We believe that sharing our financial resources is one important way we live out our calling, as followers of Jesus, to be and share God's good news of unconditional love for all the world.
If you would like to make a regular weekly or occasional contribution, you may contribute either through the offering portion during the Sunday service or from your mobile device or desktop/laptop with our giving app, Givelify.
At Central Christian Church there are a variety of ways to financially support the mission of both this congregation and the larger church in the world.
The General Operating Budget keeps the lights and heat on, provides curriculum for youth, pays staff, purchases supplies for communion, music for worship and maintenance on the building. Much of what you see and experience on Sunday is supported primarily through the General Operating Budget. Central tithes 10% of all donations to the General Operating Budget to support the work of the larger church through Disciples Mission Fund. In addition, six special offerings each year support ministries of our denomination, including Week of Compassion (disaster relief and development), New Church Ministry, Reconciliation, higher education, and regional work.
The Building Fund is used to fund capital improvements to the building. Recent projects include the restoration of our bell tower and the addition of an elevator and ramps for handicap accessibility, and more recently, renovations of our Fellowship Hall and Community Room. Our current plan includes reducing our building mortgage debt, conducting a renovation project in the church parlor, and supporting an outreach project that will help alleviate hunger locally and globally.
