FAMILY VACATION RETREAT

JANUARY 18TH – 21ST, 2019

The campus ministry's annual Family Vacation Retreat is here again. This year's theme is Generations Reunion WeekendThis year is special – it’s our 10th anniversary, and we’re inviting not only current college students to attend, but alumni as well. As last year, those Central teens who are juniors and seniors are also invited to join, and the campus ministry will help sponsor those that want to go. There will be a teen track with breakout classes designed for them. Rodney, our youth minister, will be going to aid in leading the trip. We really hope this will be well attended by our teens, college, and alumni. The cost is $80 per person including a $20 deposit when you sign up. If you have any questions, interested in going, or interested in helping someone to go that is financially unable, please contact D’Mitri Lewis (904-887-4006).

HOLIDAY CLASS SCHEDULE

The following is the schedule for Central’s classes over the upcoming holidays.

Thanksgiving: Sunday classes are planned to run as usual after Thanksgiving. TONIGHT, adult and children’s classes alike will be dismissed to support Central’s annual Thanksgiving devotional in the old auditorium. Christmas: Sunday classes are planned to run as usual both before and after Christmas. On Wednesday, December 26th, the night after Christmas, adult and children’s classes alike will be dismissed to support a devotional in the old auditorium. New Year: All classes are planned to run as usual.

If teachers will be out of town or think their attendance will be small on one of these days, they may feel free to make special arrangements for the class (e.g., have prayer time; combine classes with another group; etc.).

OFFICE CLOSED

The church office will be closed Thursday and Friday, November 22nd and 23rd, for Thanksgiving Holidays. As always, you may reach us on our cell phones.
