Q: Can anyone participate in church activities, or only members?
A: Almost all activities are open to non-members of Central, with the exception of a very few offices and voting at official Church Conferences. We welcome you to participate actively in our community.
Q: How often does the church offer communion?
A: Normally we celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month, as well as during special services like Maundy Thursday. During COVID-19, our communion has been virtual. Starting in September, we will offer a brief weekly communion service for those who prefer to commune weekly; once we are able to worship in Central Park, we will suspend communion on Sundays in favor of on-line communion. Everyone is welcome to participate in communion: the table is the Lord’s!
Q: How can I learn more about Central’s ministries?
A: Three or four times a year, our pastor leads an Orientation to Central course, usually in three sessions, to help people learn more about United Methodism and Central specifically. To receive an invitation to the next Orientation or to ask specific questions about how to join the church, contact our pastors: Khmer speakers, contact Pastor Viseth Hou. English speakers, contact Jan Everhart Hartliff (see staff page for e-mails and phone numbers). Our website also includes a lot of information about age-level and specific programs, so feel free to explore here!
