Bulletin for Sunday 09/28/2003

WARMTH FROM THE HEART

The first of three planned Warmth from the Heart coat distributions will take place on Saturday, October 11th which is getting very close. The fliers are in and those of you who have signed up to take them to specific locations should see Ron Taffe if you haven’t already done so. There are also some in the foyer for anyone who has a place to post them.

We can’t stress enough the need for more coats, especially the sizes listed in last week’s Gospel Guide and more children’s coats for ages kindergarten through seventh grade. Please ask family, friends, and co-workers if they have any they can donate. If you haven’t signed up to help on October 11 and would be willing to do so, please call Ron or Debbie Taffe. The elders want to show the community what a close knit family we have here at Central. The low-level of this outreach project is to provide coats to warm the bodies of the less fortunate in our community, but the higher purpose is to spread the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ! As brother Ted Kell reminded us last week, we all have a gift to be used for the glory of the Lord..

The giveaway assistance teams need to be assembled by September 28, and those teams will attend a short orientation meeting following morning worship on that day. We will either already have, or someday will retire from our "day jobs," but nowhere in the bible does it say we ever retire from the job we accepted the day we became part of the body of Christ. That job is to tell the world the wonderful news that Jesus is alive! Young or old, firm or infirm, there IS some small thing that each of you can do! Ron Taffe

PRAYER CONCERNS

When the Gospel Guide was prepared, Leoh Roberts was in Midwest Regional Medical Center, room 3336. Dwyane and Marcia’s granddaughter, April, was in Children’s Hospital with complications following her final chemo treatment. Verna Nell Young remained in Unity North, room 204 with pneumonia. Doris Whittern is in Jim Thorpe Rehab Hospital in room 820 at Southwest Medical Center. Betti Boswell spent two days in Unity North last week after a fall in her home. Dawson Shaffer, two year-old grandson of Sarah and Larry Smith had surgery at Baptist Medical Center on Friday of last week and returned home that same day. He is the son of Rick and DeLisa Shaffer and was recently diagnosed with lymphoma. It was good to have Harvey and Carletta Moore back from Houston this past Sunday. We also enjoyed seeing Sarah and Larry Smith and Nina Baylis.
