Sundays at Central
Sunday mornings are the central part of our life together. As Covid-19 protective measures are in place, we are practicing social distancing and wearing masks at all times while on campus. There is child care available at the 8:45 am and 10:55 am services. So that we can provide the best and safest experience for everyone, we ask that you sign up online (button on home page) to let us know each week which service you will attend.
During the altered schedule, in-person Bible study is available only for alphabetically-grouped students (one third each Sunday), though some other classes meet online.
The only in-person Bible Study class available as we gradually resume operations from the Covid-19 shelter in place is for students (limited to one third of the alphabet each Sunday). On Sunday morning, small groups gather for classes to study the Bible and apply it to everyday life. Some groups listen to a lecture from a teacher, while others tend toward wide-ranging discussion among the class members. In addition to Bible study, Sunday School provides a great opportunity to get to know your fellow church members.
There are groups for everyone from children to senior adults with nursery care for infants. If you’re not part of a Bible study group at Central, you should find one today.
The worship service at Central is traditional in format and takes place in our sanctuary. Services include a combination of music, readings, scripture, prayer, and a sermon from our pastor. The music tends toward hymns and traditional gospel songs, accompanied by pipe organ and piano.
Some would say that the Central worship service resembles a combination of elements from Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Episcopal traditions.
We welcome you whether you “dress up” for church or don’t. You will find, however, that most men choose to wear a tie, sport coat, or suit. Children tend to dress more casually.
