Each year, at CENTRAL, we take 30 days to pray each day for the children of  MADISON COUNTY, INDIANA.  The statistics regarding “children in crisis”: involved in abuse, neglect, homelessness, and the court system (due to the actions of their guardians) is astounding.  MADISON COUNTY has one of the highest numbers of children in the court system, generally not because of their own actions, in the United States.

As BELIEVERS & FOLLOWERS, our responsibility to the children in our immediate and connected circles is of highest priority in the Kingdom.

NATIONAL “CHILDREN’S SABBATH”;  a Sunday, set aside to honor and pray for children, is Sunday October 18, 2020.  Sara Wilkinson, our CHRISTIAN EDUCATION CHAIR, has set up a sign up sheet (see link below) for you to sign up for one of the 30 days before October 18th and pray at least once that day for 1. The children at CENTRAL, 2. the children in Anderson and 3. the children of MADISON COUNTY.

Thank you for caring for the children in within our reach.



(We received this hand-written note from our friends at THE CHRISTIAN CENTER)

We want to take a moment to thank you for your continued support of THE CHRISTIAN CENTER.  During this COVID-19 pandemic the needs have soared and we appreciate your support now more than ever.  It’s because of YOUR giving and compassion that the doors are staying open to feed the hungry in our community.


“The Separation of Church & State” may be a good statement to define how the United States should deal with ensuring “Freedom of Religion” for her citizens, but it doesn’t very effectively define the role of “STATE” for citizens of the KINGDOM OF GOD.

The STATE is emmeshed within the life of every citizen of THE KINGDOM.  Every BELIEVER & FOLLOWER lives a life seeking KINGDOM answers for TEMPORAL life questions?  Jesus dealt with it (“Should we pay taxes to Caesar?”).  PAUL dealt with it.  ISAIAH dealt with it.  We all deal with it.  The CHURCH and the STATE will cross paths continually, until JESUS assumes His throne and “the Kingdom of this world becomes the Kingdom of our Lord, and of His King”  then “HE shall reign forever and ever.”

There are many examples in scripture life of the CHURCH and the STATE colliding.  In this stories we find hope and answers to help us when our lives become the crossroads of CHURCH & STATE.  We will look at some of these places, in preparation for exercising our right as U.S. citizens, and our privilege and freedom as citizens of the Kingdom of God, to vote on the Tuesday following the last lesson of the series.

This series will be presented LIVE on Sunday mornings at Central, and also on the corresponding VIDEO WORSHIP PODCASTS on YOUTUBE each Sunday as well.
