Join Pastor Rick for PBS,  Wednesdays August 15, 22, & 29 at 6:00pm in HOOVER THEATRE LOUNGE.  Each night will focus on the places in Israel our “L’CHAIM HOLY LAND TOUR” will visit.  Stories and trivia about these places in the Holy Land where Jesus and the disciples stood and travelled.

…all are welcome, even if you’re not going on the trip.


Tickets for the 2018 ALLEY THEATRE GALA are available in the CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH OFFICE (Tues-Fri 9a-5p) or by calling THE ALLEY THEATRE Box Office Message Center at 765.643.0701.

This years GALA will feature a small plate buffet, catered by M&N CATERING, a silent auction, and entertainment from John & Dianna Huntoon (accompanied by Rick Vale) all in the HOOVER STUDIO THEATRE and LOUNGE September 21st at 7:00pm.

As with other years, tickets are limited, so get yours soon.

All proceeds from the GALA go directly to funding upcoming productions (sets, costumes, props) at THE ALLEY, so that all ticket money can be donated to the CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH General Fund…without needing to use those funds to pay for productions.


upcoming lessons and worship themes

“INDYKLEZ”, scheduled to be in our worship on Sunday, August 19th at 10:00am, is unable to come share in worship with us on that date and will be rescheduled for another Sunday Morning Worship Time.

HOWEVER, the ALL-CHURCH-PITCH-IN LUNCH scheduled for that same Sunday will happen following worship.  Please bring your favorite food: some for yourself and plenty to share.  Central will provide table service and drinks!

SUNDAYS - September 2nd & 9th

While Pastor Rick is away in the HOLY LAND, with Central’s “L’CHAIM” Tour, the pulpit will be filled (September 2nd & 9th) by REV. JIM ROGERS and REV. CAROLYN REED.

John Huntoon & Mike Meadows will be there to offer our worship music…and all will be back at Central for “FIRST SUNDAY”, September 16th at 10:00am!

``FIRST SUNDAY`` September 16th

Central Christian celebrates the beginning of the “Church Year” (September – August) with an Introductory Sunday called, “FIRST SUNDAY”.  This year, that will be Sunday, September 16th at 10:00am.  This is the first Sunday for our Chancel Choir to be robed up and leading in worship.  Following “First Sunday” many programs that have taken a hiatus during the summer months start back up again.

This year will be the first with our new Director of Music, and the beginning of Central Christian Church’s 160th Anniversary!

All are welcome to worship at 10:00am each Sunday!
