What is Orange?

Do you feel that your child is ready to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion for their first time?
Here at Central we have been focusing on phase ministry. A phase is defined as a time frame in a kid’s life when you can leverage distinctive opportunities to influence their future. So what does that mean for you? No matter what phase your child is in we have key learning opportunities to engage and connect with them. But, it doesn’t happen by just bringing your son or daughter to church. Success of instilling faith in our kids comes from a partnership by the church community, the parents & their families, and the Small Group Leaders. Every phase is crucial! We are excited that you are taking this journey to learn more about how to prepare your child to receive the sacrament.
At Central, we are preparing for lots of options this fall keeping kids, parents and families safe while learning about Jesus.  Central continues to follow County Health Department recommendations, state guidelines, and the CFAUSD plans. This faith year we are transitioning into small groups of 5 to 8 students. Small groups can meet at church or a remote location, this year you decide where, when and how your group will meet. We are excited to gather in small groups where children can have fun, make connections, and grow in their faith. If you are interested in becoming a small group leader please let us know. We can't wait to kick off this year of learning the week of October 4th/7th.
So, Register now! 
Central Littles (Birth-Pre K)

We want to partner with you for the spiritual growth of your child.

We believe in an active, hands-on approach to learning with young children. So, you can plan on a lot of jumping, singing, dancing, and laughter in every experience.

It is our hope that your child will learn:
God MADE me.
God LOVES me.
Jesus wants to be my FRIEND forever.

In the first five years of life, a child forms impressions about themselves and the world.  In the PHASE, we want to embrace their physical needs and allow them to explore their world with wonder and imagination.  We want toddlers to experience:

God's love
And to meet God's family

We believe the Bible should never be boring, good leaders always care, and worship can be really fun! Through weekly large group and small group settings, Kids Of the King (K.O.K) is designed to guide children to put their faith in Jesus.

Their weekly small group leader is focused on making these three truths stick:

I need to make the WISE choice,
I can TRUST God no matter what
I should TREAT OTHERS the way I want to be treated.

Students in grades 6-8 are TRANSITioning from childhood to adulthood.  Transit is designed to help students navigate this journey and inspire them to develop a faith of their own.  Students have fun each week and spend time discovering what God has to say about their life, relationships, and future.  Students also get out into the communities to serve and have fun.  

Each student journeys with their own invested small group leader and group of peers.


InsideOUT is designed to help students build a personal faith that lasts.  Students create great memories and experience the timeless truth of God in a relevant way.  

We believe the greatest way we can partner with you is by providing your teenager with an invested small group leader and a group of peers running in a positive spiritual direction.  As students build a faith that lasts, InsideOut helps them experience the power of serving others within our church community, local community, and global community.
