Church Family Pictures Are you and your family missing?

We are in the process of updating pictures of our church family into a directory and also for bulletin boards in the main hallway. Photo shoot sessions have been offered at church. Some have sent in digital pictures.

We are willing to accept any digital picture of your family for our Church Family Directory ( vacation, family shots, etc.)
Just email it to office@cccdan.org.

Check the bulletin board in the main hallway. We want to get this  completed before our new pastor arrives!
Are you and your family missing?


praise shareCome to church early starting August 6, 2017  for a praise and worship small group in the parlor!  The group will meet at 9:00 am approximately every other Sunday.

The experience is meant to be fun and personal.  Attendees that morning will share contemporary Christian songs that are meaningful to them.   We’ll sing and discuss the songs briefly to explore their message and impact on our Christian identity. The group is open to anyone who’d like to participate regardless of age.   When you see a child singing praises to our Lord you know you’re doing something right. The hope is to build Christ centered relationships within and between families through fun and through opening ourselves up in an honest way to one another.


Worship Series

Outside people make all sorts of postulations about who they deem Jesus to be.  However, we who stake our lives to Jesus do well to understand the deep and full identity of Jesus.  For this reason, we look to scripture and ask, “Who does Jesus claim to be?”  During this series of sermons, we will plumb the depths of the “I am” statements of Jesus.

Moving Screening

THE PHOENIX: HOPE IS RISING at Central, August 6th at 5:30 P.M.

This is an award winning documentary by Phil Gioja and Isaac Musgrave that tells the moving story of the ministries of CU at Home. Many of you know Melany Jackson, who is the Executive Director of CU at Home. She worked at Central for a brief time in 2004, and she has spoken to us on Sunday a few times. This documentary tells the compelling story of how The Phoenix came to be. The Phoenix is a safe place, a drop-in day center, for the homeless: our friends without addresses. It is a place of relationship for a part of society that is vulnerable. It also tells the story of the other ministries of CU at Home: Street Outreach, Transportation Ministry, Transitional Supportive Housing, Education and Advocacy. Please come, bring your friends, and learn something new about this topic. The Dwelling Pace of Vermilion County, is largely modeled on CU at Home.



July newsletterWinning the Battle Within

Why is everything in life so hard? Why does doing the right thing often feel like a battle? In this series, Pastor Rick shares insights from God’s Word about the unseen spiritual forces working against us; the invisible war between good and evil. This series will help you win the battle within.

Series will start September 10.

Locations and times to be announced soon

Food Pantry Sunday

During these trying difficult times, there are many people who are dependent on local food pantries for assistance. Our church has supported the Danville Township Food Pantry for many years as a way of reaching out to those in need. While you are welcome to bring donations for the food pantry at any time, the last Sunday of each month is designated here at Central as Food Pantry Sunday. We invite you to bring non-perishable, prepackaged items and place them in the containers in front of the church office. This month’s Food Pantry Sunday will be August 27. Please help us touch the lives of people in our community.

What is the Dwelling Place of Vermilion County?

The Dwelling Place of Vermilion County would like to thank Central Christian for allowing us to meet at the church until we are off the ground and have a place to call home. Like CU at Home, The Dwelling Place is a Christian faith based non-profit (we are working on that now) organization with the primary mission of developing a drop-in day center for our friends without addresses in Danville, This will not be at Central Christian Church. The Dwelling Place of Vermilion County is not an outreach of Central Christian Church. We do need your prayers! If you have questions or wish to help in this endeavor, please see Patsy Jones.
