PICTURE DAYS FOR DIRECTORY BOARD

It's time to update your family picture for our directory! New pictures will be taken this Sunday, May 1st. Please make your way down to room next to the library/across from the nursery. You may come BEFORE class (starting at 8:30 a.m.), between class and assembly, or after assembly to take your family photo.

WEEK TWO OF OUR PRAYING AND FASTING TOGETHER

This week please read Psalm 121 and pray through it, asking God to guide us as we learn to pray like the psalmist. Also please dedicate one day this week to fast. During the fast, focus on the following three specific ideas:

1.   Recognize our need for God is greater than the need for anything else (food, cell phones, social media, or whatever else we depend on daily).

2.   Ask God to guide us in our own spiritual growth along with the growth of our family and others.

3.   Pray for the leaders at Central and for the Holy Spirit to guide them in the future direction of the church.
