Music at Central

Music has always been an important part of interpreting God's Word at Central.  The original Moeller organ, installed in 1917, was replaced by a Wicks pipe organ in the 1980s.  It features a solid state console with 1,234 pipes. Worship at Central continues to include an adult choir, as well as other vocal and instrumental offerings.​
