Central Ministry Fair


As we return from the summer months and welcome in the fall season, we invite you to join us for a special coffee hour on the 6th floor following the morning service on Sunday, September 25th. We will also be hosting a ministry fair where all will have the opportunity to sign up for a community group, get involved in the ministries of Central, and learn more about the church and our outreach efforts to the city.

Special Lecture with Professor Albert J. Raboteau


Central invites you to join us on Thursday, September 29th, at 7:30pm for a special lecture with Professor Albert J. Raboteau. In light of the recent spate of violence across the world and continuing racial tension here in the US, Professor Raboteau will give a lecture on Christian resources for forgiveness and racial reconciliation entitled "American Prophets: Religious Radicals and Their Struggle for Social and Political Justice.” This talk will be followed by a moderated Q&A with Professor Eric Gregory.

 

 

Professor Raboteau has taught at Yale, Berkeley, and Harvard, and currently is the Henry W. Putnam Professor Emeritus of Religion at Princeton University. His written work includes Slave Religion: The 'Invisible Institution' in the Antebellum South and A Sorrowful Joy: a Spiritual Memoir. With Richard Alba and Josh DeWeind he co-edited Religion and Immigration in America: Comparative and Historical Perspectives.

 

Spread the word and join us for what will be a powerful and deeply important evening of discussion.

Reformed University Fellowship Reception


Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 22nd, at 7:00pm to celebrate the ministry of Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) at Columbia University.

 

Many within the Central community have been deeply impacted by the ministry of RUF, including our very own Pastor Jason Harris, who served as the RUF campus minister for 6 years at Northwestern University. For the last several years, Central has hosted an annual celebration to help spread the word about this ministry, which shares the same theological commitments and philosophy of ministry as our church. This year we are excited to again promote the good work of RUF and RUF International, which focuses on gospel ministry to international students.

 

Join us for a cocktail reception to learn more about the unique, strategic importance of RUF's ministry and about how you can support the work of this critical initiative at Columbia University.

Vocare: Seminars on the Gospel, Culture, and Vocation


Central’s Vocare explores the intersection of the gospel, culture, and vocation.  The Latin word "vocare" (pronounced vo-KAR-ay) means "to call" and is the root of the English word "vocation."  The purpose of these seminars is to equip us theologically and spiritually to live out our unique and distinctive callings as people who have been sent by God into the world.
 
Our Fall Vocare series will kick off on Sunday, September 11th at 10am with Joshua Yates of the Thriving Cities Project.
