What to Expect


We understand that not everyone is ready to come back to church for in-person services. It may even be unwise for those with underlying health conditions or those in a vulnerable age group. There is no pressure and no judgment to anyone who isn't quite ready to come back. Our services will continue to stream at 10:15 am here on our website, on Facebook, and YouTube.

For those of you who are ready to return, we are following these guidelines:

  • We are socially distancing
  • Masks are recommended
  • All volunteers are required to wear masks while serving
  • Hand sanitizing stations are available
  • No coffee or water is available
  • Nursery limited to nursing mothers
  • We invite our families with small children to sit in our overflow area in the gym to allow for those who have a hard time paying attention or sitting still

If you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, runny nose, or sore throat, please stay home and join us digitally through our livestream. This will help us minimize the potential spread of illness.

Small groups, youth and children's ministry occurs through both small in-person gatherings where social distancing is practiced and/or zoom meetings.

We continue to monitor the effects of COVID-19 in our community and follow the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC, state and local officials.

Worship Service - 10:15 am

Central is a multi-generational church. In our worship services we include a variety of elements to help us focus on God. Elements such as singing a contemporary song or an old hymn, sharing in communion, praying, and engaging in a sermon from God's Word.

During the service, we have a nursery fully staffed by loving adults who enjoy caring for babies, crawlers and toddlers.

Part way through the service (Sept-May), we dismiss children ages 3 through the 5th grade to a special ministry just for them.

Equipping Hour - 9:00 am (Sept-May)

This hour is focused on Biblical education for all ages which includes specific teaching in the Old and New Testaments, and elective topics such as parenting and finances. At times, our classes will compliment a particular preaching series.

Whether you are a pre-schooler, in your 90's, or somewhere between, there is a group that would love to have you join with them. For those younger than 3, we have a wonderful nursery staffed by caring folks.
