OUR GOSPEL MEETING

We now have the sermon topics for our gospel meeting with brother Ted Kell, September 14 - 17. You can find these under "Looking Ahead." Please keep in mind that our teen and adult Bible classes will be combined that Sunday morning and that we will have a potluck lunch for the entire congregation after the morning service.

MEN'S BREAKFAST
All the men of the congregation are invited and encouraged to have breakfast together Saturday morning, eight o'clock at Benton's Cafe. Dutch treat. The purpose is to update you on several things and anything else you need to know and to get your input concerning the work at Central.

COMPUTER STUFF

APPRECIATION
We express our thanks to Bob, Steve, Matt, Andy, Tim, and Nathan for giving up part of their Saturday last week to help clean up the yard of the new Out Reach House (the two story house at Tenth & Union) which will be used for the Warmth from the Heart and other similar benevolence projects in the future.

COOKOUT
There will be a cookout at Boy Scout Park Saturday at 5 p.m. for the parents and teens including the newest members with the start of school this year. If you would like to bring or donate a food item, please contact Bob or Janet Stephens.
