Worship is so much more than a Sunday or Wednesday service. Worship is our response, both personal and corporate, to God for who He is, and what He has done; expressed in and by the things we say and the way we live. We worship God through our service, through our giving, and through our lifestyle.
Sunday Mornings at Central
8:45 Traditional Worship /// 9:55 Bible Study /// 11:05 Contemporary Worship
Genuine worship stirs our hearts, stimulates our minds, and motivates our feet for Christian living. The Worship Services at Central Bearden are focused on God – The Lord God Almighty, Master and Creator of all the universe. It is our desire to honor, magnify, and lift up the precious name of Jesus through the informative preaching of God’s Word along with dynamic worship music.
A variety of creative expressions are employed to lead believers in meaningful, intimate worship with their Lord as we seek to impact others with the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ. These expressions include contemporary choruses, praise music, ancient hymns, psalms and traditional gospel songs. Choirs, orchestra, guitars, bells, brass, pipe organ, piano and keyboards are used in a variety of creative ways. Soloists, duets, quartets and ensembles are featured at times to add to the wonderful voices of the congregation. Dramatic presentations, poetry, art and visual media are added elements of our worship that bring further engagement of all members present no matter the age.
This is what Sunday mornings are like at Central Baptist Bearden. We invite you and your family to join us for a fresh style of blended worship and praise.

Wednesday Evening Services are usually held 5:45-6:30 pm around tables in the Fellowship Hall. It is a time of prayer, music, mission reports, and bible study. It is usually led by one of the ministers of the church. It is a great time of fellowship and sharing in a very informal setting. From time to time, special Wednesday evening services are held in the worship sanctuary. Nursery care and music and mission education classes for children are also available (5:40-7:30 pm) so there is something for everyone. For students there is a weekly Journey Worship service in the Journey Room from 6:00 – 7:00 pm.
During the months of October and November, we will explore the Protestant Reformation! With this being the 500th Anniversary, we will dive into history to see what happened to help lead up to and the need for a reformation of the church to occur. A different character in historical dress will be revealed each Wednesday night! They will provide some insight into their period in the history of Christianity.
