On Sunday, July 5, Central will be hosting one service at 11 am. This will be patriotic in theme and all are welcome. Wear your red, white and blue and we will see you on the 5!
Hope Southern Indiana is busy with the Back To School programs. One of the most important is the Clothe-A-Teen which provides needy Floyd County teens with new clothing for the new school year. Each eligible student receives a $75 voucher which can be used to purchase school appropriate clothing and shoes at a local department store. Shopping day for the students will be Monday, July 27. CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH has been one of the strongest supporters of this program. If you can assist in this most worthy cause, checks can be made out to Central Christian Church with the notation CLOTHE-A-TEEN, or you can put cash in one of the Offering Envelopes and mark it CLOTHE-A-TEEN. Thank You for your generosity!
Pack the Bus
The 2015-2016 Pack the Bus program through Hope Southern Indiana is well underway and our help is needed. Through the program, local churches, businesses and organizations work together to provide new backpacks filled with the school supplies needed for Floyd County students on the Free Breakfast and Lunch Program. This year 2,100 filled backpacks plus an additional assortment of basic supplies are needed for children in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. Detailed lists of items needed for Elementary School backpacks and Middle School backpacks are posted on the bulletin board in the Gathering Area. If you are not able to provide an entire filled backpack, donations of single items and cash are welcomed and appreciated. Volunteers will be assembling the backpacks in the Activities and Programs Center during the week of July 13. Backpacks will be delivered to schools on July 17. Anyone wishing to help assemble the backpacks are encouraged to do so. Many hands are needed to complete the hours of work that it takes to provide this service to the children and youth of our community. If you can help, please call Linda Reynolds at Hope Southern Indiana.
