Rev. Kevin Buchanan is in the office! WELCOME! You can reach him at kevin@thcpc.org.

CL-CA Commission will sponsor an expanded coffee/fellowship hour Sunday Sept. 18th, to help the congregation meet and welcome Kevin and Astrid Buchanan on their first Sunday with us.  Small sandwiches, fruit,veggies/dip, and cookies will be served with our beverages.  Tables for small groups and some clusters of chairs will be available as seating for those who wish. Stick on name tags will be worn to help the Buchanans know with whom they are conversing,  We won’t expect 100% instant recall the next week!

Our Kids Hope ministry is in need of mentors, substitute mentors and prayer partners for the new school year. If you would like to make a difference in the life of a child at Deming Elementary School, please contact Suzanne Downs at suzanne@thcpc.org for more information.  In addition, volunteers are needed to help with the Backpack Program that provides food for children in their school over the weekend and during holidays. Deming Elementary services the most children in the district in this program with 170 children getting food weekly.  We need volunteers on Wednesday or Thursday that would be willing to come stuff backpacks for about an hour. The time will be determined by the group of volunteers.  PLEASE SAVE PLASTIC GROCERY BAGS TO BE USED TO PACK THE FOOD EACH WEEK. A BIN IS IN FELLOWSHIP HALL TO COLLECT THEM. THANKS!
CL-CA Commission is having a Ladies’ Brunch on September 24th at 9:30 AM at the church.  This will be a pitch-in, which means we all enjoy each other’s favorite recipe, or get to try a new one that we’ve been looking for an excuse to try!  We will be talking about our plans for our 2016 Books, Bakery, and Bargains Bazaar, and hearing about a new mission opportunity with the reThink style show in October. We encourage ladies’ of all ages who wish to join us.
Sharing Garden – Any surplus of herbs or vegetables are welcome to share with church friends on Sunday mornings!
A NEW MEMBER LUNCH will be served by the Deacons on Sunday, September 25 at noon at the church. This is for all members that joined the Central family in the past year (fall 2015 through Sept. 2016). If you are one of our newer members, please plan to join the celebration and watch for more details in your inbox.
A FALL DINNER AND BAZAAR is scheduled for November 4th and 5th. Watch for more information!
