As a church that is inspired to serve, we do so within and outside of our walls, locally and around the world, through our personal dedication of time and service, as well through the use of our building.
Some of Central’s regular mission with the Downingtown community include:
– a monthly Community Luncheon open to the public
– Central Connection, one of our newest endeavors! In partnership with East Ward Elementary School and the Downingtown Area School District, we offer free children’s programming on scheduled early dismissal days.
– Tackling Food Insecurity with the Lord’s Pantry Food Bank, Honeybrook Food Pantry, The Chester County Food Bank, and the CROP Walk
– Rebuilding homes in our community with Habitat for Humanity and Good Works, and the Housing Partnership of Chester County
– Supporting those in need of care through the Prayer Shawl Ministry, Bridge of Hope, The Domestic Violence Center, Hearts and Hands, and more.
