Joy of Giving – $11,556 raised for Community Outreach

A Christmas Collection to Benefit Community Outreach

A huge thank you goes out to our entire Central family! God moved us to give $11,556 in our 2014 Joy of Giving Christmas offering. Because of this the following six local outreach ministries will receive a check for $1,926 to assist them as they meet the needs our our local community in Jesus’ name! Home-bound Heroes; Christian 12 Step; Wyomina Park Elementary School; Good News Club; Helping Hands & Central Christian’s Love Fund. Go God! It’s exciting to see God move through our church family. So, let’s continue to celebrate; connect & contribute and do MORE for our God! As Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV says, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power at work within us, to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Thanks again!
