How do we proclaim the gospel? Seminary intern Phil Romine will preach on Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians about how “our message of the gospel came…not in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction” (1 Thess. 1:5).

All are invited to join us for Third Sunday Lunch following worship.

Sunday, October 26

You shall love the Lord  your God with all your heart, your strength and mind.”  “And you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”  Jesus puts these two greatest commandments side by side – and they go hand in hand.  To love our neighbor is connected to and related to loving God.  Rev. Colby will preach as we prepare to host Project Home for the month of November.

Project Home at Central!

project home picture mom and childIn November, Central will turn our Dining Room into a temporary overflow homeless shelter for children and their parents.  We are part of a fabric of congregations and synagogues that care enough to do something practical to help.  While families are at Central, they are connected to the support and services of the county for job training and searches, food, clothing, tutoring, and transportation.

Each night of the month we provide two evening and overnight hosts to welcome and assist our guests, read and play with children, help serve small snacks and breakfast, and converse with parents.  No one would choose to sleep in a church dining room (other than teenagers for a lock-in, but that is a different story) but volunteers serving as hosts make the experience more humane and friendly for these families.

Watch our pastor, Dave Colby, help explain what it’s like to volunteer at Project Home!

Each night during the month of November, we need 2 evening hosts (5:30—8:30 pm shift) and 2 overnight hosts (8:00 pm to either 7:30 or 9:30 am, depending on the day.  Sleeping is allowed during the overnight shift — beds are provided.)
