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 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.

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 April 30. Please help us touch the lives of people in our community.
We are updating the photo directory for Central Christian Church. Church directory pictures will be taken in the chapel on April 30 starting at 8:45 am and ending right before church begins. No appointment necessary. More dates will be announced soon! (If you are not able to participate by coming to church, you can send a digital photo to the church office.)
