Our goal is to meet the needs of our community the way Jesus met the needs of His. Jesus walked shoulder to shoulder with people dealing with the struggles of life, and He simply showed His love for them—a love that was selfless and without agenda or ulterior motive. We are people who have experienced that life-changing love; therefore, we want to show it to others. Here are a few of the ways we’ve been trying to do that.
Teams gather once a month on Saturday mornings and head out to Central’s surrounding neighborhood. Based on what neighbors have requested, they do everything from simple projects like mowing lawns and clearing debris to more advanced tasks like repairing porches.
Once a month volunteers fill Central’s lobby with canned goods and other non-perishable groceries. Kids play and color at a station designed for them while nearby their parents sit and talk with people from the church. Volunteers offer to carry the free groceries out to people’s cars.
During the school year, our Kids Are Central ministries host clubs that show kids how uniquely special they are to God. They also donate school and teacher supplies, give Christmas presents to kids in nearby schools, and gave every kid at one local elementary school a bicycle.
Central’s Student Ministries offers an after-school program for students who attend Pipkin Middle School. On Thursday afternoons the Fusion Student Center is open for students to hang out, play in the gym, and participate in various clubs and activities.
Oil Change Ministry
Trained mechanics offer free monthly oil changes for single moms, widows, and wives of military personnel. Moms and kids enjoy refreshments and fellowship in our Community Center while their cars are being serviced.
People from all walks of life are invited to work through life’s hurts and destructive habits in this safe environment. Valuing anonymity and unconditional acceptance, our recovery program has become a tightly-knit community of support.
