The Visitor Central Christian Church, Enid, Oklahoma January 29, 2015 Vol. 79 No.4 Phone: 233-1214 Fax Number: 233-1228 website: www.centralenid.org Scout Sunday February 1st Central Christian Church is celebrating Scout Sunday. You will notice this year that we have Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts AND Girl Scouts in attendance. Both 10:15 services will begin with a flag ceremony led by our scouts and will close with flag retrieval. Scouting is a ministry of Central. Central offers space to all of these Scouts as a place to hold meetings, and provides leadership and hospitality to these programs that build character in young people. Central has in the last few months opened its doors to Pack 3 as there was space available. Girl Scouts have been meeting in our church for a couple years. Boy Scout Troop 2 has been chartered with Central for 68 years in a row. That is a long standing ministry of people who have formed a relationship with our church. WNF Bible Class Beginning February 4th, as part of Wednesday Night Fellowship, we will have a Bible class based on Adam Hamilton’s book, Final Words from the Cross. This class examines Christ’s dying hours and his final words as seen through the eyes and ears of those who stood near the cross. Each class will start at 6:45 pm in the chapel and have scripture, a ten-minute video, discussion and prayer. Class topics include: Father, Forgive Them Today You Will Be With Me in Paradise Behold Your Son. . . Behold Your Mother My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me? I Thirst It Is Finished . . .

Tell our story – the story of how our church makes a difference in our lives and in the lives of others. Our story includes: We are one of the few churches in Enid that have both traditional and contemporary worship services. We have a vibrant Sunday school program and weekday Bible classes for all ages. In our classes, a person can make personal relationships, learn about God and better know Jesus Christ. We have over 35 young adults who regularly attend worship. Most churches have declining finances. Our finances are growing and have never been better. We average 4-7 visitors attending our services every week. We have opportunities for overseas mission trips. Our programs that minister to older adults are second to none. Our programs for children –“Worship and Wonder” and “Following Jesus”- have no equal in Enid. We have excellent opportunities for summer camps and weekend retreats for teenagers. We have so much to be proud of at Central Christian Church. Tell our story. Invite. Welcome. Thank God.

February 1, 2015 ACOLYTES Paige Waldrip & Meleah Meyer It has been some time since we have Worship & Wonder had a young adult event of some kind. Storyteller: Carol We are starting fresh now. I have made Greeter: Peg & Kari contact with several young adults and Following Jesus have begun to ask the questions, “What Storyteller: Sally Greeter: Sonya do you want in a Young Adult program at Central?” As I compile answers, the 1st-5th Rotation Cooking with Sally church as a whole will see some Computers with Dave changes in the Visitor as we implement Pre K & K With Gail plans and begin to imagine what young adult ministry looks like in 2015. Could be a Sunday School, could be an evening Bible Study, could be a movie once in a while. Who knows? I am looking forward to finding out. ~ John Wheeler Coffee Stains I give my heartfelt appreciation to all our families that stayed to listen to me talk about Youth Ministry on Sunday following church. We served about 70 folks and had most of the potatoes taken home by the time the kitchen closed. Our teenagers in attendance: Nicole Bushman, Brenna Bushman, Daija Courtney, Brent Tilley, Emily Angleton, Connor Angleton, Carol Jarrett, Jordan Villalva, and Taylor Foster, all appreciate your support for them to continue to do youth ministry events. Our church is committed to helping kids go to camp, regional events, and fun local things. The money raised helps our kids attend these events. Thanks to all our donors that made the Baked Potato Pile On the success that it was. Peace, JW.
