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.

Loaves & Fishes

Loaves & Fishes is a long-standing community ministry at Centenary that provides financial assistance and a food pantry to our neighbors in need. It is open each Tuesday from 10:00-11:30 am in the Haven at 633 W. 4 1/2 St. Volunteers are needed to interview clients, assist with the food pantry, and help with the overall operation of this outreach. To learn more, contact Marianne Bach. To learn how to apply for assistance, click on Loaves & Fishes Procedures below.

Overflow Shelter

From December 1 through March 31, Centenary partners with churches and organizations across Winston-Salem to provide safe, warm, and hospitable places for the homeless to stay when our shelters fill up in the cold months. Centenary houses nightly check-in for the various shelter sites in The Haven at 633 W. 4th St. The overflow shelter creates space for building relationships that lead to long-term uplift for many of our guests, and the relationships formed by guests and volunteers alike are transformative. Volunteers are needed to assist with check-in, stay overnight, help with transportation, and more. To learn more, visit www.citywithdwellings.org.
