Chalice Class This Week

Let's Discuss!

Title: Maternity Leave

Focus: In June, Jacinda Ardern, the prime minister of New Zealand, became the first woman in history to take maternity leave while an elected head of state. What is the importance of maternity leave? What are maternity leave policies in the United States? How does our faith call us to support new mothers in the workplace?

Back to the Basics


It’s time for another school year to begin!  As our students take another step on their educational journey, we will be going “Back to School” at Central Christian.  For the next six (6) weeks, we will be offering a sermon series called Back to the Basics with the goal of taking the next step on our spiritual journey.

Week by week we will move our way through the bible, beginning… well… at the beginning (Genesis) and concluding with the end (Revelation).  Each Sunday will be constructed on a major theme evident in scripture and will reveal how God is with us from creation to the culmination of salvation history.  The whole of scripture is the story of a people trying to find their way back home.  And on every step of that journey, God is with us.  Whether you are brand new to church and Christianity, a long-time veteran of sermons and bible studies (or somewhere in-between), we think there will be something that helps all of us grow in faith. 

And be on the lookout for a Six-Week Bible Study, that accompanies this series called “Bible 101,” to begin the week of September 10

Blessings – Michael
