Deliberately Diverse & Fully Inclusive

We seek to be a deliberately diverse community of faith—our strength grows in proportion to the diversity of the voices in our midst. Whether you've been a part of a church for 70 years, or you've never set foot in one, we welcome your voice, your questions, and your faith. Straight, gay, single, married, and all who refuse to be classified are welcome at Central.

2016 Lenten Small Group Study

One Anothering logo
February 21 – March 20 — 9:30 – 10:45 am
One Anothering, by Richard C. Meyer

CPC continues to grow.  God’s grace is amazing!  We’re 424 members now!  What a gift!  And what a challenging opportunity we have!  Our five-week 2016 Lenten topic, “One Anothering,” will challenge us to grow not just outward in numbers but deeper,  too– in getting to know each other, deepening our spiritual connection with God and each other.

Our Lenten book, One Anothering, is by Richard C. Meyer, a Presbyterian Pastor who has much experience with encouraging congregations to build spiritual community in small groups.  The book is a quick read: each chapter provides illustrations and exercises based on one of the many “one another” passages in the Bible.  “Get to know one another” isn’t one of those passages, but CPC is full of people worth one-anothering!

During our present time of growth and transition, Meyer’s book invites us to strengthen the webs of connection between the diverse and inclusive folks who make up the beloved community here on the corner of 8th and Brazos.
Books will be available for $12.00 (not available on Kindle)
Childcare will be provided.

Session Makes Decision Regarding Guns at CPC

At a meeting on this past Monday night, the governing board of our congregation, the Session, voted unanimously to post signs on the church property, in accordance with Texas state law, to prohibit concealed and open carry guns on the premises.

The Session believes that they have acted in the best interests of the congregation. Their concern is for the volunteers at our Central Mission on Thursday mornings, for children who are upstairs above Smoot Hall while their parents attend ESL classes, for the staff during the course of the week, as well as for fellow worshippers who come to Sunday services expecting to find a safe place surrounded by symbols that point them to God. Believing that there is a time and place for everything, it is the opinion of the Session that church is not the best place for the presence of guns.
