God’s purpose for Central is to talk about Jesus and use our gifts and talents to serve others.


We have some guiding principles which we use to help guide our work together for God’s kingdom. The first, and hopefully not surprising, is that we follow Jesus as Lord and Savior. Our focus is worship, proclaiming the Good News of Christ through word, sacrament, and song. And then we reach out, on our own and partnering with other organizations, to serve the downtown community and the larger world.



As Lutherans, we are called to let our light shine, not just at Christmas but all through the year. We do that in many and various ways.
