  Deborah Brown: “I am having surgery on April 22nd to remove blood clots and a cervical rib. I will be in the hospital for 5-7 days following. I would appreciate prayers that the surgery goes well and that the use of my right arm is restored. I am looking forward to getting this taken care of and being back with the body at Central. Thank you.”

  David Nance: “Prayer request from Kishore Etwaroo:

He said Cheryl had a problem with her shoulder on Sunday and couldn't sleep Monday or Tuesday nights. The doctor said it was dislocated and repositioned it for her, then sent her to Georgetown. There she is doing some physical therapy and hopefully everything should be good in a couple of weeks. She has had an ongoing problem with a spot on her back that appears to be slowly improving. Kishore asked for our prayers for her recovery."

Central Family,

Thank you so much for all your love, the upcoming meals, and the huge fruit/snack basket to help us as we get settled with baby Vivian. We appreciate all your support and the “big” kids have really enjoyed all the fruit and yummy snacks. We love you all!         God Bless,

The Sherrill Family

Dear Central Church Family,

On behalf of my mom and our whole family, thank you so much for all the support you have given us in the loss of my dad. I know many things happen “behind the scenes” that I may not know about but am thankful for it all.                                         Love,

Kay Carter


The Timberland Trace LIFE Talk has celebrated Easter together for many years. This year we are celebrating here at the building and would like to invite anyone who would like to join us for an Easter Potluck. Please bring a dish to share and filled eggs if you would like for your kids to join in on an egg hunt. Our kids who are "too old" for the egg hunt usually play board games so if that is more your speed come join them. This has become a favorite annual event for us, and we would like to share it with the rest of our family.

The following announcement was made by David Nance on behalf of the elders during our April 10 assembly. The elders encourage you to reflect on this and prepare your heart and schedule to support this special time together.

- Jamie on behalf of the elders

Seven Weeks Training in Prayer and Fasting 

The elders are calling the whole church to a time of prayer and fasting based in Scripture. We believe doing this together would be more likely to increase our growth and maturity than attempting it alone. Examples in the book of Acts mention the disciples praying and fasting together so we want to encourage these practices today.

We had a series on spiritual disciplines recently and we want to move from teaching to practice. Also, after two years of COVID-19, we believe that a common activity focused on the basics would strengthen the church. Our goal is that this time will be used to help young Christians establish these disciplines in their lives and older Christians to grow in them. All of us have room to grow to be more like our Savior, so this is our desire.

Each week we will share a Psalm for you to read and guide you as you pray. We’re asking the entire congregation to read the Psalm for that week and pray through it, asking God to guide us as we learn to pray like the psalmist. We are also asking you to dedicate one day each week to fasting. During the fast we are asking people to focus on 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.   Praying for the leaders at Central and for the Holy Spirit to guide us in the future direction of the church.

For those who already practice these, please encourage those who haven’t. For others who may never have tried these before, or don’t do this regularly, this is great time to begin, and general guidance will be provided.

We want to begin on April 17 and continue to June 5 (Easter to Pentecost).

We will have a meal together for the whole church on June 5 to celebrate this time we spend together and to look forward to seeing what God has in store for us.


As you may notice we have new countertops, sinks, and facets in our kitchen. In order to keep them nice, please use the guidelines below:

1)   To clean the new countertops, please use ONLY soap and warm water. DO NOT USE any abrasives. No Clorox.

2)   Use a hot pad or towel under all hot items.

3)   Use cutting boards.
