Worship Bulletin - September 15, 2013


Fall is here, and Central Baptist continues to move 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.
