Trips/Events

Central provides a number of mission trips and events throughout the year. The following is a list of ongoing mission and community service projects we participate in; we would love to have you partner with us as we love God and serve our neighbors in need. Central is always looking for ways to serve our community and the world; as a result, other mission events and opportunities are made available throughout the year—these are just a few of the staples.

 



Habitat for Humanity - Central has included in its Strategic Plan that we will build a house each year. We have completed our 9th house for local families and also a house in Mississippi for a victim of Hurricane Katrina. There are a number a ways folks can get involved; even if you aren’t able to participate in the build team.

Central’s Backpack Ministry is a weekly project that provides healthy and wholesome food and snacks for elementary school children on the school lunch program at Stonewall Jackson Elementary in Bristol.

 
Snack bags are prepared every Thursday morning and we are always looking for new folks to help pick up supplies, prepare the bags and deliver them to the school.
