The Mission of Central United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Central United Methodist Church, empowered by the Holy Spirit, proclaims the good news of Jesus Christ: that God's Love and Grace are available to ALL. We are passionate servants who are called to serve Him by worshipping joyfully, growing spiritually, serving with compelling commitment, and totally embracing and loving all.

There is a place and an opportunity for every person. We offer a variety of ministries for children, youth, and adults of all ages.

Come grow with us in Christian fellowship, worship, Bible study, and service to others.
