MINISTRIES - LIFE OF THE CHURCH
The Central Christian Church congregation is filled with caring volunteers who donate or even deliver food and other items to families in need; who serve as deacons and make house calls; and help with our many outreach programs, adult and youth groups, and our popular annual bazaar. Our church family also supports many nonprofit organizations financially and with material donations.
The Frog (Fully Rely On God) Pad is for children and teenagers in grades K-12.
The youth group meets at 4 p.m. each Sunday at Central Christian Church during the school year.
This special time of worship includes different age-appropriate lessons and games. Snacks are provided.
We also offer weekly children's church for preschool to elementary-aged kids during our Sunday Worship Service.
The Handbells (also known as the Chancel Bells) perform a wide repertoire of music. In addition to playing for the church's annual Christmas and Easter cantatas, they provide music for worship services every four to six weeks.
The Alleluia Choir sings for the church's annual Christmas and Easter cantatas and provides music for worship services three times per month. The choir’s musical selections span from the early Renaissance through the modern era.
The Crafters is open to all members of the Central Christian Church congregation.
The group, which meets at 9 a.m. each Thursday at the church, makes and sells crafts to benefit Central Christian Church and the community..
The “Sew Whats?” meet in the church's sewing room from 9 a.m. to noon on the first and third Tuesday of each month. While the volunteers sew with a purpose, they never quite know for sure what will be sewn next – hence, the name, Sew Whats?
The group’s primary project is creating health/sanitation kits for girls and women in underdeveloped countries and refugee camps. They also sew quilts for Hospice to be given out to clients as needed.
Daughters of Eve Study (DOES)
The Daughters of Eve Study meet at Central Christian Church at 6:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Monday of each month.
The fellowship includes a book discussion that pertains to the Bible.
