Welcome to Central Church of Christ, a non-denominational Christian community in Ada. We are delighted that you are visiting with us. You matter to us because you matter to God.
We are here for a reason, and everything we do is motivated by this sense of purpose: We exist to love God and people. You'll notice that our church family is involved in a broad diversity of ministries. While there is room at Central for every member to serve God in his own unique way, the following values under gird all we do.
We place a high priority on worshiping God privately and together. We desire that our assemblies and our very lives offer praise to Him who has redeemed us.
We believe it is essential that every Christian grow in his walk with the Lord. We offer a variety of teaching and serving experiences to help this vital maturing process.
We are committed to sharing with our immediate community and with the world what God has done for us through Jesus Christ. We want all to understand how much they matter to God.
We feel called to be salt and light in our world. We want to be both a conscience and a hospital for our community. For that reason many of our ministries address people’s felt needs such as family crises, physical illness, emotional problems, and the search for friendship and healthy peer relationships. First, and foremost, however, we seek to help people in their spiritual journey. We make no claim to be a perfect church, but we have learned one thing that we strive to communicate and embody: People matter to God! And so, people matter to us... people just like you!
Bud Ross - Senior Minister
This is when the entire family meets for worship and mutual encouragement. We are committed to conducting our services in a way that is clearly authorized in the Bible. Though our personal tastes and preferences may vary, only by obeying Scripture can we be sure that what we do is what God wants.
The Lord’s Supper: We observe the Lord’s Supper each Sunday because of the New Testament example and the fundamental nature of the Lord’s death and resurrection call us to do so. (Acts 20: 7; I Corinthians 11: 23-26). Visitors are welcome to participate with us in the observance of the Lord’s Supper.
The Offering: Every Sunday, members are invited to contribute financially to support the activities of the church family (I Corinthians 16: 1-2). If you care to contribute, that’s fine, but as our guest, it’s not necessary.
The Preaching: The sermon will last 20 to 30 minutes and is intended to present Bible teaching that will guide and strengthen family members through the week.
The Singing: Everyone is invited to sing. This privilege is not limited to a select group or choir. Since the New Testament never mentions instrumental accompaniment for the hymns sung by Christians, we follow that example. A cappella singing has a unique beauty and is truly praise from the heart of each participant.
The Prayers: Prayers will be led that express to God thoughts that concern the entire group. We make a special effort to pray for the personal needs, both physical and spiritual, of people.
The Announcements: In a family, sharing news is important. Items such as congregational events, personal items and prayer needs are shared with the church family.
Transportation to and from services can be arranged by calling the church office Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m

As family, time together is very important. Along with our weekly Bible studies and Sunday morning services, we have special times of being together throughout the year. These times include our annual congregational 4th of July Ice Cream Social & Fireworks Display, annual Easter Egg Hunt & Picnic, 5th Sunday Pot Luck Dinners & Fellowships, and Family Retreats, as well as many other times to interact.
We have many groups within our Family who meet together to minister to special segments of our congregation and community. Our Intercessory Prayer Ministry meets regularly to pray for private concerns of our Family; the Divorced/Bereaved Ministry serve those who have been affected by death and divorce; the We Care Ministry serve the shut-ins and elderly who have health problems that prevent them from coming to services; our Ladies’ Ministry serves all women of the congregation regardless of age or marital status, and our Men’s Ministry meets regularly over breakfast to discuss the day’s events and to support each other as they enter their work day.
