Circle of Friends: Meet every Tuesday at 10:00 a.m., to visit, do crafts, laugh, love, and pray.


Movie and Lunch: Meets the second Monday of the month - 11:30-1:30. Lunch is Free!


Central Care Team: Call if there is someone you know who needs a call or a visit.  The purpose of this group is to visit those who are in need of a visit to let them know that we care about them.

Student & Young ADult Ministries

During junior high, high school, and even into college and young adulthood, people often experience both excitement and challenges in their faith. It's normal for beliefs to be questioned, affirmed & challenged in lots of ways. We hope to offer gospel centered community for this to take place, and opportunities to learn how to give our lives in service to Christ and others.


6th -12 Grade meet Wednesday nights from 6pm to 8pm and Sunday mornings at 10am.


College and Young Adults meet Sunday nights at 6pm.


Contact Joy Martinez at jmartinez@cumcwaco.com for more information. 

Children's Ministries

At Central, we promise to surround our children in a community of love and forgiveness, so that they may know the love of God and grow in their service to others.

We provide a nurturing caring environment for all children, helping them understand that each one is a

Child of God.


Wednesday nights from 6pm to 8pm is a time of music and activities for children 4-years-old to 5th grade.


Sunday mornings we have child care for infants and toddlers from 9am to 12noon.
