Welcome to Central UMC


“Joyfully embracing the diverse community where God has placed us,

to become the ONE community God wants us to be. . .”

Welcome to Central United Methodist Church. I am glad you have chosen to spend a few moments looking around, discovering our church family. As I describe Central to people, I like to use words like ‘community’ and ‘family.’  We reflect the community of which we are proud to be a part of, with folks from all continents of the world.  Our hope is that all people will feel loved and welcomed at Central.  While you are browsing our website, you will learn about our programs and get a glimpse of who we are, but only a glimpse. To fully understand us, come and worship with us.  Enjoy the website, then come. We’d love to meet you and know you.                                                                              —-Pastor Pam Blackstock

SUMMER SUPPER:  Another full house of Central congregation and eastside neighbors watched and discussed the movie “Sanctuary” about a sanctuary church in Greensboro.  Adults joined hands for prayer following the program

On July 10 families filled the Fellowship Hall for the first Summer Supper of 2019, featuring Edward Spencer from #412 Ministry who talked about understanding the importance of building relationships which will provide steps out of poverty.  

Maria Medina and Lucia introduced the girls, 5-12, to Girl Scouts–a troop that will be meeting after the Wednesday suppers and Tuesday and Thursday mornings.  Call 704-771-3861 for info.  Boys got some soccer training with Matt and others from 658 Street Soccer and will meet together each Wednesday evening.
