Central Congregational church - DallasWe Are Central
About Our Church
Central UCC is an open and affirming family of faith. Our church family spans all ages, sexual orientations, gender identities, races, political affiliations and faith backgrounds. Are you new to the DFW area? Are you new to faith or looking for a fresh start? Do you want a safe space where your children are taught love and acceptance? Are you a member of the LGBTQ community or love someone who is? Come join us as we learn together how to love God, love one another and love our neighbors.
What we do
Our Services and Ministries
Central welcomes you to join us for worship of God at 11:00 am each Sunday morning, whoever you are and wherever you are on this journey of life, love and faith that we all share. Come explore with us what it means to live in a community which endeavors to follow the path of Jesus.
Children and Youth Ministries
Creative expression in words, crafts and play are encouraged as our children and youth explore the life of faith in a safe and nurturing environment. God’s love, for each and every child, is a central emphasis, supported by a caring faith community who welcome the children’s periodic participation in worship services.
Ministry and Outreach
Central seeks to follow Jesus’ call to love God and to love our neighbor as ourselves. Our mission is to engage in community service to our neighbor and in financial support of ecumenical partners who can reach out in ways that we cannot on our own.
We value the role of diverse music in worship. A large percentage of our congregation are enthusiastic participants in our music ministry. If you sing, ring handbells, or play an instrument, there is a place for you.
What Drives Us
- Celebrating the Gospel through community worship
- Offering a safe, loving, nurturing environment where all people may explore, develop, and enrich their spiritual lives and faith
- Extending our ministry to the community and the world through participation in social justice and mission activities
- Providing opportunities for spiritual, social, and religious education in order to prepare members to better fulfill our Christian calling
