In a continued effort to provide information, encouragement and protection  to our church families and the families of Jefferson County, Center Hill will be hosting a presentation of Jefferson County’s Child Advocacy Center, on February 23 at 7:00 PM.  The presentation will be conducted by our own Pat Berger who is Jefferson County’s Victim/Witness Coordinator and a Child Forensic Interviewer.  She has worked with crime victims for 17 years and the past 8 of those years in Jefferson County as part of District Attorney Jeff Burkett’s office.   She has seen the heart breaking devastation physical & sexual abuse has on children, their families and the community.  Pat is committed to reaching out to child and adult victim’s of abuse with any and all support at her disposal.  Come and hear her heart and the commitment of the Jefferson County District Attorney’s office  to victims and to justice.   child_abuse

The entire community is invited to attend this meeting to learn first hand about Jefferson County’s Child Advocacy Center and it’s benefits to the children of this and surrounding counties.

We as Christ’s church in this community have a repsonsiblity not only to the spiritual welfare of those in our midst but also to meet the physical and emotional issues when they are evident to us.  Let it be said that Center Hill is a place of hope for all hurting people.  Remember Jesus’ own words in Matthew 25:40Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”

Strengthening our families

by on Feb.04, 2010, under General Posts

It is imperative that the local church strengthen it’s nuclear families if it is to accomplish the great commission of ‘making disciples’ first in Jerusalem and then in the uttermost parts of the world.  God has ordained the family as the primary agent responsible for the raising of children as the next generation of ‘Christ followers’.  This responsibility is not to be abdicated to the church.  More and more as a society we are relinquishing our right and responsibility as parents to the government.  But just as frightening and more concerning to me as a pastor is the fact that many Christian parents have resigned as the primary counselor and teacher of the precepts of God and allowed the local church to become the main tutor in their absence.  Deut 6:6-9 says it quite clearly ‘ And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.’

We at Center Hill are committed to strengthening the families and equipping them to become all that God has intended them to be.  To that end, we have on a regular basis, scheduled family events.  Events to supplement the Bible centered teaching in our Sunday School, and Awana.  Events which are Christ centered and family oriented.  Case in point, our recent church sled riding party.  What a great time.  Just check out the pics on ‘Our People’ page.

In the coming weeks, we will be sponsoring movie nights, scrapbooking parties, outdoor treks, and picnics as the weather warms.  It is our intent to teach and preach the Word of God in every avenue we are given and to make available events which allow families to nurture biblical parent and child relationships and educate parents in the knowledge of our Lord.  We will do what ever we can to outfit our families to raise children in the fear and admonition of the Lord.
