PICNIC WITH THE PASTOR

Beginning Wednesday, September 23rd, Central will begin having “Picnic with the Pastor”!  The socially-distanced picnic will consist of pre-ordered boxed meals. There will be no family max price.  


Because the boxed meals will be purchased from an outside source, it will be mandatory that you pay for every boxed meal ordered. We will only have boxed meals that have been ordered so there will be no extras. The registration deadline will be each Wednesday at 10:00 a.m.


The socially-distanced picnic will be from 6:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. Immediately after, there will be a Bible Study lead by John Branning. There will be no small group discussions following the Bible Study.

  • *SENIOR ADULT VBS


    *SUBJECT TO CHANGE

    Due to COVID-19 and its impact on the state of Mississippi and our world, Central has determined it is best that we “do no harm” - one of John Wesley’s Three Simple Rules. To “do no harm” means that we not risk anyone’s health or safety. Therefore, we have decided to postpone our 2020 Senior Adult VBS to next year. Please plan to attend Senior Adult VBS 2021 September 13th-15th. We thank you for your continued support of our senior adult ministries and wish you good health. Our prayers are with you! 

     

    Blessings,

    Rev. Tim Wise

    Worship & Senior Adult Pastor
