VBS 2024 Volunteers Needed

main image

VBS is coming to Central the week of June 17-20. It takes many adults and youth helpers to prepare and participate in making VBS a fun-filled week of learning Bible stories, creating crafts, playing games, and eating snacks.


Volunteers help by shepherding small groups as they move from station to station, gathering supplies and preparing crafts, decorating, and assisting station leaders. Do you have some time to share? We would love your help.


There will be a VBS Orientation meeting for all helpers on Wednesday, June 5, from

6-7pm. Everyone who works with our children must be Safe Church trained, which we provide (and the training is renewed every 3 years). If you want to volunteer or have some questions, please contact Pastor Vicky.

Liturgists Needed

Wanted: Liturgists

Central is looking for more liturgists to serve in either Traditional or Contemporary worship. Liturgists help usher people into a worshipful mindset by leading a prepared Call to Worship during the service. They also write their own invocation prayer that is read before the Lord’s prayer. Training available! For more information, contact Pastor Michael.

A Word from David Martin, Youth Director

It has been proven that youth who have five adults outside of their family who are willing to invest in a teens life are more likely to stay connected to the church. For me and my almost 25 years at Central, there have been many more than five adults who have impacted my life. From my Sunday school teachers, to youth group leaders, Faith Quest elders, camp counselors, and more, I always had countless adults in the church that I knew were supporting me along my journey. I speak often about the influence that Larry Chapman had on me. He would come to watch me play baseball, seek me out on Sunday mornings, and check in every time he saw me. Shirley Swarthout is another church member who had a great impact on me. Shirley gave me the opportunity to help out in the kitchen and serve at all of the meals we would host during the year. I am sure it took great patience on her part to put up with our group of middle and high school boys that had to make more of a mess than we cleaned, but she kept letting us help and giving us the consistent opportunity to serve our church. In fact, looking at the life paths of many of the youth from around my age, I do not think that it is a coincidence that many of us have gone into teaching, ministry, coaching, or higher education. There was always a constant support system for all of us. 

Today, Central is in a great position. Our youth and children’s programs continue to grow, and with that comes a great opportunity. As we continue to work towards our goal of connecting with the future generations, I ask that you please consider becoming a volunteer for our youth program and help us continue to impact the lives of the youth and their families at Central. There are many different ways that you are able to get involved.

2nd Monday Good Samaritan Volunteering

The second Monday of each month, volunteers from CCC help prepare and serve lunch at Good Samaritan Inn.  Shifts to work are 9:00a.m. - 11:00a.m. to prepare and 11:30a.m. - 1:30p.m. to serve (standing for 2 hrs). It's very rewarding work and much appreciated.  If this appeals  to you and you have the time to give, call or text Judy Ford or contact the church office.
