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.

Seventh Cents Youth Group
JOIN THE FUN!
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!

Youth Ministry Architects Assessment of "7th Cents" Youth Minstry and Recommendations for advancement
In the past, our "7th Cents" youth ministry held and assessment/evaluation of our youth programming and a 21 page recommendation was put forth for how to go about improving our youth ministry so that we can reach as many youth for Jesus Christ as effectively as possible.
This report and recommendations has been approved by the Education Ministry and Administrative Council of our church. In the months ahead we hope to grow our youth ministry in many ways.
Come, Join Us on Sunday
FROM THE PASTOR’S PEN
Where did January go? It seems like we just started the new year and now here it is February.
There are two things I want you to be aware of as we begin this new month.
The first thing is our new outreach ministry. Beginning January 23, we will be kicking off our new lunch ministry. The ministry will be called the 551 Community Kitchen. We will be serving a free meal to anyone who wants to come. This could be ISU students, faculty or staff. It might be people from the down town area, both merchants and shoppers. It might be people from various agencies around the city. It might even be the homeless or less fortunate. Who ever it is, we will serve them. I encourage you to be involved with this ministry, even if it is just through prayer.
The second thing is that Lent is approaching fast. March 1 is Ash Wednesday. Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of themselves for others.
So as we experience these new beginnings, Lent and new ministry, let us ask ourselves, How can I be evolved? What is God calling me to do this Lenten season? Where is God leading me?
May God continue to guide us and direct us as we work towards his mission.
For the only cause that matters,
