There are many ways we can GROW: in our faith, as a church, in our maturity, as a community. On this page we’d like to highlight the many ways we grow as a family!  As new events are planned, look here for additional information–we’d love for you to join us!

Annual Birthday Dinner

By far the most loved and enjoyed event of our church calendar will happen on Thursday, February 1, at 5:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall!  That is when we hold our annual birthday party for EVERYONE!  All attendees will sit at the beautifully decorated table of their birth month with a special birthday cake just for them!  Then all are welcome to go around to sample cakes on other tables!  Everybody has a birthday so this party is for ALL.  Pizza will be served with an offering taken to offset its cost.

Please call the church office to make your reservation no later than January 30 to give our organizers a chance to allocate table space for each month.  When you call please be sure to tell Gina how many from your family are attending and the birth months of each.  You may also sign up online at  Prepare to have fun!!!


Information Session for Prospective Members

If you are interested in joining Central UMC or have questions about how and/or what membership looks like at Central, you’ll want to join in this session with Pastor Mark on Sunday, February 4th at 11:15 am in the Conference Room located on the second floor of the Education Building.

2019 Holy Land Pilgrimage Information Meeting

Sunday, February 11th, 11:15 am. Have you ever imagined what Jesus saw, heard or experienced while watching a sunrise in the desert, teaching along the Sea of Galilee, or walking in the markets of Jerusalem?  Consider experiencing moments like these on a pilgrimage to Israel February 7-20, 2019.  Pilgrimages are very different from tours. As we walk through the land where Jesus was born, grew up, died and was resurrected, we will not only “visit” these sites but we will “live” them.  Join Pastor Fawn in the Fellowship Hall if you are interested in learning more about this trip.

Ash Wednesday Worship Workshop–40 Days

February 14th from 5:30 to 7 pm.  EVERYONE is invited for dinner and a time to consider what this holy season of Lent is all about. This family friendly workshop will begin to prepare our hearts and minds for the celebration of Easter. We will conclude with the imposition of ashes at our Ash Wednesday service at 7 pm. Please contact the office or sign up outside of the Sanctuary by noon Monday, February 12th.





In case you missed it here are some pictures from this family-friendly, fun-filled event!
