Marriage Study: Love to Stay
In this book, Adam Hamilton explores how, with God’s help, we can make love last. Drawing upon a survey of thousands of couples and singles, interviews with relationship and marriage therapists, the latest research in the field, and wisdom from the Bible, Hamilton looks at what it takes to create and sustain healthy, meaningful romantic relationships across the course of a lifetime.

A Disciple's Path
When you become part of a United Methodist Church, you promise to faithfully participate with your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. Central wants you to know how to fulfill this promise well.
Life in Christ is an exciting, unpredictable, on-going journey. It’s a journey that is taken alongside others on the path of faith. Some of those are more seasoned travelers; others are just getting started. All are journeying with you as members of the family of God. Central is a collection of some of those family members; the United Methodist Church is a larger collection of the Christian family. A Disciple’s Path is a short study to help us on our journey of faith and to grow our Christian friendships. We’ll have a week dedicated to each of the following: The United Methodist Church, prayer and scripture meditation, worship and small group community, financial generosity, spiritual gifts and gifts-based service, and invitational evangelism.
