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.
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!

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.
