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.

Pastor Kappus is reading a devotional this Lent called “40 Days to the Cross: Reflections from Great Thinkers.” The great thinkers mentioned include early church fathers, medieval thinkers and modern era pastors.
Pastor says, "As you’ve probably surmised by now, I’m more a “doer” than a “thinker” so this is helpful to me! I will be using this space in my weekly updates during Lent to share what I consider to be the best of the week with you.
Here we go…" click here.

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.
