CPC enews for February 26, 2016
Lenten Devotionals from Presbyterians Today are available in fellowship hall and the sanctuary.
The Lenten Educational Series continues each Sunday evening through March 20 from 5:15 to 7:15 pm. Supper will be served until 6:00 followed by worship and classes. All ages will be using John: The Gospel of Light and Life by Adam Hamilton in age appropriate studies. Over the six weeks, you will read the entire text of the Gospel of John to experience a season of spiritual growth and life-changing renewal. John 6-12 will be discussed this week.
Worship Commission will serve their famous baked potato bar.
A special meeting of the congregation is called for Sunday, February 28, 2016 at the close of worship for the purpose of acting upon the pastor’s request that the Presbytery of Ohio Valley dissolve the pastoral relationship between him and Central Presbyterian Church effective at the close of ministry on Sunday, April 3, 2016.
The birth of Amzi Catena Davis will be celebrated with a baby shower on March 6. A table in fellowship hall will be available for gifts and cards to welcome her. Amzi won’t be able to join us, but her grandparents, Lant and Amanda Davis, will proudly show pictures and accept our congratulations.
The mission committee will collect food for the United Campus food pantry on the first Sunday of each month.

Audio recordings of sermons now available:
Did you miss a sermon? Oh no! But fret not, all is not lost; audio recordings of Lant’s and Scott’s sermons are now available on the church website, www.thcpc.org. All of the August sermons have been successfully added. There are also some (but not all) of the sermons from earlier in 2014 and 2015. To find them, either go to this link: https://www.thcpc.org/sermons/ or, from the church homepage, select “About Us” and then “Sermons” to see the list. (Sometimes you may need to click on “Browse Series” once you are on the “Sermons” page to see the most recent addition.) Sermon recordings should normally appear on the website the same afternoon they have been delivered.
