We can’t wait to celebrate Easter at Central with you and your family. Every year, we pull out all the stops in all of our worship experiences to lift up our Jesus, who conquered death on a Sunday morning over 2,000 years ago. If it’s been a long time since you’ve been to church, this is the perfect time to give it another try. Come ready to be surprised. Come with the expectation of a high-energy, Holy Spirit experience. Come with an open heart, because we believe that Jesus himself just might give you a deeply personal and profound encounter.
Join us this Easter and let the resurrected Jesus bring your brokenness back to life.
Sunday, April 2 at 5:30 p.m. // Pontiac Convention Center // Clear your schedule! All volunteers will want to be here for the first SNL! We’ll start with worship and a short teaching that will help us all in our ministry roles. Then we’ll break into groups and brainstorm with you about what’s working in our church, what’s broken, and what’s missing. Finally, we’ll spend some time in our ministry teams and talk through issues specific to where we volunteer. Child care will be available up through 5th grade, so mark your calendar!
We are going to have a day to serve our neighbors in Janesville, and we want you to join us! We’ll meet at Fox Hills at 9 a.m. on April 22 and go out to do some work. We are asking for suggestions of people whom we can serve that day. It could be yard work or cleaning windows or whatever is needed. Send suggestions, with a name, address, and phone number if possible, to firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill out the form by clicking here.
Now that our Fox Hills location is being used most nights of the week, we’re looking to build a small team of people who are willing to take turns cleaning it once a week. If you’re interested, email email@example.com or call the church at 608.371.9731.
Wednesdays from 6 p.m.-8 p.m // Grades 6-12 // Fox Hills location (4450 Milton Ave.) // There will be time to hang out, play ridiculous games, and talk about God and all things spiritual. If you have any questions, call the church at 608.371.9731.
We offer an “after school” mid-week program, on Wednesdays, for our K-5th grade students. The Fox Hills doors will open at 3:15 p.m., with hang-out and snacks until 3:45 p.m., followed by a 65 minute program for the kids to learn Biblical principles in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. Pick-up time will be 5 p.m. If you are interested in helping these ministries out on any level contact Kellen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thursday nights from 6:30-8:00 p.m. // Fox Hills // Join Pastor Erik as we dig into Scripture and grow together. If interested in attending, even occasionally, please contact Erik at email@example.com. We would like to determine whether or not we need to work out childcare options.
Help us help new people feel comfortable at church. Our First Impressions team helps everybody coming in to church have a great experience.

Join our team as we breathe new life into one of the most important ministries that we have. Contact Ami at 608.289.6715 to get involved.
If you have a heart for hurting people and are willing to pray with them during the services, we would love to have you as part of the prayer team. Contact Jane Loomis if you’re interested at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What happens in Kidzworks is a top priority here at Central in Janesville, and we would love it if you’d join the team.

Breaking Free is a ministry where we can find grace and forgiveness for our hurts, habits and hang-ups. It is not just about alcohol and drug addictions; it’s about overcoming any struggle you might be facing.

The time will begin with pizza at 6:30 p.m. with the regular meeting beginning at 7 p.m. and lasting for approximately one hour.
