Staff Blog

With back to school nights, sports schedules, activities and interest meetings, not to mention homework, this time of year can be really overwhelming – yet God calls us to our full and productive lives. Last week at the WAVE, Pastor Don invited us to think about how God is with us in the midst of our busy-ness and to ask ourselves to think about those places where we can give our best yes, and where we can say no.

At Central, we are so grateful for all of the ways that our family and community say yes to God and say yes to a life of service and discipleship. At this time of year, it is our hope and our prayer that rather than feeling like another overwhelming demand on your time, that you life of faith provides nourishment and strength, helping you to find your best yes.


Yours in Christ,

Pastor Deborah
