Tutors needed

to help children at Central City Elementary become fluent readers. 

Statistics show that children who are not reading at grade level by Grade 3

are more at risk for dropping out of school and other high risk behaviors. 

Tutors are needed to listen to children read. 

Contact the Pastor if willing to volunteer an hour a week during school hours.


Our Core Values

01)

WE BELIEVE IN THE TRIUNE GOD

God the Creator, Jesus the Christ, the sole Head of the church, and the Holy Spirit, who guides and brings about the creative and redemptive work of God in the world. 

02)

WE BELIEVE THAT EACH PERSON IS UNIQUE AND VALUABLE

Each person is a child of God, created in the image of God and created good.  That does not mean we are perfect.  We make mistakes and need support to be the people God created us to be - to let the past go and live into the future.  As much as God loves us as individuals, we are called into community to support one another and to be supported.   

03)

WE BELIEVE THAT EACH PERSON IS ON A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

and each of us is at a differet place on that journey.


Our Ministries

All Are Welcome!

We take that seriously and also like to have fun.  We celebrate extravagent welcome like Christ did. Where two or more are gathered God's presence is known.

Children and Youth Ministry

Kids are welcome to join in! We have a ton of fun stuff going on here. We get to learn about the life of Jesus and the Bible while often digging into some games and arts and crafts. Confirmation is the time our youth make a faith commitment and join the church.  Our High School Youth meet regularly.

Music Ministry

Music is important to us as we sing our faith.  Worship has a blended style with organ, key board, grand piano, guitar and drums.  We like to try different things.  If you have a favorite song of faith, let us know so we can learn it, too.
