We strive to meet the spiritual needs of people where they are, by building a respectful , loving and supportive community. We invite you to be a part of our joyful church gathering. Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere in a traditional setting.
At Central we believe that everyone should feel as comfortable at the church they attend as they do in their everyday shoes. However, we are all individuals and "one size does not fit all" Every congregation has it's own personality and dynamics. The one you choose should fit your needs and lifestyle.
For instance, Central folk are big on music, community outreach, faith and sharing our facilities. We believe in using and sharing our building not only on Sunday but every day of the week.
Empowered by the spirit, we build a caring community for all people. To grow in faith through the good news of Jesus, to celebrate God's presence, to love joyfully and to provide help and hope.
