Care & Support

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.  2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Care at Central

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.
