Newcomers Class


The class offers information concerning Central’s many offerings, a tour of the church, and classes taught by Dr. Rob Blackburn and Rev. Luke Lingle on the history and doctrine of the United Methodist Church. This class is open to newcomers to Central, new members, and longtime members of Central. For more information contact Suzanne Brown (828) 253-3316, ext. 1324.


The next round of Newcomers Classes for 2017 will begin on October 1st.  Each class meets for four Sundays beginning at 10:00 am.  Join us in the Welcome Center (Library), located on the Sanctuary level between the offices and the Sanctuary.


This is a great opportunity to meet other newcomers to the church and our ministers and to get detailed information on Central’s programs, activities, and opportunities for service. Everyone is welcome to come and learn more about Central UMC.
