WHERE DO I GO?
We encourage you to use the Atrium entrance located at the West end of the campus. As you enter, Central Station Guest Services will be on your right and Cafe Central to your left. Feel free to grab a complimentary coffee or water at the Coffee Kiosk. The Worship Center (Sanctuary) will be to your right through the Grand Foyer. You may also enter by the Cross Tower/Fountain area closest to the Worship Center. Restrooms are conveniently located to the east and west of the worship center and in the Atrium behind Cafe Central. Greeters are located throughout the building and will help point you in the right direction.
WHERE DO MY CHILDREN GO?
All children from birth to 5th grade are checked into Kid Central Kiosks in the Atrium. This area is easily identified by the colorful kids graphics. Volunteers are there to guide you through the check in process where you will receive a printed name/ID sticker for each child. A special code is also assigned in the event you need to be contacted during service. You will also receive a matching sticker to identify you as the designated adult to pick up your child after service.
Children and students are highly valued at Central. We provide the best in programming and all volunteers must pass a background check. Your children will learn biblical truths with additional take home materials to help you grow your faith together as a family.
WHERE DO MY MIDDLE AND/OR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS GO?
At 9:15am, students meet upstairs in Room 212 (take the Atrium stairs by the Kids Ministry Check-in and hang a left at the top of the stairs). There is a group gathering with worship and teaching and small groups. At 11:00am, students sit together in the main service down front by the stage on the right side of the worship center.
On Wednesday nights, students gather in Room 212 at from 6:15 to 7:45pm for worship and teaching. There are also additional events and activities planned throughout the year.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
You will find people wearing a variety from a suit/dress to business casual to jeans. The Classic service tends towards the more traditional side and the Contemporary Service is more casual. We invite you to be comfortable, but encourage you to be respectful and not distracting in worship. It’s all about helping others to “Know Christ and make Him known!”
HOW EARLY SHOULD I ARRIVE?
It is helpful to arrive a little early to check your kids into the Kids Ministry area and still have time to find a seat before the service. If you arrive 20 minutes early, you should have plenty of time.
If you don’t have children to check in, you will have plenty of time to grab a complimentary coffee or bottled water before the service. Friendships can be built over a cup of coffee. Be sure and check out the amazing Cafe Central with a variety of delicious breakfast treats. The jumbo home-made cinnamon rolls are a Central favorite. Cafe Central serves from 8:30am to 11:00am.
AM I EXPECTED TO PUT MONEY IN THE OFFERING?
As a guest, there is no pressure or expectation for you to give. Just pass the offering plate on down the row. Those who consider Central to be their church home are invited and encouraged to help others come to know Christ through giving. Once a month we have a $ Club Offering where we collect one dollar bills. It is an opportunity for everyone to participate in giving back to the community. Giving can be done through several methods: cash or check during the service or online. Offering envelopes are available in the pews for your convenience.
There are many ways to get connected at Central Community Church. Choosing a church home is an important decision and we want to assist you any way we can.
All guests are invited to visit Starting Point immediately following each service. It is a reception area where you can meet Pastor Bob and Lori Beckler and other pastoral staff members. We would love to put a name with a face and help answer any questions for our guests. Starting Point is located to your right as you exit the worship center.
