Concerts for a Cause


Central Christian Church presents a variety of concerts and recitals several times a year. Our Concerts are generally at 2:00 pm on Sunday afternoons. This congregation strongly supports the arts and believes that praising God through music is a gift to be shared with a wider community.

The concerts are free of charge but donations are accepted. Fifty percent of any donations received are designated to local causes. Previous concerts have featured members of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and faculty members from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.

The series is coordinated by R. Kent Cook ( Questions can be answered by Kent by emailing our office (, or by calling (317) 635-6397.

Threshold Singers

The Threshold Singers of Indianapolis belong to a growing international community of a capella choirs that bring comfort and peace to the bedsides of the dying. Central Christian Church is pleased to sponsor this choir.

Threshold Singers are specially trained before qualifying for bedside work with the group. This group has been partnering with Seasons Hospice since mid-2013; and has begun regular visits to the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home, which houses patients with limited financial resources.  Also on the horizon is a partnership with St. Vincent Hospice.
