Sundays at FCC

If this Sunday is your first time at First Central, know that you are our special guest.  This page contains helpful information.

No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you’re more than welcome here. We are friendly folk, so if you have any questions that are not answered below, please ask someone.


Our worship service is held on Sunday at 10:30AM in the sanctuary.  In our worship, you’ll discover a living tradition with a message that is progressive, inclusive, and visionary.   On the first Sunday of the month we celebrate communion, and everyone is welcome to participate.  On communion Sundays children remain in worship so that they too can participate. Everyone is invited to our fellowship time following worship.

Children's Activities

Children's Sermon, CHS Singers in ChoirChildren are welcome to remain in worship or attend our church school, held most Sunday mornings.  Kids depart from the worship service after the Conversation with the Children .   Classes are held on the first floor and include Bible stories, activities, and songs. The first Sunday of the month we usually have no church school so that kids can participate in communion with their families.  Our children also participate as liturgists in worship and a few times a year lead the entire service.
