Welcome to the Central Bay District!

It’s funny to think that we are all involved in so many changes, and yet… I’m still typing on the same computer. Still driving to the same location, and still looking at the same stack of papers to be filed (really, does that pile ever go away??). However; there is a new name on the letterhead, a new sign on the door and the church list has changed dramatically. I believe this change is like a Mulligan. A do-over opportunity that doesn’t come around often, an  opportunity to make some changes. My prayer is that we all recognize the gift we have been offered and use it to honestly and faithfully work together in building disciples for Jesus Christ.
 
The Central Bay District Office is committed to building a stronger relationship with each local church in order to fulfill our mission.
To do that, we want you to know we are here for you! Stop into the office, go to district events, look for district sponsored gatherings. Make an effort to get connected, we are! We are committed to hold you in prayer. Our new web site (when up and running) will have a special place for prayer requests.
