Your New Confidence
At the end of the story of Naomi and Ruth, God has moved this pair of widows from famine to feast, from emptiness to fullness, from bitterness to joy, from devastating death to everlasting life. After ten years of barrenness, the Lord gives Ruth a son. And that baby becomes an integral link to King David and, eventually, the Savior of the World. Ruth never could have known that’s what God was doing. But he is the Redeemer. That’s what he does.
Please read Ruth 4:1-22 this week. Then join us at 10:15 this Sunday morning January 31 as we conclude our “Everything New!” series with the confidence we have in Jesus Christ. As our redeemer, Jesus takes everything in our lives that has gone wrong and makes it right. He fixes in our lives what is broken. Whatever havoc the pandemic has wreaked in your life, whatever lingering effect you still feel, our God is committed to taking all of it into himself and creating something beautiful and eternal and new.
Masks On Sundays
As a church family, we are committed to acting in loving and responsible ways. From now through the duration of this current surge, the wearing of masks or face shields will be required inside the Central church building. You'll notice updated signs on all exterior doors and announcements on the Central app, the church website, and across all our social media platforms.
You will also notice that the pews in the worship center have been re-taped so the distance between us is two pews instead of one.
It's important that we keep meeting together in-person as a congregation; we're convinced that worshiping and serving together are vital in shaping us into the image of Christ. And our shepherds believe these steps are necessary to continue our in-person gatherings, to show support of our local public health officials and city leaders, and to protect the well-being of our brothers and sisters at Central. Children's worship is still offered at 10:15 on Sunday mornings.
If you are experiencing any symptoms, if you've tested positive or been exposed to someone testing positive in the past 14-days, please stay home. Keep washing your hands and staying at least six-feet away from others. And, this Sunday at Central, wear your masks.
