We heard a call to unity yesterday, a call away from division and rivalry and toward being one in Christ. It's a calling modeled by the Trinity, who is three distinct Persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) and One God.
This calling, of course, isn't just for particular churches or even particular denominations. It is for all Christians.
This Thursday and Friday, many congregations in our community will be part of a unifying event. Helping Florence Flourish (a collaborative ministry of many churches in our area, including Central) has invited Dr. Tony Evans to teach in two services. The gathering, worship, and teachings will be different each night. The call will be the same: to grow in our unity as Christ-followers in this particular area. There will be an emphasis placed on moving beyond racial division. To learn more and to register go to:
Our particular church continues to be unified by our mission of following Jesus, loving God, and loving neighbor. We are fortunate to be able to do that within and beyond our walls. We have wonderful spaces in which to do ministry, but it is time to update some of those.
You are invited to be part of a discussion of what is being considered, including in the areas of The Commons, the Davis Christian Life Center (especially as it relates to The Well), the Youth area, and the Adult Education area.
We will gather for lunch this Sunday (February 19) in the Davis Center, followed by Town Hall meetings in each of the areas listed above. Please register for the meal by emailing or calling Sandy Conner (firstname.lastname@example.org, 843-662-3218) in the church office before Thursday (but go ahead and do it now while you're thinking of it).
Let us remain one in ministry within our congregation, our community, our nation, and world, for the sake of the one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
