Looking for a church?

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.

Church-Wide Mission Project

A lot has been going on at the Matthew's Cottage and there have been many, many "Helping Hands" involved in this church-wide mission project. A lot of time has been spent on painting, cleaning, decorating, building, and shopping. This is the last week we can get in the cottage until the end of the month. If you have purchased items for the cottage, you can start bringing them to the Fellowship Hall. Make sure you label the items if they go in a particular room. It would be nice if we can get a time when you can bring your items up and decorate the rooms with all of your special touches. Perhaps we can find a convenient time the first or second week in May.

If you have not had a chance to get involved yet, there is a "Wish List" down in the Fellowship Hall of items that you can still get. Again I want to say a special thanks for all the hard work each of you have done to make this cottage extra special for some very special children. This is what missions are all about, giving of yourself and your time.
