Mercy Ministries

Psalm 68: 5-6

Psalm 68:5-6 says that God is a "Father to the fatherless", a "Defender of widows,"
He "sets the lonely in families", and "leads forth the prisoners with singing."
We at Central strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus by reaching out to others.
We intentionally engage, bless, and serve those in need through giving our time and resources.
To this end, we partner with other organizations who are actively involved in our target areas.
You'll find the current list of our Mercy Ministry partners listed below.
