Happy Thanksgiving!!

This year we asked the Staff at Central what they were thankful for…here’s a little glimpse into the hearts of your Staff…

I am thankful for the kind hearted people of Central Christian Church. And for coffee.


I am thankful for the “8-15” God put in my life. They are all people I never thought I would have anything in common with and now they are some of my closest friends. Now to get them to JESUS!


I’m thankful for the way I feel supported and loved by my church family.

I’m thankful that God is in control and works all things to good.


I am thankful for my whole family, especially my husband, kids and their kids.

I am also thankful for the Count team and their faithfulness.


I’m thankful that God gently prepares us for each coming season of life.

I’m thankful for the family of God who pray together, encourage each other, comfort one another, and lean into God as one.


I am thankful for my community group who is there to encourage, to challenge and to laugh and cry with.

I am thankful for the times when my family can all be together and sit around the table to share a meal and talk and laugh and have a great time!


I am thankful that for the mornings when I head out to drop my daughter Alli off at school…I can look up at the beautifully painted sky and tell her that we know the Artist and He loves us!

I am thankful for the smiling faces that greet me every morning when I get to work.

I am thankful for a husband who will wash the dishes after dinner!


To this day I still stand amazed that God has provided this work place for me. After 13 years I still love to be here with the most amazing people…God’s people. That is what I am very thankful for. He has blessed me with the most amazing job to help and serve and I love to be here every day! Thank you LORD!!


I am thankful for a warm home to live in…

I am thankful to spend time with my two sons on Thanksgiving

I am thankful that God’s mercies are new every morning!


I am thankful for the opportunity Central provides for my family and I to worship and serve, a home that allows us to use our gifts for His service.


…for the gifts given by God – for His Son (my Savior and Lord) and the life I now have

…for the wonderful gift of my wife and the love she has for her Lord and Savior


I am thankful for my family, they have been a great help this past year.


What am I thankful for? Debt paid off, fantastic staff, great leaders, and an outstanding Central family. Folks inviting their 8-15. Dozens of rose bushes. Speaking of family…time together with my amazing wife and incredible sons. Just a few things.


I am thankful for a beautiful, loving wife and two great kids who love the Lord. I am also thankful for so many of God’s blessings and His faithfulness to supply all my needs throughout my life.


For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving… (1 Tim. 4:4 ESV)

I am thankful for the gift of life and new life

I am thankful for my beautiful wife and baby

I am thankful that God is always at work in my life and in the lives of the people around me

I am thankful for food and drink and good books!

I am thankful for friends that like to have fun and enjoy life

I am thankful for belonging to a church that relentlessly strives to honor Christ

I am thankful that God continues to reveal more and more of who He is as I study His Word


I am thankful for the technology that allows me to stay in touch with my family, especially during the holidays.

I am thankful for my friends and my church who have become my family.

I am thankful for hot coffee and warm fires…

Don’t let another moment go by without acknowledging what you’re thankful for! We have a BIG God, who has done…and will do…BIG things!

    I am thankful for the staff of our church and this includes the leaders. How they ask for God’s leadership and are obedient to that leadership. You all are in my prayers regularly. Also the spiritual growth I’ve experienced while a member of Central Christian.
