OUR MINISTRIES AT CENTRAL


Serving the Lord through the ministry of the church is both the responsibility and privilege of every believer. Central United Methodist Church has many areas of ministry and we encourage each person to participate in this means of grace and blessing to others - and to discover that serving the Lord is also a means to draw closer to Him and His people.


HAVE FUN & LEARN ABOUT JESUS.

  • Sunday morning childcare available for infants and toddlers thru age 3.
  • A children's sermon during each service and Children's Church for K-6th grade includes a Bible-based lesson.

COME AND JOIN US!

Our 7th thru 12th grade Youth Group meets on the first Sunday of the month for Bible study and a light lunch.  They also meet a second time each month for a fun or community-involved activity.  

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

WHAT CAN WE DO FOR OTHERS?

From weekly community dinners and A.A. meetings to serving communion to our homebound members, we touch many lives in

our community.


ADULT GROUPS

ENGAGE IN FELLOWSHIP WITH OTHERS

  • short-term bible study groups are offered several times a year. We study the Bible to know God better and to foster a Christian worldview for living to please Him.
  • The United Methodist Women's group is very active in supporting the missions of the global church. They meet throughout the year and hold special events, social outings, and various fundraisers for Missions such as the annual rummage and bake sale held the 1st weekend in October. 
  • Our Friendship Group meets twice a month for fun & fellowship. Senior men and women gather for board or card games followed by light refreshments. Anyone looking to get out of the house for a couple of hours is welcome to join us.

CHOIR

We always welcome new members in our Chancel Choir.  There have been a lot of studies recently that reveal the many benefits of singing in a choir.  While any singing has rewards, there are reasons you should join a choir rather than simply singing in the shower. Studies have found that singing in a choir releases oxytocin, a chemical that manages anxiety and stress and, according to McGill University professor Daniel Levitin, enhances feelings of trust and bonding.  It doesn't even matter if you can sing well. Investigators found that those singing in a choir experience the same benefits even when “the sound produced by the vocal instrument is of mediocre quality.”

So…Even if you don’t sing like a rock star

or an opera singer,
we can find a place for you and

we would love for you to
reap these benefits just the same

by joining our choir!

When the voices of the singers surrounding you hit your ears, you’ll be bathed in dopamine, a neurotransmitter in the brain that is associated with feelings of pleasure and alertness. Music also lowers cortisol, a chemical that signals levels of stress.

SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? 
It’s time to sign up for the choir!   Your good health depends on it!
