October 22 – The Exodus series continues.  The people continue on their journey toward the Promised Land, but in frustration and in a lapse of faith they turn away from the God who has been leading them  (Ex. 32).

deVon head shotWe welcome special guest musician to worship deVon R. Gray (“dVRG”).  dVRG may be the world’s last cultural enigma. The multi-instrumentalist, classically-trained composer is as comfortable writing orchestral and operatic works as he is churning out jazz riffs and hip-hop bravado. His breadth of knowledge saturates various instruments, multiple genres, and limitless styles. And he does it all so effortlessly even he is unaware that he’s working. While many creators spend hours perfecting their craft & skills as he is known, envisions the pen and watches the music write itself.

A recipient of a 2017 McKnight Fellowship in composition, dVRG has already taken advantage of this support having traveled Europe for six weeks of community building and cultural edification.

October 29—There is a wonderful story as the Exodus journey moves toward the Promised Land.  Moses, who had a close relationship with God, asks to see God’s very face.  That does not exactly happen, though God offers reassurance that helps fuel Moses’ determination (Ex. 33:12-23).

Fall Family Retreat

What: Central’s fall retreat for families with children provides space for making deeper connections: with each other, with the surrounding landscape, with God. It is a time to relax and a time to play. Central staff will join families to help create a memorable weekend of pumpkin-carving, s’more-making, games, hikes, and quiet puzzles by the window.

When: October 27-29, 2017

Where: Koinonia Retreat Center near Annandale, MN

Why: This is an opportunity to connect with other families in Central’s community. Children have built lasting friendships. Families reconnect within themselves and bond with families outside their own.

Nuts and Bolts: Housing for two nights, three meals on Saturday and two meals on Sunday is $115 per adult and $60 per child age 5-16. Children under five are free. Scholarships are available for families who need financial help to be able to attend. As a wonderful bonus, Barb Westman will be hosting dinner on Friday at 6:30 pm at her home—just down the shoreline from Koinonia. The cost for Friday’s dinner will be $10 per adult; kids are free.
