Worship Bulletin - September 8, 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

Clap your hands, all you peoples; shout to God with loud songs of joy. For the LORD, the Most High, is awesome, a great king over all the earth. God has gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. We have gathered to praise our gracious God. Praise God, from whom all blessings flow!
