3 year olds through adults will explore fire in fun (and safe) activities to remind us of Pentecost. Childcare is provided for younger children.
HOLYPALOOZA will be held at Central on September 17. This is a joint worship at 10 am at Central and celebration of the ministries for Central Presbyterian, Centenary United Methodist, and St. Stephen’s Episcopal churches along with United Campus Ministries. The UCM annual fundraiser BBQ will be held the same day.
SERVICEPALOOZA – the four ministries will be working together on various service projects over the next few weeks. Childcare will be available on Saturday morning, Sept. 16 for those participating in projects. Elementary children and youth will have supervised projects during those times.
Central will host a blood drive for the Indiana Blood Center on Tuesday, August 15. This is meeting night, so it will be convenient for many to donate as you will already be here! See Molly Wadsworth to sign up.
Collect items for the food pantries at UCM and 14th and Chestnut Community Center. Central has specific items to bring for the Sundays leading up to Holypalooza. Each church is focusing on 2 or 3 different items each week so that a good mix is received overall. Please follow this schedule:
August 27 – Toilet Paper; Instant Potatoes
Sept. 3 – Tuna; Gravy (can or jar)
Sept. 10 – Ramen noodles; Stuffing mix
Sept. 17 Spaghetti & Sauce
SAWS ramp build – on September 16. Let Josh Powers know by August 21 if you will be helping with this vital ministry to the community. Ramps are built for those who may otherwise be homebound due to not having a way to get out of their house in a wheelchair.
Race for the Cure Survivor brunch – will be hosted at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church. The children of the churches are making cards to be given to the survivors.
Volunteers are needed to help with the UCM BBQ fundraiser. Set-up and cooking is on Saturday.
