11:00 A.M. Worship
This is a traditional-style service that lasts about an hour, occasionally a little longer. Communion is served the first Sunday of each month, and our table is open to all.
The last Sunday of each month is "Invite a Friend to Church" day, with a potluck lunch following the service. There is plenty of food, coffee, juice, and fellowship for everyone. Please join us!
You can also read and listen to sermons by our pastors and others.
9:00 A.M. Worship
We also hold a contemplative communion service at 9:00 A.M. which lasts about 45 minutes. Because this is usually a relatively small gathering, we are able to take the time to share our thoughts on the Bible passage of the day.
More information is available on the What to Expect page.

On the first Sunday of October, World Communion is celebrated in Christian Churches all over the world. At Central Presbyterian, we celebrate the diversity of our congregation, and of the world, by the use of breads of the world for communion instead of traditional communion wafers. We also ask our members to dress in their native costumes for church, and we drape our communion table in cloths from around the world. Also, on this Sunday, we receive the Peacemaking offering, which supports efforts for international cooperation based on fair trade, respect for diversity, and concern for a peaceful, just, and sustainable world.
The Pentecost offering (received in the summer) benefits children at risk and faith-focused ministries for youth and young adults locally, nationally, and around the world.
