PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
Wednesday • Noon • Sanctuary • Reservation Required • October 28
We are a people of patterns and rituals, and we long for ways and opportunities to make meaning in our lives. We long to inhabit the sacred spaces and sanctuaries that help us give shape to our lives, to understand our place in God's world. In that spirit, and during this wilderness season of waiting, we are eager to offer you an alternative way of worshipping together. Each Wednesday at Noon, we will gather for a 30-minute worship experience of prayer and contemplation.

Samaritan Ministries is one of our local homeless shelters and was founded in part by Centenary members. In addition to its men’s shelter, Samaritan offers a soup kitchen and special programs for recovering substance abusers and the mentally ill. Centenary members support Samaritan in many ways, but as a church, we are committed to sending 6 overnight volunteers to staff the shelter and extend hospitality to its residents on the 2nd Friday of each month. To learn more, contact Tom Lawson, or click here to get details and sign up to serve.
