Central Park Complex/UMC
During the year we offer a variety of Adult Christian Education opportunities that we invite you to participate in, from book studies of popular christian writers such as Adam Hamilton, to special Lenten group study events, to weekly Bible Study. The focus for faith-building Adult Christian Education is Biblical knowledge & understanding; scripture study & application to daily life. We discuss ethical issues we face in our lives: illness, death, cultural pressures, and we promote multi-cultural awareness. For information on current classes and events, please visit see the Christian ED Newsletter and visit CentralParkComplex.com
A.C.E. at Central Park includes fellowship of informal discussions with topics relevant to today, building relationships that are valued. For the traditionalists we have structured classes, with faith & life application; and we also have eye-opening series where you can see your teacher as co-learner. Most importantly, we promote social action: although your faith is private; you should view church as a launching place for both outreach & personal transformation.
Young People of Faith (7th - 12th grade) :: This contemporary program is based on Biblical study and living. Each Sunday, teachers will be leading them on a variety of topics using various approaches & curriculum. They'll address not only issues going on in their immediate surroundings (school, home, community) but broader issues as well.
Concepts include: "How do we take our faith and apply it to everyday life?" and "How do we protect ourselves while still being compassionate?"
Children of Faith (K - 6th grade) :: Each Sunday the class of Kindergarten - 6th graders heads to their faith formation group, right after the Children's Message during the 1030am Central Park UMC worship service. We incorporate a variety of learning methods to engage children in Bible stories, characters and main themes. We employ musical activities, crafts, videos, and games as part of our curriculum. Snacks included.
This colorful program is engaging and theologically grounded, giving them the tools to explore the Bible in fun & age-appropriate ways. For further questions please contact Dona Bronkie, Marilyn Standard or Judy Toone.
Infants and Toddlers (Birth - Kindergarten) :: Loving, consistent child care is available for infants & toddlers in the Central Park UMC nursery on floor one of the complex, near the main sanctuary, from 10:15 - 12:30 each Sunday. This allows adults not only relaxed time in worship service, but to enjoy fellowship and coffee following service.
Parents or guardians can drop off their children before the service and pick them up at the conclusion of the service. If you need directions, an usher will be happy to help you. Please print & fill out the Youth Permission form for all young people.
