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 in the heart of East Charlotte.  Browse our pages and see for yourself that ALL people are welcomed and served here.  We strive to embody the words of Galatians 3:28 “There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.”  Our congregation reflects the diverse community of which we are proud to be a part, with folks from all continents of the world.  Be our guest here, on Sunday mornings and all through the week.  You ARE welcomed here.                                            . . . . . Pastor Michelle Chappell
