welcome to central

sundays at 10:30am // 3308 avenue O 1/2


you're welcome here.

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, straight, filthy rich, or dirt poor. You're welcome here if you're "just browsing," just woke up, or just got out of jail. We don't care if you're more religious than the Pope, more Methodist than Wesley, or haven't been in church since little Joey's baptism. We welcome soccer moms, surfers, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food-lovers, squids, and jarheads. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you're having problems, if you're down in the dumps, if you're thrilled to be alive, or in need of prayer. We welcome you if you had church shoved down your throat as a kid, if church was the place you felt most loved in the world, or if you don't like "organized religion." We've been there, too. We welcome those who are inked, pierced, or both. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleedings hearts, cynics... and you!

our vision

is to be a creative community where radical grace is both believed and practiced.

here's what we value:

community. 
We’re not a building. We’re people loving, encouraging, and relying on one another. But church does not exist for itself, so we face outward, serve passionately, and give irrationally to offer God’s love through service and compassion.

creativity. 
We serve the most creative being that's ever existed. We want to mirror that creativity in every aspect of our lives together, whether that be through the arts or through creative problem solving.

curiosity. 
We're convinced that a childlike faith means asking really good questions. Faith and doubt are not opposites, but partners in a divine dance. Poking and prodding around in mystery is holy work.

care for the whole person. 
We think that your spiritual life is your actual life. We want to care for each person holistically. Spirituality is not one aspect of your life, but the lens through which you view your entire life.

collaboration. 
We know we’re better together. We’re working together with individuals, other churches, non-profits, and organizations; each with our own part to play in God’s story for Galveston.
