Central Together: November 28, 2021

Central family,

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, isn’t it? As the stores become more festive and as the radio stations change their music to Christmas carols, one of the things everybody’s been talking about is the potential for shortages of some of the things we might want to buy to give as gifts. There seems to be this sense of shortage all around us right now during this pandemic season as supply chains break down.

But I’ve got some good news for you. There’s no shortage of opportunities for us to gather over the next few weeks to worship our risen King and Behold the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ who takes away the sins of the world. That’s going to be the focus of our Christmas series this year, Behold the Lamb of God. We’re going to take some time looking through New Testament passages that speak about who Jesus is so that we might see Him more clearly this holiday season.

Beyond just the Sunday morning sermon series, there’s a few other things related to Christmas I want to make sure are on your radar. We’re going to have a focused event for kids and preschoolers coming up on December 3, Popcorn & Pajamas. We’re going to have the Women’s Christmas Craft Night on December 9. The thing I’m most excited about is on December 12, when we have Andrew Peterson and his friends with us for the Behold the Lamb of God concert on Sunday evening. You won’t want to miss it. I’ve seen it several times and it’s just a fantastic way to set your heart on Christ during this season.

Now as we look ahead to the rest of the month, I want to keep in front of you that on Christmas Eve we’ll have one service; it will be at 5:00 pm. We hope you’ll bring your family and friends. We won’t have any sort of childcare as we want all of our Central family gathered in one room together as we enjoy that candlelight experience together.

We look forward to worshiping with you soon. In Christ,Phillip
