The Outlook Central Presbyterian Church 402 N College Street Waxahachie, TX 75165 Summer time. The sun just seems to hang in the sky, at midpoint, for hours on end, and slowly begins its decent to the western horizon. School is out and just like that summer is here! Camps, vacations, sleeping in, swimming, napping, reading books, snow cones….these are a few of my favorite things about summer. Long lazy days that seems to never end and turn into evenings full of fire flies, cicadas and if you’re lucky shooting stars darting across the vast Texas sky! I love summer, always have. Growing up in East Texas summer meant three things: 1. Working the vegetable garden; planting, weeding, picking, washing and sorting tomatoes, cucumbers, cantaloupes and watermelons. This resulted in an awesome farmer’s tan and a love for growing things! 2. Riding my bike for hours on end (the days I was not working the garden that is!). Riding up and down black top roads barefoot, stubbing my toe more times than I care to remember! Also I had more than one accident flying over my handle bars while racing downhill at top speed and I have a couple of scars to prove it. 3. And lastly it meant Vacation Bible School. It was literally my favorite time of summer! All our VBS’ were pretty much the same. Every year we would march into our small country church singing “Onward Christian Soldiers” carrying the Christian flag. And boy were you excited when you were the one chosen to carry the flag! It was pretty heavy for a scrawny country girl, but I did it…several times. Proudly carrying it to the front of the church while Ms. Sharon banged out the tune on the piano and about 20 kids (mostly my cousins) sang the words by heart. After this we would usually sing “Deep and Wide” and “This Little Light of Mine” – honestly it never got old! We would go to our rooms where we learned about God, talked about Bible stories like Noah’s Ark, Jonah and the Whale, Jesus walking on water and other miracles. It was the same stories, year after year. We always had a couple of crafts; they mostly included popsicle sticks, old cigar boxes and dried macaroni noodles. An outdoor game of Red Rover was always in order and then we would run up to the kitchen window, where my mom would be handing out popsicles and a cookie. With sticky hands, and popsicle juice running down our faces, we would laugh and play the rest of the morning until it was time to return home from VBS, eager for the next day to get here so we could do it all over again! These are the days of my childhood, snippets of what it looked like to be a country girl in east Texas in the 70’s. I can literally close my eyes and hear the sounds, see the sights and smell fresh watermelon. It takes me back to a place where summer, family and church all tangled up together and VBS was the highlight of the summer. Times have changed, I’m no longer a scrawny country girl, I’m a big city girl living here in Waxahachie! Still working the dirt, but now I grow flowers instead of watermelons – I prefer to buy mine at the local Farmer’s Market. Instead of riding a bike uphill and down, you’ll often times find me using the wheels God gave me and walking the neighborhood with Karl. But VBS is still the highlight of my summer, and I’m especially excited about VBS this year. Our theme is “Mighty Fortress” and we’ll learn together that God is our refuge and strength. One of my favorite things about VBS this year is the music. The music takes a few old familiar hymns “A Mighty Fortress is our God” and “Crown Him with Many Crowns” and puts a slightly different beat to them. VBS will be June 19-22, from 5:30 to 8:00, and EVERYONE is invited. We’ll start with dinner for all and then an opening ceremony. Pastor Matt will lead the adult Bible study and we have great volunteers ready to lead the kids! So you adults who long for your childhood summers where VBS probably played a big part, you get to come and be a part too. Make VBS a highlight for your family and friends and remember we’re never too old to laugh and play and end the day with a little popsicle juice running down our face!

  • 3rd Semi-Regular

    Men's Fellowship Breakfast, BBQ

    and Fishing Tournament

    Saturday, June 10th - 8:00am

    Yes, its been a couple of years, but thats why we call it semi-regular. On Saturday

    morning, June 10th, at 8am, the Men's Fellowship will once again gather at the Rutan house at 3128 Clover Ln (off Butcher Rd, near Shackelford Elementary) to throw on

    several briskets and pork butts in preparation for the all-Church BBQ.

    Breakfast will be prepared outdoors on the flat top, with plenty of healthy offerings

    (healthy for the soul, anyway). After a short devotional and several stories, we will disperse, only to return in that late afternoon to fish and take the meat off the pit.

    At 4:00 pm, everyone is invited to come try their luck in the pond and see what they can hook, or at least claim to hook. Jaron Curry actually claims to have hooked a bass

    at the pond last weekend that tested his skills and jumped out of the water and off his hook. Lets see if anyone can capture that elusive fish. There are plenty of small catfish

    and bluegill to keep your line active.

