Easter Egg Hunt | March 28 | 10:00a | Fusion Center

It’s almost time to hop on over for our annual Easter Egg Hunt. The big event, open to our community, will be next Saturday, March 28 from 10am to 12pm at the Fusion Center. Bring your kids, your friends, and your neighbors. Come ready for a fun time filled with games, snacks, crafts, face-painting, inflatables, and egg hunting, of course! This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection with our kids and community. We need lots of volunteers for a variety of activities. Run a carnival game, assist with a cute kids’ craft, make that perfect snow cone—there’s a place for you! If you’re interested, please contact us.

We also need LOTS of individually-wrapped candy to fill eggs. Baskets for donations are located at each end of the foyer. Without your help with candy and activities, this event would not be possible. Thank you!


Annual Business Meeting | March 22 | 6:00p | Sanctuary

Our annual business meeting will be tomorrow night at 6:00. Pastor Jeff shared, “If you are a member of Central, please make the meeting a priority. We have much to celebrate from 2014. I look forward to sharing a few things from my heart as the meeting begins.” We will have the opportunity to review God’s faithfulness in 2014, elect two deacons, and look ahead to another great year of continued ministry in 2015. It’s exciting to see what God is doing and anticipate what He is going to do!

New Wednesday Night Series | April 8 | 6:30p | Multipurpose Hall

Wednesday Night Bible Study will begin a new series on April 8. The purpose of this series of studies is to respond to current events, especially those surrounding ISIS, Boko Haram, etc., and the impact all of this has on many people relative to Islam. Extremism seems to rule the airwaves on the part of all sides, factions, and points of view. We are looking for a biblical approach and a practical understanding of both Islam and current issues which will help us arrive at a good worldview about it all.
