We invite you to worship with us.

Oktoberfest Annual German Dinner

Central Church hosts its Annual Oktoberfest German Dinner on Friday, Sept. 24 from 4:30-7:00pm…but with a twist.  We didn’t want the pandemic to cancel this tradition once again this year (let’s face it, we really miss that German potato salad), so we’re having the dinner, but it’s being served as Drive-Thru Meals ONLY.  There will be no seating available inside in order to limit contact and exposure.  Enter the lower parking lot from the Washington St. side, proceed up the driveway to the gym door to make your purchase, and then exit via Ashley St.  There will be cones and attendants to help direct traffic.

The menu:
Grilled Sausage w/buns and Freda’s special sauce on the side
Our famous W.I.G.S-recipe German potato salad
Green BeansThose amazing fried apples we tried out last year are back againA limited choice of dessert: apple or cherry pie, or white, chocolate, or angel food cake (we wanted to offer dessert without having so many choices that it would slow down the line.  This seemed like the best compromise.) 

All of that for $12.  If you’ve got kids that would prefer something different, we’re offering a kid’s meal of hot dog, chips, and green beans or fried apples for $4. 

COVID kept us from having the German sausage dinner in March of 2020.  It kept us from our Oktoberfest meal last year…and then from our German meal again THIS March.  We haven’t made that German potato salad in two years… which means we haven’t gotten to EAT any of that German potato salad in two years.  So even though we’re going to have to do things a little differently to keep everyone safe, we are HAVING our Oktoberfest Annual German Dinner.

 We hope that you will drive thru and see us,

Join us for Worship on Sundays at 10:00 A.M.

The people of Central Church come together to commune with each other and to Commune with our Risen Savior.

We are now non-denominational, but we still hold fast to our Protestant, Lutheran, Evangelical & Reformed, and Congregational Christian roots and traditions, while being open to change and new opportunities.  We hope to see you at one of our worship services or one of our many functions!.
