You Can belong here.

We have a simple philosophy here at Central City. It's in response to a lot of churches that we grew up in. You see, in church we were always expected to learn first how to behave, then what to believe, and—if we got those things right—we could belong.

At Central City, we flip the script.

We want people to know they belong here first and foremost. It's in the midst of belonging that we learn what it means to believe and behave

What should I expect?
To be welcomed at the front door and invited to join in song with the congregation. There will be updates on what's happening in our community, as well as the opening up of Scripture and a time of teaching from one of our pastors. 

Where should I sit?
Wherever feels most comfortable. Some of us prefer to sit near the front, while others prefer the back. 

What should I wear?
Whatever makes you feel comfortable. Our leaders are usually dressed casually in a t-shirt and jeans. Feel free to dress up if you'd like!

Is their child care?
Yes! We have a children's ministry that your kids will love! 

Can I bring my child to service with me?
Yes! We love having children take part in our service. Upon arrival, you can register your child and then either take them directly to City Kids or have them join you for the first half of our service. If they join you for the service there will be a time after our announcements for parents to take their kids to children's church if they want. We love having kids in worship, but also understand if you just need a break for you to spend with God!

We worship with contemporary Christian music, updated hymns, as well as original songs. Check out our playlist on Spotify here.