    Please feel free to bring your kids, grandkids, or anyone you want to enjoy to an afternoon of fun and fellowship with. If you dont have a pole, we have several for you.

    Just bring your sun screen, favorite beverages and a bucket full of smiles. There will be trophies awarded (past tournaments have honored Mia and Ben for the biggest fish and

    Karl for the best dressed). You never know what trophies will show up each year, so come give us a reason to celebrate you.

    Guys, if you havent been to one of these breakfasts, or if it has been a while, please come join in the fun! We hope you will join us. Please contact Brent Rutan (972-923-

    0588) or Mike Tull (972-938-1020) with any questions.

    children off the streets of Port-au-Prince, conducting a VBS for the children, and completing some painting projects in the present facility. Please spread the word among family and community members about the Mission trip and the fundraiser, and pray for our team as we attempt to add our efforts to this God led project.

    Marthas

    Submitted by Priscilla Clore May 2017

    The Marthas small group met Saturday, May 13h at 8:30 a.m. in the parlor at CPC for breakfast hosted by Lynn

    Stockman and Annette Goss via Letitia. The meditation was taken from a new book, Behold the Lilies by H. Paul

    Santmire. After the opening prayer, we began our planning session.

    Letitia reported on the banner project. The example is now available, so we are ready to present our plan for approval

    in the near future.

    Lynn reported on the cookbook project, showing examples of the entry page online or hard copy, the detailed

    brochure from the company, and a sample cookbook. We hope to include recipes from present and past members,

    especially the saints no longer with us. Funding for the cookbook may be available from an undesignated memorial

    fund for the printing with the expense paid back from sales if needed. Priscilla will check with Finance. This project of

    the Marthas will be a fundraiser for the Building Restoration Fund. We hope to publish and have for sale by the April

    2019 anniversary celebration of the present church building.

    The Marthas will host (serve and clean up) the meals for the June 19-22 Vacation Bible School at CPC which will be

    an evening all-generation event with dinner at 5:30 pm. We plan the following menus:

    Monday Hot dogs Mary Jo (Tommy)

    Tuesday Tacos Letitia

    Wednesday Sloppy Joes Arlene

    Thursday Pizza Letitia will order

    We agreed to take a break in Juneno meeting June 10thand return in July, rested and ready for the rest of the

    year.

    We closed the meeting with prayer, and began our morning project-soup!

  • Music Notes

    Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing.

    Psalm 100

    June, 2017

    As we reflect on the glory of Easter and look forward to Pentecost, we are reminded these are the real celebrations of our Christian faith. Jesus resurrection and the arrival of the Holy Spirit. Reflect on the triune

    God we worship. May we always join in worship with that Lord.

    I want to thank Leah Kelso for sharing her Wedgeworth choir with us. That was certainly a wonderful

    experience. And thank you Denise for accompanying them.

    This is a busy time of the year as the school year draws to a close and we head into summer. In spite of the recent cool weather, we know what to expect. That being said, the choir is shedding our robes for the summer starting with the Memorial Day weekend. The lack of air circulating in the loft is mighty

    uncomfortable in the heat of summer.

    The choir will finish this choral season on Trinity Sunday, June 11. We will break from rehearsing until July

    19, but will remain in the loft to lead in worship each Sunday.

    See you Sunday.

    Michael

    Love measures our stature: the more we love, the bigger we are.

    Surplus church pews, doors and windows available Submitted by Mike Tull

    Building and Grounds has a few church pews, doors and windows (stored over

    10 years) for which we have no use. These are available to church members for

    a donation to Central Presbyterian. These items are stored in Brent Rutans

    barn and need to be removed. Anyone interested please contact Mike Tull and

    you may see these on Saturday, June 10, 9:00 A.M. at the Rutan Home, 3128

    Clover Lane, Waxahachie, TX. Any funds received will go to the church. Items

    not provisioned will be sent for sale on consignment. Please contact Mike Tull,

  • Tony, Darcus, Aubrey and Katy Drollinger, New Members of CPC

    Waxahachie people are exceptionally nice. explained Tony Drollinger. We think of that as an outstanding feature of the city. When Tony and Darcus and their daughters, Aubrey and Katy, moved to a new home near Grandview, they found that driving to Waxahachie was now easier. They decided to visit several churches here and look for a church home. But they changed their plans when they were warmly greeted at Central Presbyterian and made to feel welcome right away. Although they live busy lives, they love the coming here for the worship and the fellowship with others in the church.

