Central family,

This is one of those times when saying THANK YOU doesn’t seem like enough. Thanks for everything – food, prayers, calls. The Teague family






















Dear Central Family,

Juanita stopped by Monday afternoon, June 1st, with a great gift of fruit, candy, etc. and especially lots of peanut butter, which I sure enjoy. Want to thank all the body for this and the “love” I know is a part of it.

In the love of Christ,

Clyde Jones

P.S. Look forward to seeing everyone in the near future.

There will be a time to honor two of our elders, who will be stepping down, and their families.

The following are the plans for that day:

1)     We will have a walk thru the FLC (gym) beginning at 5:00 with those who are at risk people and those older than 60. Then we will schedule people to go. Those with last names A – D go from 5:30 – 5:50; E – K attend 6:00 – 6:20; L – P coming from 6:30 – 6:50; and Q – Z may go from 7:00 – 7:20.

2)     If you are unable to attend, you may record a message to them.

3)     Instructions for the walk-thru: You will enter through the FLC (gym) glass doors. The Browns and Smiths will be on the stage area. (Feel free to bring cards/notes and there will be baskets for you to place them in.) There will be a place when you are exiting to record a personal note. All exiting will be through the kitchen/fellowship hall doors.

4)     Please note that we are requesting that you wear a mask. If you do not have one, we will have some at the entrance.
