Nervous about visiting?

Don't be. This page will let you know what to expect as a visitor of Central Church. And if you are still hesitant, please visit the contact page and let  us know any questions or concerns that you may have.

What should I wear?


Come as you are! That means whatever you feel comfortable in. We have members that worship in 3 piece suits or a nice dress, but we also have members that worship in shorts and a t-shirt. It is not about how you dress or how good you look, it is all about worshiping God.

What are the service times?

Sunday morning services begin at 9:30A, Class roughly begins at 11:30A. Sunday evening services vary, but class at Central starts at 5:30P. Wednesday evening dinner is at 6:00P and class is at 6:30P.

Where should I park?

Central has a main parking lot on the North side of the building. That is ample parking, but there is reserve parking on the South side of the building as well.

What activities are there for my kids?

During worship we have a nursery available for babies. During the lesson we have children's worship, this is for kids up through 6th grade. Although this is in no way mandatory. If you would like, your kids can stay with you throughout the service. After worship we have classes for all age groups.

Is there food or drink available?

We have coffee and water available before worship and class. We also have donuts available after worship.

Am I expected to put money in the offering plate?

How do I get to Central Church?

Weekly offerings is how Central is able to continue servicing the community. As a member we encourage tithing, but as a visitor you are welcome to just let the tray pass you by. We do not expect you to give.
