As a More Light congregation, we seek to follow the risen Christ and make the Church a true community of hospitality. The mission of More Light Presbyterians is to work for the full participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people of faith in the life, ministry and witness of the Presbyterian church (USA).

Central Church has committed itself to peacemaking. In fulfilling this commitment, we will do peacemaking through such things as worship, prayer and Bible study, community ministries, study and response to global issues, and receiving the Peacemaking Offering.

We Are Differently-Abled
In our congregation, people with disabilities are valued as individuals, having been created in the image of God. Our church endeavors to remove barriers of architecture, communications and attitude that exclude people who are differently-abled from full and active participation. Click here to learn more.
Language and Worship
At Central, we strive to balance traditional images of God with new images that challenge us to recognize God’s many faces. The male-centered language the church has historically used links us to a rich heritage; nevertheless, it is incomplete and fails to acknowledge that we are all – male and female – created in God’s image. While it is sometimes impossible to use totally inclusive language, our worship leaders attempt to use a variety of images and to use language that is inclusive for God and for humankind.
