We welcome you to Central, which is anything but the typical Baptist church. It

  • embraces a traditional style of worship.
  • is theologically moderate.
  • recognizes that women, as well as men, may serve in leadership positions and may be ordained.
  • exhibits loving respect for the diverse opinions of individual members.
  • embraces the belief that the individual is free to interpret the Bible for himself or herself, using the best study tools available to the individual.
  • is autonomous, though affiliated with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.

kitchenhelp We need some more people to help with Wednesday night meals. If you would like to participate in this important church program by cooking a meal, or helping on a team, please contact Anita Headley at aheadley@numail.org or 770-328-9448. It’s a great way to have fun and get to know both the Wednesday night team and other church members. Come join us; you’ll be glad you did!

coatclosetAs the saying goes, "If you don't like the weather in Georgia, wait five minutes, and it will change." That being said, our winters can get a bit nippy. Many times we find ourselves going to different states or countries to help those less fortunate than we, forgetting that there are many people in Newnan in need.


I am organizing a coat drive for the homeless/poor in Newnan, and I am hoping everyone will help in some way. Whether you can donate one or ten lightly used coats (all sizes), anything is appreciated. The deadline for donations is Friday, January 30. Please drop off the clean, lightly used coats on the Fellowship Hall stage any time between now and then.


Again, everything is appreciated!


Thank you,

Kathleen Duncan

Ever wonder if you have a problem when it comes to your use of alcohol? Has a friend or even your spouse told you that it has become a problem? This link has two sets of questions that look into a person's use of alcohol to determine if it's a problem. Take the time to answer the questions presented. If the answers you give indicate that you might have a problem, then consider doing something about it. You can call the church and talk to one of our ministers, or you can call the number in the phone book for Alcoholics Anonymous. It is an organization that has been around a long time with a really good track record for helping people with this problem. Please remember that alcoholism is a disease, like diabetes or coronary heart disease. If treated properly, you can expect to live a much healthier life. If ignored, then the problems will deepen and the impact on your family will only get worse. So, take the test, and if you need to, call me. --Joel
