  • Contemporary Worship Ministry | Central Presbyterian Church

    CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP MINISTRY PRAISE BAND We have a small group of musicians committed to using their gifts for serving the Lord! The band plays a variety of Christian music genres including contemporary christian rock, pop, folk, bluegrass, gospel, and more. Occasionally, we worship in spanish in order to celebrate God in representation of our whole neighborhood community! If you are interested in joining the band, contact Erin Adams! Back to Ministries DANCE TEAM Did you know??? The first recorded occurrence of worship dance is in Exodus 15:20 ~ "Then the prophet Miriam, Aaron’s sister, took a tambourine in her hand; and all the women went out after her with tambourines and with dancing." After this, the Bible mentions dance about 20 times! For the dance ministry team at Central, our goal is to celebrate what the Lord has done for us through the art of dancing. We strive to draw ourselves and others closer to God through our movements and by creating meaningful and selfless moments of pure worship and surrender to our Messiah. When you can no longer talk, sing. When you can no longer sing, dance. Dance team meets occasional Fridays at 5pm. All are welcome to join us! Back to Ministries TECH TEAM DRAMA TEAM Many plots, many characters, many themes, but one purpose: TO FURTHER GOD'S KINGDOM. The drama team at Central Presbyterian is committed to creating skits, presentations, and experiences that glorify the Lord. We have no interest in making ourselves look good, but instead, we desire to reveal Christ's faithfulness through different scenarios. Some of what we do is comical, some is very intense, but it is always authentic. Drama team meets occasional Fridays from 5-6pm & when additionally necessary for the service. Back to Ministries God is good in providing committed sound and slideshow technicians who help our contemporary worship service to function!

  • Stephen Ministry | Central Presbyterian Church

    STEPHEN MINISTRY ​Life is marked by losses and changes; some traumatic, some subtle, all significant. ​ “But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” - Isaiah 40:31 This is a very meaningful, hope-filled scripture that we often use to encourage one another, and count on ourselves. And yet, when we are in the throes of a very difficult time in our life, it may seem that we will never again be able to renew our strength and soar on wings like eagles. That’s one reason why a faithful, caring listener who will walk alongside us for the duration of our most difficult season can make such a difference. With the help of a trained Stephen Minister, we can have the freedom to recognize and acknowledge our deepest hurts, ask difficult questions for which God alone has the answers, give ourselves permission to fully grieve a loss, be reminded of God’s promises for us and how much He loves us, receive His healing love, find the strength to face and accept the “new normal” in our lives, and truly come through our time of suffering into a place of renewed strength. Caring Stephen Ministers commit to meet and talk with someone regularly; usually once a week. Added to their caring nature, they receive training that enables them to bring Christ into the healing process and are able to discuss topics that are often too uncomfortable for friends or family members. A confidential relationship with a Stephen Minister provides non-judgmental listening, steadfast encouragement, and consistent prayer support. Central’s trained Stephen Ministers include: Dave and Linda Bender, Kathi Bietsch, Brenda Black, Dave Bowers, Dot Buchwalter, Bill Daniels, Jean Diehl, Jenine Grove, Cindy Happel, Ron Igou, Deb Mummert, Susan Snyder, and Kari Wiley. Some of our Stephen Ministers walk with someone in a specific caring relationship over an extended period of time; others use their caring skills in different ministries here at church or various short-term relationships as a need arises. You may feel that a need is too small to inquire about a Stephen Minister, but that is simply not true. We welcome questions about, and referrals to, this “behind the scenes” ministry. Any of our Stephen Ministers will be happy to further explain how a caring relationship works. Due to confidentiality when requesting a Stephen Minister for yourself or to make a referral, we ask you to contact Stephen Leader Trena Oyler, Cindy Happel, or Pastor Scott. ​ Stay tuned for upcoming trainings!
