Welcome to the Central Lutheran Church website. (If you'd like to check out our Facebook page, click here.) We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. Central has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

We have taken delivery of the “new” van and its already in use. If you would like to have it pick you up for Central activities like Sunday services, midweek services, concerts and events, just call the office and let us know. And if you get stuck for a ride to a doctor appointment or eye exam, call us for that, too! And contrary to the picture, it’s not really as big as the sanctuary so call early if you want to be sure to get a spot! And don’t forget…it’s lift-equipped so wheelchairs and scooters are no problem! Help us spread the word to those in the congregation who may not have email that they can now get a ride to church if they want one!
NURSERY STAFF AVAILABLE FOR HOURLY CHILDCARE -- Our capable nursery staff are available for offsite childcare as your needs arise. Their contact information is available on the bulletin board at church. If you’ve enjoyed and appreciated their service during the service, why not give them a call when you want a night out?

Meet Pastor Dave
Our Pastor, David Kappus, has been an inspiration to our community and our congregation (just ask him, he'll tell ya!). Pastor Dave's sermons often include insightful stories that have real-life meaning, scriptural relevance, and even the occasional reference to Star Trek.
