FAITH ENGAGEMENT SURVEY
You are invited to participate in a Gallup poll on Faith Engagement to share your feelings and thoughts about your faith community. Please take a moment to complete this survey highlighted in this email. You will also find the link on the Engagement page of our website.

OLDER ELEMENTARY MISSION WEEK
We are at capacity for Older Elementary Mission Week. However, please register for the waitlist so we can be in touch if someone's plans change. The waitlist also lets us know how many people are interested in the event which helps us plan for future events.
Rising 4th-6th graders are invited to serve and fellowship together during Older Elementary Mission Week this summer. We’ll be together Tuesday-Thursday June 28-30 from 9 AM to 3 PM with a service project in the morning and a fellowship activity after lunch. The cost is $40 per participant which includes a t-shirt, daily fellowship activities, snacks, and supplies. Space is limited so register early in the Realm app or on the Engage page between April 5 and June 1st. Questions? Contact Jeanette Juran (336-724-6311 ext. email@example.com).
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!
