There are many opinions on when and how people could or should resume in-person gatherings, including for faith community practices like worship, study, fellowship and service. The medical and scientific experts overwhelmingly recommend extreme caution when gathering, the use of masks and social distancing (no exceptions). AND, sadly, NO PUBLIC SINGING! In some areas, churches that have opened for worship indoors have experienced outbreaks among their people, including serious illness and sometimes death. We really are eager to see each other, but that seems to high a price to pay.
So, for now, the Elders of Central have agreed that we are still in "wait and see" mode. We will watch as others "experiment" with gathering. We will observe what seems to be safest for all concerned. We will continue to listen to the medical and scientific community on what they deem safest. We will regularly check with other faith leaders to hear what they are learning. What will worship look like when we do gather? What will we be able to do safely, and what will be unwise? We really don't know yet.
We want to hear from you. How is at home / online worship going for you? Are you managing the technology ok? Are you able to hear and understand the music and speaking? Are you finding what you need to make your space for worship sacred in this time?Are you "chompin' at the bit" to get back, or are you ultra-cautious and planning to wait till there's a vaccine? Contact us and let us know.
IN THE MEANTIME... Please join us online for Bible Study at 9:30am on Zoom and Worship at 11am on Zoom and Facebook. Visit our home page for the latest links and updates. You can also contact us to sign up for a weekly small group gathering for fellowship, support, and general "check in".
The leaders of Central Christian Church are pleased to announce a new campaign to assist those financially affected by the strains of quarantine and job loss during the current phase of COVID-19.
The Central Christian Church COVID-19 Spring 2020 Financial Relief Fund is hoping to raise $4,000 by April 15, so that all checks can be awarded before April 30th, 2020. We ask each of you to participate, either by donating to the fund online, or sending a check to the church, by nominating someone you feel may need support, or by applying for support yourself. Every award granted will allow an individual or a family much needed relief during this time of global economic strain.
The $250 grant will be awarded to individuals who are nominated and or apply, by filling out the form located here, or by requesting an interview. To be eligible for the first round of awards, you must submit your application before midnight on April 8, 2020. These awards will be granted April 15th. To be eligible for the second round of awards, you must submit your application before midnight on April 15th, 2020. These awards will be granted April 30th. Award winners of the first round are not eligible to apply for the second round of awards.
To be eligible to receive an award, you must demonstrate financial need based on loss of income as a result of illness associated with COVID-19 diagnosis.

We want to be responsive to your spiritual and other needs during this time. AND we want to be responsible regarding the current and future health risks.
Therefore, all church gatherings are canceled / postponed until further notice. Worship Services, Sunday School Classes, Bible Studies, Meetings, and other activities will either not be held, or offered remotely. You can see more about that below.
Central Westside has taken additional steps to sanitize and disinfect common surfaces, bathrooms, doors, handles, yoga rooms, and props. Some private businesses operating out of our coworking space may choose to be on campus during business hours, but group gatherings of more than 10 are not allowed at this time. 12Step programs are asked to follow their regional guidelines for group safety.
Your needs matter to us. We will heighten our contact via phone, email, text and even USPS. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
