NEW FIRE ALARM SYSTEM REIMBURSEMENT

During the quarantine, CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH took advantage of the empty church building to do a little up-grading.  We have a new, state-of-the-art FIRE ALARM SYSTEM.  This system protects our very precious “old” building and sends the alarm directly to the Fire Department as well.

Thankfully, there was cash enough in our checking account to cover the more-than-reasonable invoice, but we would like to reimburse our account and get us back on track with our budget.

Please, if you can, give directly to the FIRE ALARM SYSTEM when you pay online OR write your checks to CENTRAL and give on Sunday Mornings – or mail it in.

When you give online, you may use the LINK below, on the “FUND” line you can scroll down to “FIRE ALARM REPLACEMENT” – your gift will go directly to reimbursing our checking account.  Thank you so much for your help.

CHRISTMAS CARDS!

Each Christmas Season we offer you the chance to get Christmas Cards to your friends at Central by delivering them to the Church.  They will be distributed and alphabetized and ready for pick up in the “back hall” (behind the Sanctuary) through the month of December (till Christmas Day).  You can make a monetary donation for this service, which will go directly to our JUBILEE CHRISTMAS Ministry.

Bring your cards/Pick up your cards on these days:
– Saturday, December 5th from 6:0opm-8:00pm, at our CAROLING FOOD DRIVE (10th Street Chapel Entrance)
– Tuesdays (December 8th & 15th) from Noon to 1:00pm (10th Street Chapel Entrance)
– Fridays (December 11th & 18th) from Noon to 1:00pm 
(10th Street Chapel Entrance)

SUNDAYS

At all times, and especially at CHRISTMAS, we should be reminded that JESUS was GIVEN TO US as a gift from our FATHER and HIS FATHER – for very specific reasons.

ISAIAH the Prophet foretold the promise of this gift, and why it is important to our everyday lives.  Who we are, as Children of God and Citizens of the Kingdom is wrapped up in the “Names” and “Titles” of JESUS our King.

How does “WHO HE IS” affect “WHO WE ARE”?

Join us at CENTRAL CHRISTIAN in December for the series: A SON IS GIVEN.
