Camp will be outdoors, and children and leaders will be placed in camp pods for the week. Campers and leaders will travel to different stations outside for stories, crafts, dancing and games. We can’t wait to see you!

Sign up to Help at Outdoor Worship Services

For every Sunday morning outdoor worship service, Central needs six volunteers – four to work the check-in process, one to assist with chairs and seating, and one to direct cars in the parking lot.  If you can help, please sign up for a shift HERE.

Connecting with Summit’s Seniors

Many of us are aware of the pandemic of loneliness that is so widespread in our community. Central is connecting with Vito Gallo to help fight this pandemic. If you or you kids would like to color pages, make cards or crafts, or write a note, we would love to pass them along to Vito Gallo Senior Center. To make a donation, just drop your cards and projects in the mail slot in the Maple Street door at the church. Focus: April- Easter, May- Mother’s and Father’s Day.
