Spring is the season of happiness. Flowers, leaves, plants, trees, vegetables and fruits start blossoming. Grass turns green and birds wake you in the morning with nature’s song.
Spring represents growth and re-birth. The holiest of celebrations in the Christian religion takes place in Spring— the resurrection of Jesus.
Spring is the perfect time to begin a new project or activity that you have been thinking about.
Here’s what we’re doing at Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and you are invited to “spring forward” and get involved! No pressure, no ties—just the happiness of Springtime.
Saturday, March 24, bring your children and their friends to “Breakfast with the Rabbit and an Easter Egg Hunt.” It is a community event and it is free. At 9:30 we will meet in the church fellowship hall to enjoy pancakes, sausages and breakfast beverages hosted by Peter Cottontail. Kids can enjoy games and music while Mom and Dad have coffee and pancakes. After breakfast, we will divide into age groups and try to find the one-thousand eggs the Easter bunny left on the church’s four-acre grounds.
All this fun is free, but please call the church office and let us know how many of you are coming so we have plenty of food. 214-526-7291.
Traditional Palm Sunday service will be held in the church sanctuary on Sunday, March 25 at 11 a.m. followed by lunch in fellowship hall. The menu will include a typical spring lunch of ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans, hot rolls and desserts provided by the Disciples Women’s Ministries. There is no charge for lunch but it is one of the women’s annual fund-raisers so donations are accepted and appreciated. If you are new to the community, this is a wonderful way to meet some folks.
Easter Service is at 11 a.m. in the sanctuary on Easter morning. There will be plenty of seating and plenty of parking. Do come about an hour early and enjoy coffee and light brunch in fellowship hall.
Tuesday morning, April 3, the Disciples Women will meet in the church parlor at 10:30 for a “field trip” to the Ft. Worth Stockyards for lunch and touring. If you are interested in joining us, call President Shelia Huffman at 214-827-4568.
You are always welcome at Central. It is not just church, but a community and village. During the week co-working space is available. You can place an order for “in the kitchen” made bagels, join a dance class, Tai-Chi, Bible Study and more.
Central is also the “church with the dog park.” A one-acre, ten-year old community dog park is located on the grounds, behind the church. Come and hang out with your dog, read a book or visit with other dog lovers. Or, bring your dog to church on Sunday. A short, casual service with music, coffee and do-nuts is offered in the dog park at 9 a.m. on the first and third Sundays of the month.
There is something at Central for everyone so “spring forward” and get involved.
