HOLIDAY CLASS SCHEDULE

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

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 not meet in order 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 class attendance will be small on one of these days, they may make special arrangements for their class (e.g., have prayer time; combine classes with another group; etc.).

CHURCH OFFICE

The church office is closed for the holidays until Wednesday, January 2nd. As always, you may reach us on our cell phones.

FAMILY VACATION RETREAT

JANUARY 18 – 21, 2019

The campus ministry's annual Family Vacation Retreat is here again. However, due to the damage caused by Hurricane Michael, the normal venue in Panama City Beach is unavailable this year. Instead, the event will be at the Camden on the Lake Resort in Lake Ozark, MO. This year's theme is Generations Reunion Weekend. This 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. Note that cash will also need to be taken to cover meals. 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).
