To our Central family,
Words cannot adequately express our appreciation of your outpouring of love shown during the home-going of our loved one and Central's last "Storyteller", who on Easter Sunday, 1929, walked from the Central Avenue Church to Central's new church at its current location. We are blessed to have such a loving and caring church family. Your acts of kindness will never be forgotten. God bless you.
The family of Mrs. Nancy Grissom Johnson
Remember to reach out to the members in our Central family. You can send a text, email, mail a card or call. Include our new members, the sick and shut in members, isolated members and any who the Spirit tells you needs a voice of love and hope during this time.
