Welcome and Announcements
Passing the Peace
Call to Worship – based on Isaiah 60
Arise, shine, for your light has come!
The glory of the Lord has risen upon us.
Let us praise the Lord together.
The sun shall no longer be our light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on us,
for the Lord will be our light, and our God will be our glory.
The Lord will be our everlasting light, and our days of sorrow will end.
Come, let us sing to our light and salvation!

February Benevolence: World Vision – We love the way Jesus cared for the poor and oppressed, the way he showed us how to listen to children, and how to look out for widow and orphans. As a Christian organization, we serve all people, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or creed. Our hope is to reflect the unconditional and transformative love of Jesus in culturally appropriate ways.
Women’s Friendship Group – The Wednesday night women’s group will be meeting this Wednesday, February 19th at 7:15pm, here at Central. This will be the last meeting until after Easter. All are welcome!
A Special Thank You – Joyce would like to extend her deepest gratitude to those who were able to attend the Funeral of Walt, her beloved husband. It is a blessing to have been with so many loving friends during this time.
