Central Presbyterian Church

Our Sunday morning service tends toward the traditional in style with modern elements woven in throughout. Our focus is singing, praying, reading and preaching the Word, and we always attempt to draw the entire congregation into the activity of worship. The sermons are expositional in nature and style, and we enjoy the wonderful fellowship of gathering together to worship the Lord, to learn what He has for us, and then to go out and live it within our community.

Central is known for the giving nature of its members and their active involvement in the community through many different Christian organizations and non-profits. Central has a heart for children, youth, families, missions, and church-planting.
