“In All We Are and Do,
Christ is Central at Central!”

Welcome to Central United Methodist Church, located in Asheboro, North Carolina. Our goal at CUMC is to Follow Jesus, Make Disciples and Transform the World! We are a body of believers moving forward along the path that Jesus has shown us, all at different paces, but all keeping Christ the central focus. There's a place for you here at Central!


There's a Place for You at Central...

Birth, baptism, confirmation, marriage, sickness, death and all the joys and sorrows in between - these are some of the events that frame our spiritual life as well as life here on this planet. Our congregation is a warm, friendly family that offers support, insight, rejoicing, sympathy, love and, as Jesus demonstrated, a relationship throughout all of these events. Take a moment to browse our website, then stop by for a visit and find out for yourself what makes Central such a special place. We look forward to seeing you and remember, there's a place for you at Central!


Central 101

Pastor Terry teaches a “Central 101” class at different times throughout the year. It is a 4 week class for persons interested in joining the church or finding our more about the church. Please call the church office (629-1425) to find out when the next class is scheduled.

steepleThe Return of our Navajo Mission team! Our team of 12 (aka our 12 Disciples; The Dirty Dozen) put their hands to the dirt doing some hard labor while on their mission trip in Shiprock, New Mexico, and returned safely Wednesday evening. Some of the work they did was to help winterize houses for the elderly and infirmed. As you’d imagine, they’ve come back with a myriad of experiences both shared and individual, special God moments and heartfelt connections with the people they served which added to the richness of their week. Thank you for your prayer cover!

This weekend 39 of our youth and adults will be away at Fort Caswell, Oak Island, NC for SpiritUs; the Youth Beach Retreat put on by our Conference. Please remember them in your prayers.

Pastor Terry posed this thought last week… If you’re wondering what an Acts 2 church looks like, just read the second chapter of Acts. And if you do, you will find that one of the things that characterized the early church was a commitment to pool their resources so there would be no need.

In case you weren’t aware – we began a new tradition of receiving a soup pot offering each time we share in communion. Those proceeds will go to our discretionary fund to assist families in our church experiencing financial hardship, which has already met several needs. Thank you for your generosity and support!

This Sunday Pastor Terry will share Part 2 of his sermon, "What Does Forgiveness Look Like?"

God continues to use our church (You – His body) to bring healing, transformation and love to a broken world. We can’t wait to see what God is going to do in the weeks to come! Keep praying! Keep Looking up!
