On Sunday, September 30, Sanctuary seating will be divided into sections using
Monopoly board themes with various values based on location. Stop downstairs
before the service to purchase your “deed” to a seat in the section you desire. Ushers
will assist you in finding your place. If you find yourself embarrassingly short of
funds, “Free Parking” will be available way down front. More to come…

The Fifth Sunday Lunch will be served on September 30th immediately following the
service. CLCA will provide meatloaf and drinks and the congregation is asked to
bring a side dish – vegetable, salad, or dessert. Join us for a great meal and

World Communion Sunday is October 7th. The Worship Commission would like to have a variety of breads from around the world.

ISU Homecoming Parade – Jim Moles is looking for young friends and young at heart friends to wear Sycamore blue and ride in a wagon pulled by his ” Old Friends little yellow tractor” in the ISU Homecoming Parade on Saturday morning, October 13. Children under the age of 10 need an adult joining them. Adults may ride or walk. Each family needs to provide candy. Please let Jim know if you are joining by signing up on the posted message in fellowship hall. Details for gathering that morning will be given before the event.
IF YOU ARE A U.S. MILITARY VETERAN – please make a note on the pew pad or by telling/emailing Cheryl Moles. The Sunday School children and youth will be honoring our veterans with a breakfast on November 11. Please let Cheryl know of shut-ins or others that may not see this announcement. We would like to give recognition to all

The nursery and preschool rooms are in need of some “new” to us toys and activities. If you are cleaning out toys and games or see some nice things at a sale, please consider what we could use.
We also want to make a sensory board and you may have some of the needed items in your stash of important things – a wall light switch (doesn’t need to work), latches of various types, toilet paper holder, springy door stop, touch light, etc.

CENTENARY STRIDERS Central Presbyterian members are invited to take part in a new walking and running group that will meet weekly in front of Centenary Church. Centenary Striders will meet at 5:30 p.m. Mondays, beginning Sept. 10. We will take various walking and running routes on campus and around town, making use of the city’s trail system, then returning to the church for refreshments. Michel Starkey, Steve Hardin, Mel Camp and Don Dodson will accompany groups of various paces. Michel and Don will work with the running groups, Steve will lead the walking group and Mel will work with runners who would like to build their distances, using a run-walk-run strategy. The first walk will be one-half mile out – and one-half mile back. The route starts at Centenary, goes west onto the ISU Quad in front of Normal Hall, then heads northwest on the diagonal path to the Dede Fountain plaza, then continues north along the east side of Sixth Street through the Reeve Hall complex to the corner of Sixth and Tippecanoe. Water will be available at that point, and the walkers will return the same way they came. The first run will be one mile out and one mile back. It follows the same route as the walkers to Sixth and Tippecanoe, then continues west along the south side of Tippecanoe, shifting to the north side of Tippecanoe at the point where the ISU Fitness Trail begins. The route then follows the fitness trail under the Third Street overpass to the point where the trail meets First Street. Runners will then return to the church the same way they came. Water will be available at the one-half mile and 1-1/2 mile points. In the following weeks, we plan to use routes that will take us to Maple Avenue Park, Centennial Park, Farrington Grove, Collett Park, Fairbanks Park and the ISU Stadium. We will use portions of the National Road Heritage Trail, the South Fourth Street Trail and the North Fifth/Sixth Streets Trail. In case of inclement weather, walkers will make use of the church building. Please share this information with any friends and acquaintances who are interested in maintaining fitness and enjoying the company of old and new friends! This is a good way to shake off the mental fatigue of the day and relish the gifts of nature and neighbors.Feel free to contact Don Dodson – 812-234-0106 or dondodson2604@gmail.com – or any other of the pace leaders if you have questions.
