We believe that God has called us to make a difference. Every one of us has a part to play as we seek to build communities that love one another and bring the kingdom of God into every area of life.
Once again, Devoted gives us the opportunity to take up a central offering with the aim of extending the work we do together as ChristCentral. Whether you are coming to Devoted or not, you can still give!
