Advent Asks Us to Open Our Hearts to God
At Central Church each year there are three ways to share the Joy of Giving: Christmas Flowers, Christmas Greetings, and the PC(USA) Joy Offering.
Each year, Central offers you the opportunity to remember or honor a loved one through a gift to the Flower Fund. During the Advent and Christmas season, the arrangements in the sanctuary will add a visual reminder of the beauty and spirit of the season. A portion of your gift will also be used throughout the coming year continuing to bring joy and beauty to our worship services.
Your name along with the ones you wish to honor/memorialize will be published in the bulletin on Sunday, December 23. The deadline for submitting your payment/names is Tuesday, December 18.
Too busy to send Christmas cards this year? How about sending some greetings to your Central family-with all of the payoff but none of the work, while contributing to the work of the Child Development Center?
This year, send a Christmas Greeting at Central! Your donation – which can be as small or as large as you wish – will help grow the Lynn Carter Tuition Scholarship Fund of the CDC. This scholarship fund helps provide tuition assistance to those who might not otherwise be able to attend the CDC.
You can submit your greeting and payment online. Your greeting will be published in the worship bulletin on Sunday, December 23. The deadline is Tuesday, December 18. So, this season, skip the cards and send a Christmas greeting that will help the CDC families!
This Advent and Christmas season, we celebrate the gift of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. By giving to the Christmas Joy Offering, we recognize the indescribable gift God has given us in Jesus Christ and also in the leaders within our church. By giving to the Christmas Joy Offering, you honor this gift by providing assistance to current and retired church workers in their time of need and developing our future leaders at Presbyterian-related racial ethnic schools and colleges. The Joy Offering will be received during worship on Sunday, December 23, however, you can make your gift at any time.
