We offer contemporary worship at every service with drums, keyboard, electric guitar and more.
Our teaching is Bible-Based.
On screens, we display scripture (Bibles are available if desired), and sermon outlines for anyone wishing to take notes.
Central's Children's Ministry offers programming and services for children during our weekend services as well as a Wednesday night program called Awana. During all church services we have a nursery available for children through age three years old and classroom programs for children through fifth grade. The age appropriate lessons give a variety of ways to experience Jesus through music, Bible stories, crafts, and videos. Our volunteers are committed to making this lesson time both fun and engaging and it is our desire to see each child grow and develop a relationship with the Lord.
Wednesday evenings during the school year, Central kids meet together for Awana. Students in preschool through 6th grade attend this program and learn about Jesus through worship, small group, and large group lessons and activities. Awana meets Wednesdays at 6:00 at Central Church. Our teachers and volunteers help the students rotate through the activities while the students work on Bible verse memorization and engage in Bible stories, working towards their own goals each week, and partnering with parents to help develop an ongoing relationship with God.
At Central Church, we place a top priority on keeping kids safe! We have a digital check-in system using Planning Center to sign into each time we meet. This great system allows us to know who is here and what allergies or special needs students may have. New accounts can be created onsite at the Welcome Desk. Check-in stations are available at the nursery station.
We are building a H.O.U.S.E -- Helping Our students Understand God's word Safely in an Environment that creates expectation and excitement.
Central's 712 youth meet at 712 Quint Avenue located near Godfather's Pizza.Map
On Wednesdays, our doors open at 6:00 PM, then we share a meal at 6:30. After that we usually go into an activity or game, followed by a lesson. Finally, we go into small groups until 8:30, when we wrap up.
Friday nights are one of the ways in which Central serves the Carroll community. Friday nights are a chance for 7th-12th grade students to simply come and hang out. This is a pretty relaxed, unstructured time for students to gather in a safe place.
Any student in 7th - 12th grade is welcome to join us on either Wednesday or Friday night.
Wednesday | 6:30 - 8:30 PM
Friday | 7:00 - 10:00

At Central Church, we believe you can’t do life alone.
We have Connect Groups you can join to stay connected with your fellow church attenders and grow together in your faith journey. Connect Groups exist so people can engage in biblical community that helps them become more like Jesus in every area of their lives; A space outside of the Sunday experience to form deeper relationships in an effort to grow closer to God and closer to each other.
This men’s group meets Tuesdays at 6:30pm at the 712 Youth Center
(near Godfather’s Pizza).
Finishing up “Kingdom Men Rising” by Tony Evans.
$20 book fee. Please sign up HERE!
Next Study: “The Book of Malachi.” Starting in Feb.
$10 book fee. “You have an enemy… and he’s dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What’s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn’t general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It’s specific. Personalized. Targeted. So this book is your chance to strike back. With prayer. With a weapon that really works. Each chapter will guide you in crafting prayer strategies that hit the enemy where it hurts, letting him know you’re on to him and that you won’t back down. Because with every new strategy you build, you’re turning the fiercest battles of life into precise strikes against him and his handiwork, each one infused with the power of God’s Spirit.”
The Crafters Corner Group is for anyone who crafts with crochet, knitting, sewing or other handwork tools. Invite your friends to join you! All ages welcome.
Upcoming Dates: Feb. 26th, and March 4th.
