This Sunday our week of church camp at Burnt Cabin begins. Camp is a life changing experience and a powerful influence on our young people. I am glad this is available for our youth. Please remember us in your prayers while at camp. I want to say a great big THANK YOU to all from the Central congregation who make this week of camp possible. First of all, I am completely indebted to Ann Bivins, our church secretary, for the amazing amount of work she has done in the office over these past few weeks in helping me in preparation for camp – putting together the camp books, registration of applications, and so many other things she does to make my job of directing the camp so much easier!
I am also so thankful to all those from Central who are going as counselors and staff. Amber Curtis (our nurse we can’t live without!), Nathan Kelly, Bob Perry, Lindsey Perry, Maggie Prater, Bob and Janet Stephens, Andy Stephens, and Matt Stephens. They are truly servants of the kingdom. They have gone the “extra mile” in sacrificing time away from their jobs and family so that these young people can have this great week. I want to also express my appreciation to all the parents, grandparents, and members who help support and encourage our camp week and especially those who have helped sponsor a child. May the Lord richly bless you in Christ Jesus.
Last Sunday morning Mike Hensley responded to the invitation seeking encouragement to have Christ in his life. We are so thankful for Mike’s heart and desire to be right with God. He and his five year old daughter have been visiting Central since Friends’ & Family Day as guests of Jeff and Darlene Todd. Please continue to keep Mike in your prayers as he learns about God’s plan of salvation and the Lord’s church.
We are so pleased to welcome back Jon Merritt who on Sunday evening made known his desire to place membership and work and worship with the Central church family. He has a long history with this church, and it is good to have him back. Please give him a warm “welcome home”. Jon is the son of Sue Merritt. His address is
915 Overland Court, Shawnee, OK 74801. Telephone number is 275-5766

Dear Central Family, Thank you all so much for the reception and the Bible and of course all the cards, gifts and money that you have given me. I appreciate it a lot. I also appreciate all the support that you all have given to me over the past 18 years, whether it be with fund raisers or taking care of me when
was in the hospital. I could always count on you all to be there for me and my family. Thank you all so much. Chad
Love, Austin Beard.
