At Central Church we don’t just say we love people, we act on that love. We connect and we encourage and we serve.
The Fig Leaf
On the first Saturday of each month (unless it is a holiday weekend) from 1:00 PM until 3:00 PM we open The Fig Leaf. This ministry provides new and gently used clothing to those in need at no cost, on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have questions about this ministry, would like to donate, or are in need of assistance with clothing needs, feel free to contact us!
Operation Christmas Child
Every year Central sets a goal of filling shoeboxes to bless children around the world with a little Christmas joy. We begin shopping for the boxes in August and pack the shoeboxes in late October, for an early November delivery to a distribution center. If you would like to assist us and share in spreading the gospel as well as some Christmas joy, please contact us here.
Vacation Bible Shool
Every year, Central provides a free Vacation Bible School during the summer. The community’s children can come to a safe, loving environment and hear Bible stories, participate in crafts, receive a snack, and just be loved by some of the greatest people around. For more information about our VBS, check here.
Local School Support
During the school year, Central works to support Grandview High School Marching Band through our Band Snack program. We provide a small snack bag to the Marching Band every week that there is a home football game. If you want to help pack a snack bag (we pack about 100 bags each time), let us know!
Central also hosts two meals for the Grandview High School football team providing smoked brisket or pork as well as home-cooked side dishes. We serve 60-80 players, managers, and coaches. If you’d like to volunteer to help serve, let us know by contacting us.
Central Church has several Life Groups that meet on Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:45 for in-depth Bible studies and encouragement. Our older adults are known as Encouragers. Our younger adults are known as Faith Builders. Our children are known as TruthSeekers. In addition to meeting on Sunday morning, TruthSeekers also meet on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM. Currently, due to COVID restrictions, these groups are not meeting.
Central’s people are also aware that there are hurting people around the world. We support missionary efforts in Europe, Asia, Africa, Central and South America. This support isn’t just sending money, it is hands on. Whenever possible, Central sends a team to assist missionaries in their efforts.
Finally, of course, we meet each week to worship God, learn from His word, and encourage one another. These weekly meetings are vital to our life as followers of Jesus. We meet on Sunday mornings, and Wednesday mornings. Our services are open to all…plan a visit!
