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
