THANK YOU NOTES



Dear Friends,

On behalf of the many families in need in Madison County, thank you for your recent donation of $1000 to OPERATION LOVE MINISTRIES for the giving period of 4.1.2019 to 6.30.2019.  Your funding is vital to continue serving over a thousand individuals each month through OLM’s food, clothing, and household pantries, emergency and pharmaceutical assistance programs, and referral services.  Your gifts truly show the love of Christ to the hurting and broken.

Your gifts are a blessing and answered prayer to so many families each month.  If you have feedback, prayer reuests, or questions about OPERATION LOVE MINISTRIES’ outreach programs, please contact us at 765.644.2121.

Thank you for sharing your gifts, faith, and prayers, with OLM and our neighbors in need.  We look forward to your continued support.

In Grace,
ANDREA BAKER | Executive Director

(EDITOR’S NOTE: OLM reported that CCC’s donations for Back-To-School families helped over 40 kids this fall!  Thanks!)

As it is now just about a year since I joined you as your pianist/organist, I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to my church family. I came in with some trepidation because of the hole left by Randy’s departure, but my mind was put at ease when several of you told me early on to “do my own thing” and “you just do things your way.” I really appreciated that kind of welcome.

I’ve received several cards and notes over the past year, and I want to tell you that those have meant a lot to me. I didn’t always know for sure who you were, but when the pictorial directory came out, I could start matching more names and faces. So please know that those did not go unnoticed!

It had been a while since I could call a church “home,” and I’m glad that Central has become that to me. As I get to know more of you better, I feel even more integrated into the fabric of the church community, and I really love that. Not to mention having two great friends in Rick and John to work with on a weekly basis. I’m really thankful for these two guys.

So, as we wrap up the first year, I just wanted to say thank you.
