Catch the spark with Central!
A quick note of thanks and an update from your Central Stewardship Team (the folks responsible for raising the funds to make our ministries happen):
A snapshot of financial health
- Year-end donations make a huge difference for the 2023 budget year.
- Pledges are consistent with last year.
- Overall, Central Church appears financially stable.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to all those who gave a little (or a LOT) extra at year end 2023. Final numbers are not yet in, but things are looking far better than predicted, and that’s thanks to your generosity. Central is such a vital church and ministry hub in downtown Traverse City. Thank you for being the spark our ministries need to thrive!

Fill out your 2024 pledge card online! Join more than 200 households who have already together pledged $783,939 toward Central Church ministries in 2024. Pledges never amount to our full budget, but they are our best way to predict our budget (the money we have for ministry). Pledging can also help you to stick to your resolution to be generous in the new year.
“The one who sows a small number of seeds will also reap a small crop, and the one who sows a generous amount of seeds will also reap a generous crop. Everyone should give whatever they have decided in their heart. They shouldn’t give with hesitation or because of pressure. God loves a cheerful giver.” – 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
