Our Preschool Ministry focuses on loving children to a relationship with Jesus Christ. Our programs and events are designed to teach Bible stories and concepts, share learning activities, and provide a safe, loving environment.

By participating in a parent-child dedication you make a personal commitment to provide a home in which Christ is honored. The dedication in our worship service provides parents an opportunity to make this commitment public before God, friends, and family. At Central, this dedication happens at the parent’s initiative with only one family dedication per service to allow for a specific blessing on your family. Contact Kara for more information and to schedule your parent-child dedication.
