Central Together: September 26, 2021

Central Family,

Did you know that our church supports missionaries that are all over the world, taking the Gospel to the nations? One of the things I love about this church is our heart to see Jesus proclaimed in places that have never heard His name before. One of the ways we can come alongside these missionaries that we partner with is not just through our financial support of them but also our physical and spiritual support of them. One of the ways we’re doing that starting this weekend is we’re inviting you to partner with us to prepare care packages for our missionaries; our Central Sent missionaries that are all over the world.  We want to gather together supplies for them that we can send in care packages to them that will arrive just in time for the holidays so that we can be a blessing and encouragement to them during that important, but sometimes challenging, season. You know how hard it is when you’re away from family; during the holidays, it can be more difficult. So what a better way for us to be an encouragement to them as they’re on the frontlines with the Gospel than to do something like this. I want to encourage you this Sunday to take advantage of that by making your way out to the lobby to get information about how you can jump in with preparing those Central Sent Care Packages for those missionaries all over the world.
 
In addition to that, we’ve got some great things ahead of us this Sunday. One of the things I’m looking forward to is welcoming back Sam Perry to lead us in worship. If you don’t remember Sam, he was connected to our church in the 90s. He led worship here at times, especially during some of our youth conferences. He also helped to lead Breakaway Worship, and now he is a worship leader up in the Dallas area.  We're excited to have him back with us.
 
Beyond that, I just want you to know as we’re looking ahead that there’s several things that we’re looking forward to as September winds down and as October picks up. One of those is we’re going to be kicking off our search for our next College Minister. This Sunday is when Wes begins his new tenure as pastor at First Baptist Pflugerville, so remember him in your prayers. But in the meantime, what we’re planning to do is open up a full search for this position where we, starting this Sunday, are going to have that job description posted on our website where people can submit résumés (click HERE for job posting). So if you know somebody who might be a fit for that, we want to encourage you over the next couple of weeks to point them in that direction as we seek who God might have for us for this role in the future. 

I’m excited to worship with you this Sunday.

In Christ,
Phillip
