CPC e-news for September 19, 2014


 O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name,
    make known his deeds among the peoples.
 Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wonderful works.

Glory in his holy name;
  let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.

 Seek the Lord and his strength;
    seek his presence continually.
 Remember the wonderful works he has done,
    his miracles, and the judgments he has uttered,

HOLYPALOOZA 2014 – It’s here!!!!
Saturday, September 20 will be a day of service in the community.  It is not too late to get involved!!   A light breakfast at 8:30 at Central will begin the day before our volunteers head off to 3 main locations to work until noon.  If possible, please sign up for your choice of activity so that we know how many to expect.  1. The ISU Community Garden needs produce harvested  for donation to a food pantry as well as weeding and winterizing.  2. Deming Center residents will be preparing for the move to their new location.  Friendly faces during Bingo will be needed as well as distributing home care bags for their new apartments.  (Thank you for filling those bags and returning them!).  3. The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is the same morning at Memorial Stadium.  You may choose to be a part of the Holypalooza Team by walking or running the 5K or 1-mile course or just relax by the finish line and cheer for the finishers.  There is a registration fee and you are encouraged to register online.  You may also make a donation to the team without participating.   A 4th option is to assist with set-up and preparation for the United Campus Ministries Barbecue (formerly ‘Pig Roast”).  Volunteers to serve the lunch are needed.  Please sign up in fellowship hall.  Donations of cupcakes, cookies and brownies are needed for the lunch.  They should be delivered to Centenary on the morning of the 21st.
Childcare is provided at Central for infants through 5th graders. 

Sunday, September 21 – Joint worship at 10 am at Central.  A SPECIAL OFFERING OF NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS FOR THE UCM FOOD PANTRY WILL BE RECEIVED.  Please place items in the cart in the narthex as you enter the service.  Come early and join the parade from Centenary to Central beginning at 9:30 am.  There is free parking in the parking garage on Sunday mornings.

Following the service, all are invited to enjoy lunch at the UCM Barbecue.  Serving will be at Centenary United Methodist and St. Stephen’s Episcopal Churches.  A free will offering will be taken for the meal.
