The Annual Moravian Love Feast, our unofficial start of Advent, is planned for this Sunday, November 30th, at 5:30pm. The Love Feast is a tradition at Central. Members will bring sweet breads, soups, and sandwiches to be blessed and shared. Also, Hot Wassail, a warm spiced cider beverage, will be served. We gather as members of the family of God, and together we will seek God’s blessing for our community and our world.

We’re moving to a new webhost and for the next few weeks our updates here will probably stop. But we’ll be returning with a brand new website that’s much better on mobile devices and tablet computers! We can’t wait to show you our progress but you’ll have to wait for now. In the meantime, for updates about the Church follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
Also, The Session has decided to take down our Members Section. We’ll be bringing back our Bulletins and Newsletters, without having to use a password, but the Church’s E-Directory and Session Minutes will no longer be posted. If you’d like a copy of either please contact the church office or stop by the church. The Session Minutes are posted on the Bulletin Board in McElyea Hall.
The Men’s Fellowship will be holding a Spaghetti Fundraiser Luncheon Sunday September 7th at Noon, following the morning worship service. Enjoy a wonder fellowship meal while helping out our Men’s group! They plan on using the funds raised for building repair and upkeep, and also their semi-annual Men’s Retreat. Cost will be $6.00 per person, $10.00 couple, $15.00 for a family of 3 or more. We hope to see everyone there!
Central Presbyterian Church is now on Twitter! This communication platform will primarily be used for small bits of information such as Prayer requests and event notifications. We’ll keep reminders of bigger events and news on our Facebook and Google + pages and longer more detailed information here on our website. I’ll take this opportunity to also plug our Flickr page! It contains lots of photos from our past and our present and we’ll be continuing to upload scans of older photos from the CPC’s history there as well. Links to all of these sites can be found in the right hand column of this website!

God filled the world with a lot of crazy creatures…including you! When kids feel weird, different, or even lost in a crowd—nothing compares to the extraordinary love of Jesus. That why we’re so excited to open registration for our Weird Animals VBS! Children from age 4 to rising 7th graders can register HERE! VBS will be from July 17th and 18th 5:30pm till 9pm and Saturday July 19th 9am till 1:15pm! We have lots of FUN and WeIrD things planned!
In addition to our Weird Animals VBS, Transitional Pastor Rev. David S. King will be holding an Adult VBS about being a Presbyterian. We will have an opportunity to explore our Presbyterian heritage and learn more about how we are like other churches and how we are different. Plan to join us in the Library, while the kids learn about Weird Animals, as we learn more about our unique part of the body of Christ.
We hope to see everyone there!
