  • Central Needs Your Help!

    Several weeks ago a dear friend of Central, Mike Harmon, offered a matchng pledge of up to $10,000 to the Nurture Ministry of our church.  We have thus far received from our congregation $4,315.  We have a ways to go prior to the end of September.  Help us reach our goal of $10,000 in order that we may better care for persons of our church and community who are in need of this ministry.  Remember, every dollar received for this fund is equivalent to two dollars in matching funds from our benefactor.

    Thank you for your help!

    Pastor Tresco E. Shannon and Chairperson Sam Hart

    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.
