Fire in the Sky

Luke 9:23 | Then he said to them all: "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me."

Grab your chairs, blankets, friends and family, and help us make this a booming success. Vendors at Central Christian will be selling hot dogs, nachos, pretzels, watermelon, cotton candy, snow cones, water and fresh squeezed lemonade. We will be lighting up the sky with fireworks and collecting non-perishable food items to conquer hunger. Hope to see you there!
