Our sympathy to Chip and Laura Jones and the family in the passing of Laura’s mother/Rachel McCauley’s and Sarah Parker’s grandmother, Sue Jones, Wednesday, February 3rd. There was a private family graveside Sunday, February 7th.


Dearest Brothers and Sisters,

Thank you so much for your concern for our health during these past few weeks:  the prayers, cards, texts, and calls have been uplifting.  It has been a difficult time for us, but we are improving. This past Sunday was wonderful:  we were able to be with you via internet—the first time in 5 weeks. The singing was a blessing—miss the interaction when we are with you in person but hopefully it will not be long before we can worship with you and talk with you face to face.                                                                                                                                                                      In Christian love,

Tim and Jimi Johnson


Please bring children’s books for the Havilands (new or used).


We follow COVID Protocols – Masks are required.

The 1st and 2nd graders won the friendly competition by brining the most boxes. Thanks to everybody for their help and contributions!






There is only one more spot available – April 23 – for someone to provide a meal for our college ministry’s FNL. If you would like that day, please email pat@centralfamily.org. If you have questions, please contact Carla Campbell – 256-882-6449.


Our congratulations to Richard and Sandra Brown, who will celebrate their 65th anniversary Thursday, February 11th.  Thank you for your example to all of us.


Dear Church Family,

I’m progressing into the digital age. My son and daughter-in-law got me a Facebook portal. I can now have facetime with my daughter in Virginia, my granddaughters in New York and Boston plus my son and daughter-in-law in Kuwait, and my granddaughter in California. Soon this technology will be in watches like Dick Tracy’s was (if it isn’t already available there).

We received our 1st COVID 19 shot and are scheduled for the 2nd later this month. I look forward to seeing everyone very soon.                                            Your Brother in Christ,
