Centennial Information and Updates
Friends, Grace and peace from my place of shelter to yours. I imagine we’re all a little anxious and stir crazy, but I hope that taking time to feed your soul helps keep your spirits up. To that end, we are embracing the digital age in a big way, hoping to keep the CCC family of faith connected and caring for one another. Here are a list of opportunities to engage in soul care. 1. Spiritual Sugar is a short devotional time everyday at 11am via Facebook Live. You can find it at www.facebook.com/centennialcc.org even if you don’t have a Facebook account.
3. Sunday Home “Churching” – Join us through Facebook Live on Sunday morning at 10:15am for a scaled down worship time. Feel free to bring your coffee and doughnuts with you. We’ll celebrate communion together by each setting out our own elements. These can be bread and juice if you like, but if Diet Coke and goldfish crackers are what you have, then that will work too. I’ll walk you through it on Sunday.
4. You can always relay your prayer needs to me though phone, text, email, FB messenger, smoke signals, owl post, etc. If these are shareable, let me know and I’ll list them in my morning Facebook Live devotional. You can also comment on these videos as you watch them.
5. We will also be posting resources of the day and written devotional material athttps://www.centennialcc.org Check in everyday for a new resource and devotion.
Blessings on your heads, hearts, and homes, Pastor Heather

Pritzker warned parents Thursday schools could remain closed beyond the end of the month
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker Friday ordered Illinois' 12 million residents to shelter in place order to fight the spread of COVID-19, making the Land of Lincoln the second state to do so. Pritzker told a press conference, flanked by Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, the order took effect Saturday, March 21 at 5 p.m. CDT through April 7. California Gov. Gavin Newsom took similar action Thursday. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered all nonessential businesses to shut down and criticized businesses that failed to heed the request, saying this is not "life as usual."
Under Pritzker's order, Illinois residents will need to stay in their home unless there is an “essential reason” to go out. These “reasons” can include work, medical appointments, the need for groceries, medicine or gasoline, and to walk the dog. He said all nonessential businesses should cease operations. No roads were to be closed after the order goes into effect.
