Worship Bulletin - September 1, 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.

Dear Church Family at CBC, We have successfully moved and are still unpacking and shifting furniture. We want you all to know how much we have appreciated your fellowship for the past 15 years and the spiritual refreshment we experienced whenever we worship with you. Sorry if we didn’t get a chance to say “goodbye” to all of you. We do think of you often. Although we are about 30 minutes away, we have not come back on Sundays because my Mother has given up her car so we are driving her to her church. She will be moving in with us at the end of September. One of these days we hope to have an open house so everyone can visit! Please remember us in your prayers and we will do likewise. Peace, Bill & Pat B.
