Worship Series

Healthy Congregation / Healthy Souls

In a Sunday-morning, sermon series running through the end of June, Pastor Bob Arnold will be leading us in a study entitled Healthy Congregation / Healthy Souls.  Jesus Christ remains the same yesterday, today, and forever, but everything else about our world changes rapidly, particularly in these revolutionary times.  This series invites us to make healthy adaptations to the changing times while continuing to live by the timeless, life-giving truths of Jesus Christ.  The messages will consider applications in the personal lives of individuals and in the collective life of the congregation.

Summer Church Camp

Summer camp is coming. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Illinois and Wisconsin offers two settings for church camp: Pilgrim Park (PP) up north and Camp Walter Scott (CWS) down south, with the exception of a special camp at First Christian in Peoria (FC). Our church supports youth going to camp by paying half of the costs of registration. (If a camper needs more assistance to be able to go, we can work that out as well.) Below is a schedule. Please note that the grade is the grade completed. There are other opportunities for family camp, grandparents and me, and post-high camp too. Please see the bulletin board by the stairs for more information.

CYF—grades 9-12—CWS—June 11-17
Beginners—grades K-2—CWS—June 18-21
JYF—grades 3-5—PP—June 25-July 1

Food Pantry Sunday

During these trying difficult times, there are many people who are dependent on local food pantries for assistance. Our church has supported the Danville Township Food Pantry for many years as a way of reaching out to those in need. While you are welcome to bring donations for the food pantry at any time, the last Sunday of each month is designated here at Central as Food Pantry Sunday. We invite you to bring non-perishable, prepackaged items and place them in the containers in front of the church office. This month’s Food Pantry Sunday will be June 25. Please help us touch the lives of people in our community.

General Assembly

This summer, on July 8 – 12, the General Assembly of the Christian Church (DOC) in the United States and Canada will take place in Indianapolis.  The theme for this year’s gathering is simply the word “One.”

This gathering gives those who attend the opportunity to join in worship with other members of our denomination from across the United States and Canada.  There will be inspirational preaching, helpful workshops, and lots of information on Christian Church (DOC) ministries and resources.  For the first time in twelve years, this assembly will also feature the election of a new General Minister and President for the Christian Church (DOC).  Up to three lay people who register from our congregation will have voting privileges in that election and in the business sessions of the General Assembly.

This General Assembly also offers the advantage of taking place close enough to Danville that a person can easily commute to each day’s session.  You can gather further information or make your reservations at ga.disciples.org.
