SUMMER IN THE PSALMS
We invite you to join us this summer in reading the Psalms! Our 10-week reading plan is organized around the major types of psalms, with each week’s readings highlighting a specific type of psalm. Our reading plan will be available online and around campus prior to our kick-off on June 12. For more information, please contact Rev. Susannah Pittman.
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!
To sign up for the daily devitions, click on our link below and be sure to select "First 15 Daily Devotions."
The Congregational Care Ministry at Centenary is starting a card ministry and would love for you to join us! We are seeking volunteers to assist in writing notes of encouragement. Supplies and recipient lists will be provided, and there is flexibility in time commitment. Please contact Rev. Susannah Pittman for more information or to volunteer.
