Sunday Sunday School Opportunities

Christian Ambassadors

The Christian Ambassadors is a Sunday School class for developmentally challenged adults. The lesson plans are designed to be appropriate for a variety of skill levels, i.e. readers and nonreaders. The classes are located in a room that is easily accessible and are staffed by experienced and loving teachers.

Most class participants live at the Lura Turner Homes, a nonprofit organization. The founder, Lura Turner, was a long time member of Central Church. We have had the honor of this special relationship for many years. To visit their web site click on
