Relationships Matter Most

A Letter from Pastor Jon Henninger

At Central Christian Church, we love God and love people and that includes you!  At every age, we believe relationships matter most because they lead us to THE relationship that matters most...knowing Jesus! From Kid Depot to Senior Adult Bible Study, Central is a high-energy, highly relational, life-filled community with a place for everyone to connect.
God is truly moving in Southern Illinois. He is doing some incredible things in and through His church here. Whether you chose to worship in person, online, or on TV,  Sarah and I would love for you and your family to be part of the Central family! If you have any questions about what we believe or who we are, check out the rest of this website or call/text us at 618.242.4185.  
Hope to see you soon!

Recent Worship Experience 


Nearly 10,000 people each week are connecting with us from a distance on WSIL TV. At Central we say relationships matter – and they matter a lot, so we want to create an opportunity to meet face to face, to worship in person. The next Connection Night is happening in Paducah more WSIL cities to follow. You'll also have an opportunity to make the decision to accept Jesus and be baptized.
