March will be a glorious month at Central Assembly! We hope you will join us for all our Easter events. Here’s a brief summary of what’s coming up.
Our annual business meeting is tomorrow night at 6:00 in the sanctuary. The business meeting is a time to reflect on God’s faithfulness to us, as well as to anticipate the things He has in store for us in the year ahead.

Ballots will be provided for those who work in childcare areas. Join us for this important night for the Central Assembly family!
