Central’s Ministries

Our Ministries

Our ministry teams will change as we see a need and/or find people with a passion for a specific ministry. Here is a listing of some of our active ministry teams. This listing is still incomplete. More will be added as information becomes available. Click on the team’s name to see more detail about that ministry.


 The Education Team at Central offers a variety of classes, workshops, guest speakers, and seminars that help us become the hands and feet of Jesus by loving God and each other and by nurturing faithful living. Programs are available for all ages.
