Central Neighbors was formed to provide members with opportunities to build community and receive and provide pastoral care within eight geographical "parishes" located throughout metro Atlanta. Each member becomes a member of a parish when he or she joins Central.
Typically, parishes come together for social gatherings, service opportunities, support when a new baby is born, when someone is ill, or someone dies. Annually, parishes gather in members' homes to mark Maundy Thursday by sharing a potluck meal and worship. Our deacons work closely with parish coordinators, particularly in response to pastoral concerns.
