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.
Worship for Children
Kids Celebration – An interactive worship service for kids 1st-4th grade is offered at their own age level. Children attend the first half of the regular worship service with their parents and are then dismissed to Kids Celebration. A nursery is provided for all preschool ages.

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.
In the months of June and July, we will hear from Central Bearden staff members during our evening service. They will give their testimony, their “Story.” These “Testimonies” will include biographical and spiritual reflections and will also include a Scripture and/or a devotional thought that has impacted the speaker recently or changed the direction of their thinking or walk with God. The big question in this series is “Where does ‘my story’ fit into The Bigger Story of what God is doing?”
Families on Mission
Wednesdays, June 14 – July 19
5:45 pm – 6:45 pm, GYM
Parents with their children ages 3 years and up are encouraged to join us whenever your schedules permit to have a family hands on missions experience. Our time together is formulated to an hour for the kids and parents to participate in a mission project together. We will give a brief overview of what we are doing that evening but other than that it is an activity for families to do together. We hope to laugh, learn and serve by doing something for someone else. Our prayer is this missions service experience becomes a time where you will have the opportunity to serve alongside your children while you giggle, play, and have fun together.
Following Wednesday evening services, adults have the opportunity to attend a variety of discipleship classes (6:00-7:30 pm) that will help you better understand and experience God’s desire for your life.
