This month our Tuesday will be November 21st and we will need your help. 
 
If you can help prepare the meal, get the meal ready to transport, help transport the meal to Grace, serve the meal, or help us clean up, it would be greatly appreciated.  There are many different aspects that go into following Jesus’ example when he said, “I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint on the way.” (Matt. 15:32), and if you could help with any of them it would be much needed and welcome. 

There is also a list on the desk outside the church office with needed items for the meal where you can sign up to help bring/donate things that will be needed for this meal.  You can also contact the church office to get more information about our Love Thy Neighbor Tuesday meals.

MTCS Concert Postponed

The organ blower motor on our pipe-organ has decided it was time to call it quits. The blower and motor that makes it turn provided the air from which the pipes sound.  No air, no sound, no concert.  We are in the process of getting information about the blower and will let everyone know of the details as soon as we know. 
 
We WILL reschedule the concert after the first of the year.

On Tuesday, September 19th it will be our turn to serve our unsheltered neighbors a meal, starting at 5:30pm.  

We always welcome any, and all, volunteers who would like to help us put together the meals, serve the meals, and clean up afterwards.  It is never an easy job, but it is rewarding to share what we have with those in our neighborhood who are in need.  We follow the words in Matthew 25:35, where Jesus told to the disciples on Mount Olive:

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,”
 
We invite you to come and help us to fulfill Jesus’ words to all the world.

Ozark Food Harvest -
2022 Lenten Fish Drive


This Lenten SeasonCentral Christian Church will join with Ozarks Food Harvest from March 13 – April 24 with the annual Lenten Fish Drive.  In 2015, the community began “fishing” for struggling families and neighbors through a food drive that collects high-protein fish products during Lent.

Collected fish items will benefit the one in five children and one in seven adults who face food insecurity in the Ozarks. Fish contains many nutrients and has a high protein value, and it is requested by many people who receive food assistance through our network of 270 hunger-relief partners.

If you would like to donate online, please click on the 'Online Giving' tab above and follow the instructions.
