Sunday mornings on fb live. Are you willing to teach someone how to share in our online celebration?

Central Community Thursday evening and Sunday Services, Women’s Bible Study and any other Small Groups on our campus will be suspended until at least Tuesday, March 31.

We will re-evaluate our ability to worship and meet together as a fellowship at that point – working in compliance with local, state and federal guidelines.

Unless there’s an emergency – or God opens the door for us – we won’t be going to Siempre Para Los Ninos on Wednesday’s or Jackets for Jesus on Sunday nights.

I’ve been in conversation with our leadership in Mexico and we met with many of the people we serve on skidrow last Sunday evening.

These are the most surreal of times. Those of you who’ve worked with us across the years know that too often we’ve pushed through boundaries without asking permission or seeking consensus, confidant in our work together.

This is not the time to be hard headed and go our own way.

We want to be good examples to the entire community and never bring anything but good with us where we go. This virus is invisible and well beyond our ability to wish it away. Our goal is to share The Love of God with the broader community in all we do. Even when it means we have to take a step back.

Towards that end, office hours will be curtailed and Pastor Ken, still under the age of 65, will be heading things up.

Like many of you, I’ll be spending some time in “self-isolation,” since I’m over 65.

I’d make a joke about this – but there’s nothing funny about a pandemic that’s killing people – we need to work together as a church, community, nation, humanity – to put an end to it as quickly as possible. That’s no joke.

Towards that end, when Pastor Ken’s in the office – or if I’m in my office writing – we’re happy to open the sanctuary for times of private prayer. No groups.

When cabin fever sets in, you’re also welcome to come work around the campus. Ken will have a list of things that need to get done.

This is all new, unexpected and carries a big learning curve. Please be patient with us. If you ever need Pastor Ken, or me, don’t hesitate to call the church office or reach out directly.

Sunday morning our leadership will bring worship and the message live on fb at 8:45am and it will be there to view throughout the week. Last week’s message, as well as a couple of year’s worth, is at 

please join us in worship online this Sunday.

Why not “like” and “follow” Central Community’s fb page now?

If you have any questions, concerns or input on something we’re overlooking, please let me know.

Giving – I always forget giving – you can tithe or make your offering at Central Community’s website at Click the Donate button and follow the prompts.

Without taking an offering for weeks, it’s hard to imagine the impact not having live services will make. Trusting God and each of you to remain faithful.

Most importantly, join me in praying for an end to this pandemic and the devastation it continues to bring in the lives of so many.

Please keep our staff and church in your prayers. Know that we’re praying for you and we’ll miss seeing you face to face!

Pastor Eric
