SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

Saturday, September 28th - The Christians Under Construction Sunday Class will host a fun afternoon of games of the past from 4 p.m. until 6, in and around the Fellowship Hall. At 6 pm, we will gather at the church cemetery to honor the Saints of Center in a very moving “Passing of the Light” ceremony. After the ceremony at the cemetery, we will return to the church for an old fashioned ice cream social in the Fellowship Hall.

Sunday, September 29th - A joint church service will be held beginning at 10:30 AM. Lunch will be served in the CFC immediately following the service. The church will provide the meats for the meal. Those attending are asked to bring a favorite side dish or two to complement the meal. Birthday cake will be served for dessert, so desserts will not be needed. The American Heritage Girls will host the meal. A slideshow will be presented during the meal. After the meal, a time capsule will be planted at the flagpole. The capsule is to be opened in 50 years.

NOTE: On both Saturday and Sunday, pictures will be made for those who wish to dress in attire of the past.
