Every Member in Ministry (EMIM) KICKOFF

This Sunday is the beginning of our annual EMIM emphasis (March 3, 10, & 17).  This is a time when we challenge each member to volunteer for one or more ministry opportunities in the life of our church. Considering all the challenges before us in the coming days

(increased attendance, new building, two services, etc.), it is vital

that each person find their place to serve.  Remember, YOU are

gifted to serve! As we look towards Ministry Commitment Sunday on March 17, would you prayerfully consider the question, "Where will you serve?" God is doing great things at Central and He wants YOU to be a part of it!


"Come and See" Week

Next Sunday, March 10, and the following Wednesday, March 13 is "Come and See" Week.  As part of our EMIM emphasis we are asking you to "come and see" some of the different children's and youth ministries to get an up close look at what goes on behind the scenes in these exciting areas of church life.  All we are asking you to do is "shadow" one of our ministry volunteers to observe what happens in these ministries.  Would you be willing to participate? If so, mark Event Response #3 with your name and contact info or click here to contact us and "Come and See" what God is doing!
