MISSIONS ADVENT CALENDAR

Hello Centenary Family! Here is a link that will take you to our CUMC Missions Advent Calendar. From December 1 - December 24 I invite you and your family to click the box of that date and pray for the mission partner listed. I asked each of our 24 mission partners to share their prayer requests and what they hoped for most this season so that we could be in prayer with and for them. Please join me in this advent journey!

ANGEL TREE

Thank you for your generosity in supporting Angel Tree this year! All of our angels have been adopted or sponsored. Angel gifts should be dropped off by Thursday, Dec 2. Contact Jeanette Juran with questions (jjuran@centenary-ws.org/ext. 1332).

CHILDREN'S MUSIC

Join us on a NEW NIGHT for an enriched and expanded Children’s Music & Arts Night as we seek to cultivate and nurture a love of music and art, learning skills that will equip children for a life-long love of worship and praise. Classes are offered in two blocks. Block 1 runs from 5 - 5:45 pm. Block 2 runs from 5:50 - 6:30 pm. Questions? Contact Jonathan Emmons (336.724.6311 ext. 1339). You can register below.

LIVING ADVENT

In Person • Wednesdays • December 1-22 • Noon
Zoom • Tuesdays • November 30 - December 21 • 6:30pm

All are invited to join Rev. Bret Cogan and Rev. Susannah Pittman as they co-facilitate a "Living Advent" study. Each week, we will explore a Scripture passage that is integral to the Advent narrative as well as a spiritual practice that will help us experience the Advent season meaningfully. This study will be offered in-person on Wednesdays and via Zoom on Tuesday evenings. For questions or more information, please contact Rev. Susannah Pittman or Rev. Bret Cogan.

THE FIRST FIFTEEN

The First Fifteen Challenge invites you to take the first 15 minutes of your day, Monday through Friday, and spend it with God by reading a daily scripture, a short reflection, and a daily prayer. These readings will be shaped to help prepare you for worship since they will be guided by the topic of the sermon each Sunday. They will also help us, as a congregation, begin our day by taking a few moments to focus our lives, give thanks to God and ask for God’s guidance for our day. Fifteen minutes is all we are asking you set aside. Fifteen minutes to invite God into your life may be the inspiration we all need to live more fully into who we are as Centenary UMC as we learn to live and love like Jesus!
