Located in the heart of the Farish Street Historic District, Central United Methodist Church’s mission is to share Jesus Christ with the Downtown community. Central UMC strives to be a caring, loving, and praying church with a vital and meaningful worship; meeting the needs of the community and its members by reaching, training, and sending out disciples for Jesus Christ. All people are welcome to join, and visitors will find a warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere where they are loved.
The church values the importance of relationships, and thus offers a variety of groups: Golden Worshipers in Action Senior Ministry, United Methodist Men, United Methodist Women, Youth and Children Ministries, Scouting Ministries, as well as a basketball league for adult males and youth. Central UMC also offers Bible studies, committee and ministry meetings, and choir rehearsals during the week. Members strive to lead lives in a manner pleasing to God on a daily basis.
