Men's Bible Study & Fellowship

Charlotte Campus, Men
Friday, Sep 30, 2016 6:30 am - 7:30 am
Fridays, September 9-November 18
6:30am-7:30am
Location: Varsity Building Cafe

The books of Psalms and Proverbs are considered to be part of the "wisdom literature" of the Bible. The evidence of their value is seen in how, though they were written thousands of years ago, the words are as relevant and life-changing today as they were back then.

We will open these books together and see how they change, impact and guide us through life, and lead us to the author of life - Jesus! We hope you'll get up early and join us for some great study, discussion and fellowship.

Did you know that tucked within the first seven verses of the book of Ruth, people’s lives are divided by subtraction? A family of four is reduced when a husband and two sons die, leaving one woman with zero hope.

That woman is Naomi, the suddenly single woman whose setback sets up an equation that adds up to one of the most beautiful, comeback love stories of all time!

If you could benefit from the encouragement of a group of women whose hearts are set on worship, prayer and studying the Word of God together through the direction of the Holy Spirit, please join us for our first gathering.

Acts: Witnesses, Empowered by His Spirit

Adult Class, Charlotte Campus
Monday, Oct 03, 2016 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Mondays, September 12-October 31
Location: Family Life Center Room 106
Online cost: $20.66 (Precept Upon Precept Workbook); $16.58 (In & Out Workbook)
Leaders: Ed and Gail Johnson

In the Book of Acts (chapters 1-12), Luke recorded what happened after Jesus’ ascension to the Father. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit, empowering the apostles to testify to the power of God in salvation and in living every day for the gospel.

This inductive study shows how God spread the gospel through witnesses of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and how you, too, can witness to others. Stand in awe of the power of God in the believers in Acts. This same power helps you endure persecution and suffering for the cause of Christ, and embrace His power in your life.

Be encouraged by the results of the faithful servants in Acts bringing forth truth in a dark world, and watch as the early church grows numerically, geographically and culturally.

Mondays, September 12-October 31
Location: Family Life Center Room 105

We've been trying to fix this feeling with everything - but God - but He has a plan for these spaces inside us.

Isn’t it time you learn the joy of walking in power, love and a sound mind in all aspects of your life?

Thursday, Oct 13, 2016 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Thursdays, September 22-November 10
Located in FLC Room 109

For the places we get stuck, there's a God who sets us free. Allow Him into the inner struggles of your heart.

Do you feel stuck? So many of us live stuck - stuck feeling numb, stuck pursuing more stuff to make us happy. These stuck places often go unattended inside of us, and they're shaping our lives more than we like to think.

We've been trying to fix this feeling with everything - but God - but He has a plan for these spaces inside us.

Men's Bible Study & Fellowship

Charlotte Campus, Men
Friday, Oct 14, 2016 6:30 am - 7:30 am
Fridays, September 9-November 18
6:30am-7:30am
Location: Varsity Building Cafe

The books of Psalms and Proverbs are considered to be part of the "wisdom literature" of the Bible. The evidence of their value is seen in how, though they were written thousands of years ago, the words are as relevant and life-changing today as they were back then.

We will open these books together and see how they change, impact and guide us through life, and lead us to the author of life - Jesus! We hope you'll get up early and join us for some great study, discussion and fellowship.

God wants us to find fullness in Him, not the things of this world. We will do this by trying to understand the depth of His love for us, which comes by realizing the importance of reading His Word, along with prayer, worship and knowing the Holy Spirit in all His fullness so that we experience a deeper, richer relationship with Christ. As we study together, our ultimate goal is to be filled to where we are overflowing with Christ where He is seen in us. 

Central is also offering a Women of Grace class on Wednesdays, beginning September 14. Click HERE for more information.

Sunday, Oct 23, 2016 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Sundays, October 2-November 20 (except October 16)
Location: FLC Room 109

Did you know that tucked within the first seven verses of the book of Ruth, people’s lives are divided by subtraction? A family of four is reduced when a husband and two sons die, leaving one woman with zero hope.

That woman is Naomi, the suddenly single woman whose setback sets up an equation that adds up to one of the most beautiful, comeback love stories of all time!

If you could benefit from the encouragement of a group of women whose hearts are set on worship, prayer and studying the Word of God together through the direction of the Holy Spirit, please join us for our first gathering.

Genius of Generosity (Couples)

Charlotte Campus, Couples
Sunday, Oct 23, 2016 10:15 am - 11:45 am
Sundays, October 23-November 13
Located in FLC 106
Leaders: Joe & Alison Cherry
Cost: $10. Online price is an additional $.46. 

The "secrets" to being financially savvy are all around us. So the question is, "What is so genius about generosity?" After all, our world celebrates people who have learned how to have it all - not those who've learned to give it all away.

The Bible teaches that the wisest thing we can do with our resources is learn to invest them in His Kingdom, and that becoming a generous person is the smartest way to prepare for an eternal future.

This study for couples offers fresh, thought-provoking concepts about generosity. Don't be satisfied with earthly stock options and interest rates; learn the genius of generosity and expand your portfolio of earthly rewards!

