ANOTHER 2021 GRAD FROM CENTRAL!

Congratulations to KEVIN JOHNSEN upon his graduation from THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE ACADEMY this year!  Apologies from Pastor Rick for not realizing “little Kevin” was graduating this year…but we are so proud, and will be honoring him when he is home on leave this summer.

Kevin graduates with a Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force.

OUR CURRENT SERMON SERIES

Pastor Rick takes the congregation to the people and places JESUS visited after His resurrection, and before His ascension back to His true (and our true) home.
Just like anyone of us who would have some people to see and things to say – when we know we won’t see them face-to-face for a long time, JESUS loves, shares, and teaches them (and us) some of the most core and basic TRUTHS about Himself and about us.

THE ALLEY in THE PARK!

This spring, our ALLEY THEATRE introduces it’s FIRST “Alley in the Park” performance at GRAY’S PARK (our former “Summers Park” at 2901 N. Madison Av).  THE ALLEY presents an outdoor performance of  Shakespeare’s “A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM” Friday, Saturday, & Sunday May 14, 15, & 16.  The play begins at 7:30pm on Friday & Saturday, and 3:00pm on Sunday.

Bring your lawn chairs, a picnic (food will be available for purchase also, provided by EARL. B. QUE CATERING) some wine, friends, and enjoy this performance in this beautiful park.

100 Tickets Available for each performance.

PENTECOST – SUNDAY, MAY 23rd

The “BIRTHDAY OF THE CHURCH” is celebrated this year on MAY 23rd.  “Pentecost”, 50-days after Easter, commemorates the Spirit of God descending on, empowering, and “giving breath” to the gathered disciples and the Church-at-large.

Traditionally, at CENTRAL, we not only deck the sanctuary in the color, red (the traditional color of PENTECOST) but we also WEAR red to help celebrate.

In BOTH our in-person and PODCAST worship services we will celebrate the day with our congregation in red – if you wish to participate, please plan accordingly!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHURCH!
