Welcome to 

Central United Methodist

To make Disciples of Christ who WORSHIP God,
GROW in their faith, and SERVE in the
church and world.

Please know that everyone is welcome to Belong and Grow at Central UMC!

Sunday School for all ages meets at 9:00am.
Our 10:00am worship service is open to all and will offer you a worship experience unlike any other with a time for children,
a strong focus on prayer, a blend of musical offerings featuring many of our talented church members,
and a message that will revive your spirit for the week ahead!
When we celebrate Holy Communion, we practice an “Open Table,”
meaning that ALL are invited to partake of the bread and juice, regardless of denomination or age.
We offer Family Night Programming on Wednesdays at 5:15-6:00pm. This includes children's choirs, an Adult Bible Study, and a Parent Life Group.

Lenten Practices

During our Bishop Ken Carter's Facebook post on the season of Lent he recommended we read the book of Mark, pray the Prayer of Humble Access, and meditate on Martin Luther King, Jr's Sermon, "A Knock at Midnight." These daily/weekly practices will have a profound impact on your spiritual life during this Season of Lent. You can find more practices here.
Bishop Ken Carter recommended that we study and meditate on Martin Luther King, Jr's Sermon, "A Knock at Midnight." There is a LOT to meditate on even for us in 2024.
You can find the audio and transcript of this sermon here

Latest Sermon

We welcome you to join us online for worship no matter what day or time. Pastor David's sermons can be found by clicking the link below. And we invite you during the week to turn his words into action by seeking ways to serve the needs of your community.
We have become a Lighthouse Congregation of The Western North Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church in partnership with The United Methodist Collective Movement of our District and Conference. In doing so, we not only commit to remaining a part of The United Methodist Church but also to serving those who have lost their church homes through disaffiliation or closure.
