This week we'll follow the Israelites as they grow thirsty in the wilderness and question God's presence. This timely passage invites us to look for God in those places that seem forsaken as we disentangle ourselves from systems of scarcity.
On Sunday, September 27th, Central Baptist will join other churches across Lexington for a “virtual” CROP walk. September is Hunger Action Month and the need to come together to fight hunger (even if apart) is more compelling NOW than ever. During this pandemic, 1 in 3 children in 7 Eastern KY counties served by God's Pantry Food Bank are food insecure! No child should worry when their next meal will be! The goal of the CROP Walk is to end hunger one step at a time around the block (through the work of God’s Pantry Food Bank) and around the world (through the work of the Church World Service). Please help us end hunger in our community by participating in this year’s CROP walk. Click here to join our team or donate.

Three new groups to help organize our ministries
This week we will think about courage and the courage it takes to wait. On the heels of the 50th Earth Day, we will also consider creation and our place in God's diverse and beloved community of life. Thanks to Lelia Midkiff for providing the beautiful watercolor above.
Normalcy seems to be an idea of the past. Why are we here and what are we to do? These questions are central to the biblical story as well as our current situation. This Sunday, we look back at the work of God through the people in exile. Their isolation and uncertainty are felt by us, and their hope for restoration can help us shape a promising future. Join us this week for a message from Charles Conkin.
Join us from your computers, tablets, phones, and televisions as we celebrate even in the midst of shadows. The image above is a painting by our own Charlotte Blaydes. She started painting during our watercolor workshop last fall and has already created this beautiful work. While we may be apart, we can still find little hopes and joys scattered about like a bright red cardinal or an evening stroll. This week during our prayer time, we'll invite our children to draw pictures of things they are grateful for.
