NOTE: During the pandemic, some of our Growth Groups, Bible studies, and book studies continue to run on an adjusted schedule. Here are a few of the upcoming events happening virtually. Click here for the full calendar.

Growth Groups

Central has Growth Groups (small groups) for everyone throughout the week in homes. We encourage every individual who worships at Central to become part of a Growth Group for personal growth, encouragement, and prayer support. We also encourage our groups to be actively involved in serving together, whether through church activity or in the community. While some groups come together around topical studies and then disperse, many groups are made up of the same people from study to study.
