On Communion Sunday, members are asked to make a voluntary contribution to the Deacon’s Fund. This is the only income that the Deacons receive to use to provide aid to the community and congregation.  Special envelopes are available to designate this giving.

Attention High School seniors and college students
Applications for the 2018/19 Nancy and Dale McKee Family Scholarship for the benefit of a
member of the Central Presbyterian Church will be available at https://wvcfscholarships.communityforce.com/Login.aspx from July 12, 2017 – August 23, 2017 at 2 PM.
This scholarship requires that you are a member (or regular attendee) of Central PresbyterianChurch.

Have you seen the sanctuary? You are welcome to take a look at the new paint and the other work. If you notice a spot that needs touched up, please mark it with blue tape. The other areas in the building that have been repaired will be painted next week. The carpet and floor covering will be installed week after next followed by the pews. We will be back in the sanctuary in a few weeks!

Celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit that is with us every day. An Intergenerational Sunday School class will be held on August 20 at 9:30 am.
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. Watch for Servicepalooza information as the ministries do mission together in the community. This will include a blood drive at Central on August 15. Watch for details.

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.

CLCA is sponsoring a Saleapalooza “Books, Bakery, and Bargains” sale on September 30. This is a part of the Holypalooza 7th Street Church Row sales at all ministry sites. Start saving your books and “stuff” today. Things may be brought to the church for storage until the sale.
PARENTS NIGHT OUT is Friday, August 11. Free childcare is provided from 5:30 – 9:00pm at the church for all ages of children. Supper is provided. Donations are accepted to cover the cost of the food. Please call the church office to make a reservation for your child(ren).
NEEDED: A wagon to carry young children (preferably the light weight plastic kind with higher sides) on our Parents’ Night Out walks. If you have one you no longer need or find one at a sale, please donate it (or buy it for reimbursement). Thanks so much. The adults and children will appreciate having it.
