Central United Methodist Church is committed to continuing a long tradition of excellence and authenticity in traditional worship. Our music is led by the Chancel Choir, with organ, piano, handbells, and hymn singing in the Wesleyan and other protestant traditions. Tradition and liturgy are woven into the fabric of each worship experience. Throughout the year, we program occasions for special music, including soloists, guest choirs, and professional instrumental ensembles including the Tennessee Wind Symphony.

Watch our Traditional Worship service live every Sunday at 11:00am.
