The Neighborhood Agape Meal is a combination of worship and mission, centering around a delicious family-style meal enjoyed by our homeless neighbors and our members who volunteer to serve the dinner. Worship allows all present to sing, pray for each other, share talents and gifts, hear the Word of God and partake in weekly communion.
Central Christian Church participates in the serving at the Agape Meal normally on each 2nd Thursday of the month, leaving the church at 5:00 pm & returning about 7:15 pm.
This month’s Agape Meal was postponed a week. The group will be going on this Thursday, March 20!

Why Scripture Memorization
You may wonder why the Scripture Team has suggested that everyone memorize a specific Bible verse in the month of March. It has been my experience that when we seek fellowship with the Father, we will find Him in His word.
Special verses that are memorized may come to you at times which can comfort and help you. Perhaps, as a touchstone to re-focus during your daily devotionals, to give you comfort during difficult days; or, as a source to express joy and thankfulness to the Lord.
CCC's Worship Team has been working to find ways to help us all commune with God in new ways during the season of Lent. What better time than during communion?
At the 830 service, we will take communion in silence. This will provide an opportunity to connect with God in the mind and spirit, as well as physically, in the taking of the bread and cup.
At 11, we will move forward toward the table to offer (our gifts) and to receive (the bread and cup). This way of engaging with the table helps us be more active participants in the celebration.
We hope you have a meaningful and life-changing Lent.
--Your Worship Team