    Darcus is the rancher of the family. She raises sheep, goats, and dogs, and is training a herding dog, as well as a livestock guard dog. Tony is the executive director of finance of Arlington ISD, and spends a lot of time on the road.

    Their daughter Aubrey graduated from a program in Eastern New Mexico University in 2010. She often does childcare in the nursery on Sundays and really enjoys the children, but sometimes has to miss church because of her work schedule. Katy, a junior in high school in Grandview, loves to read and play the piano, and is especially interested in history and genealogy. She is already thinking about college, since she will be a senior next year. Katy is the champion for all 3A schools in Texas in UIL Current Events. Tony and Darcus also have an older daughter, Ashton, who lives with her husband, John, their granddaughter, Addison, 6, and new grandson, Latham, 8 months, near Texas A&M.

    Tony likes participating in the worship service. He finds Rev. Currys sermons challenging, motivating, and well written, and often listens to them again on You Tube. He was very involved in their previous church, and was ordained as an elder there. He hopes some day to have more time to pursue his interests here. Katy also likes the worship and being here in the church.

    The family agreed, Tony said, that The Youth Service, on April 30, was, of the many similar services they have attended, the most well organized, spiritually meaningful, phenomenal service they have ever attended. They also appreciate the many other ministries that are a part of Central Presbyterian Church. We shared sadness over the fact that the current PCHAS homes for children will be leaving, and wish them well in their new home. But we also agree that there will be new and worthwhile opportunities for service with the new ministry to single mothers and their children as well as the many other activities happening through the church. We are very happy to welcome the Drollinger family as a part of our Central Presbyterian Church community.

    Pre-Haiti Mission Trip Dinner

    On Sunday, June 25 at 5:00 PM, the LOPER's are hosting a pre-Haiti mission trip dinner

    at their home. Anyone who has been on a mission trip or would like to know more about this effort

    is invited to attend. Please call Cheryl at 214-533-6854 for more information.

  • My Little Pantry Submitted by: Patty Dickerson

    What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food,

    and one of you says to them, Go in peace, be warmed and filled, without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

    But someone will say, You have faith and I have works. Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

    James 2:14-18.

    My Little Pantry is open!

    Thanks to Jim and Karl Goss and the Second Saturday mission team for building and installing our newest neighborhood ministry!

    We talked about occasional maintenance or repair needs

    senior members of our congregation have around the

    house or yard and right away, the Second Saturday Ser-

    vice ministry team stepped up to offer helping hands.

    Please call me at (972-217-5956) or email me

    ([email protected]) with a list of chores you need

    help with to get on their schedule. A representative from

    that group will contact you to set up a date. All are

    welcome to participate in this service opportunity and meet

    some very special members of our church.

    Please use the bins for plastic and cans downstairs in the undercroft. We recycle paper in the church office and bulle-tins and hand-outs after services in the bin on the front pew.

    Also, this is a good time to clean out at home - recycle cloth-ing, shoes and household items in the blue bin across the street from the office. CPC receives $.12/pound and the items go to needy families around the Metroplex. Too many toys after Christmas? Share with others by recycling at CPC!

    Remember your children's book donations, too. There's a donation box in the cottage. We support four Little Libraries around town. Thanks for all your efforts to care for our earth.

    CPC Recycles! Gathering Music

    Some of you may be wondering about the Gathering

    Music, why are we doing this? The purpose of the

    Gathering Music is to begin to settle our minds from

    our busy lives, the hectic pace we set during our

    week, to shut out everything else and to follow the

    Psalmists words, Be still and know that I am God.

    You may have found it hard to focus your thoughts

    and attention to the service when we are still in high

    gear, I know I have. Gathering Music, as it is

    intended, allows us an opportunity to prepare our

    hearts for worship.

    To continue our tradition of being a friendly church,

    we have a Coffee Fellowship in the Parlor each

    Sunday morning from 10:35 until 10:50. This gives us

    a chance to meet our visitors ,see our friends and

    share some fellowship over coffee. After we visit, then

    we can enter the sanctuary and let the Gathering

    Music calm our hearts for worship.

    Worship Ministry Team Chairman
