What’s Happening Now


Central Church Building Is Closed

Central has closed its campus during the Coronavirus health emergency.  The staff is working from home and available via email and voicemail. All on-site activities are cancelled until further notice. See below for worship information.

Holy Week Worship

This Sunday is Palm Sunday, and Central will worship at 10am on Hometowne TV in Summit, NJ,  and Facebook Live and our YouTube channel.  We hope you will join us!    See the Children’s Sermon materials and Sunday School lesson here. 

Our Easter service is on the same schedule next week and the same locations.

Weekdays at noon on Facebook Live is a devotional and prayers.

A Maundy Thursday Tenebrae will be shared on Facebook and our YouTube channel.

Help Feed Those in Need

Now is the time to be the church.  Small acts by individuals and families can collectively make a big difference.  As a church community we are committing to filling the Loaves and Fishes pantry for our vulnerable neighbors who have lost jobs and income during this time, and to our homeless neighbors who are particularly vulnerable.   Many of the organizations that make Bridges bag lunches (schools, youth groups, etc.) are not meeting, so the donation of bag lunches has dropped.  Family Promise continues to provide shelter and meals to families without permanent homes.

These are easy, actionable steps to take during Lent to share our love during this difficult time.

I have always seen the story of Holy Week to be a story filled with choices.

During the days that followed, there was the choice about whether or not to listen to Jesus as


It is 5 pm, and I just got back from walking my dog. We usually take walks at night, after dinner and, often, an evening meeting at church. There are no evening meetings at church these days, and our town has an 8 pm curfew. I do not know if that applies to walking your dog, but I figured I


The Bible, you no doubt have heard, has a lot to say about the danger of fear. It also has a lot to say about how faith empowers us to deal with fear. “Do not be afraid,” is the message of the angels on Christmas, on Easter morning. “Perfect love casts out fear” (I John 4:18). And yet, when you
