What’s Happening Now At Central Presbyterian Church

Upcoming Worship


Central will not hold any in person worship services until February 13, 2022.  This date is subject to change.  All other in person activities previously scheduled are also suspended. We invite you to join us virtually for worship from our Sanctuary  Sundays at 10 am. You will find the service broadcast on HTTV, and live streamed on our Facebook page. A recording of the service will be posted to our YouTube channel later in the day.

This is not the turn of events that any of us wanted to see. And yet, our commitment over the course of the past two years has been to act in ways that prioritized the health and safety of everyone. We will continue to monitor the situation, consulting with the schools, other congregations, and public health officials as we continue to try to navigate through these unprecedented times.

Central's policy for in-person gathering:

  1. For groups whose members are all eligible to be vaccinated against COVID, full vaccination, including boosters (as you become eligible), are required for everyone meeting in person.
  2. For groups whose member are not all eligible to be vaccinated against COVID, masks for those over 2 years old and social distancing are required for everyone attending in person regardless of vaccination status. This would include, at the present time, all public worship services.

 No refreshments are allowed to be consumed during group gatherings inside the building.

What Christmas Is All About

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is watching the old television special, “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” I love how the chaotic commercialism of Christmas preparations give way to that moment when Charlie Brown screams out the question, “Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?” And Linus takes center stage, and he simply …

Our Thanksgiving is going to be a bit different this year. While we plan to visit our son in California, we will not be having a large gathering. With COVID-19 still lurking out there, some precautions still seem to be in order. And yet, compared to last Thanksgiving, this one promises to be so much …
