What’s Happening Now At Central Presbyterian Church

Upcoming Worship

We invite you to attend worship in person in the Sanctuary  at 8:30 and 10am each Sunday.  This week, October 2nd, is World Communion Sunday, where Christians all over the world celebrate communion together.  We will also commission our Confirmation Class, and distribute Bibles to our third graders.

Broadcasting on HTTV and live streaming to YouTube at 10am has returned!

WAVE, Central’s contemporary worship service, returns on Sunday, October 2, at 5pm with a Blessing of the Animals.  Bring your appropriately restrained pet for a special blessing  and a free pet portrait!  WAVE is held outdoors when the weather permits, and in the air-conditioned auditorium when it doesn’t.  Fall dates for WAVE include: Oct 2 and 16, Nov 6 and 20, Dec 4.
