Welcome!
Central Lutheran Church is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The ELCA is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States, with more than 3.95 million members in nearly 9,600 congregations across the 50 states and in the Caribbean region. Known as the church of "God's work. Our hands," the ELCA emphasizes the saving grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ, unity among Christians and service in the world. The ELCA's roots are in the writings of the German church reformer, Martin Luther..

Beginning in 1890, Central has a rich heritage of being a traditional, and confessional congregation with an emphasis on engaging the future with boldness.

Kid's Central Preschool started  classes in fall of 2009 and continues to offer this ministry with Erin Rush as lead teacher.

The best way to get to know us is come and join us for worship.  All are welcome at the Lord's Table.  God knows your name - this is a good place to discover, learn and grow in faith.
