Call to Worship
Almighty God, we pray for your blessing
on the church in this place.
Here may the faithful find salvation,
and the careless be awakened.
Here may the doubting find faith,
and the anxious be encouraged.
Here may the tempted find help,
and the sorrowful find comfort.
Here may the weary find rest,
and the strong be renewed.
Here may the aged find consolation
and the young be inspired;
through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

September Benevolence – Hurricane Harvey Relief
Our church council, following the encouragement of ABCUSA’s General Secretary, has agreed to shift our special mission focus for September to Hurricane relief through One Great Hour of Sharing. As the situation unfolds, and long-term rebuilding efforts get under way, we’ll begin exploring how we partner with American Baptist Home Mission Societies to be part of the effort. Thank you all for your support. I know Central will go above and beyond, as we always do.
