The Drama Club has been meeting at Central throughout the school year under the direction of Lia Wallace from the American Shakespeare Center. The Drama Club has been diligently preparing material for their performance on Sunday, April 22 at 5 PM. The performance will take place at the Blackfriars Playhouse located at 10 S. Market Street, and is part of the Shakespeare’s Birthday Party celebration hosted by the ASC. There will also be activity booths, cake, and a bouncy house. The event will run from 4:30-6 PM. Come out for an afternoon of fun for the whole family and support two of our very own Centralites, Betsy Gutshall & Kainoa Peters, as they share their performance in the Playhouse.
A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the special Easter Offering. Together we collected $2,271 in total! That money will be used to support Valley Supportive Housing in the Staunton area and UMCOR relief on a global level.
Central UMC is closed today due to snow/freezing rain mix. Soup lunch will be next Sunday.
A team of 13 hard workers from Central spent a week, August 15-20, rebuilding homes for victims of the February tornado which struck Waverly, VA. The team did jobs such as re-roofing, soffit repair, and siding work on two houses.
