What to Expect
Sunday mornings are casual and contemporary. Stop by the Welcome Desk for a small gift for our first time guests.
Service begins with a welcome from Pastor Carl and a few announcements. Worship begins with our praise band leading several songs One of our traditions is to join in communion each Sunday, all who trust in Jesus are invited to participate. The message is usually 25-35 minutes long and after a closing song and prayer, the pastor will be at the sanctuary door if you’d like to meet him.
We encourage you to share with us those times in your life when you need someone to walk along side you. Fill out a Prayer and Praise card or you can contact the office 937.390.2424. To be on the prayer list fill out a Prayer List card and you will receive weekly prayer updates.
Children are our future. Here at Central we value children and families. It’s our vision to be a place where children and youth will come to personally know and experience Christ’s love and truth, and to be equipped to serve Him in our community. Our nursery, toddlers, pre-school, and K-3 rooms open at 10:15am. 4th-6th grade children stay with their parents in the sanctuary and dismissed before sermon.
