OUR MISSION AT CENTRAL PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
By God’s grace and the leading of the Holy Spirit, Central Presbyterian Church seeks to
Engage one another in a transforming and worshipful relationship with Jesus Christ;
Equip disciples for Christian fellowship, growth, and service;
Extend Christ’s love to the world!
What’s Happening Now At Central Presbyterian Church
We invite you to attend worship in person in the Chapel at 8:30 and in the Sanctuary at 10am each Sunday.
WAVE, Central’s contemporary worship service, is held in the church auditorium. WAVE will meet on the first and third Sunday of each month at 5 pm – upcoming dates include December 17 when we have an old-fashioned Christmas carol sing-along.
The entire main floor of Central Church is handicapped accessible via the glass doors facing Elm Street (our main entrance). The Sanctuary is equipped with an audio-assist system for those with hearing difficulties.
Continuing through our Christmas Eve services on December 24, Central Closet will be collecting NEW CHILDREN’S warm hats, mittens/gloves, and scarves to be donated to El Centro for the children in the communities that they serve. At this special time of year, please help in sharing our many blessings with others. Christmas wrapped boxes for this special collection will be located at the Sanctuary entrance on Maple Street and at the top of the ramp past the Glass Hallway on the left where the Central Closet collection bin is usually located. Thank you for sharing God’s love at Christmas
