CENTRALcircles, the Parish element of our Hub and Parish ministry model, are beginning to take shape. We have four circles in the process of forming, with several more to come. 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  

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 contact either Donna Ferrey or Holly Cable.

    The purpose of the SaL Circle is to learn, sing, and lead others in the Longmont community in singing songs with texts regarding CENTRALongmont’s Purpose and Core Values.  The style of songs learned and discussed will be from all styles, with an emphasis on “secular” songs in the Folk, Blue Grass, Country, Blues, Pop, Rap, Classical and Spiritual genre.  Members will support each other as we discuss and debate the value of the above prior to presentation to the community. Members will determine when, where and how to present/produce Sing-a-Longs for the Longmont community.
