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

Courageous Conversations Continue at Central

Racism is being addressed by Central members and friends as “Courageous Conversations” continue in zoom calls about ways to make people of all races welcome in the church.  Pastor Pam offered a calendar for action of 30 Days of Anti-Racism in which everyone can participate.  Contact Pastor Pam to become part of the conversation.

Congregating still on hold due to Covid19 Quarantine

Stay at home orders have been extended for NC and Mecklenburg County past May 8.  Lots of decisions are still to be made about group gatherings and other activities.  In the meantime, check in on Central’s Facebook page for up to the date information.  There you can also watch all the videos of services and other offerings our church staff have provided:  worship, music, skits, children’s events and all the rest.  Keep an eye on your email too.
