Bulletin for Sunday 12/21/2003

NO GOSPEL GUIDE NEXT WEEK

We do not publish the Gospel Guide the last week in December. Lists for those to serve the congregation on both December 21st and 28th may be found below. If your name is down for the 28th, you may wish to print this page as a reminder. Anytime you cannot serve, please call Al Pendleton at 273-4754.


MIDWEEK DEVOTIONALS

There will be no classes on the Wednesday evenings of December 24th and 31st. According to our usual custom, we will have devotionals in the auditorium. No doubt there will be many visitors, and these are always joyful moments of worship and reunion.


WARMTH FROM THE HEART

The final Warmth from the Heart Coat giveaway for this season will occur on Saturday, January 10th from 10AM to 1PM. Some of you will be individually contacted to assist on that day. One last time we will need your help in acquiring knit caps, gloves and coats for children aged 6 to 16. Any additional needs will be announced in the coming weeks.

THANK YOU

Thanks for all the prayers and visits and prayers on my behalf during my recent illness.

In Christian love, Fay Crosby

Dear Christian Family,

Thank you all for the lovely cards and most of all your prayers while I was in the hospital. Thanks to Dwyane and Harvey & Carletta and Robert & Ann for the visits. Also want to thank all for the calls and concern while I was ill. Hope to be in services next Sunday,

Yours in Christ, Ellen Childers

Dear Central Family,

We are so thankful for all the acts of kindness shown for Chad and our family over the last month. Chad has a long recovery ahead of him and many more challenges to face in the coming months and years. Please continue to pray for him and our family so we can have the strength and patience needed. We don't know what we would do without God's help and your support. We love you all.

In Christian love, Dale, Denise, Adam, Austin, and Chad Beard.

Happy Holidays !!!

Alice Rice wishes to express her thanks to you for all your calls, cards, and concern during her recent illness.


THANK YOU TO YOUTH

Thanks for the lovely basket. I really enjoyed the goodies. Fay Crosby

To each one of our young people, we say thanks and we are very thankful for the holiday treats. We love you for being so nice. Roe & Louise Honaker

I wish to thank the young folk at Central for taking the time to think of others. It was so great that they took the time to prepare the basket and send it to me. It means so much to know the love and kindness that they show, and I love every one of them very much. In Christian love, Babe Doyle

Youth News
Bob Stephens

Thank you to Jim and Vivian Cross for opening their home to the teens last weekend. We had a wonderful time (though the teens really don't play dirty Santa very well). We appreciate members at Central who show an interest in our teens as so many of you do. Thank you.

Basketball season has started in the High School world. Matt and Andy Stephens are playing for Tecumseh again this year and are already contributing to their teams. I'm not sure where they got their basketball skills, it sure isn't from their dad!

Way to go Tim! On December 9, Tim Norton placed second in 100 backstroke and first in 400 freestyle relay. Then at the Triangular meet on December 11, Tim came in second on the individual 100 backstroke with his team winning the 200-meter medley relay and the 200 freestyle relay.

This coming Saturday we (the teens) will meet at the church building at 10 a.m. to bake Rita cookies. We will go out for lunch then come back to the building to gather up our cookies and go caroling. This has always been a lot of fun, and I encourage all the teens to come and participate.


COMING EVENTS:

December 20 - Saturday - Baking cookies at building 10 a.m.

December 27 - Saturday - Ice skating in OKC

December 31 - Wednesday - New Years Party following worship
