We have many ministries at Central Christian Church. As a church we try our best to give people an opportunity to practice their faith through service. We have groups for both men and women. We also minister to the youth who are involved in our church by providing age appropriate activities for each age group.
An important part of the vision of Central Christian Church is to connect with the community and world around us. As a result, Central has long been involved in efforts to reach out to the Danville/Vermilion County area, the nation and the world. For example, locally our church supports financially Love in the Name of Christ, the men’s Rescue Mission, YFRC, the Danville Area Food Pantry and many other organizations. Central has also long been a strong financial supporter of the ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) around the world.
Central is also involved in more “hands-on” ministry as well. Members of Central can often be seen raking leaves and building ramps with Faith in Action, delivering meals with CRIS Senior Services, ringing bells or delivering Christmas food baskets with the Salvation Army, swinging hammers on mission trips as well as volunteering with various organizations throughout the area. A priority in all of this is to partner with other churches and organizations to make our efforts more efficient and effective.
There are many opportunities for women to connect with one another at Central. Much of that takes place through the traditional Christian Women’s Fellowship (CWF) groups. Several CWF “circles” meet on a monthly basis at church or other locations. In addition, the CWF meets as a whole about four times per year for a session that centers around a meal and program. The CWF also has many events to raise funds to help support a wide variety of church, Disciples and other mission efforts.
There are other opportunities for women as well. Each summer, a large group of women from Central travel to a “Women of Faith” gathering for a time of singing, praying and encouragement. There are also special studies for women that are offered at various times through the year. These studies are typically offered both in the evening and during the day to accomodate various schedules.
Central has an active men’s that centers around a class that meets on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM. During these classes the group discusses a variety of topics intended to help men grow in their efforts to follow Jesus. The men of the church also participate in a variety of other activities, sponsor events at the church, and organize work days not only at the church but also to help people in the community. This group continues to look for ways to encourage one another, provide a strong witness for Jesus Christ and to strengthen his church. All men are invited to participate.
Central Christian Church offers has an exciting youth group! They meet throughout the school year on Sundays from 6:00 until 8:00 PM (occasionally, special activities will change meeting times). These youth meetings include a wide variety of activites from games to special trips to learning sessions to activities to help people in need.
Another highlight of the year is the annual summer mission trip. Over the years, these trips have gone to destinations ranging from Virginia to Mexico. During these trips, participants typically work on the homes of people who are in need doing various repairs and improvements. It also provides a time for those on the trip to develop a closer relationship with Jesus Christ, with one another and the people they are helping.
The Central Christian Church youth group is designed for those in grades 6-12.
