Beyond our mission to Connect, Grow and Serve these five terms give focus to our efforts and help define who we are as a church.
At Central Assembly we value-
At each of our services, kids from birth through 5th grade can learn about Jesus in a safe environment designed specifically for their age groups. Kids Check-In begins 20 minutes before each service and your kiddos are sure to LOVE our two-story indoor slide. We also have a Parent Room available for nursing moms or parents with active little ones.
Every Wednesday at 7PM, 6th to 12th grade students gather together for a time of worship and teaching. These weekly meet-ups along with summer camp, small groups, retreats and discipleship opportunities help students learn more about Jesus and connect with friends and mentors.
