SUNDAYS at CENTRAL, in February – The Apostle Paul, in his beautiful 13th chapter of I Corinthians, ends with these words: “…these three remain – faith, hope, and love…” What does that mean, exactly? And what is the origin of these words, how are they reflected in Jesus’ own words to us? Pastor Rick shares the lessons of these powerful words on Sundays, February 5, 12, & 19 at 10:00am in the Sanctuary and on YouTube.
February 16, 17, 18, 19, 2023 | ROPE
For the mere sake of adventure, danger, and “fun”, two undergraduates murder a fellow, innocent, and harmless, friend. CAMERON & STEPH VALE co-direct this script; inspired by the gruesome true Leopold & Loeb murder, and later played out, onscreen, in an early classic Hitchcock film of the same title.

These three colors are the traditional colors of MARDI GRAS, and The “Doctors of Dixieland” will be on hand to bring some spice to our worship music. Join us at 10:00am in the Sanctuary!

Each Sunday of LENT 2023 (February 26 – March 26) will look at one day during “THE week”: what is called the “week of the passion” – from Palm Sunday to the Resurrection Sunday. What do we know about what happened with Jesus, the disciples, Jerusalem, and Rome during that week? The first Sunday of LENT we will begin with the MONDAY of PASSION WEEK and continue each Sunday with each of the weekdays. Join us on YouTube and “live” at 10:00am in the Sanctuary.
