TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

Central’s ALLEY THEATRE COMPANY presents its final production of the 2018-2019 season, “THE TAMING OF THE SHREW” by William Shakespeare.  Kay Winter, local actress, director and educator, finishes off what has been a wonderful seaon of “WORKS OF ART FOR THE THEATRE, DIRECTED BY WOMEN”

Some may argue this script is out-of-touch with events of today, especially this “year of the woman”, but the brilliance of the writer shines through this script (especially with the unique and masterful direction of Kay Winter, and a remarkable cast) to show us that Shakespeare was more provocative and wise on this subject than perhaps we realize at first.

The original words, set in a new frame for this production, will be heard and acted out at The Anderson Museum of Art across the street from Central (instead of the usual performance space in HOOVER STUDIO THEATRE).

As always, tickets are available for $10.  High School and College students may attend the THURSDAY NIGHT performance (by showing their Student I.D.)  for $5.  Call 765.643.0701 for tickets, or come to the Central Christian Church Office any time during the day, Tuesday-Friday, 9:00a-5:00p.

NEWS

FROM CENTRAL


SUNDAYS




Sundays, January 27th – February 24th Pastor Rick will tell the story of how we came to worship the way we do at Central.  From the worship beginnings of the Tabernacle in the desert to the Temple in Jerusalem, the building of Synagogues and then “home” churches…to today.

Some of the very traditions we hold to at Central were started over 7000 years ago…and we may not even know it.  Why we pray, sing, and teach the way we do…why our Church building is designed the way it is…all these things and more are answered in this Sunday morning worship session.

This is a story of God and His people adapting to the ever-changing envirnonments and societies through time…an unchanging God with each changing generation.

 


PBS: THE PASTOR'S BIBLE STUDY

PBS (THE PASTOR’S BIBLE STUDY) WEDNESDAYS in FEBRUARY at 6:00pm with a study of the LETTERS OF JOHN (I, II, & III JOHN) and JUDE.

These small books carry a lot of “weight” in their message to the people of God today…interesting, pointed, and unique.

All are welcome!



 

CENTRAL’S LENTEN THEME for 2019 is “G40: the gospels in forty days”

We will, as a congregation, read through all of the Gospels in a 40-Day reading plan (each day except Sundays), beginning ASH WEDNESDAY, March 6th, and ending April 20th.  During LENT, on Sundays, Pastor Rick will teach on the Four GOSPELS, their writers, and the book of ACTS (considered to be the second half of LUKE).  Each Wednesday at 6:00pm, in SCHUSTER CHAPEL, members of our ELDER TEAM will share a bit about their life stories and their thoughts on the readings of that day.

LENTEN BOOKS, which will include the daily reading plan, will be available to congregation members Sunday, March 3rd (MARDI GRAS SUNDAY).


FAIR WARNING – Saturday night, March 9th, set your clocks AHEAD ONE HOUR!
