Welcome to North Central!
We exist to make the name of Jesus Christ famous, one life at a time. Join us Sunday mornings at 10:00. Not sure what to expect? Below are some answers to some Frequently Asked Questions we’ve gotten from guests. Have a question we haven’t answered? Drop us an email and you’ll hear back from us within 24 hours. You can also preview what you’ll see and hear from the stage by watching one of our recent sermons. We look forward to meeting you!
What Should I Wear?
Will I Be Bored?
Come dressed however you want – God will be here no matter how you are dressed. We welcome jeans, t-shirts and flip-flops. You can even wear your SU sweatshirts! No ties or suits or fancy dresses are necessary – but you are more than welcome to “dress-up” if you like.
What About My Kids?
No way! Our music will certainly be exciting and inspiring. It is hard to imagine someone sleeping through it! Additionally, we believe that the word of God is absolutely relevant to living your life. We are committed to presenting the truth of the Bible in ways that relate to your life. While messages may be “theme oriented,” the primary focus is to dive deeply into a particular passage of scripture, allowing it to transform our thinking and actions. Through the appropriate use of multimedia we present God’s word in a spiritually stimulating, thought provoking, and action-inspiring way.
What if North Central isn't a fit for me or my family?
You have a choice. You are more than welcome to keep your kids by your side. However, your kids are a priority for this church, so we do provide a dynamic experience for your kids. We have a complete nursery and “classes” for toddlers and grade-school children up to grade 6 – all of this in a secure environment. During Sunday mornings, teens worship with the adults. We do have a teen-specific youth service on Wednesday nights.
What Does it Mean to be Gospel-Centered?
It happens. But rest assured we are not the only church on the block but a small part of a larger movement of God on the planet. It would be our absolute pleasure to help you find where you belong. With so many churches and so many personalities it would be difficult to list all the possibilities here. Feel free to contact us at any time for help in finding the church that’s right for you. Our goal is to invest in the overall movement of God and not just our tiny footprint in North Syracuse. Here’s how you can reach us: (315) 458-0896
At North Central, we talk a lot about being gospel-centered as a church, and we encourage gospel-centered living among our people. From time to time we get asked by our newcomers,“What exactly does that mean? What does it look like?”
