Central Church will host a pie auction Sunday, April 7, from 9:45 – 10:45 a.m. in the Church Fellowship Hall. A wide variety of pies and baked goods will be up for auction, with Steve Farrell as the auctioneer. Everyone in attendance will also have the chance to vote for who gets a pie in their face – Pastor Thom or Levi! You DON’T want to miss that! Buckets will be set up in the Fellowship Hall the day of the auction. You may “vote” for which person you want to see get a pie smashed in their face by placing money in their jar! The pie smashing will take place at 10:45 a.m.! All proceeds from the auction will go towards the Youth Room Renovation Project! DONATIONS of pies and baked goods will also be accepted! If you would like to donate to this great cause and event, please sign up at the Welcome Center! For questions, please contact Levi at 605-949-0519. Mark your calendars!

Camp Sunday and Camp Carnival


On Sunday, March 31, we will hold a carnival to raise money for Camp Scholarships. The Camp Carnival will take place during the Sunday School hour from 9:45 – 10:45 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. There will be NO formal Sunday School downstairs. There will be LOTS of fun games and activities including annual favorites such as the Ring Toss, Duck Pond, and the Candy Bar Walk, and NEW GAMES to look forward to. Five-dollar punch cards will be sold for the kids to play the games. Each card has 20 punches. Make plans to come dressed in your camp clothes and bring your friends to enjoy a great morning together! Our Camp Coordinator, Kristy Liebe, will be available to answer any questions, and others will help you get registered for camp. Christy Heflin, director of Lake Poinsett Camp, will be sharing during the Camp Sunday Service! All are welcome!
