Central Church of Christ is a non-denominational, Bible believing church focused on ministry to the entire family. We are located in Griswold, Iowa, serving the area of the Griswold Community School District.


BIBLE SCHOOL

We have Sunday school classes for every age, including an adult class.  Join us Sunday morning at 9:00 AM for Sunday school.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

LORD’S CUPBOARD NEEDS

The Lord’s Cupboard needs toilet paper, canned tuna and chicken, canned fruits, Hamburger Helper type boxed meals, and brown paper bags.  When purchasing any of the listed items, please buy ‘a bunch’ of one type (corn, beans, etc) instead of one of each.  This aids in distribution.

The Night to Shine Guest Buddy training will be held Thursday, January 25 beginning at 7:00 PM.  If you are signed up to be a Guest Buddy this is a short, one hour, mandatory training.  Please attend.

VBS

VBS is six months away.  Please continue to pray for the students and staff that were involved last year as well as the pictures you may have.  Pray that we can teach when we think we are ‘Shipwrecked’, we can be rescued by Jesus.

 FRIDAY FOOD

Friday Food is child-friendly food sent home from school each Friday to help kids feed themselves over the weekend. 

Friday Food started the beginning of March as a joint venture between the Lord’s Cupboard and the Griswold Area Ministerial Association.  Food is gathered at the Lord’s Cupboard site, and then is sent home in a non-descript plastic sack with children from both Lewis and Elliot elementary schools.  By the end of the year, 27 children were receiving Friday Food.  Diane Rieken is currently the facilitator of this program.  Friday Food plans to begin again when school starts. 

How can you help?  We need funds and child-friendly foods.  If you can buy about 30 items of the same kind, each child will get the same.  We have had people under-write the cost of food for a week, and/or purchase things that everyone can use (single serve mac & cheese, fruit bowls, individual small cereal boxes, pop-top ravioli, non-perishable items, etc). 

If you’re not sure what to buy, please give Diane Rieken a call at 605-695-0652.  Diane also has a job with Cass Inc.  If she doesn’t answer, she will return your call.  Thanks so much for your assistance with this important ministry.  Jesus said that whatever we do for the least of these, we do for him.  Let’s bless a child today!
