  • The Gifts Of Tongues & Interpretation

    Does the gift of tongues still happen today or has that gift ceased? What is the purpose of the gift of tongues? If someone speaks in tongues in a gathering of Christians should there be an interpreter? What if there isnt one? A word from Pastor Matt Shantz in light of our Pentecost Worship Night. read more

  • Elder's Update | May 2023

    We Elders met this past Tuesday for our monthly time together. It was an extra special evening given we started our time with enjoying a meal with all of the Central pastors. Julien shared some thoughts from 1 Corinthians with all of us. The Holy Spirit is at work and opening doors as a response to our prayer. Amazing to think what is in store that we dont yet see! read more

  • The Generational Loop Of Blame

    Anyone remember the song 'The Living Years' by Mike + The Mechanics? It's an 80's gem and it's one of those Cats in the Cradle type songs about a stilted relationship between father and son. The kind of song that randomly pops onto the radio and instantly dusts off old emotions, placing you square in your blubbery feelings while barrelling down a highway in a car filled with your entire family. A scenario that has definitely never happened to me, of course. read more

  • Elder's Update | Feb 2023

    The elders met again this past week. It was a privilege to pray together, both for those who came for prayer and also for all the prayer requests written in. There is lots to be thankful for these days. God is doing many exciting things amongst all of our campuses. However, we also recognize that many people in our church and our community are hurting, and so we spent some time in prayer for those things. read more

  • Elder's Update | Jan 2023

    The elders met this past week and gathered to lift up Central Community Church in prayer as we embark on a new year of ministry in the communities that God has placed us in. The elders prayed with those who came to receive prayer, prayed for our pastors and staff, and for our congregation across Central's five campuses. Our prayer is to see God continue to move in mighty ways in the lives of His people, for the gospel to transform lives, and for each and every one of us to grow ever closer to Him in the midst of our diverse circumstances. read more

  • Dear Christian, Do You Have An Output Ethic

    There is nothing more tasty in times like these than to be a person with a really big platform. Which is easy to come by. More and more, anyone anywhere can build a stage and find an audience. Not many of us will earn a physical gathering of listeners but all of us can easily muster a digital one. As Christians we all have important thoughts to share, and if we could draw a mass audience to hear them, why wouldn't we? It'd be a missed opportunity not to, right? read more
