Summer Sunday School for children ages 5 years old through 5th grade will begin on Sunday, June 4.

Please note: this is a NEW TIME and a NEW LOCATION.

Summer Sunday School will be from 9:30-10:15am (new start time). Children who are in Contemporary worship will still go to Sunday School right after the Time for All God’s Children. We will meet in the Disciples Room – downstairs near the Great Hall.

Please watch for an email and flyer coming to families to give you more details about what we will be learning and doing in Sunday School this summer. We hope your children will join us as often as possible!

Safe Church Training Scheduled 6/3/23

main image

Central Christian Church provides a safe and sacred environment for all people. One way that we do this is by training our staff and volunteers in our Safe Church Policy. We have updated our policy and will be offering training on

Saturday, June 3, 9-10:30 in the Connection Café.

All church staff and volunteers who work with children and youth are required to take this training. This includes everyone who will be helping with summer Sunday School and VBS.

If you would like to attend this training and have not already signed up, please contact Pastor Vicky or call the church office. There will be another training offered before VBS, if you are unable to attend on June 3.

A Prayer for Sabbatical – One God, One Church

We invite you to pray this prayer as often as you can during the 12 weeks of sabbatical. Pastor Michael will be committing to do the same. May these words of devotion serve to unite us all spiritually over the coming months:


God of Oneness,

In this time of sabbatical, may we rest in you, finding quiet that connects us with you in deeper ways.

May we be present to you with open hearts and minds, trusting you to show us the way to peace.

May we be present to one another with gentleness and understanding, seeking to be more loving and authentic.

May we hold Michael in our love and prayers, that he may commune with you,

O God, and find what you have already prepared for him to receive.

May our time of distance be one of renewed commitment to our shared ministry.

We pray with thanksgiving and hope, in Your holy name.
