What Should I Expect

When you walk into Central Christian Church, you can expect…

A Friendly Welcome

Our greeters will welcome you as you come into the building. They are there to help you find your way around CCC and will point you in the right direction. They will offer you our weekly bulletin and help you feel right at home.

A Loving, Safe Place for Your Children

Our fully-screened Sprout’s Children’s Ministry volunteers are ready and eager to welcome your children and get the chance to teach them about Jesus. They will help you check in your children and answer any questions that you might have.

People Who Love the Lord

Our church is a family. We are young and old, big and small. Some will be dressed up because that is what they like to do. Others will be in jeans and Detroit Tigers gear. You might see an earring or even a tattoo. Come as you are – you will fit right in!

A Worship Band

We start our Sunday services each week by lifting up songs of praise that declare truths about God’s grace and faithfulness in our lives. Our musical worship style is lively, engaging and fun to be a part of. Week to week you can expect a mix of electric, acoustic, and bass guitars, piano, drums and vocalists. Through this modern praise and worship style, we do our best to incorporate both new and old songs in a way that glorifies God and helps others connect in a real and relevant way.

A Chance to Celebrate the Lord’s Supper

We celebrate communion every Sunday, as was practiced by the early church in the book of Acts. When followers of Jesus practice communion together, it is an act of unity (1 Corinthians 10:17). We take communion on a weekly basis to remind us of what Jesus accomplished through the cross, for a time of reflection, prayer and for unity.

A Relevant Message

Each week our Lead Minister, Rob Schwartz, does a great job of connecting Biblical truths to everyday life. The teaching is always based in scripture and pushes the listener to think and engage with Jesus.  Some weeks, you can also expect an intriguing message from our Associate Minister, Colin Sherfield.

An Invitation and a Baptism

At the end of each service, we invite anyone who would like to make a decision to be a committed Christ-follower to come forward during our last song. At CCC, part of that commitment is baptism. Following our understanding of Scripture, we practice baptism by immersion. Jesus modeled this form of baptism and commanded it (Matthew 3:13-17, Matthew 28:19), making baptism a symbolic act of obedience and faith. Baptism by immersion represents the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus symbolizing our old self dying, being buried in the water and raised as a new creation in Christ Jesus (Romans 6:3-4, 2 Corinthians 5:17).
