Interested in membership at Central Lutheran? Ever wondered why we follow the liturgical practices of the ancient Church? Want to find out why we call ourselves “Lutheran” Christians? Do you desire a deeper relationship with God? Are you hoping to connect with a faith community? Or, are you a long-time Centralite who would like to get better acquainted with the person sitting across the aisle from you on Sunday mornings? If so, plan to attend the “Nurturing Faithful Living” classes with Pastor Laurie on Together Tuesdays during Lent (March 7, 14, 21, 28, and April 4). For those who desire, new members will be received by Baptism and Affirmation of Baptism at the Easter Vigil on April 15. Be sure to fill out one of the “Visitor Information” cards in the pew rack, then hand it to an usher or place it in the offering plate if you’d like to learn more.

 

Walk to Jerusalem Once again this Lenten season the Health Ministry Team is sponsoring a virtual walk to Jerusalem. This year we are going to total all the miles that participants walk in an effort to collectively walk to Jerusalem. On Shrove Tuesday evening after eating pancakes participants will board a virtual flight to Amsterdam. On Ash Wednesday all participants should strap on their fitbits, pedometers, or smart phone app and start walking. Each Tuesday night and Sunday morning you can record your miles walked on the chart which will be in the narthex or the parish hall. The goal is to cover the distance from Amsterdam to Jerusalem: 2854 miles.   In the past many of us have had an individual goal of 2 miles a day during the forty days of Lent. Some of us walk much more than that. We can do this. If you walk with friends we can count their miles too. Sign up on the poster and pick up a sheet in the narthex to track your miles. Join us in the 2017 Walk to Jerusalem!

 

 

Listen in at Central – We no longer are broadcasting our services on the radio due to the station being sold.  The good news is that we are now broadcasting BOTH worship services streaming on the internet.  You can listen in through streaming while the service is in progress or you can listen on the podcast later in the week. You can get more information and access both the stream and the podcasts at https://www.welcometocentral.org/listen-in-at-central.   Spread the word to those who are home bound and listen in while you travel.  The Central community is indeed global.
