This Sunday is our annual Unity Service at Central. With over 15 years of history, this service is one of the highlights of our church calendar. Central Church is honored to host congregants from Fountain Baptist and Wallace Chapel- two historically black churches. Together we worship and sing and enjoy each other’s traditions as we are all challenged to imagine the world that Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. imagined for us all. This year we will have family worship for children, with activities based on Dr. King’s life.
On Monday, we join with Summit in helping the celebration, the dreaming and the work continue by hosting volunteers for our Annual MLK day of service. We hope that everyone will make it a day on, not a day off, and that you will consider joining with us from 10-12 as we prepare lunches, hygiene kits, books and blankets for Bridges. We are collecting gently used books to wrap and distribute.
Children in 4th grade and up are invited to volunteer. If you or your children are available from 9-10 to help with set-up, or from 12-12:30 for clean up we would appreciate your signing up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c044ba8a929a5ff2-summer1
Coming back from Houston this week, I also wanted to put out a save the date for all of our High school families- Our High School Mission Trip for this Year will be to Risingville, NY- we will be working on home repair and re-building from June 23-30th. We will have more information soon, please sign up here for more information: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e4faaaf29a4fc1-cpchigh
