Welcome to Central Congregational Church!

The mission of Central Congregational Church is to live our faith in Jesus through worship, education, and service.

We are an energized and engaged congregation providing diverse worship opportunities, vibrant multi-generational education, and varied community service that has a positive impact on the world.

Our Commitment as an Open and Affirming Church

We, the congregation of Central Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, declare ourselves to be an Open and Affirming congregation. With the grace of God, we commit ourselves to being a congregation that includes all persons, embracing diversity and not restricting participation because of gender, marital status, sexual orientation, age, mental and physical ability, as well as racial, ethnic and socio-economic background.

We welcome all persons, whether members or non-members, to share in the full life and ministry of this church including fellowship, worship, sacraments and ceremonies and celebrations; in the shared responsibilities of stewardship and living in a covenantal relationship; in the shared blessings of the right to marry or celebrate a commitment to a person of one's choosing, in the right to celebrate a loved one's life in a memorial service; and to receive pastoral care.


For Visitors

UCC News and Information

Summer at Central

Childcare during worship is available for small children. It's in the nursery located off the Narthex (front entrance hall). If you need to comfort your child you are welcome in the nursery (speakers allow you to hear the service). We have a carpeted space in the rear of the sanctuary for adults with young children. You are invited to sit, rock and soothe your child during the service.

We celebrated Sunday School, Confirmation, and Graduation on June 12, 2016. Take a look!
