Frequently Asked Questions


What do you do for kids?

Follow signs that direct you to the Kid's check-in station. Kid's programming for pre-k through 5th grade is available during both worship gatherings. Safety for children is a top priority. All of our volunteers have been screened with detailed background checks as well as trained to make church a fun and safe environment for your kids!

Our approach to kid ministry


How long is service?

During service we sing, prayer together, and listen to a teaching from Pastor Jim. Service lasts about 75 minutes.

We sing to please God and to build others up. Colossians 3:16 says, “Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.” For us, that’s what worship is all about. Our songs are a celebration of who God is and what He is doing in our church.


What should I wear?

Words about clothes and general mindframe.


Where do I park?

Drone shot of parking lots?

Located at Campbell and Calhoun, we have a large parking lots surrounding our church, so finding a spot is easy. Feel free to arrive a few minutes early to grab a coffee and check in your kids before service begins.

As you walk into the building, our greeting team will meet you and show you where to find the sanctuary, restrooms, and children's ministry. If you need anything throughout the day just ask anyone with a Central lanyard or name tag. We’re a friendly bunch and we’d love to serve you.


What if I have questions?

We're excited to meet you! Feel free to hang out after service to meet our staff and connect with others. If you have any questions about your visit, please contact us at info@centralassembly.
