Supporting God’s Work through Central

We encourage you to continue your faithful support of Central’s ministry in these days. Offerings can be mailed to Central’s office (501 S. 4th St Springfield, IL 62701) or you can make an online offering here:

Graham Christmas Mart

Help support this annual ministry to Graham Elementary School. Every year the church provides donated and purchased gifts to help low-income families buy vouchers and choose Christmas gifts for their families. We always need donations to restock for the next year. If you can give, make your check payable to CBC with “Graham Christmas Mart” in the memo or go to this link to give online.

RMMO Offering

During November and December will will focus on the Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering. In this way we say thanks to those who have ministered to us in our weddings, baptisms, and funerals and during times of transition. Please make your check payable to Central Baptist Church with “RMMO” in the memo and mail it to the Church office at 501 S. 4th St, Springfield, 62701. Or go to this giving link. Thank you for supporting those who have supported us!

Instructions are on the Meal Train web site. Go to this link: or call the church office 217-523-3639 and Ann will sign you up.
