Here’s the first (Alpha) episode of the new CPC Podcast! It’s our goal to get the sermon up each week in a timely fashion. We’re going to try to get listed in the Apple Podcast app and a few more places. I’ll let everyone know when that happens. Until then enjoy this first episode!

The Pentecost Offering unites us in a churchwide effort to support young people in Christ and inspire them to share their faith, ideas, and unique gifts with the church and the world.
Each year on Pentecost Sunday, we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit and the birthday of the church. The Holy Spirit remains with us still, connecting us with the church of the past, continuing to inspire the church of today, and pointing us to the church of the future.
Studies show that a foundation of faith established during childhood through young adulthood, helps ensure lifelong faith and service. Psalm 71 testifies to this same truth. Verse 17 says “O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds.” The patterns and lessons established during these formative years continue to bear fruit throughout a person’s life.
These lessons might be taught through a congregation’s commitment to Educate a Child, Transform the World in ministries that shape a child’s academic achievement, setting them on a path toward a stable future. They might be taught through one of the youth events sponsored by Ministries with Youth at the national church that brings together young people from all over the country to share their experiences of faith with one another, and learn how their faith can help them address challenges all over the world. Or our young adults may be guided through a year of intentional service where they discern God’s call upon their lives by our Young Adult Volunteer Program.
A New Young Adult Sunday School class will be starting this Sunday! We have Sunday School classes for all ages from a Nursery Class to Adult Classes. Join Us Sunday at 9:30 am and we’ll help find a Sunday School Class for you!
Central Presbyterian Church will be having several Christmas services this weekend to celebrate the season. Tonight is our first ever Blue Christmas service. If you’ve lost someone, or are feeling blue, this service of remembrance and hope is for you. On Christmas Eve we will be having our Christmas Cantata “O Come Let Us Adore Him” at 11am in the sanctuary. That afternoon we’ll be having our traditional candlelight service at 5:30pm. We hope to see everyone this weekend! Merry Christmas!
