WELCOME TO CENTRAL!

(and when we say welcome, we really mean it!)

Central is a vibrant and inclusive family of faith. We are a people of God's extravagant welcome, insisting that Jesus never turned people away, so neither do we.  As a reflection of the teachings of Jesus Christ, we are an  Open and Affirming  congregation of the United Church of Christ, a denomination that says, 

"Our faith may be 2,000 years old, but our thinking isn't!"   

We come from all different backgrounds and different generations, we identify with different ethnicities and romantic orientations, we have different abilities and ideas, but we all strive to follow Jesus Christ together as a diverse and dynamic community of faith. Simply said, no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. 

We believe God is Still Speaking.

We never want to place a period where God has only placed a comma. We believe in a God that is not only still speaking, but still moving among us, empowering us to love mercy, act justly and live humbly. Therefore, as an extension of our faith, we are actively engaged in our community, living out Jesus’ gospel of justice, mercy, love and grace.
We are Many, Yet we Are One.
 

Our vision is to celebrate and continue to build Christ's universal Church.  Our congregation worships together, serves together, cares about others and is committed to loving all people. We aren’t perfect, but our goal is to challenge and enable each person to grow in faith as we journey together with God. Our goal is to also provide a variety of opportunities for worship, fellowship, learning, and service to the community.

We are energetic; we are growing and we invite you to grow with us. Whether you're a guest, a neighbor, seeking a church home, or just in town visiting, we extend our warm hospitality to you. So, take a moment to look over our website. Get to know us and we’ll see you Sunday!
