Secure give mobile app
SecureGive Mobile app users (iPhone and Android) will be able to continue using the current version of the app for now with the exception of Android users who are not updated to OS 13 or newer. This is not a SecureGive requirement - it is a Google Play requirement. However, we ask you to encourage all of your mobile app donors to update their app for the best mobile experience.
Grant County Resue Mission/Life Change Program Graduation
Center Chpel is hosting the Grant County Resue Mission's LIfe Change Program Graduation. It will be held here at the church on Thursday, November 30th at 6:00 pm in the ministry center. You are invited to attend the graduation and help us celebrate the graduates on their accomplishments. The praise band will lead us in praise and worship as we celebrate those moving up in the program and those graduating.
The church is beginning a meal train ministry that helps to organize meals for those in need. If you are interested in being placed on the email list when there is a need, please write your name and email on the sheet in the church foyer or contact the office for more information. Once the church is aware of a need an email with a link to the meal train will be sent out to those interested in volunteering. It will show you the days food is needed, delivery instructions, and allow you to sign up. Being on the emial list doesn't obligate you to donate, it just helps the church be able to have as many volunteers be aware of the need and help provide a meal if and when they are able.
Church Directory Sign Up
Copies of the printed church directory are located on the table along with forms to fill out if you would like to be added to the directory. Only those who have filled out a form are able to access the directory as it is protected by having a confirmed email. You will also find an information sheet on how to access the directory on your phone through an app and online.
One Call Sign up
If you are not receiving the church updated, you can sign up by filling out a form in the foyer and leaving in the church box marked secretary. When you sign up you will receive prayer requests, food truck arrivals, and church announcements through either email, text, or phone call.
praise and worship night
Experience the Lord in mighty ways through your praise and worship. Join us on the 4th Tuesday of the month in the ministry center at 6:30 pm for praise and worship night.
