MISSIONS

Here at Centenary, one of the ways that we are loving God and loving neighbor is through compassionate service, a vital piece of which is missions. Through grants, volunteers, events, and advocacy, we support and participate in projects, relationships, and development that make the kingdom of God visible here and now. We honor our church’s historic commitments, current involvement, and missional entrepreneurship locally, regionally, and internationally.

If you have any questions about this ministry please contact, Rev. Meg Gaston.

A BED AND A BOOK 

Centenary will be at the Dash Stadium for “A Bed and A Book” on September 24. In preparation for this mission event, we are collecting new, never been used, bedding for twin beds. This includes pillows, bed sheets, mattress protectors, and comforters. They do not need mattresses. Bedding will be given to the children who receive a bed, many of whom have never had one. If you would like to join us on our build day, please sign up below. If you have any questions, contact Rev. Meg Gaston.

Samaritan Ministries - Urgent Need for Volunteers
 

We’ve served lunch without interruption on our sidewalk during the pandemic, and we’re excited to welcome guests back inside the dining room this August.  We need to double the number of volunteers during each lunch shift to 12.  We hope you’ll spread the word to your friends, neighbors, co-workers, church friends, and more about volunteering in the Soup Kitchen.  We need help Monday – Saturday from 9:00 am – 1:30 pm and on Sundays from 10:00 am – 2:30 pm.  Remember that anyone over the age of 13 (with a parent) can volunteer at Samaritan.  We no longer have an age cap at 65, and if you haven't volunteered with us in a while, we would love to see you soon!  You can find out more by visiting our Volunteer webpage at www.samaritanforsyth.org/volunteer/

Haiti Outreach Ministries
 

Nadege Gay, Pastor Leon’s Daughter, will be visiting Centenary on July 31, sharing updates with us on how things are going in Haiti and with our partners at Haiti Outreach Ministries. Feel free to join us in Memorial Auditorium at noon following the 11 am service.

Loaves & Fishes
