The Weekender

The Weekender is your on-ramp to connection and meaningful community at Center. You’ll learn about:

1) Our mission and values as a church

2) Getting connected to a Missional Community

3) Possible serving opportunities

4) What it looks like to become a Covenant Member

The Weekender consists of a Friday evening session, Saturday morning session, and a “serving teams tour” Sunday where you’ll see our volunteers in action!

Our next Weekender is May 6-7!
