God Says "You are Awesome!" And we think so too! Children's Church is offered during the 9:00 a.m service for children ages 4 - through 3rd grade. Children are invited to go to Children's Church after the Children's Moments in the worship service. In a unique worship space created just for them, children will be introduced to a child-friendly, discovery-oriented worship experience where they feel like they belong. With a Children's Church, we at Central are sending the message that we care enough about our children to have their own worship service. For more information, contact the church office.
