Each Sunday morning our elementary age children are invited to attend "Kids' Worship" upstairs following the pastors children's sermon in the sanctuary. During Kids' Worship our children do crafts, learn Bible lessons, watch videos and sing songs.
There is also Nursery Care (birth - 3yr olds) available through worship and Sunday school 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM Nursery care is often provided for other events as well.

Throughout the year our teens have special events. They have had movie nights, lock-ins, retreats, mission/service projects, amusement park trips, cookouts, Crop Walks, book discussion clubs, pancake breakfasts, Sunday worship led by the youth, Bible studies and game nights.
Our name derives from both Central Prebyterian Church and Centenary United Methodist Church being located on 7th Street. Both names begin with "Cent". Combined they make 7th Cents!

FROM THE PASTOR’S PEN
Well, here we are in the middle of summer. Growing season is well under way and people are enjoying fresh produce. Nothing tastes better than fresh vegetables. Let me state the obvious, in order to get a certain vegetable you have to plant that kind of seed. You cannot plant tomato seeds and expect to get cucumbers.
In my Wesley Study Bible the other day, I came across this Life Application topic:
“Why is today's harvest so poor? Why does today's harvest yield hunger, violence, and war? We reap what we plant. What seeds are we spreading around the world: crass individualism, selfishness, irresponsibility, lack of accountability, oppressive power, our-way-or-no-way? Those are the seeds some are planting. O God, let the birds devour these seeds, let them be scorched by the sun, choked the thorns. Help us, loving God! Help us to do whatever is needed so we can fill our sacks with seeds of justice, love, care, tenderness, reconciliation, and peace. Only then will we be able to reap the abundance of life.”
I thought those words were great. So, what kind of seeds are we sowing? What do we want to harvest?
For the only cause that matters,
