Congregational Care Missions
Perhaps you are ready to take your faith to the next level, by building your Scriptural knowledge, applying Christian understanding to life, or learning new Spiritual Practices. If so then we have multiple programs to help you on your path.
Our Stephen Ministry is made up of caring individuals who have each completed a minimum of 50 hours of training in listening and helping others determine solutions to problems. Stephen Ministers are assigned by same gender to those who are referred or are self-referrals to this program. Confidentiality is paramount. Stephen Ministers do not acknowledge their Care Receivers or their situations to others, but Care Receivers are free to speak out, if they wish.
Could you or someone you know benefit from a Stephen Minister’s help through a difficult time? If so, contact Judy Reed (336-416-7218), Phil Ashley (336-766-0196), or Rev. Craig Ford (ext. 1353). Trained and caring help is available through Centenary’s Stephen Ministry.
Shining Light on Mental Health
In 2015, a group of interested Centenary members came together and began to have conversations about Mental Health, and ways to bring education, comfort, and support, not only to our church members, but to our community at large. Thus, a new ministry under the congregational care committee was started; Shining Light on Mental Health.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Whether you love to knit or want to learn, if you enjoy fellowship, please join the group in the Parlor on the first Monday of each month from
10 - 11am where shawls as well as other handwork are created. These items are created to bring the Holy Spirit to others in times of joy or sadness. This ministry is a great way to make new friends. For more information, contact Dianne Moore.
DAYBreak Respite Care
DAYBreak Respite Care provides older adults who have some degree of memory impairment the opportunity to engage in social, spiritual, and recreational activities while giving the caregiver a break from the full-time care of their loved one. These opportunities are presented in a setting which supports new friendships, encourages the development and maintenance of new skills and abilities, and offers ways to contribute to the group and the broader community.
DAYBreak is open to the community and if you are interested in enrolling a participant or in volunteering to help with this rewarding ministry please contact
Debbie Pilson, Director of DAYBreak Respite Care.
