We want you to be comfortable! You will find some folks in jeans and a few in suits and everything in between.
Q? Where can I park?
Parking on Church Street: There is handicap parking on the south side of the church near the main entrance. There is also a parking lot across the street from the church on Church Street.
Main Street: The church has a parking lot located on the north side off from Main Street. This entrance opens into the downstairs Fellowship Hall and you can get to the Sanctuary via staircase or elevator.
You can also take the street sidewalk around to the main entrance on the south side of the church.
Q? Is the facility barrier-free/handicap accessible?
Yes! We do have stairs but we also have an elevator and a lift.
Q? Where do my kids go?
Children are always welcome in worship at Central. We have a well-appointed nursery for children age 4 and under, staffed with loving, caring, screened volunteers in the basement level. We’d love to have the little ones experience worship with their family before going to the nursery after the Children’s Moment in worship.
Q? Will I be expected to give money?
As a guest, we hope you will simply pass the offering plate down the pew. Those who are members and regular worshipers practice giving a portion of their resources to the church as an essential part of worship and commitment to Christ.
Q? What is the Sunday worship service like?
We begin at 10:30* am with our organist playing. We sing, read scripture and pray. The sermon is an exposition of Biblical truth. We take an offering. The whole morning will be easy to follow with a printed bulletin in your hand and a screen projection in the front. When worship ends about an hour later, we invite you to Fellowship Hall for coffee, cookies and conversation.
* Summer Worship Schedule changes to 9:30 am from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.
Q? May I participate in Holy Communion?
Yes! We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month, and everyone is invited to participate as we share juice and bread in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice for us on the cross.
Q? What do you believe?
United Methodists believe that God is understood in three distinct forms. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are commonly used to refer to the threefold nature of God. Sometimes we use other terms, such as Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.
