The 5th Quarter

The 5th Quarter
C. Hayden 8-12-18

Next month, Central Christian Church will be embarking on a new journey as we host an event known as the “5th Quarter”.   This event is a part of a week long event titled “Marxed” where teens come together for a time of food, fun, fellowship and frivolity all within an atmosphere of Christian learning, relationship building and worship.  The first night (Friday) will be at Central Christian with subsequent activities on Saturday and Sunday at Crestview Middle School.  The 5th Quarter derives its name as a play on the Huntington North football game also taking place that evening.  As you probably know, football games are broken up into 4 quarters of play.  Thusly, the 5th Quarter is after the game and will be held Friday night on Central Christian Church grounds and in the building in conjunction with the High School and several other Church families.  We will, with other churches, being providing food, inflatables along with a variety of activities, along with live music as a precursor to the whole Marxed weekend.  It is sure to be a wonderful opportunity to connect with many of our area youth and become a part of the entire cities larger effort to minister to the emotional and spiritual needs of teens.  If you want to help be a part of this groundbreaking, multi-church and High school effort, email Pastor Chris at or call Ron Fusselman.

The Scriptures say this in Mark chapter 6, 35 “When the day was now far spent, His disciples came to Him and said, ‘This is a deserted place, and already the hour is late. 36 Send them away, that they may go into the surrounding country and villages and buy themselves bread; for they have nothing to eat.’ 37 But He answered and said to them, ‘You give them something to eat.’”  This is our time to feed the youth in Huntington, not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well.  Please keep this effort in prayer and pray how you may be able to be a part of what God wants to do at Central Christian Church and Huntington County wide as well.  If you would like to donate to this effort financially, feel free to do so as we will need some equipment purchases (Call Pastor Chris for details 260-388-4508) to make this event a quality outreach to our Junior and Senior High Youth.

Be blessed even more and have a wonderful week and thank you for all you do for God’s Kingdom!!

Pastor Chris
