Our Plan Moving Forward

PDF
The City of Springfield has set new public gathering guidelines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Attached to this email is a letter from Central Christian that explains how we are planning  to move forward.  As everything seems to be fluid, this is not a final plan and as we have more information we will let everyone know.  We are constantly in conversation and thoughtful prayer over how to continue to be a faithful, warm, and vibrant community and church within Springfield.  Please keep checking our website and our Facebook page for more information.

Click on the letter to the left to read it in its entirety.

For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
