About Worship


All are welcome at Central United Methodist Church.  Worship services are held on Sunday mornings at 11:00 (10:00 during summer beginning May 26) and are both in-person and broadcast on Facebook.

What time is the worship service?
Sundays begin with Adult Sunday School at 9:00 am (held both in-person and via Zoom) followed by a time of coffee & snack fellowship at 10:30 am. Nursery care is provided for children up to 3 years of age.

The worship service begins at 11:00 am (10:00 during summer beginning May 26).

What is Central’s worship style?
Central has always had a “traditional” worship style. Everyone is welcome to participate in communion, which is held the first Sunday of each month during worship.

What you will find?
Central is a diverse congregation with open hearts, minds, and doors for All of God’s people. Dress code? No such thing! Come as you are and join with Centralites to love God and your neighbor!

What do kids do during the service?


Central provides a nursery for children 3 and under.  It is located next to the Gathering Room, just outside the Sanctuary.  Toddlers and older children are invited to begin worship with their parents in the Sanctuary.  Following the Children’s Focus, children are then invited to attend Children’s Church.  We welcome the participation of the youngest members of the family of faith!
