Sign up for Small Group Book Study During Sabbatical 2023

What will the church of tomorrow look like?  How can Central maintain its strong past, yet remain a vital messenger of the Good News in an ever-changing world? 

Those are the kinds of questions raised by the book Deep Roots, Wild Branches.  Pastor Michael will be reading this book while away on sabbatical, and one of the ways we can all remain connected is by reading this book together. So you are invited to join one of the Reading Groups described below:

Leader: Gretchen Kirby, Mondays, 6:00 p.m., Kirby home (813 Fairway, Forsyth), (first meeting – June 5) 

Leader: Diana Ritter, Tuesdays, 6:00 p.m., at Central (first meeting – June 6)

Leader: Karen Wade, Wednesdays, 10-11:30 a.m., TBD (6/14, 6/28, 7/12, 7/26)

Leader: Jeannie Backes, Mondays, 10-11:30 a.m., at Central (6/12, 6/26, 7/10, 7/24)

Leader: David York, TBD, ZOOM (link provided each week)
