From the Desk of Bro. Billy
     This has no doubt been the most trying and unusual time of my life. During this time I have learned some valuable lessons, one is to have more patience and then I think the most valuable thing I’ve learned is to slow down and enjoy life. I have sat on the porch and watched the birds and squirrels and it has been a blessing.
     Now we are in the beginning stages of coming together again but we must go slow and follow the guidelines set before us. We were blessed to find a transmitter so for two weeks, (May 24 & 31), we will have drive in services which will begin at 10:00 AM. FM 89.3, will be the station to receive the message. It will also continue to broadcast on Facebook.
     On the first Sunday in June, the 7th, as long as everything continues to go as it is going now, we will meet together. Every other pew will be roped off and we will also be telecasting in the fellowship hall. We recommend and encourage that families sit together. We will also still be broadcasting our services on FM 89.3 as well as Facebook.
     We have been so blessed as God has watched over our Church family and we give Him praise and glory. God bless you and I look forward to being with you again.

     I am excited about easing into our worship services. I do not remember ever going this long without attending worship with sisters and brothers in praise and worship. Sure we can still worship at home or anywhere else, but I love the fellowship we share when we are all together. I miss the choir, the welcome, the hugs, the messages, all of our regular routine that we take for granted. I am praying that it will only be a few Sundays until we are joined together for one purpose, to praise and worship our God all together. Get ready, it won’t be very long. Praise God!! God Bless us all!! Bro. Danny

     Hello fellow Central Baptist family! As the days turn to weeks and weeks turn months, it's unreal to realize how long it has been since we have gathered to worship. There's a word that has been on my mind, wisdom. For our recent graduates, these days are full of decisions to be made and my prayers are that God will give you wisdom to make wise choices. This also applies to the rest of us as well! Toni and I are praying for each of you. We miss worshipping with you. Remember, wash your hands, don't touch your face, and maintain 6 feet from another person. God bless! Bro. Cory

     It seems so long since we have all been together, but I trust that all is well with you and your family! Harlen and I have been spending quiet days on our porch reading or enjoying nature. During this extended time of social distancing, I have noticed that many of our church family have been good to call and check on us and each other. My Sunday School class members stay in touch weekly, and the Deacons have been great about checking on our members as well. We are blessed with a very loving and caring church and this time away has shown this to be true! Galatians 6:10 says "As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith." The Bible instructs us to care for others, especially those of faith, so if you have not reached out to someone, I encourage you to call, text, face-time, or send a card to someone in our family. Several of our group are in the hospital or recovering from surgery. Many are lonely and need to hear a friendly voice. Others may need someone to talk to or pray with... whatever the case, make an effort this week to reach out to others; it is beneficial to both you and those you reach out to.
     Our June 2nd, Young at Heart dinner is moved to July 7 at Noon. We will have a family reunion, so bring items you would bring to a picnic. What a wonderful time of fellowship it will be!!!!!!
     Love you all! Reva
