We are happy to announce the launch of an online tool designed to get you and your family more connected to your church!  Central City offers a way for you to keep your contact information up to date, give to the church online, register for events, and view the church calendar and church directory!

Visit the church website today; in the upper right hand corner on the home page you will see “Member Login;” click and create an account!  (You may also click here.)  Once you are logged into Central City start by making any updates needed to your profile.  You can even upload a picture and help our staff and members put a face with your name!  You will also see your giving and pledge history.  This is your giving history that is visible only to you.  Others cannot access your giving history.


Go to “Home,” and then click on “My Profile.”  Please carefully look over the information we have and make any changes needed by clicking on the picture of the pencil.


Note: If you have already donated to Central through online giving you have already created a user name and password, and you will use that for Central City too.

Copy of Stewardship 2016 Edited

Giving Everything We Are to God

"The Earth is the Lord's and all that is in it." - Psalm 24


The word stewardship most often brings to mind our financial responsibility to the church. Faithful stewardship involves much more than our responsibility. At the heart of stewardship is trust, trust in God to take care of all aspects of our life, including our finances so we can be more generous throughout all areas of our life.


This year's stewardship theme is "Live a simple, intentional life." We've spent months leading up to October looking into ways we can simplify our lives. Life can be busy and it's easy to fill our time and energy with things that make us more harried, worried, and exhausted. Simplifying our life means that we work to clear away the clutter, unburden ourselves from attachments that are not life giving, and move towards creating wholesome space for God's spirit to dwell in us.


In the spirit of simplicity and intentional living, we have simplified the annual stewardship booklet. The story of Central's impact is lived throughout the congregation and beyond. Stories have the power to transform people. Please visit our website and read the stories of how Central is making an impact in the world.


Instead of presenting statistics, we ask that you take time to reflect on your relationship with God and Central. How might you simply trust God by giving your time, your talents, your prayers, and your gifts?
