Passing the Peace
Call to Worship, From The Worship Sourcebook
The eternal Father,
who loved us and set us free from our sins,
who loves us still with that love that will not let us go,
and who will love us forever,
calls us to worship him today as the only true lover of our souls.
The Lord stoops to receive the love of our poor hearts.
He calls us to remember the depth of his love for us in Christ.
God seeks our love!

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.
