Calling all chili chefs! It’s almost time for our 2nd Annual Chili Bowl! This all-church event will be Wednesday, October 29 in the Multipurpose Hall. The evening will be filled with delicious chili sampling, games for the kids, and a throwdown for the best chili at Central Assembly. This is a perfect event to enter as a small group or Sunday School class. Or you can enter on your own or with a group of friends. The friendly rivalry will be bowls of fun and a night of incredible community. So roll up your sleeves, fire up that slow cooker, and get your recipe ready to claim the honor of Central Assembly top chili! If you would like to compete in the chili cook-off, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 866-5013 for a registration form and copy of the competition rules. The deadline for entries is Sunday, October 19.
We kicked off a new small group Bible study last Wednesday, September 11. The focus is exploration of life-giving relationships and unique groups found in the Bible. It’s not too late to start your own group! This coming Wednesday night invite a few friends, grab a table, and start a small group. It’s all about relationships based on the Bible and prayer.
Response was so outstanding for our new 10-week Wednesday night study, “Stepping Up: A Call to Manhood,” that we are offering the same study on Sunday nights at 6:00 in Room 202. Join us and come away with an action plan that fits the man God made you to be!
