Seeking Broadcast Technicians

Central Church  is seeking applicants for two open positions with our Television Ministry.  The Broadcast Technician position works Sunday mornings from 9 to 11am in the TV Studio at Central Church, starting regularly in early September.  No experience is required as training is provided (over the summer if the applicant is available).  Duties include working the Sanctuary cameras, soundboard, and software associated with live streaming and television broadcasting.  There are always two people in the TV Studio while broadcasting, so no one has to work alone.  The positions pay $50 per Sunday. The schedule is flexible so that each technician can schedule to take off certain Sundays, should they have that need.  Applicants must be able to work legally within the US.

To indicate interest or to ask questions, please email Jeanne Thiemann at jthiemann@centralpres.org.  Thank you!

Youth Mission Trip

Our youth participants will depart with their chaperones for the Youth Mission Trip to Maine on June 22 and spend the following week in service to the community.  This trip is being done in conjunction with the youth at Christ Church.  Please pray for these young people as they serve!

WAVE Worship Summer Schedule

WAVE, Central’s popular contemporary worship service, has announced its Summer Schedule.  WAVE will meet outdoors on the church lawn (indoors in the air conditioning if the weather is poor) on July 14,21, and 28 at 5pm.  A free super will be served, and the Praise Band will supply music, while one of our pastors delivers a special sermon.  Check it out!

At the Congregational Meeting held on June 9, 2024, Central elected eight members to serve on the Pastor Nominating Committee, which will search for, interview, and nominate candidates to be our next senior pastor. Those members are: Bill Anderson, Casey Diekman, Jeff Gaylord, Leah Griffith, Alicia Kilduff, Noni Macpherson, Jessica Mills, and Drayton Wise.

CHRISTMAS IN BETHLEHEM

I have heard that they have canceled Christmas in Bethlehem this year—not the one in Pennsylvania, where I assume the giant star is still lit on the mountain ridge. Rather, they’ve canceled Christmas in the Bethlehem in Israel—the town where, according to the Gospels, Jesus was born. To be clear, what they have canceled in …

RETHINKING THE IMPORTANCE OF RITUAL

Ritual is not something that modern people like us think about very much. Indeed, like the word, “religion,” the word “ritual” has a bit of a negative connotation in many people’s minds these days. And yet, listening to an interview with Dan Senor, the co-author of a recent book entitled, The Genius of Israel: The …

THE POLICE CAR AT THE SYNAGOGUE

I saw a police car sitting in the parking lot of a synagogue the other day, and it made me sad. You see, I know the rabbi who serves the synagogue where that police car was stationed. We belong to the same interfaith group. I respect him. I enjoy being with him. And while we …
