Central Opening for Worship Sunday, October 11

The task force appointed by the deacons to look at issues related to opening the church met and decided that we are ready to open the church sanctuary for worship, beginning October 11, which is next week.  There will be protocols required in order to ensure the  safety of us all. We have begun taking reservations for worship on the 11th.  If you would like to attend worship with us in person and understand the risks involved with the virus, we invite you to call the church and make a reservation with Gwen. The number and her office is 386-255-2588. We hope to see you soon!

If you can’t make it, Central continues to stream worship services live with replays available anytime afterwards.  Click the worship tab here on the website to view live or later.  All the services back to March 22 are available for viewing.
