CENTRALcircles

CENTRALcircles are open to everyone. As our sign out front says:


Whoever you are, wherever you are in your faith journey, 

we’ll come alongside you…to worship, to learn, to join hands in working in the community.   

You are welcome here.

You will find more information about CENTRALcircles in Fellowship Hall where you can pick up a CENTRALcircles Handbook or click here to download a handbook.  If you are interested in joining a CENTRALcircle you can email the contact person or contact Donna Ferrey.  If you would like to start a CENTRALcircle, please contact Donna Ferrey

    Join this new CENTRALcircle and use your love of golf to mentor young people at Columbine Elementary School using the lessons golf provides. This group will meet regularly on and off the golf course for worship, fellowship, education, pastoral care, and mission.


CENTRALcircles, the Parish element of our Hub and Parish ministry model, are beginning to take shape.  While no two circles will be exactly alike or function in precisely the same way, each circle will have the same five components:

  • fellowship  
  • worship  
  • education  
  • mission  
  • pastoral care
