Our Story

The Christian Family Centre, or The Centre, exists to serve Lenawee County and surrounding communities by being a world-class choice for one’s physical, social, and spiritual wellness with Jesus Christ being the center. The organization was developed by the Merillat family in the late 1980’s to provide a place where families could enjoy time making memories together in a safe and healthy environment. The vision that the Merillat family cast in 1988 still exists today -- and remains under their support and leadership. The Centre is a non-profit organization well-known in the region for fitness and wellness services, hosting events, catering, youth sports, and family-oriented activities -- all in a family-friendly environment. The Centre's most popular brands are Impact Sports, The Corner Park, Centre Cycling, and the Centre Cafe. The Centre is located on a 75-acre campus on the west side of Adrian, Michigan and shares facilities with Lenawee Christian School; both of which are fall under the leadership of the Lenawee Christian Ministries organization.

Great message sent by email from Managing Director Craig Morr! Stay safe everyone and continue to pray!
Do you have a day care center or do you offer a weekly camp ?
Are you guys doing fireworks this year?
BRING YOUR CANS FOR THE WAM (wish a mile) can drive! 8-11 am this morning in the parking lot near the track! All cans returned will be donated to raise money for granting wishes to children battling illness. Josephine Clark Weeden is trying to raise $10,000- enough to grant one wish!
Are you guys doing the mom/son laser tag event this year? Thank you!
Back in June, you stated that the track would open back up August 1st. It was open for a few days and has been locked back up since last Wednesday. Why can we not use the track to walk/run on??
Thank you so much for an EXCELLENT fire works display tonight. What a treat for our family!
No more lazer tag this Saturday?
Are we doing another Anybodies Triathlon this summer?
Just curious as to why the track is all locked up? My friend and I like to walk out there. Since it is 4:30am when we walk we feel safer on the track. I understand you don’t want people on the field, believe me I don’t want to go on the field because it is wet.
Summer is coming and we NEED, friendly dependable volunteers to work along side staff to help us provide a great customer experience for our members and guest. Please call or e-mail us at [email protected]
Will The Centre be open on Monday January 15th (Martin Luther King day)? If so will the indoor pool, open swim time be extended?Thanks 😊
