How can you help: PLEASE COME, and if you like to bake, offer to be one of our bakers!!


We are having a few local celebrity bakers, but to make this truly successful we would like to have creations from each of our affiliate churches for the silent auction. Our goal is 50 desserts! Please consider sharing your talent with us. We need desserts that won’t need refrigeration. Cakes, pies, cupcakes, or whatever is your favorite that you enjoy serving for special occasions. All desserts need to be in a disposable pan or containers. If you are willing to participate, please give your name and contact information to your church office by September 23. One of our committee members will contact you with more info about when to bring your dessert to New Life Church of Faith or arrange for someone to pick it up from you.


The Bean Thing

Everyone at Central always looks forward to the Bean Thing. If you are unfamiliar with the Bean Thing it is simply our name for the annual all-church picnic. It is typically combined with an outdoor worship service. And, as you might guess from the name, one of the features of the picnic is soup beans cooked over an open fire. This year’s Bean Thing will be held on September 11 at 11:00 am at Lincoln Park just a few blocks from the church and a picnic will follow. There will be an 8:30 am service at the church for those that find navigating at the park challenging.


Neighborhood Association

The Center City Neighborhood Association will meet on Thursday July 7 at 7:00 PM in the community room at Central Christian Church. The featured speaker will be Larry Thomason, the Director of the Department  of Public Safety of the City of Danville. Director Thomason is responsible for the Police and Fire Departments for the City of Danville. This is a very opportune time to have Larry meet with us as the city is undertaking new steps to curb violence and the city has also enacted a new chronic nuisance violation ordinance. Now is the time to engage in this critical dialogue. We will provide updates on the Community Development Block Grant program that provides so much hope for so many homeowners in our neighborhood area. We will talk about our upcoming block party. And we will discuss our big plans for the upcoming year. Center City is the epicenter for so many good things happening in our community. Come out and meet our great neighbors and join us in the wonderful fellowship that takes place. There are delicious cookies, compliments of Millie and Becci, hot dogs and brats, and maybe more. You never know unless you come.