20 Somethings For Women

Charlotte Campus, Women
Thursday, Nov 03, 2016 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Thursdays, September 22-November 10
Located in FLC Room 109

For the places we get stuck, there's a God who sets us free. Allow Him into the inner struggles of your heart.

Do you feel stuck? So many of us live stuck - stuck feeling numb, stuck pursuing more stuff to make us happy. These stuck places often go unattended inside of us, and they're shaping our lives more than we like to think.

We've been trying to fix this feeling with everything - but God - but He has a plan for these spaces inside us.

In times like this it always takes faith, but sometimes it also takes simple courage to stay, wait or even leave.

About Our Speaker

We’ll meet together once a month on Sunday mornings from 9-10am in the Varsity Café.

We hope you’ll join us and see how God will inspire, encourage and strengthen us all as we gather on these Sundays. There is much in store for you … including a great light breakfast.

Tuesday, Nov 15, 2016 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Online ticket price: $10.46 (meal included, purchase by November 6)

Each year before the incredible business of the holidays consumes us, we reach out to help those in need. Our focus this year is the persecuted church. The year 2015 was one of the worst in several centuries for Christian persecution around the globe.

From front page headlines of mass killings by Muslim extremists, to a father imprisoned and tortured in Russia, to a young woman missing without a trace, tragedy too often results from proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Members of Central will share their experiences from their native countries. We will conclude the night with a stirring video and prayer, and we'll receive an offering for persecuted Christians around the world.

Women of Grace, formerly known as Women of the Word, will continue the same Anne Graham Lotz format as we study "Experiencing the Fullness of God." God wants us to find fullness in Him, not the things of this world. We will do this by trying to understand the depth of His love for us, which comes by realizing the importance of reading His Word, along with prayer, worship and knowing the Holy Spirit in all His fullness so that we experience a deeper, richer relationship with Christ. As we study together, our ultimate goal is to be filled to where we are overflowing with Christ where He is seen in us.

This is a monthly gathering of women with the purpose of connecting in three ways:

1) Social Connection – A grown-up tea party! A place where women can talk, laugh and enjoy just being together while also enjoying yummy drinks and treats.

2) Deeper Connection – Storytelling! One woman each month will share her personal story with the group.

3) Spiritual Connection – Teacup swap! Each woman will bring a teacup and will place a personal prayer request inside of it. At the end of the evening, every woman will take home someone else’s teacup and prayer request and will pray for that woman over the next month.

Tuesdays, September 13-November 15 & January 10-March 14, 2017
Location: Family Life Center Seminar Room
Cost: $40. Online price is an additional $1.06. 
Instructor: Karen Shue

Women of Grace, formerly known as Women of the Word, will continue the same Anne Graham Lotz format as we study "Experiencing the Fullness of God." God wants us to find fullness in Him, not the things of this world. We will do this by trying to understand the depth of His love for us, which comes by realizing the importance of reading His Word, along with prayer, worship and knowing the Holy Spirit in all His fullness so that we experience a deeper, richer relationship with Christ. As we study together, our ultimate goal is to be filled to where we are overflowing with Christ where He is seen in us. 

Central is also offering a Women of Grace class on Wednesdays, beginning September 14. Click HERE for more information.

Wednesdays: September 21, October 19, November 16, January 18, February 15, March 15, April 19 and May 17

Come empty, be filled … with food, fun, fellowship and faith.

To help women connect in a deeper way with God, each other, and themselves (see Matthew 22:37-39).

What is Teacups?

This is a monthly gathering of women with the purpose of connecting in three ways:

1) Social Connection – A grown-up tea party! A place where women can talk, laugh and enjoy just being together while also enjoying yummy drinks and treats.

2) Deeper Connection – Storytelling! One woman each month will share her personal story with the group.

3) Spiritual Connection – Teacup swap! Each woman will bring a teacup and will place a personal prayer request inside of it. At the end of the evening, every woman will take home someone else’s teacup and prayer request and will pray for that woman over the next month.

If you would like to take part, please register and you will be contacted by a teacup ministry leader.

Couples Connect

Adult Class, Charlotte Campus, Couples, Marriage Enrichment
Sunday, Oct 08, 2017 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Second Sundays of the month, 9-10am
Location: Varsity Building Cafe

There’s a buzz around Central’s Charlotte campus about a brand new opportunity for people just like you! Couples Connect is designed to provide a forum where young families (20s & 30s is the guideline, not the rule) can connect and grow together in Christ. We’ll meet together once a month on Sunday mornings from 9-10am in the Varsity Café.

We hope you’ll join us and see how God will inspire, encourage and strengthen us all as we gather on these Sundays. There is much in store for you … including a great light breakfast. Couples with children, you can drop them off at the nursery or their respective CSM venues before coming to Couples Connect. CSM workers will be aware that children may be dropped off after the typical 8:30 starting time.

Oh, one more thing: Go ahead and invite other young couples you may know to join us! We can’t wait to see you there!
