“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

Central Members Urged to Join Reconciling Ministry Network

Jill Henley, center, with Christy Bost and Matt Henley.

Central member Jill Henley read her letter to the congregation urging members to show love and support to the LGBTQ members of our church community and to participate in the Metro District Reconciling Ministry Network forming a new group of Methodists.  Laity and clergy are meeting April 28, 2-4 pm at St. Stephen UMC to support and educate other United Methodist individuals and churches about the full inclusion of all God’s people.  The movement is a reaction to the United Methodist Conference vote to endorse the “Traditional Way” proposal which excludes gay and lesbian members from being married in a United Methodist church or serve as clergy.
