From its beginning, Central Community Church has been anything but a "normal" church. The first services were held in what was once a warehouse with approximately 125 members using lawn chairs and box fans to keep cool.
Pastors Darrell and Donna Allen had a vision God laid on their hearts to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Neither could imagine how quickly that dream would become reality or how big it would become.
In less than five years, the church has grown to accommodate approximately 1,500 worshipers on Sundays with two morning services and 600 on Wednesdays, with the youth ministry averaging 160 young adults.
Plans are underway to add a state of the art café, covered entrances and drop-offs, as well as a bigger sanctuary.
At Central, there is a place for everyone from young to old, male, female, married and single. Central has Sunday morning services at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., Sunday night services at 6 p.m. and Wednesday night services at 7 p.m. For men, there is a monthly and weekly prayer and Bible study and the ladies have Bible study groups and events throughout the year. There are also groups for singles, married couples, seniors, nursery through pre-school, middle and high school as well as college students.
Central Community Church is a non-denominational, contemporary, spirit-filled church that provides a welcoming place and church home for individuals and families wanting a relationship with God. Known for its dynamic, inspirational worship services and powerful real life preaching and teaching, members are guided by scripture and the spirit of God to find acceptance, true friendships and a life of joy, peace and service. CCC has committed itself to leading people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
It only takes one visit to see how the church earned the slogan ‘can't be explained, only experienced.' Whether through music, fellowship, preaching or prayer and healing service, the spirit is evident and powerful at Central.
The youth ministry is led by Adam and Jamie Farley, who have a love and passion for guiding and teaching them in seeking Christ's presence in their lives.
Revo is a place where middle, high school and college students can come together to make the pursuit of Christ's presence their passion. Revo has several opportunities for everyone to get plugged in through two dance teams, a drama team and live band.
April 23 - 25 will be the ‘Encounter Worship Conference,' featuring artists Clint Brown, Rory Comtoise, Jody Braselton, David Brinson and Bishop Jeff Poole. For information on tickets, contact the church office at (770) 385-3452.
