Join a Zoom Group

Being connected to other people is important to building community. It is often the first thing folks talk about when describing what is great about Central. To foster that spirit of community during physical distancing, several groups and Sunday school classes are meeting online.

If you want to join a group, please email or call the contact person for each group. If you are interested in starting a new Zoom group, contact Charles Conkin (charles@lexcentral.com)

Queer Conversations

First Thursday of the month - 6 p.m. (in-person) | 7 p.m. (virtual)

Jackson Campbell (Jecampbell22@transy.edu)

We are a group of Christians who have recognized the benefits and abuses we experienced from our various faith communities due to our diverse sexual orientations and identities.  We join together once a month to create a space for conversation where the best of our traditions can be called to account by living up to their more noble values for inclusion, welcome, compassion and acceptance. Our group is open to all committed to the vision of the full affirmation of members from diverse sexual orientations and identities, following in the way of Jesus Christ. We look forward to the ways we can help transform our faith traditions into communities where truly all are are welcomed, valued and empowered equally.
