Welcome!

Central Church's CongregationWe seek to worship God faithfully and to reach out into God’s world with the love of Christ.

Worship is the weekly event around which all of our other ministries exist and is central to all that we do at Central United Methodist Church.

Communion is an integral part of our worship, and it is offered on the second Sunday of each month.  Communion is open to all.

jesus-our-hopeYou are invited to join with the folks of Central Church during the upcoming Lenten season in a short daily devotional authored by our own Pastor Jan.

Beginning on Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017 and running through Easter Monday, on April 17, our “Food for Thought” page will feature daily Scripture readings and a brief meditation to help align you to Lent and the coming Easter.

Please join us as we embark on this journey of Lenten reflection!

Local Outreach

We thank God for the opportunity to provide free warm and nutritious food for body and soul to many people in the City of Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, as we work to cultivate a season of peace and joy for the people God has placed in our lives.

“Come to me all you who are weak and burdened and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

America is a wonderfully blessed country.  We have enough food and opportunity to go around.  But some miss out and go hungry.  20% of children in Pennsylvania do not know where their next meal will come from.  Food security is a problem for many in our community.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Beaver County is among the poorest counties in western Pennsylvania.  People come to Central Church who haven’t eaten for days.  Some have been out of work for years and don’t expect to find work anytime soon.  They have no money.  They’ve run out of benefits.  They feel that life will only get worse.  They are hungry and need someone to care.

Central Church provided over 10,000 free, nutritious meals to our community in 2013.  In 2014, that number increased to 11,500, and the numbers of the hungry coming to us continue to increase as we move through 2017, all through the generosity of many small givers and an active congregation of less than 25 dedicated souls.  (Please click on the “Donate” button in the right column of this page if you would like to support this critically-needed outreach ministry.)

Every meal that we serve is hot, nutritious, and wholesome.  A warm welcome and a promise from God go a long way to lift a heavy heart.  When someone knows how much God cares, they don’t feel lonely and powerless anymore.

Please join us to care for those in hard times.  Your gifts meet desperate needs for food, and you pave the way for hurting people to be blessed.

This is our prayer for everyone who walks through our door – providing hope for new life.
