This Sunday is “Labor of Love” Sunday at Central! We’re so excited to have several local leaders in city government, education, and business as our special guests. The day will be a celebration of the grace of living a productive life in every way. The service will feature remarks by special guests, a panel discussion, and more. Join us as we celebrate those who work to impact the Springfield community in positive ways.
On October 2 after the second morning service we’ll host a luncheon with Pastor Jeff and Carla Peterson for intercultural married couples. If you’d like to attend, please contact us. If you are an international student and would like to connect with an American host family, please sign up at the Connect Counter in the foyer. We have a free women’s event coming up September 23! Check it out later in this newsletter.
Join us this Wednesday night as Pastor Mike kicks off a new WNBS series, 7 Letters to the Churches in Revelation. Beginning September 14, Pastor Jeff will teacher the remainder of the series into October. Come early for fellowship with friends over a cup of coffee.
