Winter/Spring 2020 EquipCentral
Enjoy a delicious meal each week in Fellowship Hall at a great price...FREE! What a great opportunity to invite friends and neighbors. Dinner begins at 5:30pm. Don't miss this opportunity to participate in the community at Central, meet new friends, and take a mid-week break from cooking.
Nursery, Early Childhood & Elementary
The nursery is available for children 8 weeks up to 2 years old, and is open from 6:30-7:30pm on the first floor of the Early Childhood wing.
Kids 3 years through 1st grade will continue using a great curriculum by Discipleland called Amazing New Testament Heroes. Each lesson comes with fun games, cool crafts, and great Bible teaching. The 3 year-olds through 1st grade will meet on the second floor of the Early Childhood wing - in the Elephant (3 and 4 year olds) and Koala rooms (K-1st grade).
Elementary kids (grades 2-5) will dive into a new series called What is a Christian? Phil Vischer, Founder of Jellyfish Labs and co-creator of the acclaimed VeggieTales, will walk us through the entire book of 1 John to answer the question, "What is a Christian?" It will tie in perfectly the sermon series on 1 John that Clay began in January. What is a Christian? packs tons of good theology into short sessions that include a short video and small group discussion. Learn not only what the Bible says, but also why and what it means for us today. Grades 2-5 meet in the Duplex - the building just south of the parking garage and with the bright red door.
Junior High | Student Center
Junior high students meet in the Student Center from 6:30-7:30pm for games and teaching.
While our High schoolers meet on Sunday nights in the Student Center from 6:30-8:00pm, we hope to see your high schooler on Wednesday nights, too! After dinner and during the last hour, please encourage your high schooler to participate in one of the following:
1. Attend an adult class with Matt Woodson. Matt will meet up with any high schoolers who are interested in attending a class in the hallway outside the Fellowship Hall at 6:25pm.
2. Help with KidCentral programming. If your high school student is interested in serving in the elementary classes, tell him/her to head over to the Duplex building at 6:25pm. Mrs. Brown will meet them there and give instructions. We'd love their help with crafts, games, and small groups. The Duplex is the building just south of the parking garage - with the bright red door.
3. Help clean/straighten the Fellowship Hall and stage. We'd love some workers who are willing to clear tables, return high-chairs to the nursery, and straighten/clean the stage area after dinner. After they've finished, they are welcome to use the Fellowship Hall space for homework.
4. Help with Middle School programming. Head over to the Student Center at 6:25pm if your high schooler is willing to serve our middle schoolers by helping with the games, cleaning up after large group activities, etc.

the New Testament: The story, history, meaning, and mission of jesus (January 15 - March 4)
Pastor Mike Farley | Parlor
Do you enjoy learning "the rest of the story"? This class will provide a tour of the New Testament story, from Galilee to Golgotha, from Jerusalem to Rome. Using the eight-session video series "The New Testament You Never Knew," we will study the story of Jesus and the expansion of the early church in the Roman world. Along the way, we will examine the behind-the-scenes historical setting that makes the New Testament literature come alive with meaning. Come and join us as we delve into the meaning of Jesus' teaching, the significance of his death and the resurrection, the incredible growth of the early church amid many challenges and setbacks, and how we can live out the transforming mission of Jesus in our own lives today.
