 Dear Central United Methodist Family,

Since mid-March, we have been in unprecedented times due to the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus). With continued governmental  with restrictions and suspensions, along with our bishop’s guidance, we are suspending all church activities until June 14. Our church’s lay and ministerial leadership constantly monitors this situation and will determine our future steps. We pray that we will have our 9 AM and 11 AM worship services on Sunday, June 14, 2020 in our sanctuary. Until then, we invite you to watch our weekly broadcasts on Mediacom (Channel 81 [Analog] or Channel 82-17 [HD]), our YouTube Channel, and links on our Facebook page.

We are still doing ministry, thus we invite you to financially support these various ministries. You can give online (www.centralumc.net using the My Tithe menu to conduct your offering via PayPal) or give through mail (PO Box 428, Fitzgerald GA 31750).

You can still contact our church staff. However, I urge you NOT to come to the office, but call us (229.423.9381). You can reach our pastors and full-time staff members at this number by listening to the new prompts. We love you and want to minister to you without you or us taking any undue risks.

I believe we serve a God that is bigger than any virus! These precautions are not about us being afraid, but about using our God-given wisdom to take care of each other in this unusual time.

Thank you for understanding. It truly breaks my heart, but I do believe that this is the right decision at this time. God bless you all as we help each other overcome the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Your Servant In Christ,
Pastor Rich Wright, D.Min.

Welcome to Central United Methodist Church

201 W. Central Avenue

Fitzgerald, Georgia

We are a part of the United Methodist Church and embrace our history and theology that we are all chosen by  God; adopted by Him back into His family; our sin is forgiven by the act of Jesus Christ who is our Lord and savior. As such, we have a spiritual inheritance that began the moment we accepted what Jesus did for us and is realized through the gifts and graces which He gives to each of us uniquely; and we have been given the very Spirit of Christ to guide, direct, teach and comfort us. All of this is a direct result of God's grace; a free gift, nothing we do can earn it for us. Having such a rich spiritual life made available to us we are called to demonstrate it by how we live, in holiness of lifestyle and action, as God changes us from the inside out. That is why we are so eager to love, accept and serve this world we live in. Please join us in our worship of God our creator and celebrate His saving grace provided to us through His son, Jesus Christ.

Our regular schedule of worship is:


9:00 AM - Early Morning Worship (Chapel)

9:15 to 9:45 AM - Fellowship Breakfast

9:45 AM - Sunday School for all ages

11:00 AM - Morning Worship (Sanctuary)
