THE ALLEY THEATRE COMPANY

JANUARY
16, 17, 18, 19, 2020

Well-known ALLEY actor,
ANDREW PERSINGER
directs this masterful
script, which centers around
a well-to-do family
during the turn-of-the-
century. It contains
everything that keeps
audiences on the edge
of their seats.

First performed in 1945, in
the Soviet Union, this is
one of JB PRIESTLY’S most
well-known works. It is
both a mystery and a
morality play for our time.

The Birling family, in the
midlands of Britain, learn
that “everything and
everyone is connected”
when visited in the
middle of dinner by the
mysterious Inspector
Goole.








It’s the best of all worlds for Pastor Rick – that’s right, a Sermon Series about God and Food!  Join us for Sundays at Central in January and February as Pastor Rick shares four of his favorite recipes and the spiritual lessons each of them deliver, along with flavor and substance.  Each lesson is designed to remind us all about what we take into ourselves and what it all has to do with the presence and the knowledge of Jesus.

SUNDAYS at CENTRAL | 10am
January 26th
February 2nd
February 9th
& February 16th





It has become a wonderful tradition at Central: “MARDI GRAS SUNDAY!”,
the last Sunday before LENT.  We celebrate with New Orleans Style accompaniment to our worship, and an ALL-CHURCH LUNCH in the Fellowship Hall.

This year JOHN HUNTOON and “THE DOCTORS OF DIXIELAND” take the platform and lead us in a great day of music and celebration.

Invite a friend, come along, and bring some good food to share with all!

“MARDI GRAS SUNDAY”
February 23, 2020 at 10am




ASH WEDNESDAY 2020 is February 26th – and we will have a traditional service of Communion, Candlelight & Ashes that evening at 7:00pm.  Beginning that day and running 40 days through Saturday, April 11th (not counting Sundays) is the Season of  LENT, 2020.  This year we celebrate in a unique way (don’t we always?), but with the always-present charge to know Jesus better.  

This years theme, along that line, celebrates not only Jesus the Rabbi and his “attendance” at the Festivals, but also how each festival and observance shows the Messiah “hiding in plain sight”.

Each Sunday will be a journey into a specific festival, and each Wednesday will see a different Elder from Central give a personal and thoughtful message regarding their journey getting to know Jesus.

Toward the end of this 40-Day Journey, on Thursday April 9th (Maundy Thursday) you are invited to an “immersive” celebration, all-church, meal of  THE PASSOVER: with the music of “INDYKLEZ” (the Indiana Klezmer Band which includes Pastor Rick as their vocalist), some wonderful food, some games, and the traditional Haggadah (script) of the Passover, almost unchanged since the time of Jesus.

Please join us MAUNDY THURSDAY (there will be no TENEBRAE or GOOD FRIDAY evening service this year)
