I want to express my appreciation for all the loving acts of kindness shown to me before and after my surgery.  Your visits, calls, cards, prayers, beautiful rose, and delicious bread were all really appreciated.  I want to especially thank those who came to the hospital and my home.  It is really wonderful to have such a loving Christian family.  Thank you all so very much for everything.

In Christian love, Geri Outlaw

We do not know of any Central members in the hospital at this time.  It was good seeing Hazel Lee Behrnes back in worship Sunday.  Lynn Harmon’s sister, Betty Meister, has been diagnosed with acute stage four leukemia.  It is possible that another sister of Lynn’s, Mary Cosby will receive the same diagnosis soon.  Your continued prayers are requested.  Several Central members are well acquainted with Gary and Linda Snow in Seminole.  They were in a major auto crash a short time after worship this past Sunday.  Gary was immediately mediflighted to Presbyterian in extremely serious condition where he had extensive surgery.  Linda is also now at Presbyterian in serious condition.  Don’t forget to pray for Melba Boston.

Yesterday was a lot of fun! We went to Tecumseh and played in their annual volleyball tournament.  The weather was great and we had a blast!  Though we didn’t win, we advanced much farther than last year.  Jason Perry & Courtney Baskin left it all on the court and then had to leave the court with injuries!  Thankfully they were okay and a good time was had by all!

Seniors, mark Sunday, May 20th on your calendars!  That is the date for our Senior Reception.  We have four seniors being honored this year.  They are: Leslie Gettle, Kristin Gober, Marla Miller, and Jason Perry.  Everyone else mark this date as well.  It’s our time to let them know how much we love and support them.  Remember, May 20th.

Don’t forget that the camp applications are now available.  They’re on the youth bulletin board by the offices.  Camp this year is shaping up to be an awesome week.  Don’t miss out.

"Of the Seven Deadly Sins, anger is possibly the most fun.
To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past,
to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come,
to savour to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and
the pain you are giving back - in many ways it is a feast fit for a king.
The chief drawback is that what you are wolfing down is yourself.
The skeleton at the feast is you. "
