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. An account can be created on site at the church. Check in stations are available in the front entry of the church as well as 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 We eat a meal together at 6:30. After that we usually go into a game time followed by a large group lesson. We end the night with small groups and are done by 8:30 though many students will hang out for a little while after.
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 connect with your fellow church attenders and grow together in your faith journey.

This men’s Connect Group meets Tuesdays at 6:30pm at the 712 Youth Center (near Godfather’s Pizza). They are currently going through 2 studies: Every Man’s Marriage and The Book of Colossians (Louie Giglio). Email [email protected] for more details.
The Thursday night group (7:00pm at 712 Youth Center) is focused towards any man who is struggling with lust, porn, or sexual addiction and or who wants to avoid these things from becoming struggles at any point in his life. This will be a safe environment to share our thoughts and to offer ideas, support, and accountability to one another. The majority of the content and material comes from Freedom Fight but can be adjusted to fit the three topics covered to encompass the entire focus of the group. The hope is that the discussions had will offer hope and encouragement, along with a group of men who can depend on one another for accountability.
