11:30 a.m.
Bring your own lunch. Dessert and beverage will be provided. Each member is asked to bring coffee for donation to the Christian Center. December’s meeting will be held December 13 at the same time and place for our Christmas Celebration. Each member will bring an appetizer to share with the group. Members are asked to bring paper products to be donated to the Jubilee Christmas. Both meetings will meet to eat in the Fellowship Hall and move to the Alley Theatre Lounge (so we can hear better) for the meeting and lesson. All women of the church are invited to attend.

QUESTIONS?  Please see Sandy Leslie, Sarah Sheler or Christie Huff.

THANK YOU

To our Central Christian Church Family,
Jerry and I send a heartfelt thanks for your generosity once again for our Village in Haiti, Petit Trou-de-Nippes as you all know was hit hard by the recent Earthquake. $1285.00 was sent from our church along with some donations from our Haiti team to the Visitation Hospital Foundation for the purchase of medications.
I had a long conversation with their Leader Teresa Patterson and discussed how best the money could be used and this was her recommendation. The Foundation will make sure the money goes directly to the people for Health Care. We also appreciate your prayers and support.
Faithfully
Jerry and Nancy Pitcock

CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations to PAUL CUNNINGHAM and JIM NEWCOMER, on being named “Elders Emeriti” by the Elder Board, Staff, and Congregation at CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH.  They each received their certificates and pins during worship, September 19th at Central. Thanks to the both of them for all their years of service to all of us.

We are back!

CENTRAL’S “LUNCH BUNCH” will be meeting on Thursday, October 28th at noon, in The Fellowship Fall.  $6.00 for lunch and conversation and stories by Stephen Jackson, from the Madison County Historical Society.  See Lynn or Charlie High to make your reservations.

FLU SHOTS for our
Central Christian Church Family

The official Flu Season begins on October 1, 2021 and ends April 1, 2022. Many of you will need a Booster Covid-19 injection in late October/November and beyond depending on when you received the first set of either Moderna or Pfizer (booster injections will be given 8 months after you received your second injection of either Moderna/Pfizer).

I have consulted with our health officials and will provide for Central Christian folks a flu clinic at the church in the Fellowship Hall on OCTOBER 5, 2021 – from NOON till 2:00pm.  I will have a second date before church on October 17, 2021 as I have done in the past.

Please bring a copy of your Medicare card front and back, Cammie will be at the church and will copy if you do not have a printer.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU WAIT TWO (2) WEEKS AFTER THE FLU VACCINE BEFORE YOU GET THE COVID BOOSTER SHOT.
The vaccines will fight each other in your body instead of helping your body build immunity to both the flu and Covid-19 if you get them too close together.

This time frame should work well, if you have any conflicts, please let me know. I am happy to make home visits for those that can not get out, just call me, also if you work and need a later time just let me know as well.

Faithfully, Nancy Pitcock
765 617-9549

The ALLEY is proud to present this classic and Pulitzer Prize Winning script by Thornton Wilder. Set on an almost bare stage, with the “Stage Manager” as storyteller, the everyday lives of the people in Grover’s Corners are brought to the audience with warmth, humor, and passion. Premiered in 1938, this script is now a “staple” of the theatre world. KEVIN WESTON, THE ALLEY’s Co-Director, makes his directing debut in this, our opening production.
