Our world today is full of noise, busyness and distractions. We’re bombarded with messages telling us how to look, how to spend our time and money, how to think and who to be.
At Central Presbyterian Church we want to slow down and take time to be reminded of the sacred elements of life, to recognize that each of us is made in God’s image and to seek out our place in God’s story. We seek to establish sacred and contemplative patterns that allow us to recognize how God is present in our lives and how the Spirit is leading us.
