Small Group – Knit One, Crochet Too
All who enjoy knitting, crocheting, quilting, and fellowship are welcomed. This group has a number of ongoing service projects, including prayer shawls, as well as special and individual projects. Experienced, as well as inexperienced, “stitchers” are welcome. For more information contact Linda Wolgast at: email@example.com
All women are welcome to join this fellowship group for a short time of devotion and great conversation over a simple salad and bread meal in the Church Lounge.
Bring your favorite salad topping to share and we’ll provide the salad greens, dressings and breads. All are welcome, no registration necessary!
Join us this Advent on Wednesday evenings, November 29, December 6 and 13, as we go through the book Prophetic Imagination by Walter Brueggemann.
“The Prophetic Imagination is a survey of the deeper role of the prophetic voice found in the leadership, action, and teaching of the key protagonists in the biblical stories of Moses, Jeremiah, and Jesus. As Brueggemann describes in his original preface, this small book is “an attempt to understand what the prophets were up to if we can be freed from our usual stereotypes of foretellers or social protestors” (page xxiii). Brueggemann thus dismisses the two most common approaches to the prophetic voice among Bible readers, instead seeking a deeper reading than that often adopted in conversations about biblical justice. But this is not to ignore the practical implications of the message of the Bible’s prophets; rather, it prompts a more profound response—and in that sense, a more practical response—to the powers that perpetuate injustice and destroy imagination.” Nathan Brown
Please join Walter Brueggemann and Stephen Roobol-Triggs as they guide us through the book with interactive discussions, engaging lectures, and an in-depth study of pivotal prophets that emulated divine imagination.
Participants are encouraged to bring a bible and be ready to take notes. Session 3 on December 13 will include a time for Q & A.
This is a night for all Parents! Bring the kids from 6months-6th grade to our fun-filled event!
Youth older than 6th grade are always able to volunteer as helpers for the event!
We will feed them dinner, explore, wonder, craft, learn about new things, and more…while you enjoy some time!
A quiet and contemplative worship service that names and holds space for the sadness that can sometimes accompany the holidays. For those experiencing grief and struggling with loss, and for anyone who wants to come and set their burden down – we will come together as a community to sing and pray and hold the pain of the season collectively.
The Advance Care planning class will be led by Nurse Ethicist Stephanie VanSlyke from Munson, who will walk the group through all of the paperwork needed to legally put in place our last wishes and preferences, should we be unable to make our wishes known. This paperwork can then be shared with close loved ones and put on file at your local hospital. We will go through the entire Advance Care Planning packet and take time to answer questions.
Advance Care Planning packets will be available in the Central Church office one month in advance of the class, at no cost.
You may also download and print the free PDF documents anytime from the Munson Healthcare website.
The Central Church family will provide volunteers to assist with supervision, meal preparation and facility operations at the Safe Harbor Shelter throughout the week.
More details and the sign up form will be available in September.
