30-something singles are invited for a Christmas Party on Dec. 16 at 7:00pm in the Central Church Hearth Room. Please bring a white elephant gift and a snack to share. If you have a friend who is single and in their 30s, please let them know to come to Central for food, fellowship, and fun.

Mentoring changes lives—both yours and your mentee’s. One of our Central Renewal mentors recently helped guide a newly homeless mother of four from sleeping on a couch to being reunited with her kids in a three-bedroom home. That’s the kind of life change you can be a part of as a mentor.

Are you interested in mentoring through our Central Renewal and Pettigrew Heights ministries? We’d love for you to come to our info meeting/training on Dec. 11 at 12:30pm in the Hearth Room. Food is provided. RSVP to Nathan Pruett, Outreach Pastor, at [email protected]

Do you have a heart for serving children with special abilities? If you do, we’d love to plug you in to volunteer in a one-on-one capacity with some of those awesome kids during our 11:15 service. Please contact [email protected] to get more info and get plugged in.

We’re blessed at Central to have people like you who support Central’s mission with your financial gifts. Thank you for your continued kindness and generosity. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to do the work God has called us to do.

We want you to know that we’ve switched our online giving platform from Online Giving to Subsplash Giving. Why did we make the change? One of the main reasons is that, with Subsplash, giving a financial gift online will be easier than ever.

Please use the giving portal found at centralsf.org/give to give a one-time gift or set up a recurring gift. For step-by-step instructions on how to set up your account, click here.

**PLEASE NOTE: You will need to cancel your current recurring gift in our old system, Online Giving, as you make the switch Subsplash Giving. For instructions on how to do that, please click here. Be sure to switch no later than Saturday, Dec. 3.

Are you the kind of person who wants to stay plugged in at Central? If you are, we’ve got great news—we just launched our Subsplash app! If you want dynamic content, sermons streamed right to your phone, quick access to our events, and useful resources for LifeGroups or personal study, then it’s time to get the app on your phone.

We’ll be sharing more about the app in the future, but we hope you’ll download it and start using it to stay more connected with Central!

Christmas is often stereotyped as the holiday of joy and cheer.

But for some, it looks much different.

The reality is, people all around us are suffering with pain, loss, loneliness and more and we feel it’s our responsibility as the church to create a space for for anyone experiencing those emotions during this holiday season.

That is why we are hosting our Blue Christmas service on Dec. 20 at 6:30pm—IN PERSON—in the Hearth Room.

This service will be a place where we can see and support one another to find comfort in the presence of God with us.

Share this with someone you know—it may just be their starting point for recovery.

You can RSVP at centralsf.org/bluechristmasRSVP. We ask you to sign up if you plan to attend so we know ahead of time if we’ll need to move to a larger room. Thanks!

If you are a female and are college-age or older, this opportunity is for you! Woven exists to develop faith-based, intergenerational relationships among the women of Central Church through Bible study and small group accountability.
