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.
