Passing the Peace
Call to Worship, From The Worship Sourcebook
All who thirst, come to the water. Come, all who are weary; come, all who yearn for forgiveness. The Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ has washed over us, and our gracious and holy God beckons and blesses us. Drink deeply of these living waters.
Glory to you, O Lord, glory to you.

Deck the Halls!
Advent is almost here! Come and help us get the Sanctuary ready for this special season following worship on November 25!
Fall Clean Up Day
The leaves are falling, and need to be blown out to the curb! The town will be collecting leaves in our area the week of December 10-14, so we’ll be having our fall/winter clean up day on Saturday, December 8. We’ll start around 8 AM. Help us get the church grounds winter-ready!
Church Business Meeting & Pot-Luck
Central’s annual business meeting will be held on December 2 after worship. As is our custom, we’ll be having a pot-luck lunch prior to the meeting, everyone is encouraged to bring a main dish, side, or dessert. A sign up sheet will be in Memorial Hall.
