Weekly News

Sunday, January 25, is Connect Sunday!

The Acts Church gathered together, studied together, worshipped together, prayed together, served together. They were better together.

At Central Assembly we meet together in large groups for worship and sermons and in small groups for study and relationship. Those small groups are as diverse and varied as the people who fill our pews. Once you get to know your group, you’ll discover they need you like you need them. Gather together. Study together. Worship together. Pray together. Serve together.

We are better together.

Whether you want to meet on a Sunday morning in a class, on a Tuesday evening in a family room, or anytime in between—there’s a group for you. Visit the Connect Counter for the complete group menu.
