Times and Directions

Sunday morning is just a snapshot of what Central has to offer. Our morning services are 8:30am and 10:30am in the sanctuary and the 5:00pm service is in the chapel (on the second floor). Get full times & directions here...
 

What is the difference between the 2 morning services?

8:30am service: sample order of worship
The music in this service is led by our worship singers accompanied by piano, two acoustic guitars, bass guitar, and drums. We include a variety of styles of music including praise and worship songs, hyms and contemporary music. Our children's director, Mrs. Debbie, talks with the children at the children's message and Pastor Gary preaches his sermon. This service is smaller than our 10:30am tradition service.Everyone is encouraged to attend a Sunday School at 9:30am.
 
10:30am service: sample order of worship
The music in this service is led by our chancel choir accompanied by the organ. We sing from the hymnal a few times during the service. Our children's director, Mrs. Debbie, talks with the children at the children's message, and then 4-year-olds thru kindergarten proceed to children's church. Pastor Gary preaches his sermon to a larger congregation than at the 8:30am service.
 
Both services serve communion once a month and at special services. Everyone is welcome to take communion from the Lord's table.

We hope you come to church in whatever makes you feel comfortable. We care more about you and your relationship with Jesus then what you look like.
