Christ Central Family Life Ministry (FLM) exists to encourage, equip and strengthen marriages and families to bring honor and glory to our Father in heaven. We desire to strengthen, to challenge, to support, to mobilize and to evangelize families in the Bay Area. We believe in the life-transforming power of the Gospel as the only hope for renewing and restoring families.
CCPC Forum is a ministry that creates a platform to discuss, apply and connect the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our everyday lives. This ministry is open to post-college, pre-marriage individuals who all desire to glorify God in diverse contexts, vocations and callings in life.
Fellowship in Christ Berkeley (FiCB) is the campus ministry of Christ Central Presbyterian Church. As a local church, we believe that campus ministry plays an important role in the life and mission of Christ in the Bay Area. In FiCB, we are committed to teach, baptize and equip disciples of Jesus Christ through a Gospel centered fellowship within the 4+ years of college life.
Christ Central's youth ministry is unique in that it is a joint collaborative effort with our mother church (KCPC). Our goal is that CCPC's youth (grades 7-12) will come to grow in the grace of Christ and be full in the knowledge of him, and share in the holy communal life of the church in Christ.
The Children's Ministry provides worship and biblical instruction that is faithful and age-appropriate (K-6th grade). We exist to love, teach and inspire in order that they and their families will love God, lead like Christ, and confidently live the Christian faith.
Christ Central Nursery provides care for the youngest members of our family (babies through pre-K). We strive to reflect the love of God in a nurturing and safe environment centered around the gospel.
