Welcome to Central United Methodist Church!
Central United Methodist Church is a vibrant, Christ-centered, family-friendly worshiping community. Sunday sermons engage the Bible through the lenses of tradition, reason, and experience-all under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, so that we may gain wisdom and insight for representing Christ in our day-to-day living. Our congregation travels from all corners of metropolitan Phoenix to experience a variety of worship styles, one of which is sure to meet YOUR spiritual needs. We will be honored by your visit to worship with us this Sunday at Central!
