Center Church is celebrating Advent all month long. Advent is both an identification in anticipation and a posture of action.  As a community, we recognize that the birth of Christ has implications for our past, present, and our future. As a result, we celebrate with waiting and hope.  We have created several opportunities for you to engage this Advent Season. Join us at one of our Advent gatherings, or follow along with our Advent Devotional.


12.12.21  Advent Service Day –

We will take a break from our normal worship gathering and serve.  Join us at our new building, 910 S. Harrison – to worship in action. We will have a short time of singing and liturgy and then we will work on preparing the space for our worship gatherings. The event will take place from 10 AM – 1 PM. 


12.22.21  Buskey Cider Carol Sing

Center Church will be joining Boulevard UMC at Busky Cider to sing carols, drink cheer, and celebrate community.  Everyone is invited to attend, and families are encouraged to join in on the fun.  The Event will take place at Buskey Cider at 7 PM. 


12.24.21  Christmas Eve

Center Church, in partnership with Boulevard UMC, will host a Christmas Eve Gathering at 3:45 PM.  We would love for everyone to feel welcomed and invited as we celebrate the birth of Christ. This event will take place at our new home, 910 S. Harrison and we hope you’ll take this opportunity to celebrate, worship, and share in our joy for all that God is doing in our city. 

Please RSVP yourself and your family to ensure a seat; RSVPing will also help us discern the need for additional services.




Our community has created an Advent Devotional to help lead you through the Christmas Season.  Each week will include two devotional writings that coincide with the lectionary reading from each of the four weeks of Advent. This devotional is a great resource to follow as part of your spiritual practice of Advent. Physical copies will be available each week at Center Church gatherings. 


Center Church has been given an opportunity to put roots down in a new building.  This is a catalytic opportunity for our church to extend the love of Jesus throughout our city.  A seat is simple in design but empowering in function. To have a seat saved means that space was intentionally created for you.  It’s the place where stories are shared, and grief is divided. 

This Advent, we’re inviting you to SAVE A SEAT for you and someone you care deeply about, maybe a friend, a co-worker, or a family member.  We’d like to raise $20,000.
