Core Central

Core Central

Saturday, Oct. 8 // 9:00am-12:00pm // Room 212

You’ll enjoy community and fun at an experience we call Core Central. At this class, you’ll learn more about who we are as a church, how to grow in your faith, and the many life-giving ways you can be part of our church family, including the opportunity to make this your home church. Most people that will participate in Core Central will find a place to serve, and many will continue on in a LifeGroup with the people they’ve met. This is an ideal place to start if you’re looking for your next step at Central Community.

Matthew 25 Prayer Focus // Homelessness

Monday, Oct. 17 // 6:30pm // Room 215

This immersive bi-monthly prayer event focuses on Jesus’s call in Matthew 25 to love our neighbors. We’ll learn about the needs experienced by people in our community, how we can care for them, and there will be a time to visit a series of Prayer Point stations to lift these people up in prayer for specific needs.

October’s Matthew 25 Prayer Focus will be about the challenges facing the Wichita homeless, the support they are receiving, and how we can pray for them. Guest speakers will be from the H.O.T team, Union Rescue Mission, and the Wichita Children’s Home.
