While Central works to help meet needs in the Galesburg area we are also aware of pain and suffering experienced by people throughout the world through violence, oppression, war, famine and natural disasters.

Through special organizations such as Doctors Without Borders, Samaritan’s Purse and water.org, we work through our national association (NACCC) to respond to tragedies around the world.

Whether we help with needs in our local community or elsewhere in the world, we are called to serve as a faith community. To love God and show God’s love for others is what we mean by “compassionate service”.
