Visiting Central

Join us for our traditional, hour-long worship service in the sanctuary at 11 a.m. In this service you will hear a great variety of music from the choir, organ, and guest instrumentalists; you will witness the Word of God through dramatic and interpretive scripture readings and inspiring sermons; and you will see the beauty of the Holy Spirit through the liturgical arts displayed in the Sanctuary.

“O Lord, I love the house in which you dwell, and the place where your glory abides.”
– Psalm 26
