Worship Bulletin - July 14, 2013


  Summer has come, and Central Baptist is moving through a season known as “Ordinary Time.” Despite the unassuming name, it’s far from dull.  During this season the Church muses over some of the great themes of faith, and how they can impact the way we live our lives. Come and join us on this journey of discovery.

Call to Worship

God our Father, we call on you like little children because we know that you love us and care for us like a loving parent. Because your Son, Jesus, prayed to you as Father, so we pray this way. You created us to live with you and to ask for your help and guidance. Amen.
