Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a church of many hats. Yes, the mission is loving God and loving each other, spreading the Good News, changing the world for the better and reaching out into the community to those who are suffering and in need due to circumstance and events.
But Central also recognizes the daily needs of those among us who are seeking new friendships, new purposes and new experiences. The “Fall Line-up” will offer something for everyone—a chance to get involved in fulfilling activities.
The Disciples Women’s Ministry will resume monthly meetings on Tuesday, September 4 with Rev. Dr. Debbie Chisolm sharing the story of “Hulda and Anna” from the study guide "Purpose and Call." If you had the opportunity to hear Debbie speak in person or on WRR: Classical 101 Radio you know that the program is one you won’t want to miss.
And that is only the beginning. The “line-up” includes a variety of wonderful professional speakers like Rev. Deborah Morgan Stokes, Senior Minister of East Dallas Christian Church and Dr. Katie Hays of Galileo Church that prides itself on being the “quirky church for spiritual refugees.”
Always following the program is a “five-star lunch” in the dining area of Fellowship Hall. The cost for lunch is $5.00 and the meetings are open to everyone. Just call the church office for a reservation.
Beginning in September, Tuesday mornings at 8:30 you will have the opportunity to stretch your body and relax your mind in a Vinyasa Flow Yoga class. Vinyasa is a type of yoga that links movement and breath to attain balance in the mind and body. From the Sanskrit “to place in a special way,” vinyasa aligns a deliberate sequence of poses with the breath to achieve a continuous flow.
Classes are $10.00 for a one-hour session and they are “drop-in” enrollment, so no contracts or fees if you miss a day. The class encourages all ages and all levels of participation—you may sit in a chair if that is what you need. Enrollment will begin in August.
Dance Idea is a newly formed company with a studio on the second floor of Central’s building. Liz Owens teaches contemporary and Flamenco-inspired dance for children and adults. Visit the website http://www.danceidea.com/ for more information.
Sack Lunch Bible Study will resume on Wednesdays in September. Bring your lunch and learn as Dr. Ken Crawford, lead pastor of Central shares his biblical knowledge in an informal, round table Bible Study class. The class is free and everyone is welcome. Call the church for more information.
Church in the Dog Park meets the first and third Sundays of the month at 9 o’clock in the morning. Imagine how “cool” to enjoy coffee, donuts and fellowship with your dog at your side when the weather welcomes Autumn.
These opportunities are only a few offered at Central Christian Church. Visit the church website and Facebook page to stay tuned to “what is going on” at this progressive church that embraces community.
