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 Peters.
Winter Overflow Shelter
December 15 - March 28
This vital ministry provides persons experiencing homelessness a meal and a warm place to sleep, and we are honored to be a partner with City with Dwellings in this effort. Centenary furnishes transportation from the check-in site to the overflow shelter on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday evenings. We are in need of drivers and ride-alongs. Ride-alongs help with boarding the busses and serve as an extra pair of eyes for drivers. To volunteer as a driver or a ride-along, please contact Rev. Meg Peters or sign-up below.
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/
