A Christ-Centered Community in Atlanta, GA

Our Vision Statement

“A Christ-Centered, Radically Inclusive, Intergenerational congregation that uses its Spiritual Gifts
to meet the needs of our unique surrounding Community.”

Central "LIVE" Worship Experience

VIRTUAL WORSHIP AVAILABLE ON:

Join us each Sunday at 10:00 a.m. for a time of praise, Word and spiritual fellowship. Our worship experience is broadcast live on our YouTube channel and live-streamed on our Facebook page.

At Central, we practice the "Six Marks of Discipleship:" daily prayer, Bible reading, weekly worship, Christian service, relationships that encourage spiritual growth, and giving in the spirit of generosity.

We look forward to seeing you at our weekly worship!

Lectionary Message:  "Immutability—that is, unchangingness—is one of the (generally) agreed-upon attributes of the Triune God throughout the history of Christian theology. Naming God’s immutability is, in part, a way of distinguishing God from humans, who are always changing and, at times, quite fickle. Now, you might be thinking, “But what about those times God changes God’s mind? What are you gonna do with that?” This is no place to enter into a centuries-long debate about whether an immutable God can change God’s mind. However, it does raise an interesting point for reflection concerning Psalm 138, our text for today, because the psalmist affirms that one attribute of God is absolutely steadfast and, to use our fancy theology term, immutable: God’s love."  (umcdiscipleship.org)
