One of the distinctive characteristics of a Jesus-centered community is the love and care we give to each other. Central desires to be a community where each of us are known and cared for.
The Deacons exist to show God’s love and mercy by helping people in difficult circumstances. They support congregation members who are in challenging circumstances by assessing their needs and working together to find solutions. If you would like to talk with a deacon stop by Connection Central between services on Sunday to meet with the Deacon On Call or use the buttons below to email the deacons or request support.
The following items are available to borrow from the Deacon’s closet.
Prayer is a vital part of ministry at Central. Prayer requests – joys and concerns – are emailed to those who will lift these requests to the Lord. If you have a need we would love to pray for you. Submit Prayer Requests below. If you'd like to be part of the team and receive emails with these prayer requests - Join the Team.
