Central Students exists to CELEBRATE our new life together in Christ, CONNECT students with friends who grow together in their faith in Jesus, and teach students to CONTRIBUTE to the work of God’s Kingdom.

The Gathering is a place for students to get to know each other, study God’s Word, and share their struggles and wins as we help each other out.

The Gathering meets on Sunday nights at 6:00pm. Everyone who wants to have a fantastic night for you and your friends is welcome to join us. Whether it’s your first time at Central or your fiftieth, you’ll feel welcomed as you are. This is also a great night to invite your friends who want to check out church for the first time. Each night looks a little different, but usually includes…

  • FOOD!
  • LOTS of games
  • Prize giveaways
  • Music
  • LIVE Speakers
  • GROUPS with your friends


Connect is Central Students’ weekly small groups that meet every Tuesday night at 6:00pm from September to May. During Connect we have snacks while we hang out and have fun for a bit. We then break into separate groups by age and ask questions as we dig into the scriptures for answers.

Students who want to know more about God and His word, own their faith, develop spiritual habits of daily Bible reading, prayer, and scripture memorization will find what they’re looking for during this small group Bible study that feeds each teen’s hunger for deeper relationships with God and their friends.

Sunday AM

We have Bible study for Junior High and High School students in our West hallway every Sunday morning at 9:30am. Our Junior High teens also meet for Bible study at 11:00am every Sunday morning. Volunteers are available at the entrance of our Central Students area to assist with check-in. Teens are also welcome in our services with their families.
