Memorial Services on June 8

On Saturday June 8 there will be 2 memorial services honoring Central members.  At 1:00 p.m. at Graceland-Fairlawn, there will be a service to honor Dorothy Rueff.  Click here for a link to the obituary for Dorothy. Following the service, there will be a memorial walk to the gravesite where Dorothy will have already been laid to rest. 

Then, at 3:00 p.m. there will be a time of food, friends and fellowship to remember Pat Penhallegon.  Pat passed away last fall, and we had a funeral service for him at that time at Central, but not all his family was able to come.  This event, held at the family homestead on Sefton Rd, is a time for family and friends to come together and remember Pat.  If you would like to attend, please click here.

Thank you Central for your generous donations of food items for Northeast Community Fund Food Pantry.  Our May donation was 115 pounds of non-perishable food items. The next food collection for the Northeast Community Fund Food Pantry will be June 2.  Here are some suggestions for the food pantry: peanut butter, canned meats, pasta, tomato products, cereal, canned fruits & vegetables, dried noodles, broth, and soup.   As always, please, be sure to check the expiration date on the items that you donate and make sure your items have not been opened or partially used. The shopping cart is in the Connection Café.  Let's fill the cart.  Thank you for your support.

We want to congratulate all of our children and youth as they complete another school year. We have a gift for you. If you were not in worship last Sunday to receive your gift, we want to make sure that you get one. Look for Pastor Vicky on Sunday mornings or stop by the church office during the week to pick it up.

Educational Opportunity – Overview of the New Testament

main image

For six (6) weeks from the end of May through the end of June, I will offer a class entitled, Overview of the New Testament.  The class will meet on Thursdays from 5:00 – 6:15 p.m. and will run from May 23 through June 27.  All are welcome!  We will look at such things as:


  • The political and economic world in which Jesus’ ministry took place
  • What the religious world was like in which Paul spread his message.
  • How each of the 4 Gospels represents a distinct point of view
  • And so much more!


This will not be a “bible study” class in the traditional sense that we take a  deep-dive into passage after passage.  Rather, we will highlight and read many different scriptures throughout the New Testament as examples of the subject matter we’ll be learning.   This class is designed to help give background and context to the scriptures we cover during worship on Sunday mornings. Sign up at the Welcome Center at the church or by emailing us ( ).
