Remember These In Prayer:

Mario Pimentel, son-in-law of Louise Clites, is scheduled to undergo ankle surgery today in Georgia.  This is to repair damage that a previous surgery did not resolve.

Ben Ruble, brother-in-law of Faye Bailey, will undergo surgery next Wednesday in North Carolina to remove a kidney that doctors fear is cancerous.  Our prayers have been requested.

Many are in the path of Hurricane Michael, which is now a category 4 storm and is being called “extremely dangerous”.  Pray for those who are most vulnerable, and for the first responders who will put their lives on the line to help those in distress.

Bible Study This Evening: Join many from your Central family who will gather at the building at 7:00 this evening to learn more of God’s will for their lives.  You would be blessed by joining us in this endeavor.

Sharing The Findings: Chig Gunter has asked that we share with all who continue to mourn David Gunter‘s unexpected recent passing that the autopsy determined that the cause of death was “sudden cardiac death due to dilated cardiomyopathy”.

Another Opportunity To Help:  Kathy Torgerson sent this request Tuesday: “A lady in the community called to see if we could help her get some furniture, beds, households goods, etc. together for her niece and the niece’s four children. The only thing they have is a kitchen table and four chairs.”  If you have something you’d like to give, call the church office.

Leaving The Old World:  *  “Following the light of the sun, we left the Old World.”  (Christopher Columbus) *  “Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.  He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”  (Colossians 1:12-14)
